Mango pudding

Blend 1 cubed, frozen mango, 1 large avocado, 2 sliced frozen bananas and 2 t fresh turmeric until smooth. Top with 2 Woolies raw apple, almond, ginger and cinnamon date balls, broken into pieces, and 25 g roughly chopped raw pistachio nuts.

Overnight coconut oats

Soak 60 g rolled oats in 1 x 400 ml can coconut milk overnight. Fold in 2 T cranberries and top with torn fresh figs, flaked almonds and toasted coconut chips.

Spiced barley pudding

In a saucepan, combine 150 g Woolies ready-to-eat barley, 1⁄2 t ground cardamom, 1⁄2 t ground cinnamon, 4 chopped dates, 1 T honey and 1 cup almond milk, and heat until warmed through.
