The almonds and sesame seeds make this tasty Muesli calcium rich. Add 1 cup of chopped oranges to increase the calcium even more. Muesli is a Swiss breakfast cereal that is a mixture of grains, nuts, and dried fruits. Traditionally, it is soaked overnight in fruit juice, then served with fresh fruit. It may also be served with hot or cold non-dairy milk.
· 2 cups rolled oats
· ¼ cup sesame seeds
· 1/4 cup chopped almonds
· 1/2 cup chopped dried fruit (apples, figs, apricots, etc.)
· 1/2 cup raisins or chopped dates
· 1 cup non-dairy milk, fruit juice, or applesauce
· 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries (or try a combination of frozen berries for variety)
Combine oats, sesame seeds, almonds, dried fruit, and raisins. Leave whole or grind in a food processor for a finer cereal. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
To serve, mix 1 cup of muesli with non-dairy milk, fruit juice, or applesauce. Stir in 2/3 cup fresh or frozen blueberries and let stand several minutes before serving.
