The Key Lime Pie Smoothie is a healthy smoothie that tastes like a key lime pie without the high amount of added sugar or saturated fat from cream and egg yolks. Limes have many health benefits including being high in vitamin C which helps keep your immune system strong.
Limes can also help those with diabetes maintain their blood sugar levels. Flaxseed is also added to this smoothie for an extra health boost that is high in omega-3 fatty acids that help lower blood cholesterol and keep a healthy heart. If diabetic, you may want to omit the graham crackers or use sugar free ones.
