LEMON LIME SMOOTHIE RECIPE
This lemon lime smoothie recipe is from one of our favorite Blender Babes, Julie Morris!

Our copy of her Superfood Smoothies cookbook is dog eared and covered with bits and pieces of ingredients from our test kitchen. :p I can assure you, this slushy like green smoothie is guaranteed to brighten your day!

Made with bok choy, this smoothie is packed full of vitamins and minerals.

The lemon lime gives this smoothie a nice fresh flavor. This is a low calorie smoothie recipe that everyone will love!

Blendtec vs Vitamix Review

You can easily make this smoothie with your power blender, such as a Vitamix or Blendtec, but if you don’t have the best blender for smoothies not to worry!

Follow these tips to get your green smoothie super smooth!

From Julie: Let the truth come out: I first made a variation of this slushie-like smoothie as one of the “healthy margaritas” I make from time-to-time (yes, I put superfoods in my cocktails . . . why not?).

Tequila-talk aside, this version still has the tart flavor of a margarita, only with more concentrated benefits. You’ll definitely want to sweeten this a bit—its citrusy, sour notes are quite prominent.

I generally use 15 drops of stevia per blender, and adding a single tablespoon of coconut sugar is a special treat.

HEALTH BENEFITS OF BOK CHOY and COCONUT WATER

Bok choy has 19 vitamins and minerals as well as fiber and omega-3 fats.

Talk about a superfood! Just one cup is loaded with vitamin K, vitamin C and vitamin A.

Many of the antioxidant nutrients in bok choy provide anti-inflammatory benefits.

Do you want picture-perfect skin? Coconut water moisturizes the skin from within if ingested orally and eliminates large amounts of oil. Coconut water aids in weight-loss efforts because it makes you feel full due to its rich nature.

Coconut water facilitates digestion and reduces blood pressure.

Feeling dehydrated? Drink more coconut water!

  1. Sounds refreshing on a hot day! I usually don’t add sweeteners to smoothies especially if they have any fruit in them.
