Christmas muesli with dried strawberries

This strawberry Christmas muesli is all about the berries so be sure to pick strawberries that a ripe and sweet. Perfect for snacking, it also makes a delicious breakfast, served with coconut yogurt and topped with some fresh lemon thyme, or a crunchy topping for a berry crumble.  It’s best to start this recipe a day ahead, preparing the strawberries is easy but it does take a time to dry them.

Package the muesli in a 1 litre glass jar, tied with a beautiful ribbon and a sprinkle of love – you have a  gorgeous Christmas present filled with love and goodness.
