Sunshine Lemon Smoothie
Creamy, fruity citrus Sunshine Lemon Smoothie recipe is the perfect breakfast, snack, or immune-boosting drink when you’re feeling sick or under the weather!
I’m really bad at doing two things at once. For instance, as I’m writing this I am watching an episode of Big Bang Theory and I can barely form a complete sentence or spell my words correctly right now. So forgive me if this post is short and random or just doesn’t make sense at all. I know what you’re thinking – “how is that different from any other post?” Let us move on to this Sunshine Lemon Smoothie.
I figured this is a good week to post this “sunshine” smoothie since I am headed down to the “sunshine” state later this week (even though it seems to rain more there lately than it does here in Rochester). I am very excited to attend my 2nd food blogger conference called the “Food and Wine Conference” in Orlando. Of course I can’t visit Orlando without sneaking in a day at Disney World (obsessed).
This smoothie is suitable for any time of the day, but I like it best in the morning as sort of a pick-me-up. If you’re feeling sick, this is the drink you need to give your body for a little boost toward recovery. I also have my Vitamin C Booster Smoothie that is great for when you’re sick. The ginger and the citrus are your best friends when feeling under the weather and this is great for spring and summer since it’s a cold drink. Hot tea with honey in the summer? BIG no for me.
This Sunshine Lemon Smoothie also is incredibly pretty to look at – how can you not want to try a smoothie with the word “sunshine” in it? I really am in a very “yellow” mood lately as I said in my post about my bright yellow Tieks. I gave this smoothie it’s name because it tastes like sunshine…duh. I’m also loving this Kale Pineapple Smoothie from my friend Aysegul. Vitamin C never tasted so good…
