Stay Cool with a Delicious and Refreshing Lemonade Smoothie

You’ll love how refreshing and delicious it is for so little effort! All you need are a few ingredients and a blender.

This delicious smoothie came about when I started craving something tart to drink.

Since I normally drink water and rarely have soda in the house, I had to look for anything that might satisfy my craving. And there were lemons.

I knew I wanted more than just plain lemonade, so I decided to make a smoothie.

We almost always have a variety of types of yogurt on hand. We also always have bananas and coconut water.

Best Time for a Lemonade Smoothie

Any time is great for a lemonade smoothie. It’s the perfect afternoon snack, post-workout hydration, and thirst quencher on a hot day.

If you want to take a break and relax with this refreshing drink, also pour yourself a bowl of some buttery popcorn (without a drop of butter, I promise) or some delicious Chex party mix.

Since I mentioned party mix, lemonade smoothies are also a great party drink that both kids and adults will enjoy.

Next time you have a backyard get-together with friends and family, serve these. Just make sure you have enough for seconds and maybe even thirds.

What Are the Benefits of Lemons?

Not only are lemons delicious, but they are also extremely nutritious.

In addition to having quite a bit of vitamin C, they’re high in fiber if you add some of the pulp when you squeeze them for this lemonade smoothie.

Lemons also help your body absorb iron, so if you’re anemic, it’s good to consume them.

Finally, most fruits are loaded with antioxidants, and lemons are right up there with the best of them.

According to Medical News Today, lemons help reduce your risk of having a stroke and assist in maintaining a healthy blood pressure.

They’re also good for your complexion because the vitamin C that they contain promotes the formation of collagen.

Why Use Coconut Water in a Lemonade Smoothie?

Coconut water contains quite a few essential nutrients that promote good health. Some of these include vitamin C, magnesium, manganese, potassium, and calcium.

It also provides some antioxidant benefits. One of the main reasons you want to consume antioxidants is to help prevent cancer and other diseases.

Coconut water also helps the circulation system. In addition to aiding in controlling blood pressure it may also assist in preventing blood clots.

Something I appreciate is that coconut water has a hint of sweetness. Because of this, you can add a smaller amount of sweetener without compromising the flavor.

Finally, coconut water contains electrolytes that are essential after an intense workout.

The potassium, magnesium, sodium, and calcium provide the proper fluid balance you need to maintain your health.

How to Make a Lemonade Smoothie

In a blender, pour the juice of one large lemon. Next, add some Greek yogurt, 1 medium-size banana, a cup of coconut water, some crushed ice and some stevia.

Blend on high until it is smooth. Pour into two medium-tall glasses and garnish with red or purple berries.

Lemonade Smoothie Variations

You can vary some of the ingredients if you like. For example, you can add a couple of strawberries to the blender to turn it into pink lemonade.

Another idea is to add pineapple for a stronger fruity and less lemony flavor. You can also use honey or sugar instead of stevia.

Deliciously Nutritious Drink

Perhaps the best aspect of these lemonade smoothies is that they are both nutritious and delicious. Because of this, your children will gladly drink something that is good for them.
