Graduation turned into a stadium-wide party…  😉

But before this huge celebration?  The entire week was incredibly hectic.  Not only was it finals week, I had to move out of my apartment and pack up to travel across the US — Arizona to New York.  I packed up my closet, all my (800-pound) textbooks, my pantry, etc.

The only appliance I kept out until the very end was my blender.  But, that didn’t mean I had to make a boring smoothie everyday.  I made some deeeelicious smoothies and milkshakes throughout that week, I can’t wait to share the recipes with y’all  :)

I decided to start with this Key Lime Pie Milkshake.

Pie in a milkshake?  Totally!  It’s faster (and way easier) than baking a pie, and this version is totally healthy too.  It’s seriously amazing guys.  It’s so thick and creamy, sweet and tart, addicting and chug-worthy…  I know I’ll be making it time and time again.
