The word muesli is a Swiss-German variation of the German word “müs” meaning porridge. The “invention” of muesli is credited to a Swiss physician and nutritional pioneer, Maximilian Bircher-Benner. He developed this recipe for his patients as Bircher Museli is rich in dietary fibre, calcium healthy fats and a lot more. It is now eaten as a standard breakfast dish, and also in Switzerland as supper. Made with oats, fruits, yogurt and dry fruits that have been steeped overnight. It’s the perfect breakfast solution.
This is my take on the original Bircher Muesli. I am not too big on having healthy veggie juices in the morning so I decided to incorporate beetroot juice that I don’t like as much, into my breakfast.
It is such an easy and versatile dish to make and you can enjoy it anytime during the course of the day. Do check out the recipe give it a go and share your experience with us.
