That 1,000-litre blueberry smoothie mixed Thursday in Toronto as the city struggled through a heat wave was no mirage.

In fact, it’s a new Guinness World Record.

The three hours of work put in by the Dairy Farmers of Canada was given the official blessing of Guinness judges on hand at Toronto’s waterfront.

Hundreds of people thronged the tents on Queen’s Quay West, not only to gaze at the extraordinary work but also to quench their thirst and cool down in the extreme heat.

The much publicized smoothie was free to all who wanted.

Central Canada has been struggling through a heat wave that’s seen temperatures in the mid-30s all week and humidex readings in the 40s.

John Palmer, a farmer from Woodstock, Ont., said the event was an opportunity to promote their products.

“We’re hoping that people will look at what we’re doing with the giant smoothie and go home and start making their own smoothies,” he said, noting all the ingredients used were produced by?Canadians.
