Venzi’s Notes

If you’re looking for quick, easy, and healthy breakfasts that can be prepared ahead of time, this recipe is for you. It uses refreshing, seasonal citrus which pairs perfectly with the earthy flax, toasted nuts, sweet dates and creamy coconut. The coconut makes it SO creamy! But it will still work well if you do not have coconut cream on hand or can’t eat coconut. My favorite orange to use is cara cara orange (any other cara cara fans out there?!), but you could also use a navel orange, a blood orange, or really any other orange variety. Get creative, the muesli is your canvas, ha. I love preparing a few servings of this muesli ahead of time to bring to work for easy breakfasts during the week.
