  • 1 cup apple juice
  • 1/2 cup brown rice couscous
  • 1 cup mixed berries
  • 1/4 cup coconut flakes (remove if avoiding coconut)
  • 1/4 cup almonds, chopped (or sunflower or pumpkin seeds for nut-free)
  • To serve: dairy free yogurt, honey (optional)


  • Place apple juice in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Stir in the brown rice couscous, cover with a lid, and reduce heat to low. Cook for 13-15 minutes (don't lift the lid).
  • Remove from the heat and allow to rest for 5 minutes, then fluff with a fork. 
  • Stir in the berries, coconut flakes and almonds (or sunflower seeds if nut-free) - mix gently.
  • Divide into 2 bowls and serve with a dollop of dairy free yogurt and drizzle with honey.


**If you can't find brown rice couscous, you can use quinoa in this recipe
