Limeade and blueberry nectar

Fall may have arrived, but we’re going to endure triple-digit temperatures in  Southern California next week. 

While water is the best way to stay hydrated, blueberry juice provides a special antioxidant-rich treat. 

Today’s recipe adds a blueberry twist to traditional limeade. All of the ingredients should be available at a well-stocked natural and organic food store.
