Plant-Based Key Lime Pie Smoothie

Want all the key lime and graham cracker flavor without the pie? Grab this smoothie!

Using lime zest and juice in smoothies opens up a world of flavors. For this key lime pie–inspired smoothie, standard limes can be used to mimic the more aromatic and intense flavor of traditional key limes (which are also seedier and yield less juice). Don't skip the citrus zest which contains bright aromatic essential oils crucial for this flavor experience.

To complete the pie experience, we've used some vegan honey-free Nabisco Graham Crackers, which will add a warm "baked" flavor to the smoothie.

This smoothie comes out beige and lacks a bit of visual appeal—but baby spinach is a great solution  for that. It packs the nutrients and the bright green color without an overpowering flavor that would clash with anything you're making.
