Almond milk Bircher muesli with banana, berries and cacao nibs

Bircher muesli is the ideal summer breakfast, though we've been known to eat this for dessert, too. This one combines chia with the usual oats, along with almond milk for a lighter finish to traditional yoghurt. Buy good almond milk - if you can find cold-pressed all the better - and avoid any containing sweetener and oil. We've topped the muesli with berries, cherries, banana and the crunch of the cacao nibs.
