Lifestyle: Alprotops Breakfast Challenge.

Along with a lot of people, one of my New Years resolutions is to be healthier. Alpro lent me a helping hand at getting started by sending me a little care hamper* including four of their Big Pot soya-based alternative to yoghurt flavours and an array of different toppings, presenting me with their Alprotops challenge to put a healthy twist on a blank yoghurt canvas, and come up with my own healthy combinations using the ingredients provided.

The first combination I tried out was with their vanilla-flavoured yoghurt, topped with bitesize shredded wheat, banana, cashews and dark chocolate flakes; a guilt-free solution to a sweet tooth!

For my second day of the Alprotops challenge, I decided to switch it up with a parfait-style layered breakfast. I used their Strawberry & Rhubarb flavoured yoghurt (my personal favourite!) and layered it up with oatmeal and berries, topped with chia seeds and muesli. Also, how cool is the personalised spoon that Alpro sent me?!

For day three, I went for Alpro's plain yoghurt so I thought I would go to town on the toppings, adding a sliced banana, dried mango cubes, shredded coconut, goji berries and flax seed.
Alpro's soya-based Big Pots, like all of Alpro's products, are 100% plant-based and are a great alternative to yoghurts for those people with lactose and gluten intolerances. They are currently available in four tasty flavours; plain, vanilla lemon & lime and strawberry & rhubarb, and can be picked up in selected Tesco stores.
What toppings would you choose to liven up your breakfast?
