Sweet mornings

August 1, 2015

I’ve been on a bit of a ‘yogurt’ kick lately. Soya or coconut, it’s my go-to brekka during the week.

Next week I’ll mix things up. Next week I’ll make a smoothie, or maybe stock the freezer with homemade waffles, ready to pop in the toaster on a Monday morning. Maybe next week.
I’m better at the weekend – we crack out the croissant tubes or maybe plate up some avocado toast. It’s my mid-week laziness that gets the better of me.

Sometimes even the smallest changes can make a difference, though. Like trying a new ‘milk’.

Alpro kindly sent me a sample of their latest drink – Alpro Coconut and Almond ‘milk’.
(I really hate how you can’t say ‘milk’ or ‘yogurt’ unless it’s been stolen from a new mum. Sigh.)

^^My current love is this country breakfast sprinkle from Holland and Barrett. The perfect combo of dried fruit (no stingy portions!) with nuts and seeds. Perfect.^^

^^Current favourite granola – Dorset Cereals. Yum.^^

Dream breakfast, right there. Though I wish I had peanut butter blobbed on top.
I’ve also used this drink to make mashed potato – and it’s got a big thumbs up from us. I love that when you enjoy it with cereal you can taste the subtle flavour of almond and coconut, but when you cook with it these flavours don’t shine through, making it really versatile for both sweet and savoury cooking.

I hope you have a lovely weekend. What are your plans?
