This recipe is not my own discovery. In the world of Thermomix users it’s a well known concoction, with each of the initials corresponding to each of the ingredients. I decided to add some ‘zing’ with orange, cinnamon and cacao nibs and turned it into a creamy breakfast yoghurt bowl!

This is a super simple recipe. Great for breakfast or as a refreshing but filling snack. Like most of my favourite recipes this one is endlessly versatile...change up the nuts and fruits to suit your taste or what you have to hand. The fresh coconut is a must, and this is one of the only recipes I keep fresh coconut to hand for. I also use dates for their versatility and subtle sweetness but other dried fruits could be used.

I think what I actually love most about this recipe is it’s ‘what you see is what you get’ philosohy. All the ingredients are still visible in their original form, blitzed a little and mixed. Keep it nice and chunky for great texture.  

Recipe: CADA...zing!

Serves 2


Approx. ¼ cup chunks of fresh coconut
1 small apple- quartered and cored*
4-5 small dates (I used deglet nor)
¼ cup whole almonds

(optional extras)
1 small orange
½ cup vegan yoghurt
1 tsp orange zest
Cacao nibs


Prepare the CADA ingredients and add to the Thermomix bowl, or other high power food processor and pulse together until chunky.

To serve, layer up the orange segments into the bottom of a small bowl, top with yoghurt, add the CADA mix and then garnish with zest, cacao nibs and cinnamon as desired.

*add a splash of fresh lemon if not serving immediately to prevent from browning. CADA mix will store in the fridge for a few days.

  1. This looks fantastic! I love how it seems like it might taste a bit granola like, but with a much, much healthier slant. I'm definitely making it the next time I have the chance :)

    1. Yes, it is a bit like a softer 'pudding' version of granola....lots of texture too so I love it!

  2. Be grateful for superb recipes. I merely got and yes it tasted great: -)
