Apple and Mint Limeade Smoothie

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

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.
