If you are part of the blogger circuit, you may have seen the posts with the hastag #princesbrekkie. It is all about eating healthier, and making breakfast part of our five a day. Princes chose some families and sent us a box full of goodies.
In the box was a USB stick with some recipes that we could use with the tins of fruit that we had received. Princes recipes have lots of ideas for what we can do to reach our five-a-day. Fruit and vegetables are thought to be one of the best sources of vitamins, minerals and fibre, helping us all to stay healthy.
We chose to make the peach muffins but we doubled the recipe and added pears as well. In the picture the muffins look burned, but they really were not. Sadly there are none left to retake another one to show off to you, as they were demolished by the boys very quickly.
We also made the peach and orange smoothie but again, doubled the recipe and as I had used the peaches in the muffins, we made the smoothie with pineapple and fruit cocktail. We were planning having muffins and smoothie for breakfast the next morning and I was about to put the smoothie in the fridge, but the boys over ruled me, and it was eaten for Sunday tea. They loved the new place mats and we had the candle burning well into the night. Thank you Princes, we had a lovely afternoon making new things.
