summer berry smoothie

“I walked outside and felt like I was swimming,” is what Jack said the other day as I picked him up from the airport, fresh off a flight from LA.

It’s humid here, to say the least, and the air is thick. It’s the kind of heat that sort of takes your breath away as soon as you walk out the door But I’m not complaining, it always takes just a few weeks for the body to acclimate to our summer temps. Hydration is the key. Eight glasses of water (don’t know who recommended that) is just not enough.

I originally made this for Jack… he’s the smoothie guy no matter what temperature it is outside. But I’ve been waking up extra parched lately so this fruity goodness has really been hitting the spot.

    I love the addition of the basil! That sounds awesome! Oh and I remember summers in Ohio. So dang humid, it is not anything like that here in CO.
    Believe it or not, I actually miss the humidity a little. It just reminds me of summers as a kid!
