Coconut Key Lime Pie Smoothie

I’ve got no plans on getting to the tropics this summer or any time too soon, so I’ve brought the tropics to me.  You’ll be happy to know, it’s easy to do, and it barely costs a thing.  :grin:  This Coconut Key Lime Pie Smoothie can be prepared in minutes, and one sip of its’ tropical flavors will transport you to whatever tropical destination you imagine.  Who needs an airplane?!  :wink:

It’s no secret that I have a love affair with key lime anything.  When I find fresh key limes at the store, I’ll make things like Key Lime Pie with Meringue Whipped Cream, Key Lime Cooler Cookies, or Fresh Key Lime Greek Yogurt Dip.  I just can’t stop.  :smile:

This Coconut Key Lime Pie Smoothie has become an instant favorite in our house.  It’s made with Chobani vanilla Greek yogurt, low fat coconut milk, banana, fresh key lime juice, and a little agave syrup to sweeten it up just enough.  All those ingredients are just blended together, and it’s one frosty, delicious smoothie.

I easily could’ve stopped there, but I didn’t.  :smile:  It’s not key lime pie without whipped cream and graham cracker crumbs, so I topped the smoothie with them.  I also had some toasted coconut flakes from Trader Joe’s, so they went on top, too.  Over the top?  No.  It was smoothie perfection.

You don’t have to use fresh key lime juice, but I prefer fresh over the bottled varieties.  I normally buy the limes when I see them, juice them, and freeze it until I’m ready to use it.  If you do use bottled key lime juice, the best brand I’ve found is Nellie and Joe’s Famous Key West Lime Juice.  It can be found at pretty much any grocery store, which makes it possible to enjoy these smoothies any time you want them.  I can guarantee once you make them, you’ll be making them again.  We can all use a tropical getaway, can’t we?  :wink:

Coconut Key Lime Pie Smoothie

Coconut Key Lime Pie Smoothies are full of tropical flavor with bananas, coconut milk, and key lime juice mixed with Greek yogurt. Top with whipped cream, graham cracker crumbs, and toasted coconut flakes to make this smoothie even more indulgent!

Ingredients

(2) medium bananas, frozen, and cut into 1" slices

2 cups Chobani vanilla Greek yogurt (0% or 2%)

1 1/4 cups low fat coconut milk

2 tablespoons fresh or bottled key lime juice

2 tablespoons blue agave sweetener (powdered sugar or honey work also)

whipped cream, graham cracker crumbs, and toasted coconut flakes for topping, optional

Instructions

Place the frozen bananas, Greek yogurt, coconut milk, key lime juice, and agave sweetener in a blender. Mix until smooth. Pour into glasses, and top with whipped cream, graham cracker crumbs, and toasted coconut flakes, if desired. Enjoy!

Notes

If you're not using fresh key lime juice, Nellie and Joe's Famous Key West Lime Juice is the best alternative!

I chose agave sweetener because it's mild flavor doesn't overpower the smoothie. My next choice would be powdered sugar, as honey changes the flavor considerably.

LOVE key lime anything! The Nellie and Joe’s key lime juice is the closest I’ve found to fresh squeezed :)

I really don’t want to use bottled key lime juice, but sometimes I have to in order to get my key lime fix!

Anything that brings the tropics to home is a great thing! I love this – especially with the graham crackers crumbs and trader joes coconut chips (I’m obsessed with those things).

And I love your napkin – I have the same one! It’s my favorite!

I have noticed that you have that napkin. It’s quite versatile! I found it for a rock bottom price at Anthro and had to get it. I could eat a whole bag of those coconut chips by myself in one shot!

I’m the same way about coconut milk as you are about key lime juice. This looks amazing.

Where did the recipe go?! I just went to remake this and can’t find it! AHH! HELP! So delicious!

flavorthemoments August 17, 2013 at 4:39 pm

Frustrating I know! My site is not working properly and I don’t know when it will be. Here is the quick recipe:

2 frozen bananas
1 1/4 cup low fat coconut milk
2 cups vanilla Greek yogurt
2Tbl. Key lime juice
2 Tbl. Agave syrup
Graham crumbs & whipped cream for garnish.

Just blend everything together in the blender!

I just made this and great recipe, I’d say that if your limes are not in season, or you are way up north like me, double the lime. Also, low fat coconut milk is pretty tasteless, and i found the chobani to totally overpower the bananas, coconut and even lime. The second time i made it, i doubled the coconut and lime and halved the chobani, it came out much more accurately, and limey, and i could even taste the bananas a little.

I’m always up for more lime flavor! It’s all personal preference, and I’m glad you found your recipe for perfection. Thanks for your input!
