A Taste of Home

You are probably familiar with those extremely lazy Sundays after a night out, the greater part entailing lounging around in bed with a constantly grumbling stomach and a craving for greasy food, but absolutely zero motivation or energy to do something about it? That probably describes most of your Sundays doesn’t it ;-)?

The most recent of such Sundays came with a rather interesting craving, but one that had to be fulfilled. After having gone through some emotionally draining turmoil (why can’t we be 5 years old again and play all day long?) in the past few weeks, my partner in crime and I longed for a soothing taste of home. Making proper butter croissants from scratch would have been excessive (although totally worth it if you ever have, let’s say, 6 hours to spare), so we opted for a low effort (and low-fat) version to satisfy our needs!

250g yoghurt of your choice (we used forest fruits)

2.5 tsp clear honey
1 tbsp caster sugar

1 banana, chopped into small pieces
1 apple
a generous handful of strawberries, quartered

a handful of hazelnuts, chopped in half (or walnuts, or pecan nuts, whatever you like..)
cinnamon

  1. Mix yoghurt, oats, raisins, lemon juice and sugar in a bowl.
  2. Grate your apple, with the peel, and add to the yoghurt mixture.
  3. Now stir in the banana, strawberries, nuts and blueberries. Sprinkle over some cinnamon to taste.
  4. Divide between two bowls. Drizzle the honey over you müesli et voila: quick, simple, filling and delicious.
