Easy Bircher done 3 ways
by Sandro Demaio
Whole oats are a great source of fibre, protein and sustained energy - and fresh fruit provides flavour without having to add sugar.
Preparation time: 10 minutes plus, chilling time
1 cup (90 g) whole rolled oats
1⁄2 cup (125 ml) milk (whole or almond milk are both great)
1⁄2 cup (140 g) Greek or plain yoghurt
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl, then cover and chill overnight. Stir through or top with any of these flavour combinations:
1–2 grated red or green apples, 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cinnamon and a handful of raisins
2–3 grated peaches and a touch of finely grated lemon zest
2–3 grated pears, a handful of pomegranate seeds and a small handful of linseeds
