Coconut Cherry Muesli

by Heidi @ Food Doodles on May 24, 2011

I’ve been on a real muesli kick lately.  I never liked it before, it could never compare to granola.  The texture of the oats was gross, the dry fruit mixed in never appealed to me and mixed with milk it wasn’t too tasty.  I’ve recently discovered that mixing muesli with plain yogurt and a dash of vanilla and maple syrup is super tasty.  And then just the other day I tried topping a smoothie with muesli.  I love it now.  I really can’t get enough.

So you can mix this recipe with milk, or yogurt, but my favorite way now is to make half of my favorite smoothie(in this case, a tropical mango smoothie – recipe to come in a couple days) and add 1/4-1/3 cup of this muesli mix to it and enjoy.  Of course you can always top it with other things as well, like a spoonful of jam or in this case homemade fruit sauce(just cooked fruit with a little cornstarch to thicken it and maybe a little sugar :))

This looks great! Love the coconut and cherry flavors.
Muesli has always confused me. Like…I feel it’s got an identity crisis. Does it want to be granola or oats?! That said, I’ve never had it just because it’s so expensive for something I have no idea whether I’d like or not; but I don’t know why I haven’t made my own! I’m on it!

I always thought so too! Such weird stuff. I was always confused, like do I really eat it raw? Or should I cook it? And yes, it’s really expensive. Might as well make yourself a small batch to make sure you like it. Or you can cook it if you don’t like it and have some leftover, although the nuts turn out a little strange. I’d be excited to see what flavor combo’s you’d come up with if you do give it a try 😀
