At this moment in my healthy smoothie obsession, any smoothie that doesn’t include a veggie feels like a reward (although green shakes can be tasty too, of course).
And if it’s a reward you’re looking for, this Healthy Lime Smoothie is it! It has protein-packed Greek yogurt, fresh lime juice, healing turmeric powder, and honey.
When that all comes together with a quick blitz in the mixer, the outcome is a creamy sweet lime smoothie.
