Key Lime Pie Smoothie

Key Lime Pie Shake

I have been enjoying a lot of limes lately.  Just been craving the flavor for some reason.  Especially key lime pie. So I made some Key Lime Pie Bites, and those were wonderful, but I wanted to bring that flavor to my smoothie as well!  Smoothies are actually a treat for me when I have time to make them on the weekends for an after workout snack, and I like them to taste like delicious dessert, so key lime pie fit!

Aside from the typical smoothie ingredients I use like bananas and protein powder, I actually used something interesting to make this smoothie green and give it more heft without adding more bananas...zucchini!  You could not even taste it in there!  I am all for adding veggies to anything possible.  I added plenty of lime because I like my key lime pie tart.  This was delicious!  Drinkable key lime pie. I had some finger limes, and I had fun garnishing the top with those. They are like little fruity lime caviar!  If you are a fan of key lime pie, you should definitely put this smoothie on your list to try!
