Remember the Shamrock Shake? I am not sure those are even around anymore. My sister Shannon used to love them because they were minty. For spring’s approach this weekend I wanted to make a green smoothie. I am not a fan of mint and I know some people make green smoothies with veggies but not me, I went for lime!
That is right, I used lime jello for this recipe. I picked up a small package of lime gelatin and put it in a blender with 1/2 cup of boiling water and blended to help dissolve the gelatin.
Then I added 2 cups of lime sherbet, 1 cup of vanilla yogurt and 1 banana and blended away.
Lip-snackin’, tart and sweet, this smoothie is awesome! I could just imagine making a fizzy drink with it by adding some sparkling lemon and lime pop to it, crazy-delicious.
I love smoothies. I make them every single day and love experimenting with them. They are low in fat and full of flavour. Wish I could be the healthy person who makes spinach smoothies but hey, I eat spinach all the time.
This was a treat to celebrate the colour green and the fact that spring is officially around the corner! Can’t wait to see the colour green growing on my lawn. For now, I will toast my front yard with this lime smoothie and drink the colour green instead.
