Alkalize your body with the power of citrus! Lemons and limes, though acidic prior to digestion, actually have an alkaline effect after passing through the gastrointestinal system in our bodies. Sherbet is a good way to get some of the benefits of cow’s milk, like calcium and potassium, while feeling as if you are eating a decadent ice cream treat. This smoothie recipe is tart yet sweet and refreshing for those hot summer days. Peeling the lemons and limes first is generally recommended, but it is okay to include some of the peel in your smoothie recipe. The peel contains tannins that are bitter tasting but provide antioxidants.

Ingredients: 
1 cup lime sherbet
1 lime, peeled
1/2 lemon, peeled
Instructions: 
  1. Add all ingredients to the blender and blend until smooth.
Tips: 
To significantly reduce preparation and blending time try using one of our recommended high end best blenders for smoothies.
