Limes are a wonderful source of vitamins C and E, and are known for keeping scurvy at bay for pirates long ago. Limes also charge your immune system, reduce inflammation, and aid in digestion, all of which are weigh-in on your energy levels.

Avocados have high concentrations of many B vitamins, as well as beta-carotene, magnesium, and vitamins E and K. These nutrients support and sustain your body as a whole, as well as your energy and metabolic functioning. Avocados are also rich in healthy fats, protein, and fiber, all of which are essential for keeping your energy levels even and sustained.

Deliver Ingredients

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups apple juice
  • ½ cup lime juice
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 2 bananas
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoon honey

Directions

Add all ingredients to the blender and blend till smooth. Sarma says this tastes like drinking liquefied key lime pie filling and she is absolutely right. I’m in love with this shake especially since my trip to Key West, where I sampled many pies and decided that Kermit’s was my favorite, closely followed by Sloppy Joe’s, and now I want Key Lime Pie all the time. Since that is neither possible nor advised, this version is ideal for me and way healthier.

Key Lime Pie Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Key Lime Pie Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
