Bircher Muesli

This is the muesli I grew up with in Switzerland.

Serves 6 – 8

1 cups old fashioned oats
½ cups milk
1 medium bananas, mashed
juice of one lemon
¼ cup fresh orange juice
¼ cup real maple syrup
1 medium banana, diced
2 apples, peeled, cored and grated
1 oranges peeled and sectioned
1 pears, peeled and diced   
1 cups fresh or frozen raspberries
1 cups fresh strawberries, sliced
1 kiwi, peeled and diced
½ cups chopped, toasted walnuts or pecans
¼ cup heavy cream, optional but it really makes it taste wonderful. Low fat yogurt works as well.

In a large bowl pour milk over oats. Stir and let stand 5 min. until oats absorb almost all the milk. Add mashed bananas, lemon juice, orange juice, maple syrup. Mix well.
Add all the chopped and diced fruits and nuts.
Gently fold in heavy cream or yogurt.
Should be served at once. Muesli doesn’t sit well. It becomes water and mushy.
