This month I have decided to work my way through some of the recipes I have pinned on Pinterest. I am a great collector of recipes, and wanted to actually try some of these out before my boards got too big.
Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day, so seemed like a good place to start! For each recipe I include a link to the original source (in case you aren’t on Pinterest) and the pin.
I absolutely love this recipe. It was incredibly simple to put together, and it was so wonderful to wake up in the morning and have a hearty breakfast all ready to go. I was a little worried that the oatmeal would be a strange texture but I needn’t have worried – smooth and creamy would be the best way to describe it! I had mine with banana and a spoonful of mixed fruit jam – so good! I did find it made enough for two, but it was just as good for breakfast the second day. The second batch I mixed with coconut milk and pineapple, also very yummy. Found here and pinned here.
Banana Oatmeal Smoothie
I love smoothies but I would never have thought to put oatmeal in one. I halved the recipe so it would just serve one, and true to its promise I really did keep me filling full. Rather than cook up oatmeal, I just soaked the oats in the yogurt overnight, like I did for the overnight oats. I also added a little almond milk when I blended it to thin things out. I will definitely be making this again! Found here and pinned here.

Recipes I won’t make again
Pineapple Ginger Smoothie
Not all recipes are worth keeping, and this was one of them. It certainly didn’t live up to its beautiful picture on Pinterest, and although I loved the ginger flavour, the pineapple flavour really didn’t come through, leaving it a little bland. I love the idea of ginger in a smoothie and will definitely try that on my own. Pinned here.
