An easy paleo key lime pie smoothie recipe with avocado and coconut milk. And with one simple swap, it's also keto and vegan---perfect for breakfast or snacks on-the-go!
I've been on a smoothie kick lately. There's something about a rich, creamy, frozen coconut drink that is so indulgent. This paleo key lime pie smoothie is gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, and sweetened with just a touch of honey.
It is satisfying for breakfast or a snack. It's decadent enough for a dessert. And it's a lot faster than baking a pie.

Key lime smoothie with avocado
The secret ingredient to this smoothie is avocado. It makes it thick, creamy and decadent and adds a hint of green color. If you haven't tried avocado in your smoothies you are missing out! The extra creaminess and nutrition of the avocado takes this smoothie over the top.
The ingredients are simple — just coconut milk, lime, avocado, and honey. I used regular limes for this smoothie because I couldn't find key limes. If you are lucky enough to have key limes, you'll need to juice a couple more of them because they're so small. Either way, this key lime pie smoothie is like dessert in a glass.
Keto avocado smoothie
This key lime pie smoothie is delicious with honey, but you can make it a keto avocado smoothie with one simple swap. Just swap out the honey for your favorite keto-friendly sweetener. For smoothies, I like this alcohol-free stevia in drops. I think it has a milder flavor and blends well with the avocado, coconut milk, and lime for a keto key lime pie smoothie.
To make this a vegan key lime pie avocado smoothie, use either stevia or maple syrup for the sweetener. It's already dairy-free and the rest of the ingredients are vegan. If you're eating paleo, all three variations of this key lime pie smoothie are paleo-friendly!
And speaking of coconut milk, be sure to use a full-fat coconut milk that has just coconut and water for the ingredients. That way you're avoiding any processed food chemicals, gums, starches, or added sugars. The clean ingredient coconut milk is easier to find in a can---make sure it's BPA-free. I like this brand or Thrive Market brand.
