Plum Bircher Muesli – Summer in a Bowl

Plum Bircher Muesli //

My heart is full today, bursting in fact. Bursting with love and happiness and all the good things that come with it. There is something so magical about spending a day, watching two people you love, make promises to love each other forever. I managed to hold back the tears, but watching my best childhood friend walk down the aisle to marry her guy was beautiful. I got the honour of walking down in front of her, in awe of how beautiful she looked. I also got to make their wedding cake, weeks of stressing was instantly forgotten as soon as I saw their faces light up when they saw it. It’s been a magical weekend and my heart is happy.

Packed lunches made, dinner on and breakfast oats soaking, I’m now cosy-ing up and settling down for a snuggly few hours on the sofa. We try to get our food for the next working day all sorted before dinner, so we can chill for a few hours. This weekend I need it. I love making bircher muesli the night before, letting all the goodness soak into the oats overnight. Then, come morning time, we can just grab them out the fridge and eat them, no breakfast faffing. Just tasty, simple, quick breakfasts for us. I love Dorset Cereals bircher muesli. There’s no nasties, just natural ingredients. Their new flavours (raspberry and blackcurrant / almond and honey) are perfect summer flavours and right up my street! Show them some love on their fantastic Instagram! This plum bircher muesli – summer in a bowl, is a new favourite in our morning routine (along with this smoothie of course). Happy hearts and happy bellies you guys.

  1. I’m a longstanding Bircher Muesli fan and eat it every week day. We also love that you can make it the night before to make life easier in the morning. However, my muesli is really boring compared to this bowl of pink, fruity delight. I think I need to up my game!!!

  2. What a delicious combination of flavours 🙂 I haven’t bought plums this year, no idea why! I have a bad habit of buying the same foods over and over again. I would love to give this recipe a try so I need to get some plums on my next shopping trip 🙂

  3. Bircher muesli just takes me right back to my days in Switzerland when a gang of us au pairs would meet up for breakfast and have a bowl full loaded with thick Swiss mountain cream – heaven!

  4. I don’t know that I’ve seen Bircher muesli in the U.S., but this recipe looks fantastic! I love your pre-planning of meals for the following day… what a huge relief that must be!

    1. Really? I would have thought you would get it over there? You can make Bircher muesli from regular muesli! Oh yeah, I’m all about the meal prep, more time to sleep in!

  5. Sus! I saw your wedding cake and it was beautiful! What a gift to give to your friend! It was really something and those flowers! Love this take on bircher muesli – and I’m all about plums at the moment! Sending love xo

Thank You! I love hearing from you all.
