Raspberry Lime Smoothie

27
lime-smoothie1

It ‘s time for lime, as in a refreshing lime smoothie recipe. I personally love the taste of lime and you’ll notice there are not too many smoothie recipes for this wonderful fruit. Of course to make it more palatable I have added some great sweeteners such as raspberries and sherbet. Let me know what you think.



Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup lime (sliced)
  • 3/4 cup low-fat milk
  • 1 cup lime sherbet (can be light or low fat)
  • 1/2 cup raspberries
  • 2 cups ice

You can substitute key lime yogurt for the sherbet for a smoother, albeit, slightly different taste.

    Umm, yeah so I tried this one tonight…and I followed the recipe and mine came out red from the raspberries – so the picture is a bit deceptive. I do enjoy it – but just a warning, it is VERY tart.

    it says 1/2 cup of lime sliced – do you peel it like an orange or leave the rind on?

      I would never leave the rind on any fruit in a smoothie.

    We tried this tonight (I love lime) and was a bit surprised it turned out red from the raspberries. And, we agree with JD, it is VERY VERY tart. Finally added a little ginger ale and that helped.

    Does anyone have any idea how many limes typically makes up a half cup of lime?

    Would you reccomend this smoothie or is it not very good??

    I substituted the raspberries and sherbert for 2 bananas and low-fat key lime yogurt. I add 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder and an additional peeled lime. The outcome was tasty and creamy. Not tart and still taste the lime.

    Can’t wait to have another one for breakfast tomorrow.

    Mine was a very light green color. I suppose you can add kiwi or superfood if you want a darker green color.

    I added 2 Tbspn of white sugar to cut down on the tartness. Makes it less healthy, but it’s better than being undrinkable and healthy.

    Did add strawberries for raspberries since out. I too love lime. And strawberry yogurt so mine red, but got that lime kick too it. I have before added pineapple juice too. I wonder how pomegranate might taste ?!
