Today is the #eatseasonal post for April and I’m so excited to share this Healthy Key Lime Pie Smoothie with you today. This single-serve smoothie only take 4 ingredients and 5 minutes to put together. My family doesn’t really like citrus things even though I love them. I’ve been craving a nice tart dessert for weeks and this smoothie was just the treat I needed. Greek yogurt and half an avocado make it smooth and extra creamy, and the juice and zest from two limes give it just the pucker I was looking for. Limes and avocado are both in season right now too! That means they taste great, they are generally cheaper this time of year, and it’s easier to find high quality ones.

Keep reading for a whole list of what is in season in April as well as a gorgeous collection of recipes using seasonal ingredients!

Instructions

  1. Oh I just love adding avocados to smoothies. Makes them soooo creamy! And the zip from key limes must be so great. Can’t wait to try it out!

  2. Okay, I am making this asap, like today probably. I actually haven’t ever put avocado in a smoothie but I bet it makes it super creamy and luscious!!

  3. Love avocado and I eat key lime chobani yogurt almost every morning. I never thought to add avocado to a smoothie. I can’t wait to try it!
