It is so damn hot here that we’ve contemplated farming naked. Seriously.
The weather forecast doesn’t look promising. I cried after seeing there is a possibility of triple digits in the next few days. I even threatened Taylor that I was quitting the farm life so I could work in an office with air conditioning. Extreme heat, paired with a jam-packed harvest and seeding schedule is a toxic combination.
This smoothie recipe is the only positive thing I have to share with you today. You can blame the heat stroke! This tasty treat is refreshing and in our case-a true life savor.
We traded veggies at the farmers market for a ton of organic blueberries. They are so stinking good that we’ve eaten most of them straight out of pints. However, I knew I wanted to freeze a few to toss into a smoothie and this recipe is a new favorite. Don’t let the addition of fresh thyme scare you. I’ve been a huge fan of throwing fresh herbs into sweet things recently and this flavor combination works really well.
If you’re suffering from heat exhaustion I’ve got the perfect remedy. Grab a straw and enjoy this refreshing treat. Cheers.
