Lemon Cream Smoothie--Super Healthy

This super healthy smoothie reminds me of my Grammy's lemon sherbet, a treat for which everyone clamored. The mingling of sweet and tart, creamy, cold, and refreshing, (sigh) I may need another soon.
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/2 cup plain, Greek yogurt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon lemon extract or 4-6 drops Young Living Essential Lemon Oil
zest from 1 lemon
juice from 1 lemon (the same one)
pinch of good salt, optional
1/2 tray of ice
1/4 teaspoon glucomannan powder, optional
Stevia or honey to taste
1 scoop vanilla protein powder if it's a meal, 1/2 scoop if it's a snack, or omit it if it is dessert after a protein rich meal
Add everything to the blender container and whirl for 2 minutes.

 This fine young man is my handy, dandy, button pushing assistant. Just be sure to keep the lid on anytime he is close by and it will all go well. Incidentally, he prefers fresh red raspberries in his smoothie to the lemon, same recipe.

 Breakfast, snack, or dessert, can't go wrong!
