Gizzi's teamed up with dairy company Arla to encourage people to shake up their breakfast routines. We love her new recipes, which include this one for Lacto-fermented Sunny Bircher Muesli with Yogurt and Blueberries. Doesn't it look tasty?

Ingredients

  • For the Bircher muesli
  • 100g oats
  • 2 tbsp. mixed dried tropical fruit, you can buy this from the supermarket, it has dried pineapple, mango and banana), roughly chopped.
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp flax seeds
  • Handful of brazil nuts roughly chopped
  • 350ml Cravendale milk
  • 250ml good quality apple juice
  • 1 grated apple
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • a dash of all-natural vanilla extract
  • To serve, per two portions
  • 4-6 tablespoons of Bircher muesli
  • 2-3 tablespoons thick yogurt
  • A couple more slurps of milk
  • 6 tbsp of blueberries (we've also used raspberries and chopped strawberries in our picture.)

Method

1 Mix all of the ingredients for the Bircher muesli together in a bowl and mix well. It will be too wet at this stage but the soaking process drinks up all that liquid and flavor.

2 Now make sure its covered with cling or popped in a sealable container and place overnight in the fridge. This stores for 4-5 days.

3 When you're ready to eat, split the muesli between two breakfast bowls, top with skyr (or any of your fave) yogurt, a slurp of milk and then the fruit and serve straight away.

Gizzi's tip: We've all heard of packed lunches, so what's wrong with a packed breakfast? If you struggle to find time for breakfast before you leave for work, as many of us often do, buy up a load of food containers and use them to keep your brekkies fresh for when you get to the office. All of my weekday breakfast recipes are designed to take on-the-go and can be enjoyed wherever.
