Sunshine Lemon Smoothie
Creamy, fruity citrus Sunshine Lemon Smoothie recipe is the perfect breakfast, snack, or immune-boosting drink when you’re feeling 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 y0u’re thinking – “how is that different from any other post?”
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. 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. Vitamin C never tasted so good…
