Citrusberry Bircher Breakfast

A make ahead breakfast, worthy of company but easy enough for every day! I recommend that you do not use quick or minute oats, go the real stuff and you will be happy! If you can not find currants, try sultanas.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix the oats, juice, milk, yogurt, currants and honey together in a lage bowl.
  2. Cover the bowl with cling wrap and keep in fridge overnight.
  3. In the morning, spoon evenly into bowls and divide the quartered and chopped pecans between them as well as the strawberries.
  4. Eat as is, if you like it wet you can add some skim milk after the strawberries and pecans.
  5. Set time 1 day - dont cook it :).

Note: I am rating this on the taste after cooking. I was not sure whether I should cook this or not, since I have never heard of eating oatmeal uncooked. I did taste it raw, but the texture and my intuition told me I should cook it before eating it. Since this was a contest entry, I could not ask the chef their intentions. It did stick a lot to the pot while cooking, and was very thick by that point, so I added more milk to it once it was done. Despite all that, it did taste quite good! I did like very much the flavors of the blood orange, strawberries and pecans together.

WONDERFUL EASY and HEALTHY! I made a half recipe as directed and put it in a tupperware, then sprinkled pecans over the top and quartered fresh strawberries over them. So easy to take it out of the fridge the next morning and it's ready! The red currants I used plumped up nicely. This was a beautiful lavender color from the blood orange juice and the flavor was great too! The only thing I didn't care for on it was the pecans. I had never had oatmeal this way and it gives me tons of ideas for juice/fruit/dried fruit combos. Thanks and good luck in the contest!

Wow! This was really good. I will definitely be making this again. It was a very nice combination of flavors and textures and just the right sweetness. Day 2 I don't know that it changed any over another night, so I think the familiarity gave tasting it again that kind of eye-rolling, that's-so-good, comfort food quality. And today I had my baby hanging on my legs, starting to cry. So I started to wolf it down but stopped myself so I could wait for a little later to enjoy it. It's good stuff!
