A low carb lemon smoothie is delicious and nutritious. Full of bright, sweet flavors, yet sugar free, this smoothie can be enjoyed as a mid-day snack or even a quick breakfast...and kids will love it!
- 1/2-1 cup cashew milk (depending on how thin or thick you want it
- 1 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
- 2 Tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 3 Tablespoons THM Gentle Sweet
- pinch of mineral salt
- pinch of turmeric
- splash of vanilla extract
- Mix everything in your blender.
Use less or more cashew milk (or almond milk) for a thin or thick consistency of your smoothie.
This makes around 2 cups.
Turmeric gives the smoothie a yellowish look, but does not change the flavor with just a pinch.
