There are many versions of Muesli as there are breakfast cereals, but this one is similar to the original Swiss version - a combination of overnight-soaked grains, nuts, dried fruit and yogurt. Make it the night before and you'll have breakfast ready when you are.
This is not a hot breakfast for a cool morning. If you prefer, have it for an afternoon wake-you-up snack.
