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.
Note: For cocktail hour, check out our previously posted recipe for Organic Blueberry Mojitos.

A glass of freshly squeezed lemonade is one of summer’s culinary hallmarks.
Unfortunately, ordering said glass at a restaurant can send you into a sugar coma. Most lemonades are sickeningly sweet, masking the true star of the classic beverage: tart lemons.
As summer comes to a close, pick up some organic lemons at your local farmers’ market or natural/organic food store, and start squeezing. Cut the sweetener in standard recipes by 50%, and then tweak the drink to please your personal palate.
