Key Lime Pie Smoothie

This healthy Key Lime Pie Smoothie recipe is creamy, tangy, and a delicious way to start your day (plus it’s a dead ringer for the classic dessert!)

At this point in my healthy smoothie obsession, any smoothie that doesn’t involve a vegetable feels like a treat (although green smoothies can be treats too, of course).

And if it’s a treat you’re looking for, this Key Lime Pie Smoothie is it! It has protein-packed Greek yogurt, sweet banana, fresh lime juice, and honey. And when that all comes together with a quick blitz in the blender, the result is a creamy and sweet lime smoothie that’s a dead ringer for Key Lime Pie!

Ingredients to make key lie pie smoothie

Ingredients for this Key Lime Pie Smoothie

  • Banana: Freeze your banana slices ahead of time to make this lime smoothie cold and frosty.
  • Yogurt: Plain Greek yogurt makes this smoothie rich and creamy. You could also throw in a dollop of cream cheese for a more decadent, cheesecake-y smoothie.
  • Lime: You can use key lime juice or regular lime juice, but aim for fresh juice where possible.
  • Sweetener: I love honey in this smoothie, but you could also use sugar, agave, or maple syrup.
  • Vanilla: Finish it off with a dash of vanilla extract to bring that pie feeling!

Variations on this Key Lime Pie Smoothie

  • More Creamy: For an even creamier smoothie, replace 2 tablespoons of the yogurt with cream cheese.
  • Add Color: To give this key lime pie inspired smoothie more green color, add a few leaves of fresh spinach. The spinach flavor is undetectable and it makes this smoothie even more fun!
  • Make It Lemon: This recipe also works great with fresh lemon juice and zest!
  • Make Popsicles: In the mood for popsicles? Add a touch more honey then freeze the mixture into homemade popsicles!

  7. I cannot wait to try to make this! Sounds so tasty!5 stars

  8. UMMMM DELICIOUS! I am so making these for my girls day brunch the next time we all get together. Yum!

    1. Sarah says:

      They’d be perfect for brunch! I’m usually all about green smoothies but those tend to scare off people, especially in a brunch setting. These are healthy but sweet and I hope you love them! 🙂

  9. Ashley says:

    Yum! This looks delicious! Key lime pie s one of my favorites!

    xo Ashley

  10. Brittany says:

    Smoothies with greek yogurt in it are the best! 🙂 I’ll have to try this one out!

    1. Sarah says:

      Definitely, I buy a giant tub of low fat Greek yogurt at the start of each week and use it everyday for smoothies!

  11. Chantal says:

    This looks so yummy! I make a smoothie similar to this every morning but with mango instead of lime.5 stars

    1. Sarah says:

      Oh yum I bet that’d be great! Unfortunately I just do not have the patience to peel and cut a mango in the mornings, but perhaps I’ll give it a go some afternoon 🙂

  12. Love key lime pie, so I’m pretty sure I’d love this smoothie — it looks fab! 🙂

  13. Mimi Rose says:

    This looks amazing!! Key Lime Pie is pretty much my ultimate dessert, and I would love to try it in a smoothie. Thanks for sharing, can’t wait to try it out!

  14. Sounds like dessert in a glass!

  15. This sounds so refreshing! I’ve never thought to enjoy key lime as a smoothie but now I can’t wait to give it a go!

  16. Cassandra says:

    That smoothie looks divine! So perfect for summer. Yum!

  17. Matt Lusk says:

    I just made this and it is really good. Usually a banana in a smoothy overpowers everything else but the lime juice was perfect and lime is definitely the aftertaste. Even though it has yogurt in it, it feels very light. It’s a winner.5 stars

    1. Sarah says:

      So happy you liked it, Matt! The lime adds so much more flavor than you would expect, doesn’t it? 😀

  18. Dindrane says:

    Truly, thank you so much. I have ulcerative colitis AND a gastric sleeve AND I’m vegetarian, so finding healthy, but low fiber, high protein, but a complete protein AND low fiber (I miss quinoa so much)… well, it’s a pain. But smoothies make it easy and affordable! I can always add unflavored or whatever flavor protein powder, and it’s supposed to be thick!

    You are so creative; I’ll never be bored or feel sorry for myself. :p

    1. Sarah says:

      Aw I’m happy you found this smoothie then!! Enjoy! 😀

  19. Toni-Ann Fletcher says:

    Just love this lime pie smoothie

    1. Sarah says:

      Happy to hear, Toni-Ann! 😀
