Dessert for breakfast? Yes, please! Especially if it’s healthy! That’s why we’re bringing you this key lime pie smoothie. Good Morning!

Summer is right around the corner, and that calls for a refreshing citrus smoothie. I love key lime pie, so I decided to experiment with a few different key lime pie smoothie recipes until I found the perfect one. This one has a mouthwatering sweet lime tart taste but without all the added bad calories of the original Key Lime Pie. This smoothie will make you feel like you are indulging in a decadent dessert. You can even make this for a healthy dessert that is light and creamy.

Benefits of Lime

This citrus fruit has so many health benefits which include weight loss, skin care, improved digestion, relief from constipation, eye care, and treatment of scurvy, peptic ulcer, respiratory disorders, gout, and gums. It has many vitamins and minerals including potassium. Potassium is important for maintaining nerve function and healthy blood pressure levels. This fruit is also linked to antioxidants and bioflavonoids that researchers believe could lower the likelihood of cancer.

Fun Fact: There are two main lime fruits: Tahitian and Key. Did you know that Key Lime Pie was originated in Key West in the 1800’s? It has been around awhile, and I don’t think it is going anywhere!
