The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

Raw lemonade smoothies are refreshing during the summer. There's something very cooling about that tart, tangy taste.

The color of this raw lemonade smoothie doesn't look very lemony due to the darkness of the dates, but the taste will be lemony-zingy!

I just love lemon-flavoured raw food recipes, like these raw lemon cookies.

Remember that you should always put the softest ingredients, such as bananas, in first. That way they're close to the blender's blade and make it easier to blend.

If you don't have a high-speed blender (such as a VitaMix) I might leave out the celery because celery is kind of stringy if not blended well. Also, if you don't have a high-speed blender make sure your dates are soft. If you have really hard dates, soak them in warmish water for half-an-hour or so.

Tip: If you don't have celery, try adding a handful of fresh parsley instead!

Enjoy!

WOW!!! I just tried this smoothie and it was amazing!!! I did add some spinach to it (it doesn't feel right unless I add some greens!) and I decided to add mint instead of celery. I can't wait to have another one!!!

Hi Rakesh,

You can omit the celery and use spinach instead of parsley.

Hope this helps!

Ok, so I put all the ingredients in my vitamix blender, I pulled up my nose, stuck my tongue out at the vitamix & said to myself, how gross, there's no ways this can taste good, not celery & a whole lemon mixed with banana & dates! Took my first sip & I was mind-blown away!! I even felt so ashamed at my own ignorance and arrogant thoughts that this could be disgusting, I was so wrong & I apologise. I cant wait to have another raw lemonade smoothie, its the best ever & my mouth watered so much after each sip.

So my husband and I are on a Mediterranean diet which is naturally a diabetes prevention and anti-inflammatory and all raw diet foods and all paleo diet foods are inside our lifestyle. We do tons of fruits and veggies and nuts, but we also do lean meats, fish, and low fat dairy products. I found your recipe for raw flaxseed crackers and they are in the dehydrator now. I am going to try this lemonade smoothie tomorrow. I was wondering, have you ever tried your hand at fruit leather? If so, what was your favorite flavors? I feel like you would be excellent and developing leathers that have complimentary tastes. I have made strawberry-banana and strawberry-blueberry and they are pretty good.. but I am looking for better ideas. Any suggestions?

Hi Crista, sounds like you and your husband are doing great. Re: fruit leather, those combos sound good to me! Rasberry is good too - kind of gritty, but has a nice bite :)

Do you use the whole lemon seeds and all ( not all of the skin, just some)?
Thinking I'll have to give this a try given all the great reviews :)
