The Lemon Poppy Seed smoothie was a fresh idea I had this weekend after having a “Chocolate Cake Shake” from a local restaurant. The Chocolate Cake Shake is simple: it’s just a slice of frosted cake blended into a milk shake. I started to think about using my favorite dessert: lemon poppy seed muffins. As you can imagine this isn’t the healthiest of ideas, so I went for a smoothie option, which allows for lighter ingredients.
– 1 cup of ice, crushed
– 8 ounces of lemon yogurt
– juice of 1/2 a lemon
– 1/3 cup light vanilla soy milk
– 1 tablespoon lemon zest
– 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
– 1 tablespoon sugar – optional if you prefer a tart drink
yields one smoothie
Place 1 cup of ice in a blender; crush. Add in yogurt, and blend for 10 seconds. Add soy milk, lemon juice, lemon zest, poppy seeds, and optional sugar. Blend for about 30 seconds or until smooth.
