Beat The Heat With a Frozen Treat

 

 It is supposed to be 97 degrees in Tucson today! I haven’t decided if this is good or bad news yet, but I do know that with heat like this I am going to need a fruit smoothie. Although I love Jamba Juice and Xoom Juice for an afternoon treat, these options can get a little expensive. So here is collection of great smoothie recipes you can make from your very own kitchen.
