We’ve been waiting for the temperature to rise since the weird brief winter last year, and the awaited Spring came so early, I thought Summer would only be around the corner. The Sakura blossoms came and went, and my excitement for bikini season was temporarily dampened with the extra chilly rainy season of this year. Aomori wasn’t able to move on from the low 20’c through out June but it has finally jumped that hurdle to give us that summer heat we’ve been craving.
Summer can truly be wonderful. There is nothing like roasting your skin outside underneath the burning sun, losing your appetite and the will to chew your food, lying still on the kitchen floor trying not to overheat. It really is a special time of the year and it is upon us in full force. You dying yet?
Although Aomori’s heat hasn’t been too horrifying during the past couple of years, it definitely can get disgustingly hot, like now. Night sweats mean something way different in this hellish humid heat. Well, here is a delicious and healthy way to replenish the liquids dripping off your body through out the day. This is when the most handy dandy kitchen appliance that all adults should own comes to your rescue. I’m talking about that blender! Bring it on out!
Smoothies are so magical. They’re tasty, colorful, nutritious, sweet, tart, fun, convenient, fast, liquid, fantastical, cosmic, electrifying, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, and all in a cup. Here are few smoothie recipes I love, and you should try! If you have any of your own personal favorites, write them in the comment section!

Hope to God you have AC because the only way I can describe this heat to my friends back home is “You know when you open the oven door and a hot wind hits your face? It’s like that but lasts forever.”
