The Retox is an amazing blended smoothie combining coffee, banana and ice cream that is sure to kick start the day. Surprisingly, the three simple ingredients mix in really well where with the increasing hot weather it is a perfect alternative to the usual hot coffee.

It's sometimes hard to order a coffee on a really hot day but you do it anyway as you still want that coffee kick. It seemed like a strange drinks item and I'm not really sure how popular it would be however it was one of those choices you make where the risk pays off. The Retox is a cleverly named, almost mocktail of an espresso martini, where the smoothie aspect means it's satisfyingly filling and gives you the coffee kick us Melbournians require.

Obviously it is a drink that will appeal to those that may have had a few drinks the night before and want to "Retoxify" themselves but it was such a nice drink that I could "Retoxify" myself on a daily basis. This is probably the first breakfast smoothie that has been truly appealing to me and is a must try.

Palate is a great little place on Greville St and is the perfect setting to chill out and enjoy the good weather, some good company and quench that coffee thirst with The Retox smoothie.
