My poor George Foreman Mix and Go has been in hibernation over the past few months as it hasn’t really been smoothie weather (we’ve just come out of winter for my overseas readers!). With a few sunny days raring their head over the past few weeks I have been feeling like smoothies and lemons so I decided to create a refreshing lemon smoothie.
I wanted to create a lemon smoothie with ingredients that you are likely to have in your pantry or that if you purchase you will actually use again. I also wanted to create a lemon smoothie that didn’t have a really long ingredient list as that really puts me off a recipe as it always seems hard, even if it really isn’t.
The good news is that this lemon smoothie is super easy to make, you literally throw all the ingredients into your George Foreman Mix and Go or blender, blend for a few seconds and then drink!
It’s nice to have a refreshingly tart lemon smoothie in amongst all the super sweet tasting ones. While I love a chocolate peanut butter protein smoothie when it’s nice and warm it’s really nice to have a refreshing smoothie.
As a bonus lemons have a whole host of awesome benefits for your body such as being rich in vitamin C and being alkalising for your body which assists in restoring your bodies ph levels. Your liver and bowels also love lemons as they help with the detoxification process in your body.
So really this healthy lemon smoothie is a must try 😉
- 3 Large Teaspoons Lemon Juice
- 2 Tablespoons Plain Greek Yoghurt
- 1 Cup Milk
- ½ Cup Ice
- 1 Teaspoon Honey
- Add all ingredients to your blender or mix and go (I use the George Foreman Mix and Go), in the order listed.
- Blitz or Blend until the ice is fully crushed.
- Pour into a cool glass and enjoy :)
If you use sweetened greek yoghurt you may not need to add the honey.
If you're using milk powder I added the equivalent of a serving of protein powder (I used our protein powder scoop).
Would you prefer a lemon smoothie or a chocolate smoothie when it’s super hot?
