    Default Mixed Berry Couscous

    I did this to just serve me, something I threw together from a vast distance after thinking 'god I need something new for breakfast'.

    1/4 cup of couscous
    1/2 cup of unsweetened apple and black current juice (total)
    1 cinnamon stick
    handfull of raspberries, blueberries and strawberries
    2 teaspoons of lemon and lime zest
    1 teaspoon of mint leaves finely shredded
    1/4 cup of plain low fat european styled yogurt.
    drizzle of honey.

    1. Place the couscous in a bowl.

    2. In a saucepan put the fruit juices and cinnamon stick, bring to the boil then pour over couscous. Cover the bowl and leave to stand for 5 minutes.
    3. Remove the cinnamon stick and put in the fridge.

    4. When cool seperate couscous with a fork untill light and fluffy, add the berries, lime and lemon zest and mint and gently fold through. Put yougusrt on top, drizzle with honey and top with any remaining zest.

    I guess you could use all kinds of flavours for this but I'm such a berry freak. Citrus would go nicely, as would any drived fruit and nuts if you wanted to go in that direction. Sweeten it a little and you could even have it as a dessert or, in smaller portions, as a mid afternoon snack.

    Thanks Lani.

    I made this today without strawberries and ate it very warm. It was delicious this way.
