Strawberry & Mango Bircher

This is a quick and easy bircher breakfast, but if you have more time or the inclination, puree half the mango flesh and half of the strawberries in a blender first. Fold it through the oat mixture before stirring in the remaining chopped strawberries and mango. Delicious!

Jennifer’s Tip

To prepare the mangoes, cut the mango in half down either side of the flat stone that runs through the centre of the fruit, so that you end up with two fleshy halves. Now take each mango half and cut into the flesh, making quite chunky diagonal pieces – take care not to cut through the skin. Turn each half inside out, then slice away the chunks of mango that stand proud from the skin. Cut the flesh from around the stones.
