Most breakfasts for Marina and I consist of a smoothie and a coffee. It took us a while but eventually we saw the light and decided to combine the two and make an espresso smoothie.

I love breakfast chia puddings and breakfast smoothies so the thought of combining the two sounds like a great breakfast to me. Chia seeds are packed full of fibre, protein and Omega-3 fatty acids.

homemade almond milk

Homemade almond milk made at a fraction of the cost of the store bought variety. We use a lot of almond milk at home particularly in breakfast smoothies. While I normally purchase almond milk from the supermarket I decided to give it a go myself at home. It works and tastes great!

Kangaroo meat is extremely lean and as a result needs to be cooked quickly and is best served medium rare. Grill or pan fry the fillets, make the dressing in a food processor or Thermomix and feel free to mix things up with the salad ingredients.

One of my favourite salads to make in the Thermomix is a broccoli salad from the recipe community. Broccoli, apple and capsicum with a honey, mustard and vinegar dressing. It is the easiest thing to pop all the ingredients into the TM bowl and let the machine do the work. Over the years I have added to the recipe and made a few changes.
