It’s that time: sweet summer smoothies are in, and The Ultimate Refreshing Creamy Lemon Smoothie is in rotation. I’m happy to finally share one of my favorite smoothie ingredients with you.
The creamy base of this smoothie starts with Greek yogurt and almond milk. Frozen banana adds bright flavor and cools you down on a hot day. The bright acidic nature of the lemon balances out with the sweet maple syrup.

Lemon can be added to many smoothies whether it’s just for a touch of citrus or to enjoy a fully tasty lemon smoothie. This smoothie uses fresh lemon juice and a whole lemon slice to add rich flavor.
This tasty lemon smoothie can be kept in the fridge for a couple hours after you blend it up. You can save it for a quick to-go snack later in the day if you can’t drink it right away.
The addition of lemon gives a light citrus kick to most smoothies, and in this lemon-based smoothie, you can enjoy the tangy lemon flavors with yogurt and dairy-free milk options.
