Eating clean (or in this case drinking), doesn't have to be tasteless or boring, or mean you need to eat nothing but kale 5 times a week. In fact, eating healthy is actually quite the opposite. It means listening to your body and nourishing it with the right nutrients from the inside. That being said, cravings can get the best of us sometimes (we're all human). Next time you're feeling your sweet tooth calling for a trip to the pantry or demanding that you satisfy it with something packed full of sugar - go for a more healthy alternative - like this Key Lime Pie Smoothie! Not only is it healthy and packed with nutrition, it's fast and easy to make. Oh and did we mention it tastes like a Key Lime Pie??

In case you're wondering the "Key Lime Pie" is an American dessert named after the small Key limes that are naturally grown in the Florida Keys. It's basically a lime pie, topped with meringue. It's not particularly healthy, but it tastes delicious. The creamy-zesty flavour combination of meringue and lime is a classic one, so we thought it was time that we turned it into a healthy smoothie!

We've used our Cleansing Greens blend to give this recipe a superfood kick!
