I received Mu Mu Muesli in exchange for my honest review.
The word “muesli” takes me back to my childhood, as I vividly remember having muesli quite often. While it has been some time since I have had it, I was excited to try Mu Mu Muesli.
I have had a lot of people ask me exactly what is muesli? It is a mix of raw, uncooked oats with other ingredients, and can be prepared several ways. Mu Mu Muesli is all natural, and tastes fantastic. I love that it doesn’t have additives like artificial colors, dyes, or preservatives – and no added sweeteners. Not only that, but the ingredients are good for you. So in a world full of sugary, overprocessed cereals, Mu Mu Muesli is a refreshing change!
I love this mix of muesli, especially the dried cranberries and coconut, and the bits of dried dates.
As a child, I remember my mom having muesli with milk, and I mixed with orange juice. (The orange juice may sound strange, but I am not a big fan of milk, so I eat my cereals with either coconut milk or orange juice!).
There are lots of great ways to eat muesli, probably most commonly as a cereal. Mu Mu Muesli suggests some methods, but you can also come up with your own creative ways too.
Muesli & Milk
Eat this just like you would a regular cereal or granola – add milk, coconut milk, etc. Or juice, if you are like me!
You can treat this just like you would oatmeal – heat it up as a nice warm breakfast cereal.
Overnight oats have gained a lot of popularity lately, but it has been around for a while, and is a popular method in Sweden. Combine your Mu Mu with 1/2 cup water or milk with 1/4 cup yogurt and let soak overnight. You can add in anything else you’d like as well, like fresh fruit, honey, and so on.
Mix with yogurt
I always liked mixing cereal with yogurt, and this is no different.
Eat it plain
I love foods like trail mix and “raw” types of meal bars, and I have no problem eating muesli by the handful. (Maybe with some coconut milk to drink?). Only downside to this? It can be messy eating it out of your hand if you are on the go.
There are other ways too, so be creative!
The ingredients are simple and straightforward, all-natural with no artificial ingredients: Organic whole rolled oats, whole wheat flakes, organic coconut, cranberries, organic dates, roasted almonds, organic raisins, organic flax seeds.
Another thing I love about Mu Mu Muesli is that it isn’t just about eating healthy, but also about sustainability. The production of Mu Mu is solar powered. Their ingredients are sourced from farms in the US. The Mu Mu packaging is eco-friendly. I love when a company takes everything into consideration, like supporting local and being mindful about their environmental impact.
Interestingly enough, Mu Mu Muesli is created not too far from where I live in Upstate NY. I thought it was pretty neat that the owners run a small operation in the Sharon Springs area, and by some strange coincidence, my father-in-law saw a bag of this at my house and remarked that he makes a special trip (a long one, at that) to one of the Mu Mu Muesli retailers just for this muesli!
As a busy mom, Mu Mu Muesli is an easy addition to my day, and keeps me on track with eating healthy. Our mornings are a whirlwind, as I have to get the kids out the door and then I rush to get ready for work. I am on my feet for almost 6 hours straight and then I’m back home to take the kids to their activities, meets, and so on – or doing chores. It is important to me to eat foods that are natural but also help sustain my energy during the day, and Mu Mu Muesli is a perfect way to start my day!
