Issue 18: May/June 2016Sonoran Skillet

In the heat of the sweltering Sonoran summers, it takes every ounce of courage to turn on the oven. Kitchen temperatures climb quickly, forcing us to crank up the swamp cooler or (if we’re lucky) the AC. If cooking over a hot stove was enjoyable and rewarding in the winter, it’s now simply a sweaty pastime to be endured.

The solution to evading the wrath of summer’s oven is a blender and a wide variety of colorful, seasonal produce. The ingredients in smoothies do more than create sweet drinks; when blended, they create beautiful colors that range from deep, wild purple to blushful peach. Playing with vibrant produce, neutralizing yogurt, and even coffee beans, we discovered that with the right ingredients and recipes, it’s possible to create a multitude of colorful smoothies that are healthy for both you and your electric bill. This summer, Edible Baja Arizona will help keep you cool with new delicious smoothie recipes.

The smoothies are made from a variety of local ingredients, in an array of colors, and with a plethora of health benefits to nourish your body and make the summer heat a bit more bearable. Tune in to EdibleBajaArizona.com for more smoothie recipes and learn how to use your summer produce in a wonderful—and cool—new way.
