When it's this hot outside, light meals are a must — and that starts at breakfast. These days we find ourselves swapping out our usual bowls of oatmeal and hefty breakfast sandwiches for a morning meal that's a big fresher and more suited to the season. These 10 breakfast recipes are exactly what we want to wake up to all summer long.

1. Strawberry Smoothie

This classic smoothie calls for just three ingredients: strawberries, a frozen banana, a Greek yogurt. It's completely uncomplicated and completely satisfying.

3. Soft & Chewy Granola

This unique granola ditches the rolled oats and opts for lots of nuts and seeds instead. Make a big batch and enjoy it with yogurt and the season's best fruit all summer long.

4. Farmers Market Frittata

This is more of a formula than a recipe: Pick up whatever looks best at the farmers market, add a bit of creamy goat cheese, and you've got a colorful frittata that feeds the family.

5. Summer Breakfast Salad

If salad for breakfast seems odd, let this recipe convince you otherwise. It's a light salad, but protein-rich eggs, bacon, and quinoa ensure this bowl has plenty of staying power.

6. Frozen Grape & Granola Yogurt Bark

This yogurt bark will keep well in the freezer for up to two months, although it will probably get eaten up well before then since it's so cool and creamy.

7. Mediterranean Breakfast Pitas

To get a jump-start on these very portable breakfast sandwiches, boil the eggs at the start of the week. Then it's just a matter of quick assembly!

8. Peach Lassi

While mango is the most classic fruit used in a lassi, an Indian yogurt-based drink, opting for juicy peaches is a more in-season approach.

9. Yogurt Breakfast Popsicles

These cool breakfast pops come together easily, thanks to Greek yogurt, fresh berries, and store-bought granola. If you don't have berries in the fridge, you can definitely swap in your favorite jam.
