Blueberry Lemonade Smoothie
An easy and delicious smoothie ready in minutes that’s perfect for breakfast, a snack, or a light dessert.
Lemonade for breakfast is a good thing especially if it’s in a blueberry smoothie.
A little tart and just enough sweet along with the fresh taste of blueberries makes this smoothie as delicious it is pretty and colorful.
Now that we’re approaching summer, a cool smoothie may be just the perfect thing for the hot days to come.
Ice cold smoothies are sooo good on a hot day because they’re refreshing, hydrating and cool you off pretty quick.
I always have to be careful not to sip a smoothie too fast (which is hard to do when they taste good) or I get brain freeze.
But no need to wait until a hot day to enjoy a smoothie, they’re delicious any time of the year.
This smoothie is made with flax seeds which adds a nice subtle texture.
And the flavors of the lemon and blueberry go so well together.

A printable recipe with the measurements and instructions is located at the bottom of this post.
Here’s how to make it.
Zest a lemon and set aside for a moment.
In a blender add the lemon juice.
At first I squeezed the lemon the old fashioned way…by hand.
But then I remembered to use my handy-dandy lemon juicer.
I like to use this so I don’t have to pick out the seeds when they fall into the blender.
add the lemon zest,
grapefruit juice and ice.
Blend on the smoothie setting.
Garnish each serving with a slice of lemon (optional) or…
…2 pinches of lemon zest (for each serving).
Serve right away while it’s ice cold.
