Blueberry Lemon Creamsicle Shake (THM FP)

So this is totally reminiscent of an orange creamsicle.  Don’t believe me?  You should make it and see for yourself.  It’s a blueberry blend of creamy citrusiness (yeah I made up a word, so what? lol)…..IT’S TOTALLY YUM!  It may not have the traditional orange flavor of a creamsicle, but it’s a nice berry-citrus infusion that’s a welcome treat.

During the last 2 week challenge in my Challenge Group (my Facebook group, learn more here), one of the guidelines was to have more smoothies.     I was looking for some new Fuel Pull shakes to enjoy and I came up with this one. (Fuel Pull is a Trim Healthy Mama term meaning low-carb, and low-fat)   I really enjoy being able to have a giant smoothie entirely on its own as a meal.  So they need to be protein packed and hearty enough to carry me those 3 hours THM suggests you wait between your meals.  This Blueberry Lemon Creamsicle Shake, is delicious, filling and protein packed and it’s a giant of a glass full …..I can easily fill a 32 oz (1 quart) glass jar with this recipe.  I’m not joking, it’s gonna fill you up good.  ♥

Really any excuse to use my super-duper fantastic OmniBlend blender is good enough for me.  My OmniBlend blender makes up the best smoothies I’ve ever had, I just ♥ ♥ ♥ it.

So just throw all the ingredients into your blender and let it whir.  Than let me know what you think about it by commenting below!  Oh, and follow my blog so you don’t miss any of my recipes.  ♥

    1. It sure is tasty and filling. It keeps me going for the 3 hour stretch. <3
  1. Made this for breakfast this morning. Total YUMMY! This will be on my weekly meal planner often. Thanks for the recipe Chrissy.
    1. You could use a scoop of collagen, or just leave out entirely. It will just be a bit less frothy. <3
  2. Made this today! Delicious! I did use 2 drops lemon essential oil in place of the lemon juice which gave it a nice lemon undertone. I'm not a fan of bottled lemon juice in shakes, it's fine for cooking. I didn't have any fresh lemons.
  3. Am sipping on this now. Yumm- OH!! Very good. I used freshly squeezed lemon, otherwise all the same. Very good. This is a keeper!!
  4. I threw in a piece of fresh ginger the second time I made this. Adds a nice zing to it!
