(banded portions will be smaller, as the band does feel tighter in the morning)

Ingredients (serves 6)

  • 3 cups rolled oats (see note)
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened apple juice
  • 1 granny smith apple, coarsely grated
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds, toasted
  • 2 small limes, juiced
  • 1 cup thick, plain yogurt (Use low fat yogurt)
  • 1 cup mixed fresh berries (we used blackberries, strawberries, raspberries)
  • NO need for the extra calories of honey, so I removed this from the drizzle on top

 

Method

Place oats in a large bowl. Pour over apple juice to cover. Stir to combine. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

  1. Just before serving, stir in apple, almonds, 1/4 cup lime juice, 3/4 cup yoghurt and 3/4 cup mixed berries.
  2. Spoon muesli into bowls. Top with remaining yoghurt and mixed berries. Serve immediately.

Notes

This recipe is best made 1 day in advance.

Use regular (not quick-cooking) rolled oats for this recipe.

Tip: You could replace the yoghurt in step 3 with milk.
