Healthy Key Lime Pie Smoothie
Green Smoothie of the week
I’ve only recently discovered this healthy key lime pie smoothie and judging by the amount of times I’ve already made it I think it’s going to be an all time favourite.
There’s something about lime in smoothies. I don’t know what it is but I just adore it. It gives every smoothie an added zing and freshness. No wonder a lot of my favourite smoothies contain lime. So what could be better than an actual lime smoothie, and even better a healthy key lime pie smoothie.
I loved this smoothie so much I already featured it as one of my Top 10 Green Smoothie recipes, but I just had to turn it into a green thickie.
Why turn green smoothies into green thickies?
Wasn’t it good enough already I hear you ask? Yes it was just perfect but I drank this smoothie along with 4 other green smoothies on the morning I made it and it just didn’t fill me up at all. There’s nothing wrong with drinking green smoothies as snacks if you have the time to make them, but I don’t have time for snacking so that’s why my green smoothies have to be my meals. To make a green smoothie into a filling meal, I normally add oats to my them.

Change the calories to suit your own energy levels
Of course everybody needs a different number of calories to fill them up and we are all different on different days, some days we are hungrier, so feel free to adjust this smoothie accordingly. The beauty of green thickies are that you can simply add less oats (and a little less water) if you want less calories or more oats (plus a little bit more water) if you want a more filling drink. It won’t affect the taste at all as oats have such a neutral taste anyway.
This healthy key lime pie smoothie is perfect whatever the season as you can always get hold of bananas and limes.

Get results like this...Hi Katherine,
I just wanted to tell you I completed the 7 day detox and I feel so great.
I have lost 6lbs, do not feel like I need more my morning coffee, the flushing of my facial skin from rosacea has dramatically reduced and I am so excited to wake up each morning and make a green thickie for breakfast!!
I am a stay at-home, homeschooling momma of 3 littles and at times so busy I would forget to feed myself!
I would go most of the day without eating and then snack on random things.
I gained 60 pounds the last 6 years during pregnancy.
I have lost 30lbs but recently plateaued and have felt so frustrated.
I’ve tried everything from paleo and keto to the point where I didn’t know what to eat or how much and felt like even eating fruit was bad for me which thankfully it’s not!
What a game changer for me. Thank you for sharing a simple but effective program.
I’m so excited to continue another week with this plan! Thankful Stephanie
