At the base of Beaver Creek Lodge's Lift Number One is a cafeteria where you can ski in and re-energize with that ever so alpine dish: muesli. Skier's grab a soup bowl, ladle in a healthy portion of the milky oat concoction and top with a mountain of fresh and dried fruit.
Since reading up on digestion and nutrient absorption, I've made a habit of soaking oats for up to 24 hours before cooking with them. This recipe for a creamy muesli accomplishes just that; no cooking even required. The recipe makes one generous portion with basic ingredients from the SimplyCooking® Pantry.
2/3 cup whole, almond or coconut milk
1/2 cup oats
1 cup plain yogurt
3 Tbsp. honey
1/2 lemon, juiced
Make 7 - 24 hours before eating. Warm the milk and place in a bowl with the oats. Let this stand for 5 minutes then stir in the yogurt, honey and lemon juice. Cover and refrigerate. Serve plain; adding fruit is optional.
Sprinkle a layer of frozen berries on the bottom of individual serving dishes. Ladle the muesli over the top. Cover each dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate over night.
Fresh or Dried Fruit
Just before serving, stir in any fresh or dried fruit.
