The old cliché saying goes – breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Various studies have proven this to be true. We have come up with 10 delicious breakfast smoothie recipes with fruit to help fuel you up for the day ahead.

Is it healthy to have smoothies for breakfast?

Smoothies can make a healthy breakfast that is if you have a fair balance of ingredients and nutrients. This includes protein, carbs, and healthy fats. Smoothies that heavily rely on vegetables over fruit cut down your sugar and increase the fibre content. You also want to avoid adding a lot of fruit juice and sweeteners, like syrups and honey, to limit the sweet stuff. Adding yoghurt helps to make your smoothies more filling, so you will stay fuller for longer.

The liquid bases you use in your smoothie also play a big role. Fruit juices are great however if you want to opt for a healthier, less sweet option, then go for milk or a non-dairy milk alternative, like almond, coconut, or oat milk.

Can I have a breakfast smoothie every day?

If you’re looking to get your own blender to use and start making smoothies at home, you’re already one step ahead with saving yourself money. This way you can control exactly what goes into your smoothies. Enjoying a breakfast smoothie every day is absolutely fine if you make sure it has a good balance of nutrients.

Easy Easter Egg Cheesecake Recipe (No-Bake!)

This easy Easter Egg Cheesecake recipe is a must-have Easter dessert. It's super simple (no-bake!) and perfect to get the kids involved with!
Course Dessert


  • 2 Hollow chocolate Easter Eggs
  • 150 grams Biscuits (most of your favourite biscuits will work – we love Oreo, Lotus, Biscoff, Digestives etc.)
  • 50 grams Unsalted butter (melted)
  • 150 grams Marscapone
  • 200 grams Soft cheese
  • 5 tbsp Icing sugar (sieved)
  • 200 grams Double cream (chilled cream whips better)

Chocolate sauce to drizzle

  • 8 tbsp Milk (any milk will work, but whole milk will make it thicker and creamier)
  • 170 grams Chocolare chips

To serve

  • Your favourite Easter treats (such as Mini Eggs, Smarties, Rolos, Chocolate buttons – let your imagination run wild!)


STEP 1 – Separating the Easter eggs (without breaking them!)

  • Carefully run a hot knife along the seam and slowly pry apart. We recommend heating the knife by dipping it into a bowl of hot water.

STEP 2 – Break up the biscuits

  • Tip your biscuits into a bowl (or a sandwich bag) and use the end of a rolling pin to bash to a fine crumb. Alternatively, whizz the biscuits to a fine crumb in a food processor.
  • Stir in the melted butter until well combined (slowly add more butter if the mixture is too dry) Carefully spoon the mixture into the Easter egg halves and gently compress using the back of the spoon. Transfer to the fridge and chill until needed.

STEP 3 – The cheesecake filling

  • Mix the soft cheese, mascarpone, and icing sugar in a medium bowl with a wooden spoon until smooth.
  • In a separate bowl, beat the double cream to soft peaks using a whisk. An electric whisk is easier, but if whisking by hand, you will need a balloon whisk, a sturdy bowl and elbow grease – it should take no more than 3-5 minutes.
  • Gently fold the whipped cream into the mascarpone mixture, then carefully spoon the cheesecake filling over the chilled biscuit bases in the Easter eggs.
  • Carefully level the surfaces with a palette knife or spatula, then chill for at least 2 hours (preferably overnight) until firm and set.

STEP 4 – Make the chocolate sauce

  • In a small microwave-safe bowl, microwave your milk for 30 seconds, until simmering. Remove from microwave and stir in chocolate until melted and smooth. Leave to cool.

STEP 5 – The fun part – decorating the Easter Egg Cheesecakes

  • Scatter your cheesecake-filled eggs with your chosen Easter treats, then drizzle with caramel or chocolate sauce.

Heart-Shaped Iced Biscuits

Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes
Course Snack


For the biscuits

  • 200 grams unsalted butter (softened)
  • 200 grams golden caster sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 400 grams plain flour (plus extra for dusting)

To decorate

  • 8-12 19g coloured icing pens


Making the dough

  • Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6
  • Put the butter in a bowl and beat it using an electric whisk until soft and creamy.
  • Beat in the sugar, then the egg and vanilla and finally the flour to make a dough (If the dough feels a bit sticky, add a little more flour and knead it in.)

Forming the dough

  • Cut the dough into six pieces and roll out one at a time to about 5mm thickness on a floured surface. 
  • Cut out heart shapes by and or with a heart-shaped cutter, and peel away the leftover dough at the edges. Re-roll any off-cuts and repeat.

Baking the biscuits

  • Transfer the whole mat or the individual biscuits to a baking sheet (transfer them to baking parchment if not using a mat) and bake for 7-10 mins or until the edges are just brown. You should be able to fit about 12 on each sheet. If you are using two sheets, then the one underneath will take a minute longer.
  • Leave to cool completely and repeat with the rest of the dough. 


  • Ice the biscuits using the pens to make stripes or dots, or colour in the whole biscuit if you like. They will keep for five days in an airtight container.

Whilst the convenience of having an almond milk delivery to your doorstep is one we all love, making your own can be just as fun. You might be wondering, how is almond milk made? This homemade almond milk recipe allows you to control the amount of sweetness and allows you to test different thicknesses to the dairy free milk.

Almond milk is a non dairy milk alternative made from almonds. It has a nutty flavour and a creamy consistency and can be used as a replacement for cow’s milk.  It’s a plant-based milk alternative that is suitable for vegans and contains no dairy or animal ingredients. It comes in different types such as sweetened and unsweetened. Unsweetened vegan milk is thought to be healthier for you and can be used in direct replacement for cow’s milk.

So, how is almond milk made? It is very simple to make your very own almond milk with the method only requiring only 2 ingredients, 10 minutes, and a blender.

Almond milk

How is Almond milk made?

Making your very own almond milk starts with soaking almonds overnight in cool water. Warm water will drain the flavour out of the almonds so make sure the water is cool, but not freezing cold. It is also important to leave the almonds in a fridge overnight and not out on the counter. In the morning, drain the almonds thoroughly and then add to a blender. In the blender, add water, salt and anything else you wish to add. You can add vanilla, dates or berries for different variations of flavours.

Once added, blend for 1-2 minutes until combined. Then using a nut milk bag, if you don’t have one of these you can easily use a clean tea towel, strain out the mixture into a bowl or glass.

How long your milk lasts depends on the temperature of your fridge and how fresh the ingredients are. On average we would say your milk should last around 4-5 days.

Homemade almond milk

We hope the answer to your question – ‘how is almond milk made?’ has been answered however if making homemade almond milk is not for you and you wish to have an almond milk delivery we offer unsweetened almond milk and sweetened almond milk. The creamy and fresh tasting almond milk can be delivered twice weekly to your doorstep by our local milkmen.

You may have tried our delicious McQueens oat milk before, but have you ever tried making it yourself? Homemade oat milk is not as complicated as you might think and can be done using only one ingredient. Oat milk is lactose free which makes oat milk perfect for those who are lactose intolerant. It is important to note that making oat milk is not like making other alternative milks like almond milk. With homemade oat milk, the goal is to press and squeeze the the mixture as little as possible. This is to make sure you have the right consistency. Read below to find out how to make your own oat milk. Alternatively you a can get your Oat milk delivered to you door twice week in cartons or reusable glass bottles.

Homemade Oat Milk


  • 100 g Porridge Oats


  • Put the porridge oats into a bowl and fill it up with water from the tap. Cover the bowl with a tea towel and let the bowl sit for 4 hours or overnight. Do not put in the fridge.
  • Once you have let the oats overnight or for 4 hours, take a sieve and sieve the mixture and draining the water. Rinse the oats under the tap for a few seconds.
  • Now, put the oats into a blender or food processor with 750ml of cold water and 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt. Blend until completely smooth with no oats visible. The more you blend, the creamier your homemade oat milk will be.
  • Put the sieve over a bowl or jug and let the mixture pour out. Leave to strain for about 1 hour.
  • When most of the mixture has been strained, take the sides of the cloth together and squeeze tightly to extract the oat milk.
  • At this point, you can bottle it up and keep in the fridge until you are ready to drink. If the oat milk is too thick for your liking, you can add 50ml of cold water until you reach the consistency you like.

The first time you make homemade milk, you might find it time consuming and tedious but the more you make it, the easier it will become. This drink will last 2-3 days in the fridge and for the best taste, we recommend you shake before use. Making this milk can be a fun task to do at the weekend and you can add your own variations to it. Some people like to add dates when making it or add more salt to it.

Homemade Oat milk

Can I use any type of oats?

Porridge oats do work the best, however you can try using rolled oats to make your homemade milk. The coarser the oat is, the longer it take for them to soak and sieved so porridge oats are best.

My homemade milk is too thin, what can I do?

If your cloth is too thick, this can cause the drink to become thin. This is because more of the mixture is being trapped in the cloth. A muslin cloth is a great type of cloth to use to make sure your milk isn’t too thin. As the recipe states, you can add water to thin the milk but there isn’t much you can do if it’s too thin.

My milk separates when in the fridge, why has this happened?

This is an common occurrence and can happen with almond milk or soya milk. To help with this, simply shake or stir the oat milk before consuming to bring it together again.

Making your own non dairy milk is a great way to start if you are looking to create your own alternative milk. The oat drink is a great addition to tea, coffee, breakfast cereal or even as a drink on its own.

We’re sure that this recipe will spark your interest for making your very own homemade alternative milk. It is a great non dairy alternative to cow’s milk and is widely used for those unable to consume traditional cow’s milk or for anyone who follows a vegan diet.

Oato Oat Milk

If making oat milk is not your thing, then we are pleased to now offer oat milk from Oato which comes in glass reusable bottles. The Oato milk is a creamy milk alternative which is lactose, nut, sugar and soy free. It is made with the freshest British ingredients. It contains no animal products so it is safe to consume if you follow a vegan or plant based diet. Many have said it is the best oat milk and because of the ingredients it is made from. It is also lactose free which makes it the perfect milk alternative as lactose free milk is good for you and offers a suitable alternative.

Oatomilk is made from British ingredients and packed with the right amount of nutrients required. Many say this plant based alternative is one of the best tasting oat milks. Oat milk for lactose intolerant sufferers is the perfect option and gives a wonderful taste to tea and coffee.

Poached eggs taste great. They taste even better when you know the secrets to ensure the perfect shape and the yolk seamlessly slides out the whites. Why not have a go using your McQueens Dairies Free Range Eggs?

Top tips

  1. When it comes to the depth of the water, using a pot with a minimum of 3-4 inches of water is what will give you the perfect round shape to your poached egg. Using a shallow pan with an inch or 2 of water, you will end up with a flat poached egg.
  2. Using fresh eggs that have been delivered or bought the day of you making your poached eggs will result in tighter whites. It will also give more of the spherical shape. Our delicious free range eggs delivered in the morning will be perfect for this.
  3. Cracking your McQueens Dairies eggs into a small sieve and draining out the liquid egg white will help to keep the shape. Transfer the eggs into a smaller dish, this will make it easier to slide into the pot of water.
  4. Adding vinegar to the water will help the egg to maintain the round shape. Adding salt to the water will change the density of the water. This will cause the egg whites to splay. Add a tablespoon of vinegar and stir it in the water at speed, then take your egg and drop it into the middle.
  5. For a firm, white and liquid yolk, set a timer for 3 minutes and then remove from the pot. Gently tap your egg to see if it is to your liking, if not, pop back into the water for a further 30 seconds.

Making homemade yoghurt isn’t as difficult or complex as you may think. It does take some time and the key is to ensure good temperature control but after you taste the finished product we think the effort is worth it. The best part is, all you need is 2 simple ingredients.

Homemade Yoghurt


  • 2 Litres McQueens Dairies Milk
  • 64 g Plain Yoghurt


  • The first step is to heat up your McQueens Dairies milk. Pour the milk into a large pot on a medium-high heat and warm to just under boiling level. Stir gently to ensure the milk does not stick to the bottom of the pot.
  • Once your milk has been brought to just below boiling point, reduce the heat and allow it cool until it is warm to the touch.
  • Gently add the yoghurt to the pot of milk and whisk until the yoghurt is combined with the milk. Once this is done, remove from the heat.
  • Allow the yoghurt to set for around 4 hours. The longer it sets, the thicker it will be.
  • Once it has set for a minimum of 4 hours you can transfer to the fridge before enjoying.
  • Transfering the yoghurt into storage containers will keep your homemade yoghurt fresh for around 2 weeks.

Hints and tips for making homemade yoghurt

  1. Make sure the milk you use for this recipe is whole milk as this will give a richer taste. If you want to make low fat yoghurt, use skimmed milk and opt for a low fat yoghurt when buying.
  2. Getting your milk to the right temperature is important as this will affect the temperature. You can use a thermometer to ensure it reaches 180°F.
  3. Using air-tight jars are the best ways to store your yoghurt to maintain its freshness and keep your yoghurt for longer.
  4. To make different variations of flavours, you can simply blend any fruit of your choice and add this to the milk and yoghurt mix.
