Recipe Notes

Blueberries are another food well known for their positive impact on the brain. You can use fresh ones too but the juices from defrosted blueberries mixes nicely into the yogurt, colouring and flavouring it - plus they are cheaper!

These are also nice served with plain yogurt or crème fraîche.
