Paleo Smoothie Recipes

I rarely drink smoothies but this is where you'll find those that I've created.

With how much sugar is consumed on a Standard American Diet (SAD), I can't recommend ever adding more sugar. And the same goes for those following a Paleo diet. That may sound harsh but if a smoothie has more fruit or sugar than you'd consume eating whole fruits, then it's simply too much.

How To Make A Paleo Smoothie

That said, if you're in the mood for a Paleo smoothie as a treat or want a quick drink to take on the go, below are some options.

Despite the recipes below, these are my general recommendations whenever creating a smoothie.

  • Create one that doesn't consist of all fruit.
  • Be sure that it is high in fat and includes organic greens like spinach, kale, parsley and other herbs.
  • Squeeze some fresh lemon or lime juice in and add avocado. Always add avocado.
  • Use a single fresh or frozen fruit as your sweetener.
  • Don't add additional sugars like honey or maple syrup.
  • Use water, coconut or almond milk to make sure it's liquid-y.
  • Finally, use ice to thicken.

Overall, make sure your smoothie consists of mostly veggies and fat. Following these tips will create a great high fat, low sugar Paleo smoothie with endless possibilities of flavors that will energize your day.
