In the summer, I practically live on smoothies. On especially hot days, I don’t even bother with niceties such as a straw. I just chug-a-lug it for an immediate cool-down. I like to freeze the fruit I’m using so I don’t have to use ice cubes but it’s still nice and cold.
One thing about blueberries though – always make sure to brush or at least check your teeth before leaving the house. It’s not a pretty sight to be talking to someone with blueberries specks all over your mouth.
