Know what you call a key lime pie popsicle when kids are feeling impatient? A smoothie.
Specifically, this smoothie. It’s refreshingly cool and creamy, with just the right amount of sweetness and tang. Rich in healthy fats and naturally sweetened, it makes a great afternoon snack on warm days, and it’s super easy to make.
Key Lime Pie Avocado Smoothie
- 1 banana
- ½ avocado
- ½ cup coconut milk (or substitute dairy milk / almond milk)
- ½ tsp vanilla extract (or use homemade vanilla extract)
- 4 tbsp lime juice (about 2 limes' worth)
- zest of 1 lime
- ½ cup ice
- 1 tbsp maple syrup (or raw honey)
- 1 ½ - 3 tsp gelatin hydrolysate (optional)
- 2-4 egg yolks (optional)
- Add banana, avocado, milk, vanilla extract, lime juice, lime zest, ice and gelatin to blender. If desired, add optional egg yolks and additional supplements/add-ins. Turn blender on, remove cap from the blender lid, and pour in additional liquid/ice as needed. Taste and add honey/maple syrup if desired, then serve.
- * If you're not comfortable consuming raw egg yolks it's totally fine to leave them out. Here's an article which discusses the subject in more detail.

The instructions say to add the coconut oil/butter in a slow stream, but they are not listed in the ingredients list. How much do you add?
Oops! I got the last section of the recipe mixed up with the instructions for a different smoothie. There is no coconut oil or butter in this version – I’ll correct the post now. Thanks for your question, Lori! 🙂
