She put the keylime in the coconut…

 

She drank em’ both up!  😉

 

So yesterday was another pretty hot day in these Boise parts and all the ladies in my office were talking and salivating over Sonic Drive-in’s infamous Cherry Limeade drinks. This was definitely after we adventured on yet another 4 mile hike during our lunch break.

Just think.. cherry, lime, lemonad-y slushie deliciousness! Awww…. but for some reason we never made it to Sonic for this delicious afternoon treat.

But I would be lying if I said I have not stopped thinking about it since. Because sadly, I have thought about nothing but this refreshing taste combination for two days now. The whole Cherry Limeade conversation started two days ago after our first hike.

So after two days of torturing my taste buds, I woke up this morning and remembered the bag of Key limes I had purchased a few weeks ago. SCORE!

If you think I decided to create my own version of a Cherry Limeade smoothie, you are correct folks! 🙂  I dubbed this creation the Cherry KeyLimeade Goddess Smoothie.

These guys are so tiny compared to regular limes. And their bite is not as puckery as a regular lime.

But let me tell you… the juicing process was a real pain in the neck.  It took me 10 key limes to make 1/4 cup of juice.

I figured that would be enough lime-ness for this beast of smoothie I was making.

Then I added in some leftover coconut milk. Mmmm…..

And why the heck not? I thought for good measure I would throw in some cocnutflakes.

I didn’t take a picture of the cherries or the other ingredients that helped to make this smoothie, so you will want to check the ingredient list at the bottom for the full overview of what went into this yummo treat.

Thus, the Cherry KeyLimeade Goddess Smoothie was born!

Can I just say that this is probably my most delicious awesome refreshing smoothie yet! SERIOUSLY!

Cherry KeyLimeade Goddess Smoothie:

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup frozen cherries
  • 1 banana
  • 2 handfuls of spinach
  • 1/2 cup lite coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1/4 keylime juice – juiced from 10 keylimes
  • 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons coconut flakes
  • 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder

 

Have you ever tried a keylime? What did you think about it?

I still have a half bag of keylimes leftover (not enough to make a pie out of), any ideas on something else fun I can do with them?

  1. That sounds really good!!! I haven’t been to Sonic in so long. I just can’t justify drinking my calories on most days. lol But I’m thinking that smootie you made would be worth it!

  2. Man, you are dedicated!! Actually, one of my best friends moved with me from California (Home of Sonic)to Maryland (the Land of No Sonics). Now we both work for the same construction firm and just saw an advert for a Sonic being built an hour outside of the city. Pretty far to travel for a burger, but you know she and I will make the time! 🙂

  3. Key limes are cute, but I find them a pain since they’re so small. I’d probably just slice them up and put them in my water. Or drizzle them over fish or salad or something.
