Yoghurt Soup With Dates, Brazil Nuts & Blueberries

yoghurt blueberries soup recipe
Breakfast soup, smoothie soup or sweet dessert soup – you can call this whatever you like but it’s essentially a healthier version of cereal and milk or porridge. Dates and brazil nuts pair really well and the yoghurt based soup adds a little zing to those flavours.

Use this recipe as a variation to the breakfast yoghurt bowl we have in the Rejuvenate program. Even though there is some protein in yoghurt and nuts, you should still add a side of protein to make this a complete meal (e.g. sliced chicken, good quality ham, cooked prawns or steak).

What’s good about it: great for your gut health and digestion; banana and blueberries are high in antioxidants and mood boosting nutrients; brazil nuts are a great source of magnesium and together with dates provide a decent amount of dietary fibre. Oh, and don’t forget the chia seeds with some additional Omega-3 fatty acids. Rich in: Manganese, Calcium, Vitamin C,  Vitamin B-6.

Cook's notes: You can make this into a strawberry based soup instead of banana, which is also quite nice. Brazil nuts can be replaced with almonds, hazelnuts or macadamia nuts. Dates can be replaced with dried apricots or figs. Blueberries can be replaced with other berries.
