A Luscious Key Lime Pie Smoothie with Coconut Milk
This smoothie has my heart. It’s full of nutritious ingredients, is wonderfully creamy, and is filling, thanks to the healthy fats and protein.
It’s just what you need when you start to burn out on bacon and eggs, or meats and veggies.
When life gets busy, smoothies are a great option to stay on track. Just make sure to limit fruit added to small amounts of berries (or in this case – lime juice!), use green veggies, and add protein.
You’ll love this KEY LIME PIE Smoothie because:
- The contrast between tart lime juice and creamy coconut milk is pure magic.
- It’s macro friendly for keto or low carb dieters — just 9 grams of net carbs (14 total carbs + 5 grams of fiber).
- It contains 2 servings of fruits and veggies!
- 20 grams (or 30 grams) of protein will keep you satiated throughout the morning.
For this MAGICAL Keto Smoothie, you’ll need:
- Avocado (I weigh mine to make sure I am not going overboard!)
- Coconut milk
- Spinach (great pop of nutrition! I keep bags frozen for smoothies.)
- Monk Fruit Sweetener (my favorite clean keto sweetener)
- Whey Protein Isolate (this brand has 0 carbs and is grass-fed whey)
- Lime Juice
How to Make a Keto Avocado Smoothie
Step 1: Add all your ingredients to a blender. Look at your macro needs and adjust the recipe as desired (such as adding more avocado, or more protein powder).
Step 2: Blend the smoothie until it’s super cream. Garnish it with whipped cream (sugar free), “graham cracker” crumbs, and lime zest, if desired (a fun treat!).
Make Yours PERFECT
Whipped Topping: If desires, use pastured heavy whipping cream. Whip it until stiff. I don’t sweeten mine – try it before you do! It’s naturally sweet. Add a teaspoon or two of monk fruit sweetener if desired.
“Graham Cracker” Crumbs: To give this smoothie an illusion of graham crackers, I mixed almond flour and cinnamon and dusted the top of the smoothie with it. The cinnamon is a great pop of flavor, but otherwise this step is mostly for presentation!
Add more Protein: I have been adding a scoop of Collagen to my smoothies and coffees on most days. If you have higher protein needs, this is a great addition!

- Whipped Topping: To give this a real “pie” experience, I used whipped cream. I make this by whipping pastured heavy whipping cream until stiff. I don’t sweeten it, but you can add 1-2 teaspoons of monk fruit sweetener if you’d like.
- “Graham Cracker” Crumbs: I used 1 teaspoon of almond flour combined with a pinch of cinnamon to give it a crumble looking topping. It doesn’t really taste like graham cracker but is more for presentation! Use just a sprinkle of cinnamon to keep it simple.
- Lime Slice & Lime Zest: Adding these adds a great pop of lime flavor to your smoothie experience!
