Strawberries and Lemons are not the first two fruits you would consider when thinking about mixing but they play very well together in this easily made Strawberry Lemon Smoothie. A tart and fresh taste that refreshes and satisfies. If you need an afternoon pick-me-up, this is the smoothie for you!
Its also easy to turn this 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 taste of its own so adding it here won’t change the delicious results.
In your favorite blender mix:
– 1 lemon, peeled and seeded
– 1 cup fresh or frozen strawberries
– 1 cup low-fat yogurt (vanilla, banana, or strawberry)
– 1 tbsp Chia seed
