This refreshing ice cold smoothie tastes like limeade and is perfect for a hot summer day.  

Apple and Mint Limeade Smoothie in glass

This smoothie is slightly lighter in color and texture than some green smoothies.

It tastes wonderfully tart, similar to limeade.

The zest of a lime is the star of the show in this tasty drink.

And the fresh mint is the co-star.

Although this smoothie has spinach in it, you wouldn’t know it by the taste, and it adds a nice light green color to the drink.

I have to admit that I slipped in a little sugar in this recipe.

It just seemed like the right thing to do since lime was involved and it adds a bit of sweet that emphasizes the tart flavor of the green apple and lime.

But feel free to leave out the sugar if you like.
