Vegan Coconut & Almond Milk Bircher (V) (DF) (GF) (SF)

OH. MY. GOODNESS – how have I never thought about creating coconut & almond bircher before?! I have been living off nothing else since I created this recipe yesterday and I really hope you’ll love it just as much as me.

This recipe is so super easy to throw together, it’s great for people on the run who’s not good at eating breakfast because it takes up too much time (!) – NAUGHTY! Breakfast is the most important meal of the day as it kickstarts your metabolism and sets you up for the rest of the day.

When we soak grains like we do in this Bircher it renders the nutrients in the grain so it becomes more digestible and more easily assimilated by our bodies. The soaking breaks down some of the hard-to-digest proteins, making assimilation much easier, and neutralises phytic acid, which is an anti-nutrient that prevents absorption of minerals such as calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc, and copper.

It’s sweet and creamy all together with a hint of cinnamon and delicious vanilla from the almond milk mixed with the coconut – it’s really a match-made in heaven!

Please let me know in the comments what you think of it?

  • Hi Caroine,
    I’ve been loving your website posts! You’re such a wonderful inspiration. I see you use Almond Breeze brand almond milk. I used the same brand for a long time too. I changed to a different brand because Almond Breeze contains a controversial ingredient called carrageenan. With your health concerns, please take a few minutes to research carrageenan for yourself so you can make your own determination. I have heard Silk brand almond milk does not contain carrageenan but again, please do your own research and decide for yourself.
    My thoughts are with you and I wish you the very best, FULL recovery.
    Thank you for teaching me about health and yoga. I’ve never done yoga but it is calling to me :)
    Take care,
    Traci
