If you are already familiar with the concept of overnight oats and Bircher, you know what a creamy and soothing breakfast it is. But then you also know that its pale and somewhat sad-looking appearance often scares away non-believers. This is the ultimate solution. Our tummy-loving Bircher uses a kefir smoothie as a base, which adds healthy, live bacteria that are great for your gut. It is topped with the most beautifully bright and juicy citrus salad, with golden raisins, chopped pistachios and bee pollen. A real stunner in both appearance and flavour!

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient

For the tummy-loving kefir bircher

Quantity Ingredient
375ml kefir
1 ripe banana, peeled
1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated
1-2 teaspoons quality raw honey
1 teaspoon bee pollen
90g rolled oats
1 tablespoon golden linseeds

For the citrus salad

Quantity Ingredient
1 pink or regular grapefruit
1 regular or blood orange
1 clementine or tangerine

To serve

Quantity Ingredient
golden raisins or brown raisins
pistachio nuts, finely chopped
bee pollen
fresh mint leaves, finely sliced
quality raw runny honey
kefir

Method

  1. Put the kefir, banana, ginger, honey and bee pollen in a blender and blend on a high speed until completely smooth. Taste and adjust the sweetness to your liking by adding more honey if necessary. Pour into a bowl, stir in the oats and linseeds and set aside to soak in the fridge for at least an hour or overnight.
  2. When ready to serve, using a sharp knife, remove the peel and white pith from the citrus fruits and cut along either side of the white membrane to remove the segments.
  3. Spoon the Bircher into two medium-sized bowls (one of which is featured in the photo), top with the citrus segments and finish with a sprinkling of golden raisins, pistachios, bee pollen and mint as well as a drizzle of honey and a dash of kefir on the side.
