HEALTH BENEFITS AND FUN FACTS ABOUT KEY LIME PIE
The origin of key lime pie has been traced back to the late 19th century in the Key West, Florida area.  The first formal mention of Key lime pie as a recipe may have been made by William Curry, a ship salvager and Key West’s first millionaire; his cook, “Aunt Sally”, made the pie for him. If such is the case, however, it is also possible and maybe even probable that Sally adapted the recipe already created by local sponge fishermen. Sponge fishermen spent many contiguous days on their boats, and stored their food on board, including nutritional basics such as canned milk (which would not spoil without refrigeration), limes and eggs. Sponge fishermen at sea would presumably not have access to an oven, and, similarly, the original recipe for Key lime pie did not call for cooking the mixture of lime, milk, and eggs.

    We have a vitamix so instead of the butter I added toasted sunflowers. The stevia wasn’t even needed! This was delicious, thank you!

    Delicious! I ran out of spinach, so I used a bunch of romain lettuce and 1/2 of a small cucumber. I love how you can sub so many veggies in the Vitamix!

    1. Thanks for sharing Janine! That sounds like a great substitution! This key lime pie green smoothie is a favorite of ours, we’ll have to try it your way. 🙂 HAPPY BLENDING!

    I love, love, love this smoothie. Creamy, lime, tastes just like a pie and kinda like you are cheating on the smoothie challenge. My kids had NO idea there was spinach in it, I have to make more now. Hands down my family’s favorite

  4. Excellent post. I was checking continuously this blog and I’m impressed! Very useful information particularly the last part 🙂 I care for such info a lot. I was looking for this particular info for a very long time. Thank you and best of luck.
