- In a medium sized bowl, warm the honey and cinnamon in the microwave for about 20 seconds. It should be liquid, but not too hot. If it is very hot, allow it to cool slightly before adding the avocados, strawberries, and blueberries and gently tossing to coat the fruit.
- Using an 8-oz. jar, layer ⅓ cup of yogurt in a glass jar, add a couple of tablespoons of the fruit, top with another ⅓ cup of yogurt, followed by a bit more fruit, add another ⅓ cup of yogurt. Add a quarter of the avocado and top with a quarter of the walnuts. Repeat with three more jars.
Serving Suggestion: Sprinkle with cinnamon and a drizzle of honey before topping with chickpeas.
Beverage Pairing: Warm tea with honey.
Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
