Sorry, I have no recipies for you but I just had to say I am SOOOO jealous you have a lemon tree. I wanted to get an indoor one, but my apartment is way too small. Is yours indoor or outdoor? How big is it? I still hope to have one, someday. I just think it would be so cool to bake using lemons off of my own lemon tree!
...I live in Canada and it's a big freezing snow pile out there now, and will be for the next few months...!
Hi, Mooficat! I'm envious of you for having lemon trees, too!
I don't have any recipes for lemon smoothies here at home, but I do love to use Google, and a quick search turned up a page that has three smoothie recipes on it, along with hundreds of other drink recipes using lemons:
I'd never heard of most of those drinks before...or of Webtender, for that matter.
The smoothies there are Grape lemon pineapple smoothie, Kill the cold Smoothie, and Tinyee's Orange Smoothie. Only one of those three smoothies (the last one) contains any alcohol, but it looks as though most of the other recipes there do contain alcohol. But since you mentioned gin and tonic you might be interested in the other recipes, too. (I'll have to check out Webtender more; looks like an interesting website.)
And this page has a lot of regular (non-alcoholic) fruit smoothies on it, many of them using lemons:
And looking at those reminded me that I haven't had breakfast yet...though if I have a smoothie for breakfast it's usually one made from several frozen strawberries, a banana, a cup of cottage cheese, a cup of milk, and half a teaspoon of vanilla...
