Our Key Lime Pie Smoothie is topped with a delicious coconut whipped cream to kick off the official arrival of Spring and the beginning of Earth Month. We whipped up this pie-meets-smoothie creation in celebration of all the bounty and freshness of Spring. This lime smoothie is not only fresh and tart, but the added coconut whipped cream makes it decadent too. This is a perfect smoothie to sit back with, enjoy the sunshine, and contemplate the warmer months ahead.
