Skinny Key Lime Pie Smoothie


I love Key Lime Pie. There is something about the tangy and sweet together that makes it one of my favorite treats. Since I am working hard on living a healthy life, I want to be able have my favorite treat without sacrificing what I am working towards. This smoothie is the perfect combination, all the flavor and not the crazy amount of calories.



You will need:
  • 1 cup Key Lime Greek Yogurt
  • 2 Bananas, peeled, sliced and then frozen 
  • 3/4 cup of Vanilla Almond Milk
  • ice
  • a graham cracker 
  • light whipped cream (omit this if you are going for super healthy)

Add the frozen slices of banana, almond milk, yogurt, a small handful of ice to your blender and blend until smooth. Top it with light whipped cream and a graham cracker, but when I am going for a really light treat I omit this step.


This is the perfect treat when you are looking for something sweet but you don't want to break the calorie bank!

It's like Key Lime Pie without the guilt! Love it and I bet my kids would drink it too since they love whipped cream and crackers.

I love key lime pie as well but I have to confess that I had never thought of making a smoothie from it. It reminds me of Shakeaway's awesome creations!
