 This one really caught me by surprise, but was quite delightful.  My neighbor, Ray, brings the fruits from his citrus trees by, and gives them to us.  I decided to throw in one of the oranges that he had brought over.   Only thing, it turns out it was a lemon.  Surprise!  So, I put the whole lemon in the smoothie after peeling it and getting the seeds out.  It was such a large lemon and had a round shape like an orange, that it fooled me completely.   it wasn't until we started drinking the smoothie that my wife told me that it was a lemon, not an orange.  

Anyway it tasted very refreshing, even though it was tart.  My wife prefers the smoothies tart or not very sweet.

Today's smoothie recipe:  Lemon Surprise

2 bananas

1 5oz bag of spinach

1 gala apple, cored, with peel on

2 kiwis, peeled

1 whole lemon, peeled and seeded

1 Tablespoon of Moringa powder

2 cups of pure water

2 handfuls of ice cubes

Blend for 30 to 45 seconds in the Vitamix and done.

The whole combination was both nutritious and delicious with a bold, tart flavor.

If you like tart drinks, give this one a try.  Enjoy!
