330 calories per serving

1 small apple, quartered, cored and coarsely grated
100g frozen mixed berries or fresh berries in season
50g jumbo porridge oats
25g flaked almonds, toasted
8 ready-to-eat dried apricots, roughly chopped
75g full-fat live Greek yogurt or plant-based yogurt
100ml full-fat milk or plant-based milk

1. Place the apple in a large bowl then stir in the frozen berries, oats, almonds, apricots, yogurt and enough milk to reach a soft, creamy consistency (it will thicken as it stands). Cover and refrigerate for several hours or overnight.

2. Serve in small bowls (or take to work in lidded pots) and add extra milk, if needed. This keep well for up to 2 days if chilled.
