Make Ahead Breakfast Muesli

We like eating at our house. Delicious food and pleasant mealtimes are events to look forward to.  My friends and family know I love me a good breakfast.  Even more so, I love me a good breakfast that allows me to linger in bed just a couple minutes longer, but will still be ready when we are.

This is one of our family favourites this time of year. It’s easy, quick, loved by the littles and we hope you’ll give it a try!

Breakfast Muesli a la Sleeperific

3 cups quick-cooking rolled oats (not instant)
1 ½ cups plain yogurt*
1 cup orange juice
1/2 cup milk**
1-2 tbsp honey
1 apple, grated (you can peel it, we don’t)
4 cups of fresh berries of your choice; diced strawberries, blueberries, blackberries or raspberries

– In a large bowl, combine oats, yogurt, orange juice, milk, honey and grated apple.
– Gently fold in fresh fruit, cover and refrigerate overnight.
– Optional: serve with crunchy granola, nuts, dried fruit, seeds, etc…

* If you choose a sweetened yogurt, you can skip the honey.  We’ve tried dairy, goat, coconut and almond yogurt.  They’re all great!  The vegan yogurts tend to be thicker, so you may need to offset by adding more milk.
** We’ve tried dairy, goat, coconut and almond milk, and they’ve all worked out just fine!
