I have never made French Toast before so I was looking forward to trying this delicious recipe by Glenisk. The French Toast is served with Glenisk Organic Greek Style Rich Dark Cherry Yogurt. This recipe turned out great and I would definitely make this French Toast again for a treat.
1-2 tsp Cinnamon 4 Medium eggs 1 tbsp Vanilla Essence 8 Slices Whole meal/brioche or sourdough bread 2 tbsp Oil 200g Glenisk Organic Greek Style Rich Dark Cherry Yogurt
Garnish (optional) Fresh fruit and icing sugar
Crack the eggs into a bowl and whisk, add vanilla essence and combine. Place a pan on medium heat. Drizzle with oil.
Pick the bread up with a fork and dip back and front in egg mixture, do this one at a time.
Transfer the egg dipped pieces of bread to the preheated pan and fry for a minute on either side until golden and the egg mixture is cooked.
Sprinkle French toasts with cinnamon and icing sugar and serve with Dark Cherry Yogurt and fresh fruit.
Porridge is my go-to breakfast and I have it almost every morning. It keeps me going until lunchtime and is particularly nourishing during the winter months when the weather is cold. My favourite brand of porridge is Flahavan’s. There are many possible porridge toppings which I have listed below. This list may be useful when you are shopping for groceries next.🌅
Peanut butter/Almond Butter
Porridge can be made using water and/or a variety of milks🥛
My friend Niamh recommended trying Oatly Milk Barista Edition in porridge so I gave it a go. Apparently the Barista Edition is much nicer than the others so I will take her word for it. Oatly Oat Drink is available in Barista Edition, Organic Edition, Chocolate Edition and Orange Mango Edition. Chilled Oatly Oat Drink can be bought Whole, Semi, Skinny, Semi Organic or Chocolate Deluxe. Oatly also produces On The Go and Cooking editions, Oatgurt, as well as several ice cream flavours.
Product Name: The Original Oatly Oat Drink Barista Edition
Allergens: 🥛Dairy free 🥣Oats 🌱Free from Soya 🥦Suitable for Vegans
This Oat Drink is light brown in colour and has a smooth consistency. This Oat Drink tasted good in my porridge as an alternative to regular milk or water. Once opened, this oat drink should be refrigerated and consumed within 5 days.
Would I buy again?

This was my first time to ever buy passion fruit so I had to look up how it is eaten. To eat a passion fruit raw, it is cut in half and a spoon is used to remove the pulp and seeds. The pulp and seeds are edible, the rind is not. Smoothies taste better slightly chilled, so always add a handful of ice to the mix.
1 large ripe mango, peeled and cut into pieces
2 passion fruit, flesh scooped out
1 orange, peeled and cut into pieces
2 bananas, peeled and cut into pieces
Put the fruit in a blender and top up with 150ml water and a handful of ice. Whizz for about 1 minute until smooth, then pour into glasses and serve. This recipe serves 2.
This recipe is by Martha Stewart and is quick and easy to make. I enjoyed this smoothie this morning for breakfast with a bowl of porridge. Smoothies are a healthy drink that can be made with all kinds of fruit. I look forward to trying more smoothie recipes in the future.
1 cup slightly thawed frozen strawberries
2 tablespoons light coconut milk
3/4 cup water
Blend all ingredients until smooth.

I love peanut butter. It goes with so many foods. I love it on homemade brown bread, on bagels, in porridge, with pitted dates or with sliced bananas. Peanut butter is a high-calorie spread that goes with many food products and can be used as a baking ingredient. The higher % nuts a nut butter has, the less refined sugar it has. Peanut butter is high in protein and good fats and should be eaten in moderation.

I enjoyed this smooth peanut butter spread on a bagel with sliced bananas this morning for breakfast. I normally have porridge for breakfast, so this was a nice change. I prefer smooth peanut butter to crunchy peanut butter if I am eating it on bread as it is easier to spread. This peanut butter is a light brown colour and the consistency is quite liquidy so should be stored in a cool place once opened. Oil separation may occur so the peanut butter should be stirred. This peanut butter is made in Galway and the Totally Nutz company also makes almond butter and crunchy peanut butter. I look forward to trying this in porridge and as a baking ingredient.

This is an easy Lidl recipe that serves 2. Any type of instant coffee can be used but instant espresso powder creates a delicious topping. A light milk or alternative dairy milk can be used if desired. The milk quantity can be adjusted depending on the size of the glasses.
2 tablespoons instant coffee
2 tablespoons caster sugar
1 handful ice cubes
Mix coffee and sugar in a bowl with 2 tablespoons of boiling water using electric whisk.
Fill two glasses with ice and divide 250ml milk between them.
