Serve cold, with freshly cut tropical fruits and chilled milk of choice: Dairy milk, or non dairy milks by Pure Harvest – served in side ceramic 50ml jug.

Add a generous dollop of marscapone adds a luxurious texture. The dish is completed with freeze-dried rhubarb batons for flavour ‘pop’ and crunch and a small side dusting of freeze-dried banana powder (go easy on it as it can overpower).

‘The Wild’ (lime & coconut muesli) makes a incredible granola topping as the recipe includes: Raw activated buckwheat clusters rolled in raw mesquite and lime peel oil: sprinkled with crunchy coconut chips, dried inca berries, raw nuts, prebiotic rich tigernuts and seeds.
