Spring is so close, I can smell it coming. A favorite spring time product is dōTERRA’s Orange Cream TrimShake. As a meal replacement, this product is great to incorporate with your fitness goals to help reduce calorie intake but increase flavor.
The doTERRA TrimShakes comes in two additional flavors, Vanilla, and Chocolate. The TrimShake mix blends well with milk or water and increases feelings of fullness while providing 8 grams of protein and 2.5 grams of fiber per serving! dōTERRA’s Orange Cream TrimShake provides a convenient low-fat, low-sodium, low-calorie, sugar-free, lean alternative that is a good source of fiber for individuals trying to lose fat or maintain a lean body composition through calorie reduction and exercise. The Slim & Sassy TrimShake includes the patented weight-loss ingredient EssentraTrim, which, research has shown, helps manage cortisol-a stress hormone associated with fat storage. It may help control stress-induced appetite, overeating, and carbohydrate cravings. It may also support blood sugar levels already in the normal range and enhance energy levels while alleviating fatigue commonly associated with dieting and exercise! Blend one scoop of shake mix in 1/2 cup of almond, rice, or soy milk, or water until smooth and creamy. Also blends well with fruits and vegetables. For unique flavor options, blend one drop of your favorite doTERRA essential oil in shake. Serve chilled.
A lean, trim body composition is a reflection of a healthy lifestyle that includes eating right and staying physically active. Eating right means eating appropriate quantities and eating quality foods that include a healthy ratio of carbohydrates, proteins, fats, and vitamins and minerals. A healthy diet of fresh, whole fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and healthy proteins provides the body with the resources it needs for energy production, growth, and immune and other metabolic functions.
Too much food can be unhealthy. Fat cells function as the body’s energy storage units. Excess calories not converted to energy or used as building blocks for growth and repair can be converted to lipids and stored in fat cells. When the body has used other more readily available energy stores, fat cells release stored lipids as fuel for energy metabolism. Maintaining a lean body composition requires storing fewer excess calories in fat cells and increasing the release of calories stored in fat cells to be used for energy production. In other words, to keep fit and trim, we need to eat less and exercise more. We also need to eat smarter.

doTERRA OrangeCream Recipes
If you’re trying to lose weight, the goal is to eat healthily and get fewer calories in conjunction with exercise. Slim & Sassy® TrimShake has a variety of uses, in addition to smoothies. To give you some different ideas, we’ve compiled the following three recipes, with the most basic option possible for each type of recipe. When you’re ready for more variety, we have also included ways you can change up each recipe to suit your tastes.
The premise behind overnight oats is to make breakfast as fast, healthy, and easy as possible. For the purposes of this recipe, you always use old-fashioned oats as quick oats won’t work.
- Combine ingredients in a jar or a Tupperware container.
- Shake to combine well.
- Place in refrigerator overnight.
Ways to change it up:
Use ¼ cup Greek Yogurt and ⅓ cup almond milk instead of just almond milk. Or, you can also add in a small amount of any of the following: hemp seeds, goji berries, berries, banana, cacao nibs, nut butter, and chia seeds (ground or whole).
No-Bake Peanut Butter Protein Bars
The peanut butter recipe below is a classic take on a homemade protein bar, full of good ingredients that will help fuel your body the right way. With eight grams of protein per serving, TrimShake in any flavor is a great addition to any protein bar or energy ball.
1 cup rolled oats
2 tablespoons honey
1 cup natural peanut butter or any other nut butter
½ cup Vanilla TrimShake
½ teaspoon salt
⅓ cup cacao nibs or chocolate chips
- Put all ingredients in a saucepan until melted together.
- Place parchment paper in the bottom of a 9×13 pan, leaving an overhang for easy removal.
- Pour mixture in the pan and flatten. Press chocolate chips or cacao nibs into the top.
- Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until set. Lift out of pan and cut into squares. Store in fridge or freezer.
Ways to change it up:
Make the same recipe into balls instead of protein bars for a quick bite-size treat. You can also see our recipe for Wild Orange Power Bites for a different option. You can also add in coconut, dried apples, raisins, or use Chocolate TrimShake instead of Vanilla.
When it comes to smoothies, there are nearly endless ways to combine ingredients so that you’re not only drinking a glass of plain chocolate, vanilla, or orange TrimShake every day. Instead, add some fruit or essential oils to your blender.
1 banana, frozen
1 scoop Chocolate TrimShake
½ cup almond milk
- Blend all ingredients together until smooth.
Make it a banana nut muffin smoothie: use 1 scoop Vanilla TrimShake along with 1 banana, frozen. Add in 1 tablespoon almond butter, and 6–16 ounces water (add 1 ounce at a time until desired consistency is reached).
Replace the banana with berries: 1 scoop Vanilla TrimShake, 2 cups frozen mixed berries, 1 tablespoon walnuts, ½ cup almond milk or yogurt, 1 cup spinach, 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed, and 12 ounces water.
