My sister has been telling me about this smoothie recipe she saw in
an article in Shape magazine, and we finally got around to making it last night
Its so simple and so good!
It is definitely a pick me up and if you are a fan of lemons,
well you just might love it!
Now for some reason I can't find the recipe on the web site and she has since misplaced the article
so Im just going to show you how we made it. Im pretty sure its the same thing
but possibly a hint or two off. But hey it tastes amazing either way :)
I used the bullet for this smoothie but a blender will work just as well.
Sidenote: If you have never tried the bullet you most definitely should! I use it for almost everything, there is barely anything to clean up, and you can drink out of the cup you mixed it in. And it is small so you don;t have to worry about storage. Ok enough of that.
-fresh mint leaves
-1 can guava nectar
(you can get the nectar at any grocery store, 1 can was $.44 @ jewel)
First slice the lemon into four, that way you can squeeze out as much juice as possible. And then squeeze the lemon into your cup/blender. Make sure to use some sort of strainer so the seeds don't get in your smoothie.
Then you want to add about a little over a cup of ice.
And then add about 3/4 can of the guava nectar
Next you will add about 4 fresh mint leaves. If you want it more minty, then by all means add more!
Then blend your beautiful drink together and you've got your self a little minty fresh yet zesty lemony wake me up kind of smoothie. Pretty sweet.
