Fresh Peach Breakfast Goodness
Muesli with Berries for breakfast, lunch, or snack. I'm sure I've eaten it for dinner, too, in the same way you sometimes pour yourself a bowl of Cheerios and call it a day.
Mmmm. I think it's time to go make another batch.
PEACH MUESLI WITH BERRIES2 c. oatmeal, uncooked
2 c. fresh peaches, peeled and chopped
1 1/2 c. apple juice (I've also used white grape juice)
8 oz. vanilla or peach non-fat yogurt (or you can use plain yogurt, with a little maple syrup to sweeten)
1/2 t. vanilla
a large handful of berries (blackberries, blueberries, raspberries -- it doesn't matter) to throw on top of each serving
a small handful of chopped walnuts to throw on top of each serving
In medium bowl (one that has a lid is perfect), combine oatmeal, peaches, juice, yogurt, and vanilla. Stir together well. If eating immediately, throw some in a bowl and toss on the berries and nuts. If eating later, just put in the fridge, covered, until you're ready to eat. Toss on the nuts and berries before serving. Keeps for several days -- if it lasts that long.
NOTE: Recipe comes from the Venice Yacht Club Cookbook of 1998, which was dedicated to the memory of my Aunt Jan, a kind and fun lady. Miss you, Aunt Jan.
NOTE #2: If you have lots and lots of peaches, consider making some peach nectar. Perfect for freezing and giving you that mid-winter reminder of summer.
