Healthy Key Lime Pie Smoothie
Today is the #eatseasonal post for April and I'm so excited to share this Healthy Key Lime Pie Smoothie with you today. 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.
Here's a fun graphic for this month's seasonal produce guide. There's a few things on here that I haven't ever tried but now I'm on the look out for! Becky from Vintage Mixer, who put this graphic together, also hosts the recipe collection. You can visit her blog for more information on eating seasonally. You can also download this picture from her blog to use as a background on your computer or phone, to help you remember what things to include in your shopping list this month.
How do you get the most juice out of a lime?
Store limes at room temperature. Roll the lime on a hard surface and then cut the lime crosswise. The membrane inside the lime will be harder to break cutting like this but you will get more juice.
What should I do if my smoothie is too thick?
If your smoothie is too thick, simply thin it by adding a bit of any liquid.
Do smoothies need ice?
Smoothies don't need ice. In fact, ice will dilute the natural fruit flavor. I like to add frozen fruit to my smoothies so you still get that frozen, icy taste without comprising on flavor.
Can you taste avocado in smoothies?
The avocado taste is subtle but it totally makes the smoothie. The texture is so silky and smooth. Plus avocados are a healthy addition to your diet.

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!
I can't wait to try this, I love the avocado benefits.
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!!

LOVE avocado in my smoothies. The addition of lime sounds so bright and happy too!
Avocados are such a wonderful way to add creaminess to smoothies, and avocados and limes just love each other so much. Wonderful flavors!
