Green Strawberry Lemonade Smoothie

With summer heat reaching record temps here in the Midwest, one of our favorite beverages in this "green house" is lemonade. A few summers ago, we got creative with lemonade and decided to add it to a smoothie. The result? A delicious, cool summer treat. Since I am a green smoothie fan, I of course, added spinach. But Brandon still loves to keep his green-free. ( : You can make whatever variation you want with this strawberry lemonade treat.

Here's what you'll need:
  • 1/2 cup lemonade (we like Simply Lemonade)
  • 2 Tbs. lemon juice
  • 1-2 cups of spinach
  • 1 Tbs. chia seeds (optional for more nutritional punch)
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 4 frozen strawberries
Simply blend, sip and then enjoy the green lemonade smoothie goodness.

Hope this smoothie helps you cool off from the heat!
