Trying out different breakfast ideas with Alpro Tops

May 2, 2014

If you follow me on Instagram, or Like my Facebook page, you’ve probably seen plenty of breakfasts popping up all over the place. I’ve been really enjoying mixing up my breakfasts (like green smoothies) and trying out ideas to make the mornings just that little bit more interesting.

I was recently asked by the lovely people at Alpro to take part in a new campaign they are running called Alpro Tops, which was perfect timing. The idea behind the campaign is to try out different toppings upon your bowl of Alpro soya yogurt. I absolutely love having soya yogurt in the morning, and I usually stick to a sprinkling of granola and some fresh fruit, so it was great to try out ingredients that I would never have picked up before – like chia seeds and pistachios.

My first ‘creation’ was pretty good – vanilla soya yogurt with chia and flax seeds, blueberries, raspberries and a few pecans on top. Delish! I think I should have used more seeds, but never mind. And yes, I got a little obsessed with the detail and pattern when it came to putting together the bowl ;)

This bowl seems so dull now, though! I got a bit more adventurous and stepped outside my comfort zone as I experimented more.

I received a delivery from Scrummybox a few weeks ago, and included in the box was a bottle of organic cinnamon agave syrup. This was the perfect time to try it out, so I drizzled it onto a bowl of plain soya yogurt and topped it off with pistachios and cranberries.

Footnote: I don’t have three fingers, I have four. I’m just not quite sure where my index finger is hiding in this photograph…

My third breakfast was probably my favourite. I started with a bowl of lemon and lime yogurt, which is incredible. Seriously! I can’t believe I’ve never tried it before, it’s insanely good. Anyway, I topped it off with chunks of dried pineapple, orange-infused raisins, flaked almonds and sunflower seeds. I wish that I’d had coconut in, because then it would have truly been a tropical fiesta – next time, eh.

So there are my three #AlproTops creations so far. What do you think? I’ll be posting more next week, and will definitely be carrying on with this experimental phase that I seem to be having in the mornings.

Are you a fan of yogurt in the morning?
Any of these take your fancy?

    Yoghurt, berries and granola/muesli is a favourite combo of mine in the warmer weather. A really lovely idea to inject more variety into your breakfast.

      Got to love fresh fruit when it’s in season! I’m really enjoying adding different things and learning about how good they are for you.
