Fruity cold Birchers Muesli Fit for a King

I bring to you today a very easy, fast, healthy, and delicious breakfast recipe.
It combines quick oats which are high in heart protective soluble fiber, with antioxidant rich blueberries, pectin rich apples, and probiotic rich yoghurt. This recipe is high in carbohydrates, protein, and with addition of fiber from the fruits, will provide a slow sustained release of energy.

I personally do not like to  add any additional sweetener as I find that there is enough sweetness in the vanilla yoghurt, as well as in the various fruits.
Hemp hearts are high in essential fatty acids important for healthy functioning of the heart.  They have 2:1 ratio of omega – 6 fatty acid to omega 3 fatty acids. They are also high in the amino acid Arginine,which is responsible for the function and maintainence of healthy blood vessels.

Ingredients
1 cup plain quick oats
1 cup plain  homemade yoghurt or store bought
1/2 cup vanilla yoghurt or Greek yoghurt
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1 banana finely sliced
1 finely sliced apple ( use with the peel  if organic )
Maple syrup ( optional) as extra sweetener
2 tbsp. Hemp hearts

Method
1) Crush the frozen blueberries with the back of the spoon so that the blue juice oozes out.
2) Now mix all the ingredients (except for the Hemp Hearts) thoroughly.
3) Top the mixture off with Hemp hearts and you now have a delicious, finger licking colourful muesli fit for a king or a queen (and even little princes or princesses !!!)

Enjoy!!!

    • These are shelled hemp seeds . They taste like pine nuts or sunflower seeds. They are considered a superfood as they have virtually the highest concentrated balance of proteins , fats , vitamins and enzymes. They are available in most health food stores.

      • and are the oats cooked before you add them? if not, won’t they be too tough and dry to eat?

      • No these are quick oats so they are more processed than the rolled oats so when you put them in yoghurt they soften up pretty quickly and they are not sticky. If you like you can soak them in hot water for 5 minutes and cover and once it is cooled, add yoghurt . The oats are little bit sticky though.
