Hello, hello! The first signs of spring are starting to appear, the daylight stays a little bit longer and and Mother’s Day and Easter are coming which means a few days off for me and maybe some more yummy recipes for you!! Yippee!
I am a lucky girl, because the other day I got sent some lovely yogurts to play with from Provamel. I have made these gorgeous Fruit and yogurt parfaits using their products. By now you have probably noticed that their soya zero sugar yogurt is my favourite, so imagine how I felt when they released some new flavours...coconut soya and almond soya.... Amazing! I love coconuts and I love almonds, so I couldn't ask for a better choice really.
First up is the almond version and Popcorn trifle. The traditional trifle usually comes with jelly, custard and cream, but I decided to make my own healthy but equally tasty trifle with popcorn! Yes, you heard it correctly, popcorn. Who says popcorn belongs only to cinema goers?! In this recipe I used kiwi and sharon fruit, but feel free to get creative and replace them with any other fruit you like.
Get a nice big pot and heat up the coconut oil on a medium heat. Once the oil has melted and hot, throw the kernels in along with the salt and mix well. Cover with a tight- fitting lid, shake to coat the kernels and leave them on a medium heat for around 5 minutes. You should soon start to hear some big popping. After 5 mins, or once the popping noise has subsided, remove the pot from the heat and leave to stand for a minute or so until the popping has completely stopped.
Now for the trifle (serves 2)
1 Almond Soya Provamel yogurt
2 tbsp chia seeds
Method: Mix the yogurt with chia seeds. Get two nice tall glasses and arrange a few tablespoons of the chia yogurt mixture in the base of the glasses. Top with kiwi, followed by a handful of popcorn. Add another layer of yogurt followed by sharon fruit and then top with more popcorn. Transfer to the fridge until ready to serve!
