Nutty Oat Crumbles with Kinohimitsu Berry Mascarpone Cream

Ever wonder if there is a beauty product that you can enjoy as breakfast or even dessert? Something that you actually look forward having every day which not only helps beautify, it serves as a delicious treat. The idea of "consuming" a beauty product came about when I was introduced the "Total Glow Set" from Kinohimitsu. I had a taste of the delicious berry flavoured of Prowhite and UV Bright which inspired me to create something with them. Of course nothing wrong with having them straight, but why not make it even better?

"Total Glow Set" has 3 different beauty enhancing products; Prowhite, Be White and UV Bright, packed with all natural ingredients which not only helps brighten your complexion, it even boost the immune system to promote healthy liver for flawless and glowing skin. How great is that?

So I took the challenge of incorporating the Kinohimitsu's Prowhite into a simple daily bake; Nutty Oat Crumbles. A nutty and chewy concoction which can pair off perfectly with the berry flavours from Prowhite which I mixed with some mascarpone cheese. This crumble is such an easy and healthy treat which anyone can remake at home, for breakfast or just to snack on. Not only does it provide all the beauty goodness, but it is delicious and versatile that it can be incorporated into my daily meals.

So why this "Total Glow Set" from Kinohimitsu? Well, living in a tropical country like Singapore where we get strong sun rays almost 80% of the year, can be a rather challenging for fair skinned people like me. I would be lying if I say I am not concern about that unflattering "tan" or the appearing of new freckle spots. Often times busy moms like me just can't find that extra ounce of energy to deliberately avoid that afternoon strong rays since we run our errands regardless of the rain or sun. 

So when I come to know about "Total Glow Set" from Kinohimitsu recently, I was intrigued!

Kinohimitsu Total Glow Set helps protect and brighten skin from head to toe, it promises a radiant and brighter skin in just 14 days! It also provides our skin with protection against harmful UV rays, where our skin is well replenished with vitamins and anti-oxidants, giving you a fairer and smoother skin. And I knew I just need to follow the following simple steps to get the best results:

Step 1 : Morning dose of a bottle of UV Bright, before heading outdoor. UV Bright claims to provide up to 9hours of UV protection. [SHIELD]

Besides having Kinohimitsu UV Bright straight from the bottle, I also enjoy having it in my breakfast too. Here is how I did it:

For that breakfast Chia seed pudding, all you need is:
2 tbsp organic chia seeds
150 g low fat Greek yogurt
100 ml fresh non fat or low fat milk
1 bottle of Kinohimitsu UV Bright
Fresh fruits like berries
  • In a glass jar, mix chia seeds, milk and yogurt together. Stir well so that the chia seeds does not cling together into lumps. Let sit 5 minutes and stir again. Repeat for 3 times and finally after 3rd stir,  cover and place glass jar in fridge overnight.
  • In the morning, give the chia seed pudding a good stir. You will notice it is rather thick. At this point, add your bottle of Kinohimitsu UV Bright in and stir well. 
  • Top with some oat crumbles (optional) and fresh berries. Serve cold, enjoy!

Step 2 : Taking 1-2 capsules of Be White after lunch to help with skin brightening [HEAL]

Step 3 : After a light dinner, treat yourself to this delectable Nutty Oat Crumble with Kinohimitsu Prowhite Berry Mascarpone Cream, which helps lighten and eliminate spots at the same time.[PROTECT]

I am sure many women out there are just like me, facing the inevitable "faith" of increasing facial lines and unflattering darkening spots. So being able to find a beauty regimen set like Kinohimitsu Total Glow Set to lighten up (literally!) the problem, I am more then willing to give it a shot! Considering we are not getting any younger each day, so a renowned and trusted product would be our best shot!

As I mentioned before, you can replace the mascarpone cream with greek yogurt to achieve similar result but healthier. Replace the butter with organic coconut oil too if you like. Note that you can make mix the Pro White powder to the yogurt right before serving, no problem.
