Food: Lactose-free AlproTops Breakfast Day 3 & 4

Hello there! I've been a little absent as it's Christmas, and the time to indulge in family, food and sleep...something I rarely get in the hustle and bustle of London town!

I just wanted to finish a little series of posts I have been doing, as part of my goal of finding healthy but delicious alternatives to gluten and dairy foods. 

Alpro challenged me to taste all of their Big Pot plant based yogurts - Simply Plain, Vanilla, Strawberry with Rhubarb and Lemon & Lime, so I experimented with different toppings every day to make my breakfast little more adventurous.

They sent me a lovely hamper with every flavour, plus lots and lots of pots filled with different healthy but delicious toppings to choose from. You can check out my posts on Day 1 and Day 2 by clicking on each.

By day 3 I started to get a little more adventurous and wasn't really thinking about the different combinations I put together...I wanted to see whether the yoghurt on it's own as a dominant flavour would be enough to be able to mix almost anything with it...and it did work as whatever I put in, it still tasted amazing!

Some of the ingredients like the chia seeds were a little chewy, but I really liked the big pieces of fruit which were quite filling.

The yoghurt was also a great snack or pudding alternative.

The doilies are hand made, vintage coasters I got at a small market in a church in Hackney. They were only £5 and look really pretty on the table even with no glasses on them :)

You can buy them on eBay (click to go through) or Etsy, too.

I can't actually remember where I found this beautiful faux lavender bunch, but it's been sitting on the shelf in my bathroom to brighten it up a little. The gorgeous framed pressed flowers are from an Etsy seller called Mingo Gardens, and make a great gift. Each is a one-off unique item, so I got really lucky with this stunning frame!

The bowl was a gift from Alpro, but you can find similar ones at Anthropologie.

Dark Chocolate - Powerful source of antioxidants (yes it's good for you, but only dark!)

Cinnamon Cinnamon helps control your blood sugar, which influences your risk of heart disease

Dried MangoRich in Vitamin C which is 80% daily value. Vitamin C has an important role in boosting the body's immune system to prevent diseases. Also, it promotes faster healing of wounds

Dried CranberryCranberry juice and cranberries are often recommended for the prevention and treatment of urinary tract and bladder infections. They are indeed highly calorific and sugary, so eat in small amounts

I really hope that my recommendations will inspire you to be more adventurous with your brekkies, or to just try using several different ingredients with one of the delicious Alpro yoghurts!

Everyone is different, and that means everyone's digestive system is very different...I can't possibly know what suits you best or what your tummy likes but it's always worth trying new things to figure that good luck and I hope that I can help you find healthier, delicious alternatives to your favourite foods.
