Did you ever think where the word “breakfast” is coming from?

One day I had an insight (you know one of those days when you feel particularly smart) and realised that this word is coming from Break a Fast. The word author obviously assumed you didnt stop at the kebab shop in the night on your way home from a party! Or at least you didnt eat anything while you were sleeping = you were fasting. Genius, init?!

Please welcome one of my favourite ways to break a fast in style! Start a day with this delicious berry (?), granoly (?!) and creamy cocktail.

Ingredients:

  • Frozen strawberries (or any other berries you like)
  • Coconut milk (or yogurt if you wish)
  • Agave nectar
  • oat/granola/mix of grated nuts (to taste;-)
You will also need:
  • a handblender
  • a beautiful tall glass πŸ˜‰

Take your frozen berries out of the freezer and let them defrost for about an our. Do not let them defrost completely. They must become softer so that you could blend them, but still should not be completely soft. I learned this trick from Tracy Anderson, mine and Gwyneth Paltrow’s personal trainer πŸ˜‰ . Β Using only semi defrosted berries Does make a difference!
Get your agave nectar ready
I love it! It is very nice and guilt-free. Low GI means this nectar won’t affect your blood sugar lever, which is good πŸ˜‰

Its now time for a coconut milk! I prefer it to the dairy because my organism definitely likes it more than traditional milk products. But it is up to you – feel free use your yogurt!


Now blend the berries with your hand blender.
In a tall glass put layers:
Coconut milk
Oats/granola or crashed nuts
Blended frozen berries
Sprinkle each layer with a few drops of agave. Kiss you second half…

and indulge!
