IMG 0800 Muesli

Muesli is a traditional Swiss breakfast food. It was invented by a physician around the turn of the 20th century. It is truly a tasty treat, and one that I have enjoyed in all my travels to Switzerland. In fact, I love it so much that I even make it at home. It's a refreshing change from cooked oatmeal, plus the leftovers make an enjoyable afternoon snack. The flavor and texture of the fresh fruits, combined with the tangy richness of yogurt, and the addition of hearty oats, all make this breakfast a memorable treat.

Here is a delicious recipe for muesli from the Food and Health Communications test kitchen:



1 cup rolled oats (old fashioned or quick)

1 cup skim or soy milk

1 cup plain, nonfat Greek yogurt

1 chopped apple (remove core and stem but leave skin on)

1 cup sliced strawberries

1 cup assorted fresh berries (blueberries, raspberries, blackberries)

1 orange, peeled, seeded, and diced

Ground cinnamon, to taste

Garnish: chopped walnuts


  1. Combine the oats, milk, and yogurt in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Fold in the chopped fruits and cinnamon.
  3. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  4. To serve, place 1 cup of Muesli in a ramekin or serving bowl. Garnish with chopped walnuts.

Variations: Use a variety of your favorite dried and diced fruits. Try dates, cranberries, apricots, or even mangoes.
