Frozen Treats for Hot Summer Days

This One's Not for The Birds

Super_Seed_Muesli

A bowlful of nutritionally packed seeds, fiber rich oats, nuts full of healthy fats and powerhouse fruits like goji and blueberries may sound like a recipe meant for the birds, but please don’t set it outside. Make a big batch of this good-for-you muesli mix and include it in your morning routine.  It’s even good as a mid-morning or early afternoon snack. Add your favorite nut milk or kefir and enjoy it cold or gently warmed on the stovetop.  A dash of cinnamon and vanilla are always a great addition, too. Enjoy!
