Farmhouse Breakfast Week

We’re halfway through Farmhouse Breakfast Week and the aim of the campaign is to promote the importance of eating a healthy breakfast everyday. Studies have shown how important breakfast is and that it can impact on energy levels and behaviour later in the day. I know for a fact I’m useless until I’ve had my bowl of porridge!

On their website there is some great lesson ideas to incorporate breakfast into the curriculum. They also have free resources available to order. I ordered some of their posters and recipe books which were with me within a day, great service!

While flicking through the recipes on the site I saw this recipe for Hot Chocolate & Raspberry Shake. I know many of my pupils would love this for breakfast. Not only does it have some fruit in it, but also the goodness of oatmeal.

Hot Chocolate & Raspberry Shake
Serves 2

600ml semi skimmed milk
2 tbsp drinking chocolate
3 tbsp medium oatmeal
100g raspberries (you could use frozen raspberries)

1) Place the milk, drinking chocolate and oatmeal in a saucepan and bring to the boil, simmer gently for 5 minutes until the oatmeal is soft.

2) Place the raspberries in a food processor or liquidiser and add the chocolate milk and blend until smooth.
3) Allow to cool slightly before pouring into 2 tall smoothie glasses
