I think its only right that my first What I'm Eating post be focused on the most important meal of the day which is obviously (as our grannies are always telling us) Breakfast. I don't know about you but I love muesli, most people when I tell them that say "urrhh its rabbit food!" but I really love it and I buy the sugar free stuff so its not even the sugar that has me hooked. However, I have been eating a mixture of muesli and bran-flakes for about 3 years now and I was really bored so I though right what can I do to spice things up a bit.
I came up with a lovely little mixture of some fresh fruit, muesli, natural yogurt and honey.
1/2 cup nonfat or low-fat plain yogurt
1/2 cup blueberries
1/4 cup diced apple
1/4 cup diced banana
1/4 cup unsweetened muesli
1-2 teaspoons honey
Method: Stir together yogurt, blueberries, apple, banana, muesli and honey to taste in a bowl.
You may also notice something else tasty in my picture, whats thats you ask? Why its a Berry Banana Crunch Smoothie this recipe is actually from Jason Vale the Juice Master. I found this and a couple of other recipes he shared on Elle.
Golden Delicious Apples x 2
Blueberries, Blackberries, Raspberries, Strawberries x 2 handfuls in total (fresh or frozen)
Natural Yogurt x 2 tablespoons
Banana x ½
Mixed Seeds x 1 tablespoon
Ice Cubes x 1 handful
Method: Juice the apples and pour into the blender. Add all the berries, natural yogurt, banana, seeds and ice and blend for a just a few seconds. If you use frozen berries there is no need to add extra ice to the blender.
I really like that one of the ingredients were mixed seeds as I have always wished ~I had a way to squeeze them into my diet, I bought a packet out of Lidl for like 60p so they are super cheap (as is everything in Lidl -my favourite shop, it just smells so good).
I made a video of my smoothie being made just for fun, take a quick look.
