Key Lime Pie is one of those desserts that I’ve never EVER been able to say no to whatever the situation is. I found recipes on the web for a healthy Key Lime Pie Smoothie which I thought I should give a try but I didn’t like some of the ingredients. I also didn’t have two of the ingredients at home so I thought I’d just modify with something similar just so I could get an idea on how it would taste like.

This is actually a challenge for me because I’m not fond of smoothies that are green in color. I could drink a green soda or a green juice but not something as thick as a smoothie. I’ve also never tried making a smoothie that has any leafy greens for fear I’d just dump it in the sink after the first sip. I know it’s healthy but it just doesn’t sit in that much with me.

I thought a smoothie that tastes like Key Lime Pie should change my mind about leafy greens in my drink.

So I had a cup of Spinach, frozen bananas, dates, peanutbutter, almond milk, lime juice, and chia seeds in my blender this morning…

Then with eyes closed, I pressed blend……

The taste wasn’t that bad, it actually tastes good but it was too thick for me. I wished I threw in some ice cubes just to have a thinner consistency. I had an idea, though. This would make a nice Halloween breakfast. Will tell you how on my next post…..

    1. I haven’t tried cucumber on my smoothie yet. Hmmmmnn… that’s the next thing I should try.

  1. How important are the dates? I have everything else already at my house but the dates. This sounds delicious for breakfast!

    1. The dates gives this a caramel-like sweetness. I think it would work without it just add a bit of honey.

  2. Looks intriguing but I’ve done juice fast in the past and have mixed varieties of greens and fruits. Some didn’t quite make my palate excited others were ok. As long as it’s a healthier option than a soda, I guess I’d give this one a try. 🙂

    1. Different people have different tastes. I think you should give it a try. Maybe you’ll like it.

  3. I can’t drink that too 🙁 I also can drink green soda or green juice but not smoothies.. I don’t even like the idea of drinking green mango shake (kadiri! haha)
