Personally, I wouldn’t suggest it. Without the yogurt, you’re in reality going to be left with a mixed lemonade 🙂 The yogurt is what provides the smoothie physique and makes it filling.

WHAT IF I CAN’T FIND FRESH GINGER FOR THIS LEMON SMOOTHIE?

While the taste won’t be fairly as vibrant and recent with out recent ginger, flooring dry ginger will be utilized in vicinity of recent ginger on this recipe. 1/4 teaspoon flooring ginger will do the trick.

This is one among my favourite tips to get extra veggies into my diet! I’m prepared so as to feature a handful spinach to pretty much any type of smoothie I make, and I’ve additional spinach to this lemon smoothie fairly often. Of course, the smoothie will grow to be a vibrant inexperienced color, but personally, I don’t discover that the style adjustments all that much. The vibrant flavors of the lemon and the ginger hide up the spinach flavor, in my opinion.

CAN I MAKE ONE SERVING OF THIS SMOOTHIE?
