INTERVIEW WITH @greatescape_v
I've been quite busy at work that I have to skip meals sometimes. But no matter how busy I am, I will not forego my breakfast. This is a super easy and quick breakfast to get your day started. It has lots of health benefits, and because it is high in fibre, just a cup of parfait can help you feel full longer.
Serves 1 parfait
Prep time: 10 min
Total time: 10 min
100g Chinese Yam
½ tsp AJISAI / Matcha powder (sieved)
20g Cold Water
Green grapes (or your choice of fruits)
Method To Assemble
- Clean and cut the Chinese Yam into small pieces. Then, microwave for 2 mins (You may take it out during the intervals and mash it with a fork so that it will blend easily when using the blender later).
- Add AJISAI / Matcha powder, some honey, and water to the softened Chinese Yam. Then, mix with a hand blender until the mixture is well combined and reaches a yoghurt-like consistency (If the mixture is still too warm, you may leave it at room temperature for a few minutes to cool down before assemble).
- To assemble the parfait, fill the cold glass with a layer of Matcha Chinese Yam then followed by cornflakes / granola / muesli, fruits, nuts and drizzle some honey. Repeat layers until the glass is full.
