Ingredients

  • 5 medium green-skinned apples (750g)
  • 2 cups (180g) rolled oats
  • 1 cup (250ml) milk
  • 250 g (8oz) strawberries
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup

Method

  • 1
    Using a juicer, juice 3 apples; you will need 1 cup of juice.
  • 2
    Place oats, milk and apple juice in a large bowl; stir to combine. Cover; refrigerate overnight.
  • 3
    Coarsely grate 1 apple. Cut remaining apple into matchsticks. Fold grated apple into oat mixture.
  • 4
    Thinly slice 4 strawberries; reserve to serve. Slice remaining strawberries; place in a medium bowl. Using a wooden spoon, mash strawberries until crushed coarsely. Stir in maple syrup.
  • 5
    Layer the muddled strawberries and oat mixture in a shallow serving dish or four 1½ cup (375ml) glasses, finishing with some of the muddled strawberries. Serve topped with the apple matchsticks and reserved sliced strawberries.

Notes

Instead of making your own apple juice use a store-bought cloudy apple juice, if you prefer. Make double the oat mixture to eat during the week; store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. Layer with different fruit each day.
