Creamy Brazilian Limonada  

This is a thick, smoothie version of the viral drink going around. Yes, it uses whole limes but trust, the rind is edible and it’s going to taste great!

INGREDIENTS 
4 sliced, whole limes 
1 cup ice 
1 tsp vanilla extract 
½ can coconut cream 
Pinch of allspice 
1 scoop unflavored protein powder (optional) 


DIRECTIONS 

  1. Slice limes into quarters. TIP: If you want a sweeter version of this smoothie, zest the limes and remove the pith (the white part of the lime) before cutting the pulpy flesh into quarters.  
  2. Add all your ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. 
  3. Strain the mixture after blending to remove excess pulp (or keep it pulpy if you like it!)
