Peel the apple and grate into a bowl. Mash the banana, then squeeze the orange juice into the same bowl. Add the honey, dates, raisins, cinnamon powder, coconut flakes, yoghurt and milk. Stir to mix thoroughly.
Add the oats. Give it one final stir to mix properly. Place in refrigerator for at least 2 hours or overnight to soften oats.
For the Strawberry Topping
If using strawberry toppings as in the recipe, then do this part just before serving.
Divide the strawberries into 2 groups. Blend one half of the strawberries with a powerful blender into a smooth puree. Then roughly chop into small pieces the other half of the strawberries.
Mix the strawberry puree into the oats, and toss the chopped strawberries into the oats just before serving.
