Time For Delicious Fruits

Masha loves fruits –any kind of fruits. In her muesli, in a fruit shake, with some yogurt or with homemade vanilla ice-cream.

So here is her favourite recipe for a warm and sunny summerday: quark with strawberries and mango.

Because this delicacy tastes so good we recommend to share a dish with a friend.

Ingredients for two:

200g strawberries

200g mango

1 spoon lemon juice

250g quark

150g vanilla yogurt

 

Preparation:

Wash the strawberries, peel the mango and cut both fruits into small pieces. Mix the yogurt and the quark and add in some lemon juice. Layer the quark and fruits alternating and enjoy!

 

You can also try this quark for breakfast with some muesli. Masha advises the berry muesli RED PASSION.

Give them a try: Crunchy honey granola and 8 friends – our new muesli bases

We spend a lot of time searching and trying new ingredients for our mymuesli mixer. When we got the taste of crunchy honey granola and 8 friends we all had the same judgement: these two bases should be in our mixer and on your breakfast table!

You like your muesli with an edge? Then you must try the granola base with oat flakes baked in honey. While baking, the flakes get a golden glaze and honey gives them a delicate sweetness.

Our graphic designer Lena loves the combination of granola with some seeds and crunchy coconut flakes. For the perfect mix she adds sweet cranberries, tart raspberries and cherries.

 

 

For those who like it more natural and rustic we recommend 8 friends – our second new base. Besides oat flakes and tried and true PurPur wheat you can find the retro grains Emmer and Kamut, classic rye, barley, wheat, and spelt flakes. Mixed with sourly fruits, nuts and seeds this base is perfect for every grain fan. Arne sweetens the 8 friends with dates, apple pieces and strawberries. To get still more bite he adds almonds, oat crunchy and some cornflakes.

By the way: You can add as much ingerdients as you want – until the tube is filled. I am curious what makes its way in your mix. Please give us a hint and write your favourite mix in the comments.

Summertime is great!

“Summertime is great, it´s the best time of the year“ – “Oh, why´s that so?“ – “Because I can eat ice cream every day!“ That´s what my little brother told me, when I asked him how he likes summer.

And I think he is right. Summer means eating a lot of ice cream – propably every day at every time. But it also means wearing nice dresses, driving to nice lakes and chilling with you friends, going out to the most insane festivals and so much more.

 

 

So for me the summer is the best time of the year not only because of ice cream. I love the warmer days and the fun-filled nights. I love that people are getting more and more friendly and the dreary of the winter is forgotten. I love all these boutiques with their cute little things, which I would like to buy them all. I love sitting around a campfire with friends, doing some BBQ and talking about everything and nothing. I love jumping into a lake in the middle of nowhere in my brand new bikini and listening to some music while warming up because the water was a little bit colder than you thought. And meanwhile for a little snack the mymuesli2gos are really perfect. For a picknick, at a festival, at camping or just for a lovely summer breakfast.

 

There are so many things I love about the summer – with no end in sight. So tell me what you love about the summer ✹

DIY – muesli bar with berries

I love DIY and all the cute, sweet und funny things you can do with your own two hands. But not only the handcrafts are lovely, my grandmother’s self-made jams are also fantastic. To see how some ingredients „melt“ together to a delicious meal is a great thing. Especially if it tastes as good as the cereal bars we made today.

For me it was important to make things as easy as possible. Because – to be honest – I can be a bit clumsy in baking. But I found a recipe which inspired not only me but the whole team.

 

Ingredients for the berry bar

400g berry muesli

120g flour

120g apple sauce

120g agave nectar

100g honey

You just have to mix flour with muesli and add apple sauce, agave nectar and honey. Give the mixture on a baking tray and push it in the oven (170°C) for about 20 minutes. Cut it in pieces und enjoy!

What’s your favourite milk? Comparing dairy alternatives…

I just went to the organic food store and packed my shopping basket full of plant-based drinks. Every once in a while, muesli lovers with different intolerances or those who simply love variety ask us for tips and suggestions. So I bought four plant-based dairy alternatives:

Pouring the hazelnut milk into my glass, I immediately thought of hazelnut-nougat spread. This milk virtually asks for chocolate muesli and tastes heavenly in combination with it! By itself, the milk has a sweet nutty flavour.

 

As for the almond milk, I chose the unsweetened version. As could be expected, it is not especially sweet and has a rather subtle almond flavour (I would have expected it to be stronger). Almond milk contains only half the amount of calories of unskimmed cow’s milk and is free of cholesterol.

 

People with gluten-intolerance should better keep their hands off oat milk. It tasted quite sweet, even though no sweeteners are added. I like it best in combination with honey and nut muesli or for making a delicious matcha latte.

 

Speaking of rice-coconut milk makes me swoon! It tastes amazingly refreshing and the coconut flavour is not too dominant. I tasted the milk and suddenly lots of summery cocktail and smoothie recipes came to mind. It tastes great in combination with fruit mueslis, for example our mango muesli. The drink is low in calories—only 20 kcal per 100 ml—which makes it a really light alternative to skimmed milk (which has about 64 kcal per 100 ml). Of course there are many, many more dairy alternatives. Maybe you have another great tip for us. We are looking forward to your comments!

Cooking with Hello Fresh

Last month you may remember that Hello Fresh distributed our mymuesli2go in its boxes. For those of you who don’t know Hello Fresh: its a wonderful company that delivers delicious recipes with the exact ingredients you need every week.

 

Its one of those services that helps you eat well without investing the time and energy into planning your meals, going shopping and transporting a load of groceries. Just like mymuesli allows you to experiment with different muesli combinations without storing supplies of over 80 ingredients in your home…

 

At the mymuesli office we have the luxury of a beautiful kitchen where we regularly cook and prepare meals together. As we are all into healthy eating and loved the look of the Hello Fresh boxes, we decided to order some to the office and give it a try!

The recipes were wonderfully explained and the ingredients truly delicious: fresh, great quality, and just in the amounts that we needed them! Our favourite was the salmon and veggie dish, pictured above, in the classic box. You can swap the meals you want in a given week and there’s the option of a purely vegetarian box for the vegetarians among you. Being among such wonderful ingredients was truly an honour for mymuesli.

 

Have you tried it yet?

Amour, love, Liebe: Valentine’s gifts

The new and exclusive I-Love-You muesli is our very first seasonal muesli with a dedicated seasonal tube at mymuesli in the UK! For a very special day and a very special person… the special Valentine’s muesli. Perfect for a romantic, delicious and luxurious lovers’ breakfast and as a particularly creative and tasteful gift.

 

The most unique ingredient of this muesli is the novel inclusion of organic rose petals. Adding a soft flavour to your muesli, roses as the ultimate symbol of love are a must on Valentine’s Day and provide a unique element to your breakfast.

 

Combine the symbolism of flowers with sweet and tasty wholemilk chocolate hearts, crunchy honeyed oats, seductive white-chocolate cranberries as well as tart freeze-dried berries – and you have the perfect romantic Valentine’s breakfast, as well as perhaps a reminder of that special day in the mornings thereafter.

 

 

You would like to add a personal note to your muesli? The lid has a special insert in which you can inscribe a personal message in a beautiful heart-shaped card design.

 

If you are looking for the somewhat larger and more lasting present, we recommend the Valentine’s gift box, complete with I-Love-You muesli, the mymuesli bowl and the ergonomic mymuesli spoon. Not to big and not too small – just right.

White Winter Crisps

 

This delicious recipe for crunchy wintery cookie-crisps is both incredibly easy and perfectly suited for producing in bulk.

Ingredients you will need for about 15 pieces:

 

200 g white chocolate

300 g Berry muesli

aluminium foil

 

Break the chocolate down into pieces and melt them in a hot water bath. Mix the muesli into the white chocolate.

 

After stirring the mixture well, place little clusters of the mix on a tray lined with aluminium foil. Place the tray in the fridge to allow the clusters to solidfy.

 

Once solid, you can present and eat as you would cookies. But beware - they have addictive qualities. Probably worth producing in greater number then…
