Two Blueberry Smoothie Recipes

 

Kelvin and I are coming up on one year as Arizona residents, which also comes with an insane amount of heat hitting or close to 120°F, and yes, it’s a dry heat, but it’s like walking around an oven. Even if you stay inside, the dryness can take a toll on your hydration.

This blog isn’t necessarily a health food blog, though we do our best to eat a mostly plant-based diet. I’ve come up with these two simple smoothie recipes to cool you down (cuz you’re already too cool😉), boost hydration, and incorporate some yummy ingredients that you may already have on hand, and if not, are easy to get.
