      Some study claimed that eating blueberries in yoghurt stops your body being able to make use of the antioxidants in the blueberries. Not sure if this applies to other berries.
      And unfortunately I cannot remember the source

      As to cinnamon, I have settled for cinnamonum burmanii, which is cheap but also has low coumarin levels (according to wikipedia). Perhaps Dr Furhman did not know about the third type of cinnamon when he wrote that…

      And I would love to eat organic berries, but they are VERY hard to find here… (as well as double the price when you do find them).

    We have a similar breakfast every morning, but include 1 tablespoon of lightly toasted desiccated coconut. Our yoghurt is made as follows: 4 litres of full fat homogenized A2 milk. Heat to 90oC; cool to 40oC, add a speck of dried yoghurt culture (Lactobacillus delbrueckii ssp. bulgricus and Streptococcus thermophilus ) and a speck of probiotic culture (L. rhamnosus and L. plantarum) (cultures from , mix, pour into recycled 1 L yoghurt tubs. Place tubs in incubator (made from a polystyrene foam box into which is placed an old electric frypan with a wire rack in the pan). set to 40oC. We leave the tubs there for 22 hours to get a firm, creamy, high lactic acid yoghurt. Perfect!

    I have a box of local wild blueberries in my freezer and add an handful to unsweetened full-fat yoghurt. The frozen berries makes it closer to a frozen yoghurt.. especially if you “smush” them in and mix well :-)

    My home-made yoghurt recipe for Thermomix:

    – Heat 1200g full-cream milk @ 90C, speed 3, for 30minutes
    – Cool to 37C but not below
    – Add 3 tablespoons of the previous batch of yoghurt
    – Mix at 37C, speed 3, for 10 minutes
    – Pour into containers, place them in an insulated box or warm spot for 18-24hours
    – Refrigerate
