Our “Creamsicle” Smoothie Recipe

Published

on

Our “Jet Set Diet” is all about keeping sugar low and avoiding as many inflammatory ingredients as possible. We have a favorite smoothie recipe that gives you much of what your body needs right off the bat and the addition of a couple fresh ingredients is optional.

Here is our simple “Creamsicle” flavor smoothie:

Quest Vanilla Milkshake Protein Powder – 1 Scoop

This powder is great tasting and extremely satisfying.

Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk- 8 Ounce

This also makes it taste creamier and provides more vanilla flavor

Orange Metamucil (Sugar Free, Smooth) – 1 Tbsp

Adding the Metamucil to the smoothie will provide needed fiber, along with the orange flavoring that combines with the vanilla protein powder to create a delicious “Creamsicle” flavor.

Maca Powder (Optional)- 1 Tsp

Maca powder has been recognized for many positive attributes including increasing endurance, reigniting the libido, stabilizing hormones and other benefits.

Frozen Fresh Kale – 1 Cup or more

We buy bags of kale and freeze them. We then crush it (while still in bag) which allows it to be blended easier. The remainder can be placed into a ziplock freezer bag and placed back into the freezer.

Here are the dry items on Amazon:


Quest Nutrition Protein Powder, Vanilla Milkshake, High Protein, Low Carb, Gluten Free, Soy Free, 2lb Tub, Packaging May Vary


Metamucil Multi-Health Psyllium Fiber Supplement Sugar-Free Powder, Orange Flavored, 180 Servings


Terrasoul Superfoods Organic Gelatinized Maca Powder, 16 Ounce


Nutri Ninja Personal Blender with 1000 Watt Auto-IQ Base for Juices, Shakes and Smoothies with 18 and 24-Ounce Cups, and 75 Recipe Book (BL480D)
