A fresh start to the day
Start with a pretty wine glass and a layer of chopped fresh fruits. Then add a layer of swiss style muesli and top with plain yogurt. Not all fruits work well with this, but these are the ones I've tried successfully: Plum, Strawberry, Pear, Kiwi, Grapes, Peach, Nectarine.
For the little beauty above, I used a mix of pineapple and strawberries. And cheated a bit on the plain yogurt part - I added maple syrup to balance the tartness of fruits I'd chosen.
So stack up these layers any way you like; its the play of colors in an already pretty glass that perks you up much before you take the first bite.
