Muesli: A Warm Weather Whey Protein Oatmeal Alternative

A warm, gooey bowl of oatmeal might not sound too appealing when hot, humid, sticky summer weather is still upon us. But you don’t have to miss out on your morning oatmeal just because it’s scorching out. Homemade muesli can be your new go-to summer breakfast! By making a homemade version you control the ingredients and can add whey protein isolate like BiPro to your concoction. Muesli is great for just about anybody because it typically is gluten free and has less sugar and fewer calories than most breakfast cereals.

Other health perks of muesli:

  • It can be made lactose free.
  • It’s high in fiber and whole grains, which regulate the digestive system and are filling, to keep you energized in the morning. Fibers and whole grains can also aid in weight management.
  • Muesli is a potent source of antioxidants.
  • The addition of nuts (especially walnuts) provides a great source of omega-3 fatty acids.

What I love about muesli is that it’s perfect for quick eating on the go. It can be made at night so when you are racing around in the morning and feel tempted to skip breakfast because it’s going to take MORE TIME, muesli is all ready and waiting in your fridge. Muesli can last up to four days if refrigerated in an airtight container.

How to Make Muesli

  1. Combine 2 cups of uncooked oats, 2 cups of almond milk OR skim milk, 1 ½ cups of sliced fresh fruit, 8 ounces of vanilla yogurt and 3 scoops of BiPro whey protein.
  2. Mix well.
  3. Separate into 6 glass jars, cover and refrigerate overnight.
  4. For added flavor, sprinkle with chopped nuts and cinnamon.
