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. ♥
