It's a carrot and fruit non-dairy (and thus vegan) version of the fruit and nut with yogurt Swiss Muesli featured in a December Kitchen Parade column and which 15-year old Matthew took to calling 'slump' as he made it for our breakfast several times over Christmas.
Slump. It's a good name, yes?
I wondered if the carrot would seem, well, off, a gratuitous addition only to include a vegetable. But it was good, really good; the carrot matched beautifully with the pineapple.
NUTRITION NOTES ... I can't imagine living without oatmeal or fruit but Carb Counters, sorry, Slump is off limits for you. Weight Watchers, be sure to watch portion size, it'd be easy to consume more points than you want.
NEXT TIME ... I'll fool around with fresh fruit, perhaps a few nuts. This is a great way to use up odds and ends in the pantry.
