Basic Muesli - Dairy-Free

We generally eat oatmeal for breakfast, but some hot mornings call for another option. Muesli has been our favorite "other option" this summer. I have made it several different ways, but here is the general recipe.

ingredients
1 cup old fashioned or freshly rolled oats
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3/4 cup liquid - coconut milk, almond milk, fruit juice, fruit puree...or any combination. 
*Simply increase the amounts to make more. I often make a large bowl when we have friends and family visiting.


directions
1.  Mix ingredients together in a bowl and chill in the refrigerator overnight.
2.  Serving Suggestions: Stir in ground flaxseed; top with fresh fruit, coconut or nuts; a drizzle of honey or maple syrup

I have made this many ways and enjoyed them all. Be creative and enjoy!
Variations: Puree one banana in 3/4 cup orange juice and serve with Enjoy Life chocolate chips, Puree fresh rubarb and strawberries with 1/2 cup coconut milk topped with coconut, or puree 2 bananas with 1/2 cup almond milk and top with pecans or walnuts.
