How to prepare this delicious yogurt cup recipe:
This is undoubtedly a very simple recipe to prepare. However, it is imperative that you start with the preparation of the jam so that it has time to cool down.
Step 1: create homemade strawberry jam
First, begin by gathering all the ingredients in a saucepan. The frozen strawberries, chia seeds, and maple syrup. Then mix them very well. With the ingredients already well combined, turn on the stove to medium heat and stir occasionally. The mixture will thicken over time. Turn it off once it reaches a texture you like. Typically, this step takes about 10 minutes to ensure that the jam has a good consistency. It’s advisable to let the jam cool for a few minutes before adding it to the yogurt.
Step 2: simple assembly
Once the jam has cooled down a bit, you can assemble your cup of this delight. First, place a generous spoonful of yogurt at the bottom of each cup. Next, add the homemade strawberry jam over the yogurt. To finish, sprinkle with whole-grain cornflakes on top. This adds a crunchy and satisfying texture. Alternatively, you can add another topping of your choice.
