Start your day with a MelaMania!

Posted in Caro Diario.(dear diary..), cucina, and recipes

frullato-3.jpgOne 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.

Mela Mania

7 fresh strawberries

1 banana

1/2 apple

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.

Mangia Bene, Vivi Bene
