Breakfast at Wimbledon

Breakfast at Wimbledon has been a tradition since I was a kid.

We were a tennis  family. My sister and I both played high school tennis. I played tennis in college. As a family we would play doubles. My parents would play tennis together when they were first married after watching John McEnroe and Jimmy Conners matches.

When we were kids, we would get up early on the weekends during the summers and watch all the Women's and Men's Singles Tennis action. And my mom would get strawberries and cream so we could pretend like we were there.  And even as an adult I've carried on this tradition. My husband even laughs at me as I watch games and yell at the TV. But he's on board because of the strawberries and cream. I thought this year I would use something a little healthier than heavy cream.

But even after that the tradition will live on...

Strawberries and (Healthier) Cream
1 lb whole strawberries
1 cup 0% Greek Yogurt
Juice of 2 lemons
3 tbsp sugar

Whisk all ingredients together in a bowl and pour over whole strawberries. It will give you the energy you need to yell "Go Roddick!"


  1. Man I miss playing tennis! I need to brush up on my game ;).

    This fresh and simplistic breakfast sounds absolutely delicious - I love that you used Greek yogurt instead of heavy cream. Yum!

  2. I love this recipe with the Greek yogurt! What a great alternative.
