Zingy lemon smoothie is the perfect smoothie for a warm day. Quick and easy to make and made with minimal ingredients, you’ll soon be cooling down with this delicious iced lemon smoothie!
Seriously folks, we’ve been having some absolutely fantastic weather here in Scotland. So much so that I’ve had to change my recipe schedule to bring you this zingy lemon smoothie earlier than I had it planned for!
Lady Lynne and I have been enjoying this lemon smoothie at the weekends and it’s been exactly what we’ve needed to cool us down.
It’s deliciously cool and creamy tasting, but still extremely light in calories at only 177 per glass.
If you’re after a breakfast smoothie then this zingy lemon smoothie definitely has enough pep to wake you up, in the morning.
However, if it’s just for a refreshing pick me up snack then again this smoothie has what it takes to give you that instant energy boost you need.
Whenever you choose to have your smoothie doesn’t matter. It’s a bright and delicious addition to your day and of course an excellent way to get a good helping of those vital vitamins and minerals.
Oh, and there was another reason I wanted to bring you this amazing zingy lemon smoothie today, not just because its appropriate for the great weather we’ve been having.
You see I also wanted to show you how my Optimum VAC2 Air Vacuum Blender handled the frozen banana that’s in this recipe.
I’ve got to confess to you folks that I’ve killed quite a few blenders in the past by burning out their motors and I’ve usually done that by trying to blitz things like ice, and nuts.
Well I need not have worried at all. Just as recommended by the company that makes them, in a split second, that blender had all that lovely banana blitzed into delicious cold iced banana helping to chill that zingy lemon smoothie exactly to the right temperature I wanted!
There has to come a time in life, in your kitchen, where you get tired of forking out at least once a year for a new blender when it’s one of the most used gadgets in your kitchen!
I no longer do that. The price of this blender has already justified itself many times over.
