Summer in the City. Breakfast Smoothies with Fresh Fruit and Greek Yoghurt.


Its December First.  Hello Summer.  Another hot, humid, sticky day. We woke to a summer rain storm. Today’s headline in the Sydney Morning Herald reads “Summer in the City…and its Hot, Hot, Hot”.  Somehow I don’t think its going to cool down any time soon. Remember  Nat King Cole’s song Those Lazy-Hazy-Crazy Days Of Summer? Methinks those days have well and truly arrived.

Usually I begin my morning routine with a hot, frothy cappuccino. Not today. I need something smooth and cooling. A fresh fruit smoothie hits the spot.  So simple to whip up and perfectly refreshing.
