Lemonberry Mint Smoothie

I love lemons, strawberries and mint…so putting them all together to cool me off in this blazing heat just sounded perfect to me. Sometimes the simplest of recipes are the most satisfying. So simple and refreshing at the sametime.  Infused with fresh lemon juice, fresh steeped mint and strawberries! Your taste buds will be dancing.  I love lemon but if you are desiring a little less zing in your drink, then start out with just a couple of tablespoons of the lemon juice and add more if desired. If the only reason to make this drink is for the beautiful color, then that’s enough!

Recipe:  Serves 1  Prep time: 15 mins  Cool time: 15 mins

2 full cups frozen organic strawberries

1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice

1 1/2 cups cooled steeped mint water

2-3 tablespoons organic honey or agave

Place all the ingredients into a blender and pulse until smooth.  To steep the mint, I buy one of the small packages of fresh mint from the grocery store. A small package usually contains about 10 sprigs of mint.  Place all the mint into a small pot and pour very hot water over it to submerge the mint. Place a towel over the top and steep for 10 minutes or so. Once the mint water has cooled you can make your smoothie!
