One of my stops this summer, while in Italy, was a fashionable coffee bar in the EUR neighborhood of Rome, and today my memory was there because I began my day with the healthy non-alcoholic aperitif or ‘frullati’ that I discovered there. This is known as a Mela Mania (Mela means apple in Italian).
Have this delicious beverage to start the day or a light lunch or an aperitif in the afternoon.
7 fresh strawberries
1 cup apple juice unsweetened
1 tsp cinnamon
6 ounces plain low fat or nonfat yogurt
Place 5 strawberries, banana, apple in blender, when smooth, add in apple juice, cinnamon nd yogurt. Blend till smooth and pour in 2 glasses.Decorate with a strawberry placed on side of glass.
