Orange cardamom bircher muesli

Orange cardamom bircher muesli


  • 150 g rolled oats (2 cups)
  • 420 ml milk (1 3/4 cups)
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice or whey A great use for leftover whey if you make and strain your own yogurt.
  • 1 green apple, cored and grated I like granny smith or something similarly sharp, but any apple would work
  • 2 tbsp runny honey
  • 420 g plain yogurt (about 1 1/2 cups). Use plain yogurt, Greek will be too thick.
  • 1/2 tsp cardamom
  • Juice and zest of one orange
  • 1 handful dry roasted almonds
  • 1 handful raisins


  1. Combine all ingredients into a large bowl. Mix. I REALLY like the almonds (and raisins) when they have soaked overnight. The raisins get all plump and lovely, and the almonds are soft but still have a bit of bite. You might like it more adding them the morning you are eating. Up to you!

  2. Cover with plastic wrap or a plate and pop into the fridge overnight.

  3. Serve it up the next morning. You could add extra fruit on top, as well as chia seeds or anything else that sounds appealing. I've added chopped, salted pistachios and oooooo that is tasty.
