You can add some cacao nibs or mango chunks to the strawberry puree for more crunch and texture if desired. The puree gets its gel-like texture from the addition of psyllium husk and chia seed. These two ingredients don’t just alter the texture but also up the nutritional value tremendously.

You can either buy coconut yoghurt in the supermarket or make your own Homemade Coconut Milk YoghurtIf you don’t know what to do with the leftover mango check out this Vegan Mango Lassi Overnight Oats recipe.

Benefits of Psyllium Husk

Most of us struggle to eat the recommended amount of fibre each day and that’s where psyllium husk comes in handy.

Psyllium husk is an edible soluble fibre and prebiotic. It’s often referred to as a bulking fibre because when you ingest it, it expands, forming a gel-like mass by drawing water in from the colon.

It then promotes easy elimination by sweeping waste out of the colon more quickly and efficiently. Furthermore, psyllium husk is known to have positive effects on heart health and cholesterol levels. Studies have also shown that psyllium is safe, well-tolerated and improves glycemic control for people with diabetes. Unlike stimulant laxatives, psyllium husk is gentle and not addictive.

Easter Traditions

This time I was really struggling to come up with a traditional but healthy Easter recipe. When I grew up we always used to eat dyed, hard-boiled eggs and a yeast plait with jam and butter for Easter brunch. I am not sure where the tradition with the yeast plait originates from but this year I thought I would give it a twist.

Well, actually I just changed its shape to a sheep shape. It was delicious but unfortunately, I didn’t manage to come up with a healthy version of it. For this reason, I sadly don’t have a recipe to share but I still wanted to share the picture because it’s kind of cute.

Here in Ireland, everybody seems to be crazy for cream eggs which I have never seen in Germany before. But don’t feel sorry for me I used to get Easter Chocolate Bunnies instead.

Even though I used to like them I am sure that I would have been quite impressed by Strawberry Puree With Coconut Yoghurt that looks like little hens.
