Ingredients

Instructions

  • Begin by zesting the lemon. Put the zest in the blender then cut the remaining peel and pith (the white stuff) off the lemon. I do this by cutting both of the pointy ends, then I stand the lemon up on the board. Then I use a sharp knife to cut all the way around it just down far enough to remove the pith and leave the flesh intact.
  • Once done throw the whole lemon in the blender and discard the pith and peel.
  • Add all of the other ingredients except the maple syrup.
  • Blend until completely smooth. It makes quite a thick smoothie. If you prefer it a bit thinner you can add a little more coconut milk, or a drop of water to thin it out a bit.
  • Taste a little bit and add the maple syrup if you want a touch more sweetness. I like it with the maple syrup. Blend on low for a second to distribute then pour into a glass and enjoy.
