Recipe type: Breakfast
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Start it off the right way with a low-fat breakfast of muesli, fresh and dried fruit and a drop of honey for sweetness.
- 2½cups natural muesli
- 1½ cups apple juice
- 1 cup reduced-fat plain yoghurt
- ¾ cup reduced-fat milk
- ¾ cup chopped dried figs
- 2 tablespoons honey
- ¼ cup slivered almonds, toasted
- 3 fresh figs, quartered
- Combine muesli, apple juice, yoghurt, milk, dried figs and honey in a medium bowl. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
- Spoon muesli mixture into bowls. Sprinkle with nuts. Top with fresh figs. Serve.
Use a muesli with plenty of assorted grains, seeds, nuts and dried fruits. Note: Soaking muesli overnight softens grains and allows flavours to develop.
