Raspberry Lemon Smoothie

raspsmoothie1raspsmoothie2


I love a nutritious smoothie on a warm Spring Day! This refreshing smoothie can satisfy that craving for a sweet and tart lemonade on a hot day. It even includes spinach, a great way to sneak in those greens without tasting them. Rely on orange juice and oranges for your dose Vitamin C? In addition to spinach providing Vitamin C, both raspberries and lemons are an excellent source of Vitamin C!

I’ve been using this organic plain Dutch yogurt I get a Natural Market near where I live. It’s fresh from a local farm and is so creamy and good! A large container of it is only $2.99. Can’t beat that!
