Supercharged Bircher

When it comes to breakkie, we like minimal effort, maximum flavour and spoonfuls of goodness. In our humble opinion, there is no better way to tick all of these boxes than Bircher muesli. You can make a batch that sees you through from Monday to Friday (yummier each day), it’s super easy to make (5 mins tops), it’s a whole lot cheaper and better for you (and your waistline) than buying breakkie out, and you can mix it up with a different topping each day. An all round winning breakkie!

The recipe below serves up 5 average-sized portions of Bircher for 2 exceptional individuals:


Unstabilised oats (400-500g)
Dehydrated coconut (2 tbsp)
Ground cinnamon (2 tbsp)
Dried goji berries (2 tbsp)
Dried fruit of your choice – dates, raisins, cranberries or apple (1  handful)
Lemon (1 whole)
Apple juice (200ml)
Water (100-200ml)


Chuck all dry ingredients in a tupperware
Squeeze in the lemon juice, every last drop!
Slowly mix in the juice and water, stirring thoroughly
Leave to stand for 2-3 hours
Place in the fridge overnight
Serve with fresh fruit and a dollop of yoghurt or 50ml of almond/rice milk*

*We recommend fresh figs, fresh berries, banana or mango
