Made with lemon yogurt, the bright and sweet flavors of this smoothie are the perfect way to wake up and put yourself in a good mood. How could you not be in a good mood when you start your day with a healthy smoothie that tastes like raspberry lemonade?

The vitamin C content in the kiwi and strawberries help this smoothie boost and protect your body and give you energy. The ingredients are simple with fruits, honey, mint leaves, and flax seeds. The kiwis are juicy enough that you shouldn’t need liquid, but a bit of water will loosen it up if necessary.
