Key lime pie is such a classic spring and summertime treat, but it isn't always easy on our waistlines. Try this lighter take on the scrumptious dessert - it's got the same tart flavor with a delicious creamy texture and the added bonus of some protein! A few graham cracker crumbs make this smoothie even more authentic.
Chamomile Key Lime Smoothie
Makes 1 serving
- 1/2 cup strongly brewed chamomile tea
- 1/2 cup coconut milk
- 1 ripe, frozen banana
- 2 scoops vanilla protein powder
- 2 tbsp key lime juice
- zest of 1 key lime
- 1/2 cup vanilla greek yogurt
- 5 ice cubes
- whipped cream and graham cracker crumbs for garnish
Add all of the ingredients to a high speed blender and blend until the mixture is even and smooth. Since this smoothie includes frozen ingredients, it's best served immediately. Pour the smoothie into a glass, top with whipped cream and graham cracker crumbs, and enjoy!
