Muesli is a breakfast cereal made from rolled oats, fruit and nuts. While muesli with milk is a conventional go-to cereal for breakfast, did you know that it can also be used to make delicious smoothies that are both nutritious and delicious?

This breakfast cereal offers a host of health benefits due to its high fibre content, which can make you feel full for a longer duration of time, hence helping with weight loss and regulating the digestive system. Muesli also happens to be a rich source of protein, so while you sip a refreshing smoothie made from this cereal, you would also be providing nourishment to your bones and hair, as well as managing blood pressure.  

Therefore, to help you get the benefits of muesli in an easy-to-consume way, we bring to you this recipe for a smoothie that is full of nutrients and will pack a punch of energy to your day!

Here are the ingredients you will need for their muesli smoothie 

 ¼ cup muesli

3 tbsp water

1 tbsp soaked chia seeds

1 small banana

1 cup milk

½ tsp powdered cinnamon

 2-4 tbsp honey

Peanut butter (as a topping)

 2 – 3 ice cubes 

Here’s how you can prepare this nutritious muesli smoothie:

Step 1: A night before preparing the smoothie, place the muesli in a small bowl and cover it with 3 tablespoons of milk. Refrigerate the muesli overnight.

Step 2: Soak the chia seeds by placing them in a bowl with 4 tablespoons of water. Place it in the refrigerator overnight. This will make the water and seeds gelatinous.

Step 3: Scoop up the chia seeds and place them a blender.

Step 4: Add muesli, chopped banana, cinnamon powder and honey to the blender. Blend the mixture till a puree like consistency is formed.

Step 5: Crush ice cubes and add them to the blender. Blend the mixture and add peanut butter as a topping before you serve or drink the smoothie.

Chia seeds are low on calories and are loaded with antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids, thereby helping in managing weight and warding off heart ailments. Banana, rich in vitamin C, can help protect your body against cell and tissue damage, produce collagen (the protein which holds your skin, bones and body together) and support brain health by producing serotonin (a hormone that affects our sleep cycle, moods and stress levels).

So, this recipe packs a nutritious punch, as it is full of protein, antioxidants, calcium and fiber that helps you stay full for a longer duration of time, manage weight effectively and positively affect blood sugar and cholesterol levels. The milk beautifully supplements the oats, both in terms of taste and health factors as it helps in building immunity, aids digestion and makes the bones stronger.

Make sure you try out this smoothie that balances health and taste!
