Welcome to Smoothie Monday! Today’s smoothie really just blew my mind. I had the idea of the smoothie, but wasn’t sure how it would taste. So I did some experimenting and oh my gosh I created an amazing, healthy, refreshing smoothie that just makes me smile!! This my Friends is my Lemon Meringue Smoothie.
This smoothie is creamy, sweet, with a hint of coconut and a hint of lemon. It is truly a good morning smoothie that will make you smile and start your day off right!!
The smoothie is made with fresh lemon juice, coconut extract, greek yogurt and non-fat milk. Blend it away for pure creaminess. The smoothie is not at all sour or bitter!! I honestly was a little afraid of that happening. It has 20 grams of protein and only 17 carbs. The recipe makes for 2 cups!! I think this is the perfect on the go breakfast!!
- Serves: 2 cups
- Serving size: The Whole Recipe
- ½ cup greek yogurt, plain
- 2 tbsp. lemon juice
- 1 cup non-fat milk
- ¼ tsp. coconut extract
- ¼ tsp. stevia to taste
- 1 cup of ice
- In a blender add all the ingredients and process until smooth.
In California lemons are totally in season and nothing like using fresh lemons in a recipe. I have to admit, I have been on a little lemon kick lately. I just love how refreshing and healthy they are for you!
Time to go, lots more blogging to do!
Have a fantastic week! Remember to do something that will make you smile to today and in return make someone else smile!
