Bircher Muesli

Created by Dr. Max Bircher-Benner of Switzerland as a complete meal, Bircher Muesli (beer-ker mews-lee) is a delicious and wholesome fruit and oatmeal dish. Although it was not originally intended as a breakfast food, it is usually served as such today. It may, however, also be served as a dessert. The following recipe is for an apple muesli, which is the best for texture and flavour, but other fruit, such as pineapple, banana or berries, may be substituted if desired. If the muesli is being served as a dessert, the following recipe will make

2 servings.

2 tablespoons of milk juice of

1 lemon juice of
