Add some tropical fun into your morning with this grab-and-go breakfast.

PAPAYA is jam-packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, but only nine out of 10 Australians actually eat this tropical fruit.

Here's an easy way you can add some into your mornings - even if your breakfast is usually of the grab-and-go variety.

Ingredients

  •  2 1/2 Cups rolled oats
  • 1 Ruby Rise Red Papaya, seeds removed, 3/4 chopped roughly, 1/4 sliced
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • 1 Cup toasted Coconut
  • 1 Cup coconut yoghurt
  • 1 Cup Almond milk
  • 1 Tsp maple syrup

Method

Combine oats, coconut yoghurt, almond milk, coconut and syrup in a small bowl. Stir well.

Cover and let it sit overnight in the fridge.

When ready to serve, prepare the Papaya puree. Blend 3/4 of the chopped papaya in a blender with lime juice. Blend until smooth.

Layer the base of 2 mason jars with papaya puree, then layer a sprinkle of toasted coconut on top. Add the oats until there is 3 cm left in the jar.

Top the oats with sliced papaya pieces and remaining toasted coconut.

Serves 2.
