This divine smoothie is a take on the Lemon Tart smoothie from Bolt Fresh Bar on Queen Street in Toronto.
It was simply to die for – with the few tweaks I made to it.
Lemon is so uplifting that that’s reason enough to consume it. It’s also alkalizing for the body, full of vitamin C and has a major influence on liver function and detoxification.
Hemp and avocado add richness and depth, as well as healthy fats. Lucuma adds a mild maple-y flavour as well as some serious antioxidant power.
Paleos, vegans and regular folk alike will go loopy for this one.
Go organic! Makes one serving.
- Lemon flesh from half a lemon
- ½ an avocado
- 2 tsp lucuma powder
- 2-3 large medjool dates
- Scant ¼ tsp vanilla
- 1 Tbsp hemp hearts
- Juice of half a lemon
- ½ tsp lemon zest
- 1 cup coconut milk
- Pinch of Himalayan pink salt
- 1 Tbsp brown rice protein powder (or your own protein preference)
- Touch of filtered water, only if needed
Blend until smooth and lick those lemony lips. Thanks TO!
