Paleo Key Lime Pie Smoothie

Paleo Key Lime Smoothie

When we do smoothies in this house, they are almost always full-meal deals.  With my oober picky son…smoothies have provided a valuable way to get some much needed variety into his diet.  This smoothie is meant to be a full meal!!  Loaded with healthy fats, nutrients, and taste…this smoothie should stick with you!

I simply adore citrus…and this time of year there are some beautiful fruits to be had!  I have been making lots of varieties of citrus smoothies!  This one is creamy and dreamy….always a good combo in my book!

I use my own homemade coconut butter in this recipe, however it can also be purchased at well-stocked grocery stores and online.

There are many optional ingredients in this recipe as well…totally based on individual preferences.  Always start with less and add a touch more to get it just the way you like it.
