Swiss Muesli- easy and healthy breakfast
Simple, healthy, easy to make, tastes yummy and you can make so many variations, how many times can you say that about a recipe? This recipe definitely one such recipe.
When we say Muesli, I used to think of the boxed cereal you get in the supermarket. When I went to London for work I stayed at a hotel where there was a tiny spread of food for breakfast, and in that tiny spread there was a large white bowl filled with what seems like a tasteless gooey pudding. It did not look appetizing at all. My motto is try different foods, if you dont like it don’t eat it again, so I decided to try this pudding as well.
I must tell you that I have not been fooled by the looks of a dish ever as I did that day. I fell in love with this dish. It was fresh, healthy and so tasty.
I started reading about it and found out that this is also a type of Muesli, called ‘Bircher/Scandinavian/Swiss Muesli. Unlike its american cousin which is eaten out of the box with milk, this European baby is made with fresh fruit and yogurt.
I love the fact that it can be made ahead, in fact it tastes better when left overnight, which means you have a yummy breakfast that can be made the night before. Can you imagine not having to worry about breakfast as you are rushing to get out the door in the morning?
I also like that it is made with very healthy ingredients like oats, fresh fruits, nuts, milk & yogurt, it is a perfect combination of Carbs with a lot of fibre, protein from the dairy, vitamins from the fruit & healthy fats from the nuts.
It is amazing how many combinations you can make, which also allows me to incorporate all the seasonal, local produce.
1 1/2 cup rolled oats
1 cup low-fat Yogurt
1 cup milk ( take any kind you like)
2 apples grated
1/4 cup sliced almonds
1/4 cup golden resins
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 cup sliced almonds
Combine all the ingredients in a large glass or plastic container
Serve ideally the next morning, I feel that the flavors blend really well.
If it is too thick, add milk to get the desired consistency.
