Tropical bircher is the perfect quick, healthy Summer breakfast! You could easily mix this together in the morning and take to work to eat at your desk. Have the dry ingredients and mashed banana ready to go the night before so its just the milks left to be added. Normally bircher muesli needs to be soaked overnight, but this version you can make instantly! It’s important to use fine rolled oats, also known as quick oats or Scotch oats for this recipe or the liquid won’t absorb quickly enough to be eaten straight away!
