You know those Paleo Lemon Blueberry Muffins I made about a month ago? The soft, tender ones with that lovely lemon glaze that were packed with blueberry goodness? Yeah, those ones. I haven’t been able to get the deliciousness out of my head. There is just something so special about that lemon + blueberry combo. A little bit sweet, a little bit sour, a whole lot of yum.

The lemon blueberry flavor always makes me think of springtime. This smoothie is simple, too, requiring just 6 ingredients and only 5 minutes of your time.

So, say hello to my new favorite breakfast, snack and lunch (Yes, lunch!) – the one and only, Lemon Blueberry Muffin Protein Smoothie. Hiya gorgeous.

This Lemon Blueberry Muffin Protein Smoothie uses vanilla protein to give it a subtle doughiness. Fresh lemon adds a vibrant flavor that pairs so perfectly with naturally sweet blueberries and R.W. Knudsen Family Just Blueberry Juice.

This smoothie recipe is just the ticket for a lightly-sweet and satisfying breakfast, snack, or after-dinner treat!

So much healthier than your average lemon blueberry muffin and will keep you much satisfied longer too.This smoothie is:

Perfectly sweet
Slightly tangy
Ultra-thick
Packed with goodness
Springtime in a glass
And kinda my new thing!

I credit the R.W. Knudsen Family Just Blueberry Juice, frozen banana and blueberries for giving this smoothie a lovely sweetness and the blueberry flavor, of course, but the addition of lemon and vanilla protein powder really takes it from blueberry smoothie to blueberry muffin smoothie.
