Banana and Lemon Green Smoothie

I love when I find a new ingredient for my green smoothies! This is one ingredient that isn’t outlandish or the latest super food on the market, its very simple- lemon! Ive starting putting a a good slice of lemon (peel and all) in my smoothies and it adds such a gorgeous zing to the drink. Make sure you buy organic lemons seeing as you are using the skin and they tend to be heavily sprayed. Enjoy!
