The new darling in our household is tart cherry juice. I’d been reading for years about its healthful properties, but never got around to actually purchasing any. For health reasons, it is now a staple in our household, and I am finding more and more delightful uses for it. True, two tablespoons in a glass of distilled water makes an attractive and delicious after-lunch drink, but there are other ways to enjoy it, too.
To add to my delight, I read recently that oatmeal and orange juice have great healthful properties when combined. I have been putting orange juice, instead of milk, on my cereal for as long as I can remember, so this brought a smile to my face as well.
The yogurt that I put on top of the cereal is very thick, so what seems like a small amount is really quite adequate to add dairy to my breakfast. Underneath the blanket of chia, sesame and sunflower seeds that you can see are chopped up bits of about six different fresh fruits, in addition to the dried cranberries and diced dates that are in the five-grain cereal itself.
When I make my cereal this morning, I will use up most of the remaining yogurt, so today is the day I make more! ;->
