Recipe from nutritionnist Louise Lambert-Lagacé
High in fibre (7 grams) and protein (17 grams), this breakfast parfait will keep you going until lunch.The lipids contained in the recipe are essentially from the walnuts, which are a source of heart-healthy polyunsaturated fats. Greek yogurt provides many health benefits. It’s a very high source of protein and it’s fat free.
Here it’s a classic French dessert – Coeur à la crème - typically made with cream cheese, mascarpone, cream and a little powdered sugar. By substituting 0% Plain Greek Yogurt for the mascarpone, you end up with a much lighter dessert with a smoother texture and all the flavour of the original. You can use any fruit coulis, sauce or even jam that you like. Or, you know, if you're feeling decadent, you can always serve it with a hot chocolate sauce, or even caramel. It's a very versatile dessert in terms of toppings and because it is so plain and not too sweet, you can dress it up or down as you please.
A Sunday brunch with family or friends is the perfect time to unwind before another work week, to indulge a little, and to eat foods a little different from your hasty weekday meals. This happy respite also allows for a little culinary dazzle. Why not try out some kefir pancakes on your guests? This fermented milk product can turn the lowly pancake into something truly original.
Instead of using milk in your usual pancake recipe, use Liberté strawberry or raspberry kefir, which will give your pancakes a unique taste. You can also add some fresh or frozen berries to the recipe. Here’s my tip: While the pancakes are cooking, add some raspberries or sliced strawberries to the centre of the pancake. When it’s time to eat, your guests will be treated to an explosion of fruit in the middle. Deliciousness guaranteed!
