A simple tropical breakfast is exactly what I needed after the past few days of high-fat, high-sugar, birthday related eatingâ€¦ It was extremely wet on Sunday morning and I opted to have a simple fruit platter and some hot chocolate with broas for breakfast. The fruit platter included some early seasonal mangosteen that werenâ€™t in top form but the flavor is so unique and I rarely eat them fresh so they did just fine. Several incredibly sweet rambutan which are in season, half a humongous Cebu mango that was perfectly ripe and a small banana rounded out my fruit plate. Iâ€™m sure if you are sitting in Ireland, France, Canada, Japan or elsewhere in the temperate world you will appreciate this selection of local fruitsâ€¦
After the fruit, I had a nice cup of hot chocolate and what better to dip in the hot chocolate than fresh broas from Bohol?! Yum. It must be a childhood thing but I do love dipping the crisp broas into the hot chocolate just long enough to get the taste of hot chocolate but not get the broas too soggyâ€¦ itâ€™s a very quick dip. I can easily eat a dozen broas on their own so to limit my intake I put just six on my breakfast plate and placed that beside my steaming cup of hot chocolate. I ran out of broas before I even consumed 1/4th of the cup but thatâ€™s how it always ends up, no matter how many broas I put out!
