Blueberry Lemonade Smoothie

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 it is pretty and colorful.

Now that we’re less than a month away from the official first day of summer which is on June 21, a cool smoothie may be just the perfect thing for the hot days to come.

I especially like how light it stays outside at night this time of year.

A happy first day of June to you and just think, only about 20 more days until summer starts.

But no need to wait that long to try out this smoothie.

Have a nice rest of the weekend and thank you so much for stopping by.

Let’s check out the ingredients.

Zest a lemon and set aside for a moment.

2-lemon-juice-in-blender

In a blender add the lemon juice.  I did it the old fashioned way by just squeezing the lemon when adding the juice.

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.
