Helpful Hints and Tips
I top my bircher with almond and fennel praline to give it even more excitement and crunch! I’ve given you the recipe for my Almond and Fennel Praline in this eBook so you can try it for yourself.
- 40 g (1.4 oz) almond flour or meal
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1-2 tsp Pure as Inulin Powder
- 100 ml (3.5 fl oz) coconut milk or non-dairy milk of your choice
- 50 ml (1.7 fl oz) coconut water
- 2 tbsp coconut yoghurt
- 1 small green apple
- 1-2 tsp almond and fennel praline (see recipe in this eBook)
- Place the almond flour, chia seeds and inulin into a bowl and stir to combine. Add the milk and coconut water and stir again to mix thoroughly.
- At this point, you will need to allow the mixture to soak and thicken for at least 20 minutes or even overnight. (continue to page 2)
- When you are ready to serve, fold in the coconut yoghurt and cut the apple into thin matchsticks and fold through.
- Spoon the bircher into a serving bowl, glass or jar and finish with a good sprinkling of the praline.
- This dish is best eaten within a couple of hours of being made to ensure the apple maintains its crunch.
