Try a Fig & Apricot Bircher muesli with yogurt and a berry coulis. This Bircher muesli recipe,is the famous Dr Bircher's health muesli based on raw oats fruit & nuts and soaked in milk.
The Plum Foods brand Fig & Apricot Muesli already comes pre-mixed with organic oats some dried fruits and healthy pesticide free Australian Almonds, so you have Dr Birchers Muesli when you simply add milk. However, this recipe calls for some extra fresh fruit and a bigger dollop of protein rich yogurt.

  • Fresh Raspberries
  • Fresh Blackberries

  • Sliced fresh Apple
  • 60g of fresh fruit coulis
  • Milk to your taste

    Make a quick fresh fruit Coulis from raspberries, blackberries and blueberries. (Resist the inclination to add sugar. Sweeten it to taste by using a higher ratio of blueberries).
    Add most of your passionfruit pulp and half of your yogurt to a jar followed by the soaked muesli and your Coulis and the rest of your yogurt. Top it with whatever you have left of the fresh fruit and garnish with a slice of Apple. Make sure you wash the fresh berries.
