Make sure you buy dried fruit without preservatives. You can substitute any of the dried fruit with your favourites, depending on what you have available. Buy organic puffed rice. Have with soy, almond or rice milk and some fresh berries scattered on top. You can also add a good dollop of yoghurt if you tolerate dairy food. To make a larger quantity, you can just double or triple the recipe.
