Ok so is it hot enough for you? In my area we are getting between 96 to 107 degrees. I am inland and not that close to a beach. Boy do I miss having the Boardwalk at my backdoor, back home.
We use to have one of those backyard pools you get at Costco, but it takes a lot to keep that up. So how have I been keeping cool in these hot days of summer you ask?
Smoothies and lots of healthy drinks. Ok on a Friday some are alcoholic, a girls got to relax sometimes right, lol.
Here are some of my favorites recipes:
Blackberry Juice Drink
Fresh blackberries ( preferably organic)
Simple syrup (sugar water) or agave sweeter
1/2 Teaspoon Ginger
I like the kick
Strawberry Delight ( Son's best friend creation)
2 tablespoon of lemonade drink powder
half of papaya cubed
I ripe mango
pineapple juice and ice
you can also use coconut water if you like.
Lean Green Machine
1/2 quart Pineapple juice
half bag of spinach
1 tsp of Spiralina ( green algae powder)
lots of ice
enjoy and stay cool!
