There’s a little tart and just enough sweet in this blueberry lemonade smoothie that’s ready in minutes and is perfect for breakfast, a snack, or a light dessert.

Blueberry Lemonade Smoothie

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 as it is pretty.

A cool smoothie is just the thing for a hot summer day.

An ice-cold smoothie is refreshing, hydrating and can cool you off pretty quick.

I always have to be careful though not to sip a smoothie too fast (which is hard to do when they taste good) or I get brain freeze.

Even though this smoothie is served ice cold, there’s no need to wait until a hot day to enjoy it because blueberries and lemonade taste wonderful together any time of the year.

About the Ingredients

This smoothie is made with flax seeds which adds an interesting subtle texture.

It’s sweetened with honey which is a nice complement to the lemon and blueberries.

The liquid used is grapefruit juice and along with Greek yogurt, this smoothie isn’t overly sweet.

About the Order of Ingredients

A rule of thumb is that liquids and soft ingredients go in first, and the harder ingredients go in last.

So, for example to the blender jar,

  • First, add liquids such as juice, water or milk
  • Second, add soft ingredients like yogurt, fresh (unfrozen) cut fruit and berries, or honey
  • Then add items such as frozen cut fruit and berries, vegetables or nuts
  • Lastly add the ice

When blending a smoothie, to avoid an air pocket from forming by the blade in the blender jar, there needs to be a good balance between the liquid and frozen ingredients (including ice).

Let’s check out the ingredients.

At first, I squeezed the lemon the old-fashioned way…by hand.

But then I remembered to use a lemon juicer.

I like to use this juicer so that lemon seeds don’t fall in the blender.
