These make the perfect summer breakfast, you can eat them cold straight out of the fridge. Make them right before you go to bed, or you can make a few servings and keep them in the fridge for up to 5 days. Whichever you decide, make sure they’re in the fridge for about 5 hours before you eat them. I use these small mason jars that measure about 250ml/1 cup.

TIPS:
You can play around with different flavor combinations-
Grated apple instead of carrots for a take on apple pie.
Leave out the carrots, raisins and spices and top with fresh blueberries before serving.
Leave out the carrots, raisins and spices and add 1 Tbsp Cocoa Powder and 1 Tbsp Peanut Butter
