Blood Orange Breakfast Yogurt

 

As I write this, I still have the sweetness of the blood oranges in my mouth. They are so good! Honestly, I love them. The specific oranges are not sour, rather quite sweet. So they are perfect for people that dislike the natural sourness of regular oranges. Blood oranges are usually smaller than the common orange with a deep red blush on their outer skin. The inside flesh varies from completely red to partly red. Their skin is hard to peel, so use a sharp knife.

This dish is good for breakfast, snack or even light dinner if you like. In this case, I used rolled oats to go with. They contain only 1 g of sugar per serving and lots of fiber. They are also a good source of Vitamins A & D, phosphorus, magnesium and calcium. You can use granola if you like, just make sure in the Nutrition table that it doesn’t contain too much sugar.

I also added flaxseed. I have come to adore flaxseed, it has a great earthy taste and its crunchy to the tooth. Its perfect for yogurt and salads. On top of that its it ranks very high for its health benefits. It contains lots of fatty acids, dietary fiber, several B vitamins, iron, calcium and magnesium among others. It’s good for you!

Now to make this breakfast yogurt is fairly easy. In a bowl add the yogurt and the rolled oats. Let it sit for like 5 mins so the oats soak a little and become softer. Peel the blood oranges. Cut off the two edges and then put the halves face down. Cut along stripes of peel from top to bottom. Carefully not to apple too much pressure and squeeze out much of the juice. They are tricky to peel so use a sharp knife. Then, add the flaxseeds and the dried fruit in. Squeeze the remaining orange half. Lastly you sprinkle on top the peeled orange pieces. Give it a stir and its ready for you to enjoy!
