Today I'm introducing a couple of my favourite smoothie recipes to brighten up your breakfast.  I created them especially for the Kenwood kCook multi-cooker launch breakfast that I hosted recently.

It was a beautiful morning that was held in Balmoral in Sydney at The Public Dining Room.

The sun was shining and the water was sparkling as guests watched swimmers taking their early morning plunge in the autumn sunshine.  Kids were frolicking in the water and building sandcastles. There was a feeling of excitement in the air.

A crowd gathered with lots of my foodie friends and media who came along.

I got myself included in a super hunk 'manwich'. Not that I am complaining, I can think of worse ways to spend a morning.

Then next up I did a demonstration on two of the new machines, the X pro blender and the kCook which I demonstrated a breakfast bar recipe in.  It was delicious and I'll share this recipe next week on the blog. I used a gluten free muesli, coconut milk, berries and rice malt syrup to make the bars.

Everyone enjoyed a delicious breakfast and washed it down with a smoothie or two.

    Lee, what brand of almond milk would you recommend purchasing? I know it’s best to make it at home but I it’s more convenient for me to buy it at the moment. I’ve been getting the blue diamond unsweetened one but I’m concerned about the ingredients. Thanks!

      I use the Eco mil brand sugar free version if I don’t have time to make my own 🙂
