Purple Ombre Layered Breakfast Jar

COLORFUL BREAKFAST JAR

Overnight oats are great for busy mornings because they’re so delicious and filling, and super easy to make. I love playing with different flavors,  toppings, or colors, so I can never get bored.  This time I wanted a colorful breakfast jar, so I added blue spirulina and pink pitaya powders. I always have so much fun experimenting with these natural colors.  If you want to know more about natural food colorings, check out Color Me Naturally for some info.

Servings: Makes 2 small or 1 big jar.

BLUE SPIRULINA POWDER

Blue spirulina is a blue pigment derived from blue-green algae. It’s very rich in protein, vitamins, minerals, carotenoids, and antioxidants.

The powder is very mild in flavor, almost flavorless. It’s perfect for coloring raw cakes, smoothies, lattes, noodles, rice, and more.

PINK PITAYA POWDER

Pink pitaya, also called the Dragon fruit, is a delicious fruit very high in fiber and rich in antioxidants. It has a deep pink flesh and a sweet tropical taste.

The powder is specially freeze-dried to preserve flavor and nutrients, it tastes great, and only one teaspoon will give you a gorgeous, bright pink color.

BASE MIXTURE

Soak 50 gr rolled oats and 10 g chia seeds in 100 ml almond milk overnight.
In the morning, put overnight oats into the blender. Add frozen bananas and a couple of tablespoons of almond milk (not more than 50 ml). Blend until smooth and creamy.

1ST LAYER

2ND LAYER

Take another 1/3 of the base mixture and add 1/2 teaspoon of blue spirulina and 1/4 teaspoon of pink pitaya powder to get the lighter shade than for the previous layer. Mix briefly and pour it on top of the first layer.

3RD LAYER

Take the last 1/3 of the base mixture and add 1/4 teaspoon of blue spirulina powder and 1/8 teaspoon of pink pitaya powder. Mix briefly and pour it on top of the second layer.
