Sometimes, the thought of making yourself breakfast seems like an impossible task. When the weather is too hot to even move, let alone think, making breakfast can be extra challenging. What will you make that won’t weigh you down or make you feel warmer? Smoothies are great options, as they are both cooling and filling, but you have to change up the recipes so as not to bore your taste buds.
