This summer berry muesli makes for a great morning breakfast but is delicious any time of day.

Summer Berry Breakfast

What’s your go-to summer breakfast?

For me, it’s nut butter toast with berries or muesli with yogurt and summer berries. I tend to save my eggs for lunch, though today I actually had eggs on toast and a strawberry banana smoothie for breakfast since that’s what I was making my 14-year-old.

One thing’s for sure, you will almost always find berries as part of my summer morning routine. We get local berries in our farm share and at our local farmers’ market, but I also keep frozen berries on hand in the freezer for smoothies. Bursting with flavor and loaded with antioxidants, there’s a lot to love about these little color-boosting gems.

But what is muesli?

In case you are not familiar with muesli, it’s a simple mix of grains, nuts, seeds, and dried fruit. You can use any combination that you want, but I prefer one that’s mainly oats, nuts, and seeds. You can get my go-to Cardamom Muesli recipe here.

It’s generally eaten with yogurt or cultured milk (like kefir or filmjolk). You could also mix it with regular or plant-based milk, or a combination.

Unlike granola (another delicious breakfast), it’s not sweet (unless you add dried fruit). To make it sweeter you could:

  • add berries or other fresh, sliced fruit
  • add honey
  • add chia jam
  • mix with vanilla or another flavored yogurt
  • serve it over a smoothie for a muesli smoothie bowl

Gentle Nutrition

In addition to being delicious, the combination of muesli and summer berries will provide you with plenty of fiber. Fiber is good for digestion, the gut microbiome (it feeds the good bacteria), and cholesterol. It will also provide a variety of vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C, potassium, magnesium, and iron. Adding chia seeds (if not already in your muesli) adds more fiber and iron, as well as omega-3 fatty acids.

The muesli and yogurt will also provide protein and fat, both of which are important for satiety and blood sugar regulation. Adding yogurt or cultured milk will also give your gut a dose of probiotics (good bacteria).
