Lunchbox idea: Breakfast in a Cup

Found these plastic cups at our local supply shop, they are perfect for breakfast in a cup, big enough to pack a substantial portion to fill a hungry tummy but compact enough to fit easily into lunch coolers. Never thought a plastic cup could inspire so many different lunchbox ideas. They come with lids, which seal the cups to prevent any leakages. Available in packs of ten to fit most household budgets. Create layers in bold, vibrant colours which will add interest to any lunchbox. Experiment with a variety of tastes and flavours. I love being able to see the contents which are usually hidden inside regular plastic containers. Let your imagination run wild...... In a a cup... in a cup?

Whats inside this cup?

Layered Breakfast in a Cup 

  • Sugar free muesli
  • Plain organic yoghurt
  • Fruit salad 
  1. Make your favourite fruit salad, this one is made from chopped papino's, mangoes, granadilla's and banana.
  2. Place a layer of sugar free muesli in the base of the plastic cup, I used a boxed brand but you could make your own.
  3. Add a layer of plain organic yoghurt.
  4. Seal the cup.
Experiment with different colours and fruits for interesting effects.
