Especially when it comes to lemon. I think it goes back to the days when my dad and I would see who could eat the most lemon wedges at restaurants.

Lemonade is my go-to drink when I’m looking for something refreshing with more flavor than water. It doesn’t matter what season we’re in, either. Lemonade is an all-season thirst quencher.

This strawberry lemonade smoothie adds a little sweetness to straight-up lemonade. By adding in your favorite protein powder, you have a wonderful thirst quenching meal replacement!

If you want to add even more flavor to this smoothie, try adding 1/4 tsp of dried basil.

To make it a little thicker, chia seeds are a great option. They also help to boost fiber and protein.

Health Benefits

Strawberry

Strawberries are packed with vitamin C. One serving contains more vitamin C than an orange. They have a unique combination of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory nutrients providing cardiovascular support and improved blood sugar regulation.

Lemon

Lemons are a moderately good source of vitamin C. They are packed with health benefits including anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, digestion, energy boost, immunity boost, mental boost, and cleanse/detox.

Banana

Bananas are high in potassium, containing over 400 mg in a single medium size banana. They also contain a good amount of vitamin C, vitamin B6, manganese, and fiber. Bananas provide some calcium, vitamin A, vitamin E, magnesium, and iron.
