Lemonade is the traditional summer drink and has been celebrated for years as the a good beginning effort for fledgling entrepreneurs. And lemonade also makes a great tasting smoothie as well. In this lemonade smoothie recipe, lemonade is mixed with Greek yogurt and frozen strawberries to produce a wonderfully healthy summer treat.

Its also easy to turn this summer smoothie treat into a nutrition powerhouse just by adding a tablespoon of Chia seed. Chia is a natural seed that adds a large measure of nutrition including heart healthy, cholesterol fighting omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants. Even better, unlike Flax, Chia doesn’t have a noticeable taste of its own so adding it here won’t change the delicious results.

In your favorite blender mix:

2 cups Greek vanilla low-fat yogurt
10 oz.  frozen strawberries, thawed
5 cups cold water
Instant Lemonade flavor drink (like Crystal Lite or similiar)

Put yogurt, strawberries, 1 cup of the water and the drink mix in blender and blend on medium speed for 1 minute. or until smooth. Pour mix into a large pitcher and add the remaining 4 cups of cold water.

Note: this mix stores well in the fridge to enjoy later.
