Lemon Cream Pie Protein ShakeWhat to do when your mama comes to visit and brings you a giant bag of the most glorious bright yellow lemons from her boyfriend’s tree? Make all the lemon things, of course!

Lemon Cream Pie Protein Shake We’ve already exhausted several options- lemon water every morning, lemonade (duh). Watermelon lemonade (yasss queen). Even a lemon sorbet sweetened with honey because someone has a wedding dress to slay in (in less than two months), so refined sugar is taking a serious backseat.

Lemon Cream Pie Protein ShakeBut this can prove difficult when you have a serious sweet tooth that refuses to lay off, wedding dress or not. So things like this healthy, vegan Lemon Cream Pie Protein Shake that kind of tricks you into thinking you’re indulging in a decadent dessert- when you’re simply filling up with fiber, protein and a little shot of vitamin C- are a godsend.

Lemon Cream Pie Protein ShakeHealthy dessert-inspired protein shakes are my fave- have you tried my Birthday Cake Protein Shake? Or my Blueberry Crisp Smoothie? They’re amazeballs. The trick for this Lemon Cream Pie Protein Shake is in the frozen banana, for a smooth, creamy consistency without any actual cream. I also added some coconut whipped cream (because dairy is also playing a minimal role in my diet these days, sigh) and cookie crumbs- for giggles. Is it healthy? Not the most, but definitely not the worst either. It’s just an optional touch that looks pretty and adds to the whole cream pie effect in a seriously delicious way. Too keep this protein shake uber-healthy, you can always skip it.

Lemon Cream Pie Protein ShakeI know I will be drinking these lemon cream pie protein shakes all summer long, but if you make one I want to see, so make sure to tag your pic on Instagram with #LePetitEats!
