Now that the holidays are over, many of us have committed to maintaining a healthy diet (at least until Valentines Day when we are practically forced to eat chocolate). So in keeping with the New Year’s tradition of healthy eating, I have decided to share one of my favorite smoothie recipes as our first post of 2016!
This Apple Blueberry Lemon Smoothie is so easy to make and has only three ingredients. That is if you don’t count water and ice. 😉 Yup, you read that right! There is no dairy or dairy substitute in this drink.
Chopped apple, blueberries, lemon juice, water and ice are all you need to make this delicious vegan, vitamin-packed power smoothie! You can enjoy this ridiculously healthy drink for breakfast or as a snack for your Meatless Monday menu.
It’s so tasty, I caught Greg slurping up the remains of what we made for this photo shoot. He even had a craving for another round after a hard day of taking down all the Christmas lights. I don’t blame him; it is quite delicious! 🙂 But then again, that’s why it’s one of my favorites and hopefully, it will be one of yours too!
To make this Apple Blueberry Lemon Smoothie, add chopped apple, blueberries, lemon juice, cold water and ice cubes to your blender. I used my Nutri Ninja® but you can use your favorite machine. Blend until smooth, pour into your favorite glass and sip away all that holiday guilt!
Cheers to a happy and healthy 2016!
