Start the Day Right with Müesli

January 12th, 2012

This only takes about 3 minutes to put together. Obviously, feel free to use any fruit you have on hand (preferably in season, of course).  Chopped nuts also make a nice addition.

Makes 1 serving

1/2 cup dry müesli
3/4 cup low-fat kefir
1/2 white peach, sliced
1/2 cup blueberries
1 strawberry, sliced

Combine everything in a bowl. Let it sit for about 10 minutes to soften before eating.

If you don’t know much about kefir, here’s the quick description:  It’s like drinkable yogurt.  It’s perfect to add to the müesli, since the oats are uncooked and tend to absorb a lot of moisture.  If you use regular yogurt, simply thin it with milk until you reach the desired consistency.
