Summer Smoothies for Breakfast

These days, it’s ridiculously hot. In fact, today has got to be some sort of record, what with 35 degrees Celsius already at 10am. We hit about 39C in the afternoon. So the heat wakes me up every morning, way too early for my taste. But I get up and proceed to make my morning smoothie and iced coffee.

Recently, I received some huge nectarines, also peaches and blueberries. So I’m lucky to have some variation each morning. Sometimes I use yogurt, sometimes coconut milk, but I always use a banana, orange juice, lemon juice and a splash of apple cider vinegar. The latter two ingredients help wake me up and I believe they have some good health benefits as well. In any case, the morning smoothie (and my iced coffee) provides a nice energy boost during these hot summer weeks…
