Tips

  • Use strawberries or other seasonal fruits in place of raspberries if desired.
  • Try using different nuts and seeds to vary the taste and texture. Hazelnuts or slivered almonds could be used instead of pistachios.
  • Poached, stewed or canned fruits (e.g. pear, rhubarb, peaches or apricots) could be used in place of the raspberries to garnish the muesli.
  • For an extra fruity version, puree 250g of raspberries to make a raspberry coulis, and add a small amount to the bottom of each bowl or glass before the muesli (as in picture).
