I’m reaching a stage in which I almost make everything I consume by myself. it is cheaper, for sure. but in most cases also fresher and tastier.
Some of these ingredients are very easy to make – Homemade Granola and Homemade vegan yogurt are definitely quick and easy, while some other ingredients like pasta and blue cheese are more challenging.
This Muesli is extremely healthy, cheap and delicious. it is gluten free (but not extremely low on calories 🙂 ) – could be a great breakfast to have in the office or a perfect addition to a nice brunch with Pancakes!
*note that you would need to prepare the Yogurt a day in advance.
*I use a natural Soy milk for the Yogurt, I would love to use almond milk but at a first try it didn’t go very well.
With Bacteria you may prefer to be more careful - boil the soy milk and turn off heat. when it cooled down a bit (and you can taste) - mix with the "starter" - 1 tbsp of soy yogurt or 4 capsules probiotics. stir well.
Keep in sterilized jars (that were filled with boiling water for 5 minutes - to kill germs) at 30-40 degrees C overnight.
if you live in hot climate - outside would due, cover with a clean towel.
if you live in a cold climate - put in the oven at 30 degrees C overnight.
How do we know that it's ready? easy - we taste and check the texture - if it taste and feels like yogurt. you made it. if it's still very runny - keep it outside for a few extra hours.
* I don't always boil the milk and it works fine and keeps in the fridge for over a week.
*Keep some of your yogurt as a starter for your next yogurt, I usually sterilize a small jar and keep it closed until used as a started, this way - it will be kept longer.
Mix together all the ingredients.
spread over a flat baking pan
bake at 160 degrees C for 20 minutes (or until golden brown). make sure to open the oven and turn over the granola every 5 minutes.
Keep in a sealed Jar.
Adding Chia seeds to your Yogurt can be great, it is extremely healthy and full of Omega 3. since it takes some time for the Chia to soften - try mixing it together with the yogurt at least 1 hour in advance.
Add a sweetener to your yogurt. add cut fruits and Granola. Bon-appetite.
Quantities of this recipe - 1 Liter of Yogurt and a medium sized Jar of Granola.
