Key Lime Smoothie (Low Sugar)

by | Jun 9, 2021 | Beverages

This refreshing Key Lime Smoothie tastes just like the pie, but with only 8g of sugar and satisfying fats from avocado and coconut milk.

Key lime pie but as a smoothie?! Yes please. This Key Lime Smoothie screams summer time. It’s deliciously rich and creamy but not-too-sweet.

I’ve been on a low-sugar-smoothie recipe creation kick, and this is the last one I’ve got to share with you all. I said that my Peanut Butter & Jelly Smoothie was possibly my favourite, but I think this one might actually be it (I suppose it depends on the mood you’re in, you know?) This smoothie is the right amount of sweet, but mostly has this zingy, sour lime twist to it that I love. There’s something very refreshing about it.

This would be a great smoothie to whip up on a warm summer day or even after dinner for a lil key-lime-pie bevvy (don’t get me wrong, a slice of regular ol’ key lime pie is delicious, too). But when you don’t want something to sugary, this is perfect. It has only around 8g of sugar.

How to Make Key Lime Smoothie

To make this smoothie you’ll need these ingredients:

  • banana
  • avocado
  • fresh limes + lime zest
  • full fat coconut milk (canned)
  • water
  • ice cubes
  • baby spinach for a boost of veggies and colour
