Day one of my Desk Fest with Alpro

Its only been a recent thing with me, but I do love a good Healthy Breakfast, So when Alpro contacted me about #deskfest I thought what a fab idea. They sent me two types of pouring Yogurt, almond Milk and hazelnut drink.

So my first Up Desk Fest breakfast Strawberry and Bannana smoothie with a Cranberry, Vanilla and apple Granola Yogurt, As I will be working from home, I thought I would treat myself to a good smoothie and a layered yogurt. I used the Vanilla pouring Yougurt mixed with two strawberries and two Bananas. It's just perfect as i am working from my desk creating drawings for my latest project so i need something that is going to give me energy and be tasty. Also if you make your smoothie in a little jar like i did, you can also screw the lid on when you aren't drinking so it doesn't spill everywhere, I am well known for my clumsiness.

I mixed my yogurt into a little glass jar, these would be perfect to make at home for lunch when you go to work, at lunch or for quick snack, you can mix up what you put into it, i decided on dried cranberries and apple granola mixed with the lovely creamy Alpro pouring Yougurt.

I became aware of Alpro products when I was at university, living with a vegetarian and a vegan, it allowed me to experience all different types of food that I don't think i would of come across if I hadn't lived with them. Alpro  is made from plants, Soya, so its natural and good for you, I now only drink Soya milk due to my diet, my health has massively improved since deciding to stop drinking milk ( i am asthmatic so dairy products aren't the best thing for me.) So being able to find this amazing alternative is so great, even my mum who is normally the worst person to try anything new, loved the Pouring Yogurt, she even told  me to quote her in my blog post, "tell them I absolutely loved it, it smells so good" for at least an hour she commented on the beautiful smell oh mother.
