When you start a blog, you have to ask yourself what you’re going to post first. For me, this moment is the deciding factor in whether the blog actually happens or not. More often than not, I freeze at the idea of writing a post worthy of my plans for the blog. Will it be good enough? Will it be interesting enough?
Well, enough of that. Instead of some intro-post or something, I’ll dive straight into the creative stuff that inspired starting this blog in the first place.
Namely, the Yogurt Muesli Cup.
For years I lived within walking distance of a grocery store called “Rewe”. Kinda overpriced, but convenient. And every time I walked through the fresh foods section, I’d have one eye on this cup of goodness right here. Not only does it have no-gross-sugar-added German muesli and yogurt, but it’s brimming with nuts and sliced fruit. Once or twice I’d volunteer to walk the dog just so I could buy one of these and eat it on the way home…
Here’s the ingredients list, copied studiously from the back of the cup:
- White and red raisins
- Brazil nuts
- 3.5% fat yogurt
- 3.5% fat milk
- Banana slices
- Unpeeled apple chunks
- Pear chunks
- Grape halves
For some reason the ingredients list also mentioned percentages, so here those are too:
- 18% nuts and milk and yogurt
- 45% muesli
- 37% fruit
There you have it! My favorite breakfast food ever. Or snack. Or dessert. Don’t forget to post pictures if you make it yourself!
*Note: Muesli over there is not what it is in America. American muesli is like eating tiny, hopelessly crunchy cookies made out of grains held together by sugar. If you want to get this right, either use German / Swiss muesli (I saw it at Walmart once… or you can order it online at German sites), or mix together some of these yourself:
- Rolled oats
- Random dried fruit (cranberries, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, apricot, etc)
- Chopped dates and/or coconut flakes
- Other grains and seeds, such as sunflower seeds, barley, sesame seeds, puffed rice, cornflakes
- Chopped nuts, such as almond slices, walnut pieces, hazelnuts, etc
- This doesn’t work in a yogurt cup per se, but I’ve seen muesli with chocolate chunks
