Delicious Fruity Minty Granola

Ingredients
  • Granola
  • Fresh Mint
  • Yoghurt
  • 1 Packet Raspberries
  • 1 Orange
  • 1 Lemon

I don’t know about you but I find it really fucking hard to eat in the mornings never mind make something nice what with trying to get dressed and out the door in time. More often than not I end up eating those shitty pastries the coffee shops sell or energy bars so I wanted to come up with something incredibly healthy that you could just fuck into you in 5 minutes and that would release energy slowly over the course of the morning. You have no idea how good this tastes.

Instructions

Step 1

So the ingredients are really simple but the fresh stuff really livens things up. Also don't be a cheap bastard and splash out on a decent granola.

Step 2

Lash the raspberries into a bowl. You can make this mixture in advance on a Sunday and just top whip them out of the fridge each morning.

Step 4

This is the tricky part where you have to run your knife around the outside of the orange. You don't to be doing this half asleep in the morning! Do it in advance trust me!

Step 7

What you are doing here is taking out all the segments of orange pulp. This is a real chef type trick so pat yourself on the back you've learnt something new and none of those annoying pulpy orange bits. Pure flesh baby!

Step 8

When they are all out squeeze the shit out of it so as all the juice goes into the bowl. So that is the fruit mix done. Like I said make enough of this in advance and just have it covered in the fridge.

Step 13

Grab your big sharp knife and cut it into as thin little strips as you can. Don't fucking cut yourself!

Step 14

Stir the whole thing up. Again you can make this yoghurt in advance so as you can just pull it out of the fridge in the morning and pour it on.

Don’t just think that this is some boring old granola recipe because it tastes way better than that and crucially you can prepare half of this in advance and you won’t get bored of it after a couple of days. Lash it all up on a Sunday night and fire it into you before you walk out the door and sit back and marvel at the additional energy boost you get.
