Strawberry Lemon Green Smoothie

As we are in the end throws of winter, don’t forget about your greens! It’s easy to get caught up in the root veggies during the freezing cold, but we are still doing green smoothies here.

Greens offer you so many vitamins and minerals, we have them in some form daily.

I typically like to be creative with my smoothies but I’m in a rut, a good rut, but I have a favorite smoothie right now. The tartness of a strawberry lemon smoothie just seems to be what my body is craving. It’s yummy too. My kids enjoy it, they say it tastes like strawberry lemonade. (Their smoothie is much sweeter than mine though!)

Lemons are full of vitamin C, which is great for the adrenals and to help keep the colds and flu away. It is also a gentle liver cleanser, which we all need.

I also love it because it still falls under Fuel Pull for Trim Healthy Mama! It makes a great snack or a quick breakfast. Adding greek yogurt ups the protein, gives you some good bacteria for your gut and makes it more filling.

As far as sweeteners, stevia works well with this. If you are making it for the kids, I like to use raw honey for them.

I also LOVE this (affiliate link) pint sized mason jars with lids and straws for my kids. The keep the mess in and the straws are wide enough to get clean.

And if you really want to treat yourself, buy a set of (affiliate linkstainless steal straws. They make every sip so nice and cold.

If you are a big smoothie fan, I have a Pinterest board devoted just to smoothies. (Note: not all are THM) However, if you are looking for THM recipes, I have a board just for that too! (I’m a bit addicted to Pinterst.)

    I notice there isn’t a picture of the actual smoothie…and I bet I know what happened. You were so excited, you drank it all and forgot to photograph it. Right? :-) Happens to me all the time.
    Thank you for linking at Trim Healthy Tuesday! :-)

    Looks amazing, and I have all the ingredients. What can I sub for the yogurt? I have a dairy allergy. I have a yogurt that I use, So Delicious, but I believe someone on FB said it is not on plan because of the organic cane syrup. Is tofu on plan? Could I use that?? thanks so much.

      You can leave it out too. :) I make it all the time with out, but for more filling, I like the greek yogurt. You could try a lower fat cottage cheese. Maybe I’ll try that and let you know. I don’t think tofu is on plan, they talk against soy. Are you just starting THM?

        Yes I am about 4 wks into plan, and I’m still working on learning S and E foods and how not to combine them. I have already been doing a whole foods diet so I thought this would be easy to follow. Working with all the new flours has been fun! I normally buy 100% organic whole wheat, but will just use it for the family meals.

      Greek yogurt falls under the fuel pull category, so you can use it with anything. You just need to watch your carbs and your fats to see if you move into S with lots of fat or E with lots of carbs. The strawberries are kept to a cup here so you are just fine as a fuel pull with the yogurt. :)

    I love the addition of greek yogurt to this recipe! I’m a huge fan of smoothies, but I haven’t tried this combo before. Thanks for sharing! :)
