Jailya's Lock Ya Up and Throw Away the Key Lime Pie Smoothie

jailya's lock ya up and throw away the key lime pie smoothie

I use the Bella Cucina Rocket Blender to make my smoothies.

Wasn't it genius of Jaily to come up with a smoothie with the word key, so I could come up with this awesome pun?

So I mostly do not add sweeteners to my smoothies because bananas are sweet enough, but then sometimes you get tired of everything tasting like banana. Key lime juice and coconut milk make this so refreshing and creamy, and not at all like banana. I would have never thought of coconut milk!

It tastes. Like pie.

Jaily actually uses key limes that she peels, cuts up and freezes. I could not find key limes at the Jewel, but I did find key lime juice.

frozen banana
2 Tbsp key lime juice
1/2 cup greek yogurt
1/2 cup coconut milk
almond milk
graham crackers

Put the frozen banana in the blender cup, then the key lime juice, yogurt and coconut milk. Pour in a little bit of almond milk to fill the cup. Screw on the cap, stick the cup on the motor base, and blend for 30 seconds. Then take it off the base and give it a little shake to get anything that's stuck on the top of the cup. Blend for another 20 seconds or until the smoothie is churning freely from top to bottom.

Crumble graham crackers on top, or dunk 'em...
