Bircher Muesli: the healthy version

I’ve been making this bircher muesli for a few years now and still love it.  In fact, anyone who tries it becomes instantly hooked.  As it’s made the night before with a lot less yoghurt than its traditional friend, its a super-quick & healthy breakfast.  If you're rushing to work, take it with you for a guilt-free desk-breakfast.  And because it contains strawberries & blueberries, its high in anti-oxidants.  Anti-wrinkle & cancer fighting. Yeah!


1/2 cup natural (untoasted) muesli (172 cals)
1 large apple, grated (106 cals)
1/2 tub low fat, fruit yoghurt (83 cals)
3 strawberries, diced (21 cals)
1/2 cup blueberries (39 cals)
1/4 cup unsweetened apple juice (27 cals)
2 dates, chopped (52 cals)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (negligible)
TOTAL cals (500)   
 Serves 2.

Combine all ingredients in a bowl.  It should be quite wet.  Cover with cling film overnight in the fridge.  Serve in a bowl the next morning. Dead easy!

TIPS: when berries aren’t in season experiment with other seasonal fruit, like cherries, nectarines, or mango in summer; pears in winter.  Anyone not watching their weight  can drizzle honey over the top to make it extra-special & add some extra fruit.  Enjoy!!
