Avocado Key Lime Pie Smoothie Bowl

Avocado Key Lime Pie Smoothie Bowl

Author: Meal Makeover Moms

For our Avocado Key Lime Pie Smoothie Bowl, we took traditional Key Lime Pie and gave it an “extreme” makeover, turning it from a decadent dessert to something you could feel good about serving to your family. We love it for breakfast, but by no means should you limit yourself to the morning meal. This smoothie bowl can do double duty as a snack … or triple duty as a better-for-you dessert. Vanilla Greek yogurt and agave add a subtle sweetness to every spoonful, and the nutrient-dense California Avocado provides a pretty green color while contributing good monounsaturated fats and nearly 20 nutrients including vitamins, minerals, and dietary fiber.
