Bust out that blender!  These drinks are here to cool you off this summer and are blended up in the grand ol’ time of TWO minutes. Are you having a great summer so far?  I don’t even want to say it, but it already feels like it’s dwindling right before my eyes.  I’m in the Big Apple this week with my family to catch a Yankee game and soak up some of the city.  Excessive sweating is definitely taking place and I need one of these drinks.

Get your caffeine fix with the blended coffee drinks, or be a healthy hero and whip up one of my smoothie recipes.  There are also plenty of blended slushy drinks for kids – even the alcoholic beverages can be done without the alcohol.  Enjoy!
