There’s nothing like this sweet, tart Blueberry Lemon Zinger Smoothie to get us back on the healthy track for the New Year!
Welcome to 2017 friends!
I hope everyone had a fabulous holiday. Mine was wonderful! Tom, Casey and I went down to Charleston to spend Christmas with our oldest son Sean. The weather was beautiful, and the food was fabulous, as usual! For the most part, I unplugged from social media, did some knitting, binge watched The Crown and a few other shows on Netflix, went to the movies, snuggled under cozy blankets in front of the fire with my dog Tucker, and made AND ate more cookies than I cared to count. It was heavenly. And now…it’s back to reality.
After weeks of indulging, it’s time to put away the stretchy pants and get down to the business of eating healthy and working out. This Blueberry Lemon Zinger Smoothie is one of my favorite post-workout smoothies. It’s sweet and tart and gives me the boost of energy I need after I get my you know what kicked at the gym.
It’s loaded with blueberries, lemon juice and lemon Greek yogurt, kiwi, a frozen banana and some coconut water. I used fresh blueberries, but frozen work well too. I add one cup of coconut water, but feel free to add more or less depending on how thick you like your smoothie. I’ll let you decide.
I spent some time over the holidays planning what delicious recipes I’ll be sharing in 2017. I’ve got lots of good things in store for you guys! This Thursday I’ll be doing my first giveaway for 2017. I’m so excited! I hope you can stop back and check it out. You won’t want to miss it! Have a great first week of 2017!
