But what about day-to-day life when a key lime pie craving hits in the morning (please tell me I’m not the only one who craves dessert for breakfast sometimes!) or in the mid-afternoon when you’re dying for a sweet pick-me-up but don’t want to dig into something quite so rich and indulgent?
How about a key lime pie cheesecake protein smoothie!?
This smoothie tastes like dessert but incorporates fruit, protein-packed Greek yogurt and fresh lime juice. The sneaky spoonfuls of cream cheese give it the dessert-like flavor.
