A Big Thank You (and A Little Recipe)!

Hello there! I hope you've all had a jolly nice weekend and a not-too-rubbish Monday back at work! I got a lovely surprise on Saturday when a big packet of crafty goodies was sitting waiting for me at breakfast time - my giveaway winnings from the very generous Deanne of Quirky Boots (check out her beautiful Folksy shop here!)!

There are notepads, embellishments, fabric flowers, brads, gift bags and a beautiful pack of cupcake-themed cards, woop! You can get lots of these goodies (and plenty more!) over at Deanne's crafting material shop Quirky Pit Stop, so go give her shops a visit! Thank you, Deanne!

Today I have been gotten by some kind of allergic reaction (I'm not sure to what...I hope it wasn't last night's cocktails...!) and have done very little except drink cups of tea and blow my nose...attractive! I did achieve something in my snuffly state today, which was to make my week's breakfast smoothies, and I thought I'd share my recipe with you!

Mmmm! Okay, this photo is not the best (I'm really not one for food presentation, more for eating it immediately ha!), but I assure you that it is delicious, and perfect for grabbing as I leg it out of the door, after a morning swim or when checking my emails, and great for using up slightly funky-looking fruit that's been hanging around for a while...!

It's really really easy to make, and really good for you! I make a giant jug at the beginning of the week for my week's breakfasts, so these are the ingredients for four (generous!) helpings:
- five pieces of fruit (I usually go for a couple of apples, a couple of bananas and a pear, because I like my smoothies sweet)
- a 500ml pot of fat-free yoghurt (I use strawberry)
- half a pint of milk
- a couple of handfuls of oats
- a packet of frozen smoothie fruit if I have it!

Just chop the fruit, add it to a blender with the yoghurt, milk and oats and blend it until it's smooth...yum! Best enjoyed with a toasted cinnamon and raisin muffin...but just as yummy on its own!

Take note - the yoghurt and fruit juice will separate overnight, and look a little suspect, but just give it a stir before pouring it out and it'll whizz back to looking (and tasting) delicious!

What's your favourite super-quick breakfast? I am always late in the morning!
