When you were young, we bet one of your favourite desserts was lemon meringue pie. With its amazingly flaky crust and the luscious lemon layer in the centre, it’s easy to see why this pudding is so popular – even with the most discerning dessert lover.

But the meringue on the top was by far the best part, don’t you think? We’ll admit, even our dedicated athletes like to indulge in a slice of lemon meringue pie as a treat from time to time.

Looking for a healthier, vegan-friendly alternative to celebrate Lemon Meringue Pie Day? This smoothie is exactly what you need. With an impressive 34g of protein, and bursting with revitalising lemony flavour, it’s a healthier option to the much-loved dessert – one your taste buds will go mad for.
