Muesli (pronounced Mus-lee) is starting to become a popular breakfast item. I’m sure you have heard or seen the word frequently but never really knew what it was or meant. That’s how it was with me but turns out, I’ve actually been eating something similar for months. I love muesli because it is such a simple and healthy dish that you can eat at anytime of the day.

Muesli is a combination of nuts, seeds, fruit (fresh or dried), and some kind of milk whether it be cow’s milk, nut milk, or coconut milk. I have seen a variety of healthy muesli recipes which call for so many different kinds of ingredients. You can make your muesli as crazy as you want or you can keep it simple with a few, tasty ingredients. This recipe is loaded with good-for-you fats, fiber, vitamins, and healthy carbohydrates. Not to mention, it is completely gluten free, vegetarian and if you use a nut milk it is also vegan friendly. This amazing recipe will have you feel strong, healthy and energized!

For this recipe you will need:

2 cup vanilla almond milk
1/2 cup coconut Kefir
1/2 cup rolled oats, soaked overnight
1 Tbsp chia seeds

Optional toppings:
1/4 cup walnuts
1/4 cup slivered almonds
2 Tbsp dried cranberries
2 Tbsp pumpkin seed
1/4 cup blueberries
1/4 cup golden raspberries
1/4 cup granola

First, I would recommend soaking the rolled oats overnight in 1 cup of the vanilla almond milk. Then, combine the soaked oats, remaining 1 cup almond milk, coconut kefir, and chia seeds in a blender. Blend until smooth and pour into a bowl. Top your “smoothie” with any toppings you would like. Feel free to make a large batch and portion into separate mason jars to have as an easy grab-and-go breakfast or snack. Enjoy!
