Lemon zest has many health properties. It is where the concentrated oils are, and the zest is powerful at getting rid of free radicals, and therefore helps with inflammatory problems. This smoothie is bright and refreshing! Because it uses all zest and no lemon juice, it has a delicious lemon flavor without the tang. What to do with the rest of the lemon? Use the juice in your water!

I created this recipe for Albertsons and Safeway.


8 ounces (1 cup) unsweetened coconut milk
Zest of 2 lemons
3/4 cup mango chunks, frozen
1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder


1. In a blender, combine all ingredients until smooth. Enjoy!
