An excellent way to ring in the springtime, this satisfyingly simple green smoothie recipe will wow you with its delicious flavors and healthy ingredients. You can play around with different ingredients, but remember to keep the ratio of fruit to greens about 60-40% for a delicious smoothie. The name of this smoothie is inspired by a song by a 1960s garage rock group called The Lemon Drops. Enjoy this smoothie while listening to the song and watching the buds on the trees emerge in the warm spring air.
