Ellie’s Lemon Lime Smoothie Recipe

Want a different smoothie combination that strays from the tradition berry smoothie that might give you a little pucker?  Try Ellie’s Lemon Lime Smoothie!

Lemon and Lime Smoothie

Our Ellie girl used to love smoothies.  Since we’ve been going crazy making them all of the time, she has become a bit less excited about them, so we asked her to come up with something.

Ellie's Lemon Lime Smoothie

Ellie has a sour-tooth.  Her favorite food is grapefruit, and she has a weakness for all things citrus, especially lemons and limes.  Thus, this creation was born!  Needless to say, she loved it!  The rest of the family liked it, too, but this one’s probably Ellie’s favorite! 

Ellie's Lemon Lime Smoothie with a Twist

If this lemon lime smoothie ends up being too sour for you, just add another banana or two, or some more apples.  That’s what I’ve done for the rest of the family, and it still had plenty of pucker for us.
