Raspberry and Lemon Smoothie

Hello everyone! Today’s post is on this smoothie recipe I came up with and am obsessed with! Raspberry lemon combinations are my favorite! Anything sweet, tart or sour, I’m in! Here is what you’ll need:

  • Ice
  • Milk
  • Raspberries
  • Lemon greek yogurt
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • Honey

This is a very simple recipe, and you can tweak it to your tasting! The measurements I have here are for 1-2 servings.

  1. First, in a blender, dump 1 cup of ice cubes.
  2. Pour about 3/4 cup milk in.
  3. Put in about 1/4-1/2 cup raspberries.
  4. Next comes the lemon greek yogurt! I used (approximately) 3/4 of the cup it came in.
  5. Squeeze the juice of half a lemon in. Make sure to take out the seeds before you add the juice!
  6. Last but not least, honey. Use about a tablespoon.
  7. Blend it!
  8. Add anything you think it may need.

As you may have notice, I said “about” on a lot of the measurements. That is because smoothies are a very flexible drink and I never actually measure 1 cup of this or 3/4 of that. Really, once you get the idea of smoothie making, it becomes extremely easy to make up your own recipes. Now that I think about it, I have only used a legitimate smoothie recipe once in my life (maybe twice)! The basic idea of making a smoothie is:

  • You need something frozen. Whether its ice or the fruit is frozen, you need it in there!
  • Fruit or vegetables whose flavors go together well. This can take some experimenting!
  • Something thick like yogurt, cream, a concentrate, mango, banana, etc.
  • A juice, milk, tea, or another liquid beverage.
  • And if your fruit or veggies aren’t sweet or tart, honey. (you can use another sweetener too, but honey works best)
  • Add a fun ingredient or two if needed and have fun with it!
