The ugly, tasty truth about overnight muesli

Since I had not been travelling much, I will share a little about my domestic life. Today, I’ll be talking about a simple dish: overnight muesli.

A few months ago, I saw an acquaintance post her overnight muesli on Instagram. I was intrigued and I started making it for work. Since my experiment. a few colleagues and friends have started making their own overnight muesli. Hurray!

I love overnight muesli but it’s not as beautiful as the internet is trying to make you believe.

Beautiful lies about overnight muesli

The ugly truth is of overnight muesli is that once you start digging into it, it looks downright disgusting.

 

A few comments about my overnight muesli that I’ve received:

  • Eww… It looks gross.
  • It looks like baby puke. But it must be tasty ’cause disgusting things are tasty.

The following photo has rolled oats, raisins, honey and Greek yogurt. It looks messy and icky.

Despite all the comments, I still love my overnight muesli and I’ve been having it nearly every morning for breakfast. It’s filling and can keep me filling satisfied until late into the afternoon. It’s also very good for the bowels. ;)

How to make overnight muesli if you’re lazy

After four months of making overnight muesli, I’ve discovered my secret lazy recipe. It requires less effort but is tasty too. In the past, I use regular milk or half-sweetened soy milk then add honey and Greek yogurt.

Nowadays, I use half-sweetened almond-flavored soy milk and I can skip honey and Greek yogurt.
