Lemon Drop Green Smoothie
Difficulty 5 minutes Serves 2 glasses - about 16oz
This lemon drop smoothie by Christine Roseberry of Just Glowing With Health has the perfect amount of sweetness with a dash of lip puckering lemon that will make you think of a lemon drop. The key to this green smoothie recipe is that the Meyer lemon is juicy, ripe and sweet. After-all, the recipe is ALL about that sweet tart and refreshing flavor of lemon. Enjoy!
2 large bananas
2 kale (Dinosaur) leaves, stems removed
1 1/2 cup frozen mango
1 quarter size chunk ginger
1 Tbsp organic Meyer lemon juice (about 1/2 of a small lemon)
1 thick slice lemon
1/3 cup coconut water (more or less for desired consistency)
Directions 1. Blend above ingredients (except slice of lemon) on high in blender until smooth.
2. Pour into a glass adding the lemon slice. (I like to take a fork and break up the slice gently stirring it to mix it in well. But if you prefer you can leave the slice in the smoothie to let the flavor soak in as is.)
