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.

Zingy Lemon Smoothie Recipe

It’s always best if you can make your own smoothie as opposed to buying them. You see that way you’re guaranteed a fresh smoothie and one that’s not high in sugar or full of any other artifical ingredients either!

  1. Ok, that’s it. I’m coming to Scotland! Between the promises of good weather and now this lemon smoothie, I’m not sure I can hold out much longer. (On a serious note, we are starting to talk about an Edinburgh trip next summer.) This warm summer days are perfect for lemon, and I feel like I can already taste this lemon smoothie. Maybe it’ll have to happen this weekend…I’ll need some lemon Greek yogurt. I do have vanilla in the fridge though, so maybe a lemon-vanilla variation? Either way, this looks delicious, Neil. I hope you have a great weekend, and I can’t wait to read about the trip next week!

      I can’t guarantee you good weather for next year David, unfortunately. But, I can certainly promise you that you would have a fantastic time in Edinburgh (can’t remember if you’ve already been there) and I’d love to meet up if you do come over! 😀

      This Zingy Lemon Smoothie as a lemon-vanilla variation sounds like it could be a go! And who knows maybe you’ll have invented your own version of the smoothie then too? Enjoy the weekend!

  2. Swap Lime for Lemon and I AM IN!! 😉

  3. I have to admit that I’m not a smoothie person, however, this is the smoothie recipe that could convert me. I love the idea of a lemon smoothie!

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      Thanks Jeff. If I make a smoothie it has to be a really good one, so I’m glad that you’re a fan of this one!

  4. I love lemons more than anything in the world. And the fact that this smoothie has full six tablespoons in it, is pushing me to break out that blender! 😉

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      I always start the day in some way with lemons. It’s either a lemon cut in half and put in my green tea or a lemon smoothie. I’m glad you’re a lemon fan too! 😀

  5. What an awesome idea. I must say I’ve never tried a smoothie with that much lemon, but it sounds really refreshing.

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      Thanks Frank. That much lemon definitely means it’s earned the “Zingy” part of it’s name! 😉

  6. I absolutely love lemons, they are such vibrant fruit and you can create really great recipes with them. This zingy lemon smoothie sounds so refreshing and delicious. And so easy to make too. What an amazing breakfast this would make.

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      I’m glad you like this smoothie Ashika. Thanks for your kind comments! Yes, this is great as a smoothie and on a hot day here, like today it makes for a fantastic cool drink.

  7. Ben|Havocinthekitchen says:

    I do love the lemon flavors, and I like everything about this smoothie. 1) The addition of greek yogurt won’t make me hungry for a while 2) It’s refreshing 3) but banana and honey balance the flavor. Thus, you’ve created just a perfect smoothie, Neil! 🙂

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      Awesome, I’m really glad you like it Ben. Thanks for your kind comments. This smoothie is rapidly becoming one of my favourites! 😀

  8. I’ve never had lemon in a smoothie before but it sounds fab 🙂

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      Thanks Cathy, I think the lemon just adds an amazing element of freshness. Can’t wait to make more smoothies with lemon in! 😀

  9. Mmm, love the idea of a lemon smoothie. A great way to wake up on the morning and good for all this hot weather too.

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      Thanks Choclette. Yes, nice and refreshing for all this excellent weather we’re having. Agreed! 😀
