This refreshing lemon slushy is made with three simple ingredients and it's so delicious! Make it for breakfast, a snack, or sneak a little something strong in it for an icy summer cocktail.
As usual, Chicago skipped spring and went from winter to summer in one week. I’m not complaining. Bring on the heat and the sunshine, because this pasty white, vitamin D deficient woman needs it! LOL!
Seriously, we went from snow one weekend to 80-degree temperatures the next. We will be getting back to real spring weather in a few days (I’m not going to complain, as long as it stays in the 60s), but in the meantime, you can find me sitting on my patio with my furry companions, my laptop, and a frosty mason jar filled with a delicious homemade lemon icy.
All you need to make this is three (excluding water and ice) simple ingredients. Some water, ice, frozen pineapple, hemp seed and a thick slice of lemon, rind and all.
Yes, that’s right, leave the lemon peel on. It adds so much flavor and it’s actually really good for you. It’s better than the actual juice! Click here to read all about it.
You can omit the hemp hearts if you want, but I wouldn’t, because they offer protein and omegas.
This easy lemon smoothie recipe is so perfect now that it’s getting warmer outside. The bright and refreshing taste of lemon, along with it’s tart bite, is an excellent summer beverage. I mean, you can’t ask for anything better than delicious and healthy.
HOW TO MAKE A FROZEN LEMON DRINK THAT'S HEALTHY
If you have a blender and you know how to use it, you can make this delicious frozen lemon ice.
First – Add the water and ice, frozen pineapple, hemp seed and lemon slice to the blender.
Second – Blend the ingredients on a high setting until it’s smooth.
Third – Pour it into a frosty glass, find a comfortable place to sit, and sip away.
Now, if it’s five-o-clock (it always is somewhere) and you’re in the mood for an adult beverage, add a little rum or vodka and blend it up. Pour it in large wine glasses and stick a slice of lemon on the rim.
