Today’s dish is a very quick recipe. Going through my Visual Archive, I have realised that I do not have many breakfast recipes on the blog. I guess the main reason is because Italians are not big on breakfast. In fact, we mostly have coffee (or cappuccino) and a croissant or cookies. I personally just have a cup of tea… I am not used to eating early in the morning, and I seldom do. Holidays are an exception to the rule for me. Whenever we travel, I like to treat myself to a nice breakfast. I particularly liked the breakfast food we used to eat in Tahiti and I have already recreated a couple of dishes from that delicious spread: Pineapple and Passion fruit Jam and Firi Firi. There was another cute little dish that I always had as part of my daily breakfast in Bora Bora: it was called verrine fraîcheur, a little refreshing shooter. The concept is very simple: some local jam and Greek yogurt, served cold. It tastes just like dessert, but it is breakfast… and it is very light. I recreated it and added some fresh passion fruit pulp and cornflakes for a little crunch and while eating, for a moment, I thought I was back in Bora Bora. It is a very easy, healthy and delicious breakfast idea! Enjoy!
