Easy chicken and noodle soup recipe

A few weeks ago, I made my daughters a dish that they’ll happily eat out of packet. It was a nice idea, but, they refused to eat my home-made version. I was thinking about what to do and my mind drifted off to my own childhood and a chicken and noodle soup that my aunt and grandmother used to make for me.

#EatLikeAPro with the Beko Vacuum Blender

Every morning, Mrs Adams and I start the day with a smoothie made of fresh fruit. Occasionally we’ll also through in some frozen fruit or ice cubes, but the aim is always to start the day with a highly nutritious drink that tastes great. Could we improve our smoothies using the new to-the-market Beko Vacuum Blender? Well, we certainly gave it a try.
