With the heat upon us (a little more so for us in Arizona…), it’s time to put the oven in hibernation and call upon the blender. I bet you didn’t realize how easy it is to make super simple, delicious, ultra-healthy cuisine in your blender and keep you cool all at the same time. One of my favs is this chilled, refreshing blender soup.

Are you certain that two stalks of celery are needed in this recipe? I would think that two ribs would be ample in proportion to the rest of the ingredients. The difference between a rib and a stalk is that the stalk is the entire bunch of celery and the rib is the individual piece of celery. Many ribs comprise the stalk.
Frieda, so sorry for the error. You are correct!
