Fresh Fruit Batidos | www.tasteandtellblog.com

What do you do when the temperature outside is pushing 100F and your air conditioning still doesn’t work? You definitely don’t make anything that requires the oven!!

I’ll admit – this isn’t a recipe I would have chosen for a Cookbook of the Month post normally. But there was no way I was making anything that would heat the house up even more. We’ve been surviving on sandwiches and cereal. But I’m glad that I was forced to find a recipe that would cool me down, because this was absolutely delicious and refreshing. I would totally make this again, and I’m imagining lots of other fruits and fruit combinations would work just as well!

    Oh gosh, I hope your AC gets to working soon! I love cereal, but can't do without turning on the stove to make pancakes :). I can always count on FN for a tasty recipe, this sounds delicious.

    I'd never heard of batidos before. These sound absolutely delicious! I've obviously been missing out.

    And so sorry about your air conditioning. Wish you could send some of that heat here. Cold and rainy in London–bah! K x

    Funny I used to work with a band names Batidos but I never knew what was in the actual drink

    Sounds like something I could have used last week when the temps were near the hundreds. Today, not so hot. But that will probably change so I'll be needing this in the next few weeks I'm sure!

    100 degrees? Ugh! Definitely not the time to turn on the oven. It's the time to hover in the frozen foods aisle at the grocery store, taking your time choosing which sorbet to buy for this beautiful dessert.

    Hope your AC gets fixed soon!
