This key lime smoothie is refreshing, light, and tart. This is the perfect smoothie when you’re craving a slice of key lime pie, but want something lighter!
I noticed the other day I haven’t posted any smoothie or drink recipes yet. I mean it’s summer, after all, there are smoothie recipes galore (which for the record I am totally loving). I love whipping up smoothies with frozen bananas, greek yogurt, almond milk, and fruit. They’re always super creamy and delicious, plus they’re healthy! Summertime is the one time of year where I feel like I can live off of fruit, anyone else? I always get a little sad when fall and winter get here, but then my pumpkin obsession comes back full force and all is right with the world.
I love tart desserts with lemon or lime and I’m sure I’m not alone. If you love key lime pie, then this smoothie is perfect for you! I’ve been eating the Chobani key lime yogurt like it’s my job lately. Have you tried it?! If not, I suggest you get your hands on some. I love topping it with my healthy homemade granola or crumbling up a graham cracker on top. It’s so delicious and makes me feel like I’m indulging a little when I’m really not at all.
Speaking of feeling like I’m indulging, I feel that way with this smoothie too. It’s so creamy, tart, and delicious! Topping it with loads of whip cream and graham cracker crumbs is totally optional, but highly suggested. I love my smoothie a little more tart, so you can feel free to scale back a little on the lime juice if you like. The best part is that this smoothie is healthy enough for breakfast, plus it packs a nice little protein punch from the yogurt! I think I know what I’ll be having for breakfast every day until the end of summer!
