For those times, when you crave something to chew on in the morning; for those times, when you need a quick to go breakfast/lunch and for those times, when you want to make someone a very special morning, this BREAKFAST IN A JAR is the answer. It’s relatively low in fat (only some healthy fats from a little amount of nuts and seeds), contains all the fruit you need to get in in the morning and it amazes with its different textures and overwhelming flavors.


Caramel pudding
  • 2 small ripe bananas
  • 6 almonds, soaked in water for at least 1 h or overnight (leave out for a nut-free version)
  • 4 pitted medjool dates
  • 1 pinch of cinnamon
  • 1/2 t pure vanilla extract
  • 2 T JumpUp and GoGo Original or Vegan (the Classic one contains bee pollen)
  • OR 2 T raw cacao/carob powder
  • 1/4 cup water
Apple orange compote
  • 2 medium sweet apples, 2 medium oranges, 2 tangerines , 1 T cinnamon powder, few drops pure vanilla extract, 3 T lemon juice, 1 t raw agave syrup (raw honey, or any other liquid sweetener you like)
No-dehydrate muesli
  • 1/4 cup + 1 T sunflower seeds, 2 T sesame seeds, 6 almonds, soaked in water for at least 1 h or overnight (leave out for a nut-free version), 4 pitted medjool dates, 1 T lemon juice, 1 t raw agave syrup (or any other sweetener you like)
Fresh fruit layer
  • 1 medium orange


For the caramel pudding
  1. Blend almonds in water.
  2. Add bananas, dates, cinnamon, vanilla, JumpUp and GoGo or cacao/carob and blend until smooth.
  3. Place in fridge overnight to let it harden (will be an awesome pudding the next morning, I promise — I could turn the cup around without the pudding moving a bit).
For the compote
  1. Chop all fruits and mix in a small bowl with lemon juice, cinnamon and vanilla. Cover with a lid or wrap and let sit in the fridge overnight to let the flavors develop.
For the muesli
  1. Process 1/4 cup sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, almonds and dates until chunky. In a bowl, add lemon juice and agave syrup and mix well to get crumble.
  2. For the fresh fruit, chop your orange.
  3. The next day, layer compote, muesli, fresh fruit and pudding.
