A selection of tasty snack jars

Yum Pot – ready to grab & go!

We keep a selection of yum jars in the fridge.

It makes a lovely addition to weekend or celebration brunch but equally wonderful dessert or any-time grab and go snack pot!

You can create many layers (Parfait) by adding left-over kefir smoothies if required thickened with chia.

This started in our kitchen when Thierry was a toddler and had his own small bar fridge and mama would load with food.

The chosen choices were mostly savoury and Thierry would often create dips mixed with cucumber pickles and other mix-ins in the empty jars that contained fresh veggie sticks and when asked ‘what are you eating?’ the reply ‘a magic pot full of yum’.

The magic begins

A creamy jar of nourishing coconut yogurt topped with raw cacao nibs.

Add ¼ cup pureed fresh or frozen fruit to 1 cup of coconut yoghurt.

 Stir to incorporate and enjoy!
