"This not-too-tart smoothie is a refreshing snack. The sour lemon and raspberries are tamed by adding honey as a sweetener. My girls love it!"

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note
  • We like using a whole lemon, however, if the pith (white covering-it's good for you!) bothers you, you could try substituting 1/4 cup lemon juice. You would be missing the part of the lemon that helps to make this smoothie thick, but some may prefer it that way. Using frozen raspberries produces a thicker smoothie.

I took Tiina's suggestion and quartered the lemon and squeezed the heck out of them to get all the juice I could out of them instead of throwing the whole quartered lemon into the blender. I did not have vanilla yogurt, just plain Greek yogurt. I added a teaspoon of pure vanilla extract to make up for it. One of the BEST smoothies I've had in a LONG time. So very good.

I am the submitter of this recipie. I have discovered since submiting it that the best way to go is to quarter your lemon (DON'T PEEL IT), and just squeeze everything you can out of each quarter. It eliminates the pith issue. My kids love sour stuff, so this is a big hit at our house! You can add more honey or even sugar to cut the sourness of it.

This is Rachel, Maureen's daughter. I can't believe no one else has commented!!! My mother made it and I was quite surprised. It's got a mix of sweet and sour that complement each other amazingly. Even better when you try it with whipped cream. It's easy to make and a truly healthy treat, which is a rarity in the age of processed foods.
