Oats & Fruits Parfait ! 🌱🍓Perfect breakfast, dessert or snack ! Simple, soak oats overnight with your choice of plant based milk kept in the fridge, I used almond. Next day add different cut up fruits, your favorites 😊, then toppings could be nuts, or shavings (coconut, almond) I also like to add additional nutrients such as chia seeds, flax, hempseeds. Then drizzle a little maple syrup to sweeten it. Set it up in a beautiful glass, when you can eat something with your eyes 👀 before you actually have tasted, it is even better 😋
