Healthy Key Lime Pie Milkshake | Sugar Free, Low Fat, High Protein

Healthy Key Lime Pie Milkshake (oh, and I graduated!)

Healthy Key Lime Pie Milkshake — sweet, tart and suuuper creamy, it’s like Key Lime Pie filling in smoothie form!  You’d never know it’s refined sugar free, low carb, low fat, high protein and gluten free.  Yes, really!

And this is a damn good recipe to share as my first post as a university graduate!  Yes, I graduated on Saturday, May 16th.  I’m done everybody.

BOOM. DONE. FINITO.  *balloons fall from sky*

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.

  1. OMG no way! Congratulations girl!! I’m thinking of applying to UA for undergrad school 🙂 BTW this recipe looks amaaaaazing! Can I sub the cottage cheese for more Greek yogurt?

  2. So cool! Our graduation is reaaaaally boring! 🙁 You finish all your courses, fill in a form, send it to university and two weeks later you can come to the office at 10 a.m. where a secretary hands you your certificate xD You sign a sheet that you receivedyour degree and go home. No party, no celebration, no firework, nooooothing!!!! 🙁 So disappointing!

    I love the idea of pie flavoured milk shake, I will give it a try 🙂

  3. omg I totally forgot: CONGRATZ!!!!!! <3
    I am so excited and looking forward to following your journey! Wish you all the best, hun! 🙂

  4. Ahhhhh congratulations!!! 😀 You deserve all of the success in the world!! And this smoothie looks so fantastic. Give me ALL the smoothies!

  5. Terri Chrisman

    Congrats on your graduation. I’m sure you will be opening your healthy bakery in NYC in no
    At least now you will have plenty of time to make more cake!

  6. Congrats (again!). Great day for a graduation – my hubby’s b-day! I love the pics of you in the crowd and how you stand out from everyone else – great photographer!

    Secondly, this is Saturday morning breakfast. I’m only waiting that long because it’s forcing me to finally get around to making my own cottage cheese (plus I need to buy a lime to zest!). Wish me luck!

    • The Golden Graham Girl-
      Thank you so much! I’ll tell my sister you like her photography 😉
      And DIY cottage cheese?? I didn’t know that was possible! I hope you like the recipe 😀
      PS: Happy birthday to The Golden Graham Girl hubby! 😀

  7. Congratulations Jessica, I wish you all the best personally and professionally, great job!

    Great pictures! I bet they were not taken with a cellphone 😉

  8. Congratulations!!!

    This milkshake looks so yummy!

  9. Congrats on graduating!! That’s so exciting! I won’t be graduating from college in a LOOOONG time (read: I’m not even IN college yet)… but I’ll get there someday 😀

  10. Thank you for sharing milkshake loves us.

  11. Of COURSE you can make your own cottage cheese (like all of the other miraculous creations that come out of your kichen at home): courtesy of Alton Brown at The Food Network. 🙂

    Wow! Looks amazing, will have to give it a try! Congrats on graduating

  14. Are the graham cracker and whipped cream included in the calorie count?


  15. Bear Down my fellow Wildcat Alumna! I graduated in 2003 with my undergrad Materials Science & Engineering degree and in 2006 with my Biomedical Engineering MS degree. Congrats on your graduation, and thanks for the great recipe!

  16. Actually, I’m quite jealous. When I graduated in 03, the ceremony was in the McKale basketball arena, and it was rushed to get the next group of grads in and out. We didn’t get the massive party with fireworks in the football stadium! 🙁 Glad you got to experience it, though.

  22. This recipe is witch craft! It tastes just like a key lime pie. So delicious!! I added a scoop of vanilla protein powder and some xanthan gum to make it more of a fluff, so I could eat it rather than drink it. delicious5 stars
