Strawberry Lemonade Smoothie

Strawberry Lemonade Smoothie

Summer is finally here, and nothing is more refreshing than lemonade. Start the morning off with a hydrating, high-protein smoothie. Frozen fruit keeps longer than fresh while maintaining similar vitamins and mineral content. 

Active Prep Time: 5 minutes

Makes 1 16oz  serving


  • 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1, 5.3 oz cup of lemon Greek yogurt (low sugar, ex. Light & Fit)
  • Juice from ½ lemon
  • ¾ cup almond, dairy, or soy milk
  • Optional: 1 scoop of vanilla or strawberry protein powder
  • 1-2 handfuls of spinach (optional but recommended)


  1. Combine the ingredients into a 16 oz portable blender cup and blend. Add ice as needed.


  • 1 smoothie: 180 calories, 29g carbs, 2g fat, 13g protein, 3g fiber (almond milk, no protein powder)


  • To get a full serving of veggies without the taste, add spinach. Fresh spinach blended into smoothies is tasteless but will turn your smoothie green!
  • To increase the calories for weight gain or as a meal replacement, add oats or use dairy/coconut milk.
  • Pair with whole-grain toast or a whole-grain granola bar
