Ragini’s Bircher Muesli

This Bircher Muesli originated in Europe and is both filling and light at the same time. It leaves endless spaces for variation and is always a delightful addition to any healthy food diet.

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup millet hulls
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • ½ cup nut mix including: brazil nuts, raisins, sunflower seeds, pepitas and almonds
  • 4-5 dried apricots
  • 1 apple
  • 1 pear
  • 1 avocado
  • For sweetening if needed use 1 teaspoon of honey

Machine set up:

  • First place the Living JuicerMincing Strainer into the drum and onto the screw. Attach the drum cap onto the end of the drum by turning it counter clockwise until you feel it sits firmly. Then screw the Mincing Nozzle onto the drum cap turning it counter clockwise onto notch 2.
  • Place a big bowl under the Pulp Discharge Outlet in order to catch the paste.

  • eat

Preparation time:

  • 8 min
  • Yields: 2 serves

Preparation hints:

After making the fruit mash, you don’t have to clean the machine before making the nutty paste. After making the nutty paste, I do the following: open the machine step by step, first the nozzle then pull out the strainer. By doing this I catch the left over juice into my bowl which is great for soaking the muesli. Bircher muesli can be soaked over night to really give this dish the impression of fresh nuts and grains as well as making the unique tastes really come out.
