CADA – Coconut Apple Date and Almond Breakfast

Breakfast was often a really fun time of the day when all our children lived at home. I fondly remember the joy and laughter shared around the kitchen table and the delicious food we ate together. My sons are both keen breakfast chefs and often treated us to perfect poached eggs or enormous pancake stacks! Another firm favourite is CADA, especially on a busy morning, because it’s ready in a flash.

This delicious, very quick breakfast is recommended by internationally renowned nutritionist Cyndi O’Meara. Invented by her friend Fleur, it was featured in Cyndi’s book ‘Changing Habits Changing Lives’ and has now become world famous amongst Thermomix users! CADA provides plenty of energy and protein to start your day well and help keep you going. It’s also great as an after-school snack or an easy healthy dessert.

Feel free to add one or more tasty extras to your CADA depending on what you have on hand. Young children might like to choose their own extras at the table. In our photos, we served it with homemade Greek yoghurt, fresh raspberries and a sprig of fresh mint from the garden. I also like topping it with chopped kiwi fruits, ripe peaches or pitted sweet cherries and a sprinkle of chia seeds or a few chopped Brazil nuts. Be imaginative and have fun with your breakfasts!

This recipe is suitable for Thermomix TM5 and TM31.

Janie’s Tips

  1. If using fresh coconut, the thin brown skin can be left on if desired.
  2. Other nutritious ingredients can be added before mincing too, e.g. thinly sliced ginger, freshly squeezed lemon juice, a quartered pear, seeds, other nuts of choice.
  3. Easily doubled or tripled with same timings.
