Review: Lifeway Kefir smoothies – for a quick and healthy breakfast

I don’t know about you, but I am always in such a rush in the mornings to get everyone ready and out of the house for nursery, school and work. I often don’t have time to make breakfast for myself, especially as the kids eat out of the house, but I also don’t function well without something to eat early on.

Smoothies or yoghurt drinks could be a useful solution as they can be grabbed from the fridge on the way out of the house and consumed on the go or once you get to work.

We were sent some samples of Lifeway Kefir to try out in return for an honest review. Lifeway Kefir is a live and active cultured milk smoothie drink, a bit like a drinkable yoghurt. You can drink it on it’s own, enjoy it over cereal or fruit, or add to fruit smoothies – and it comes in different flavours including original, mango, blueberry and strawberry.

How to Make: A Sandcastle Cake

A friend and I made this sandcastle cake for a surprise 30th birthday party. We were both pretty impressed with how it turned out so I thought I would share how to make it. Blogging about it was a bit of an afterthought though so apologies for the lack of ‘in progress’ photos!

The good thing about this cake is that it doesn’t need to look perfect and completely symmetrical. You can use whatever size and shape cake tins you have, and your castle can be as adventurous and as detailed – or as simple – as you like.

Happy Pancake Day

We have had a couple of trial runs over the past few weeks already and we will be scoffing pancakes for tea after this evening’s swimming lesson. Though I must confess, I am tempted to make some for lunch too! (more…)
