1 carrot, peeled, grated
200g rolled oats
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
2 cups trim milk or So-Good™ Almond & Coconut Unsweetened milk

Spicy nut mix topping
1/4 cup pistachios, finely chopped
2 tsp white or black sesame seeds
1/2 tsp ground cumin (optional)
1 tsp finely grated orange zest

To serve

Greek yoghurt, orange segments


  1. Mix together the grated carrot, oats, spices and milk. Cover and place in the refrigerator to soak overnight.
  2. To make the spicy nut mix topping, toast the sesame seeds and pistachio nuts in a dry pan until golden brown. Using a sharp knife or food processor, roughly chop the toasted pistachios and sesame seeds with the cumin and orange zest. Place in a jar with a lid and set aside.
  3. Next day, tip the soaked cereal into a saucepan and add another half cup of milk. Heat for 7-8 minutes on a low heat until most of liquid is absorbed. Alternatively, place in a heat proof bowl and cover. Place in microwave and cook on high for 3 minutes.
  4. Serve with Greek yoghurt, slices of orange and spicy nut mix topping.
