I can’t think of many things that are better than a list of Paleo Smoothies Recipes. I mean these are great recipes for everyone to enjoy. My kids love smoothies and it is a really easy way to get a lot of good healthy fruits and vegetables in a child or an adult for that matter. Smoothies are also so quick and easy to make and you can take them with you to work or wherever if you need to.
When I make smoothies I always make more than I alone can eat for one breakfast. I just stick what’s leftover in the fridge and it tastes just as good the next day. That makes it even quicker and easier the second day That’s no time spent preparing breakfast at all. Sometimes I pour the leftovers into popsicle molds and my children love the popsicles. They are usually gone by the next morning! What a healthy popsicle idea.
You can pretty much experiment making smoothies and be okay, but why bother. It is so nice to have a quick and simple recipe that guarantees the balance and flavor will be there because someone else figured it out for you.
Paleo smoothies recipes don’t just have fruit in them though. Plenty of breakfast smoothies have vegetables in them and all sorts of other things. Some of these smoothie recipes are made with some interesting ingredients like carrots or beets. Just remember what my mother used to tell me, “don’t knock it until you’ve tried it”. Sounds delicious to me.
One of the biggie ingredients in Paleo smoothies is either almond milk or coconut milk. Almond milk and coconut milk are great, but you have to be careful and always buy unsweetened almond milk or unsweetened coconut milk. Most of these recipes here specify unsweetened almond or coconut milk, but not all of them.
Make sure you get unsweetened because if almond and coconut milk is sweetened that means it has some kind of sugar sweetener in it and we can’t have that. Even better yet, a lot of these recipes don’t have any kind of milk in them at all.
A smoothie for breakfast sounds really good to me; I need more variety in my life. Smoothies are a great way to get a lot of fruits and vegetables in you quickly and without much work. Give these Paleo smoothie recipes a try and you will be glad you did.
Which smoothie from this list do you want to try the first? Make sure you look at all of them. There are some great combinations of ingredients that I’m sure you have never thought of. You are going to have to check them out.
Get your blender out and enjoy!
BlendersYears ago I went through three blenders in a year. It was getting expensive and I was frustrated that they weren't very powerful. About that time, Costco started selling Vitamix blenders and doing demos. I splurged and bought one. It's been very worth the money. For one thing, it's been at least five years and it's going strong and it makes the best smoothies. They are so smooth. I've seen them at a lot of restaurants and on TV cooking shows all the time.

Paleo Smoothies Recipes
1. Tropical Green Smoothie – My Natural Family
Spinach – Banana – Orange – Pineapple – Avocado – Coconut Milk
The best part of smoothies is how easy they are to make. Most people can handle tossing fruits and vegetables into a blender. Make sure to actually measure the greens. I like to use the coconut milk from a can because I think it has the best flavor but you can use it from a carton if you want to. The avocado is my secret ingredient. It helps keep things from separating and makes it smooth and creamy without any weird avocado taste. I had a couple drops of essential oil to make it refreshing and to add flavor too.
2. Blueberry Banana Chia Smoothie – Beaming Baker
Chia Seeds – Almond Milk – Bananas – Blueberries
Here is a refreshing banana blueberry smoothie with just four ingredients. It’s sweetened with fruit only, packed with antioxidants and bursting with chia seed goodness. It’s packed with blueberries and it’s the perfect dessert or snack since it’s super easy to make. I love the color since it reminds me of spring which is my favorite time of year.
3. Pink Grapefruit Green Smoothie – Get Inspired Everyday
Pineapple Chunks – Grapefruit – Avocado – Baby Spinach
Grapefruit and pineapple are a great combination and they’re perfect for green smoothies. Grapefruit and pineapple are really good at cutting through the green flavor of the spinach. Since they are both really strong flavors you can add a lot more greens than you normally could. Yet it’s still sweet and tastes wonderful. You can use any sweet grapefruit you’d like but pink grapefruit was used here which just happens to be the same thing as ruby red grapefruit. Sometimes there is confusion about that. If the grapefruit tastes a little bitter you could either peel or cut the white stuff off since that’s what makes it bitter. Or you could juice it a little just to get the fruit out of the white outside peel, keep the pulp. Anyone know what that’s called? I’m talking about the white stuff that’s left after you peel the grapefruit. The part you always eat on a orange but not sometimes for a grapefruit.
4. Black Raspberry Vanilla Smoothie – Paleo Newbie
This is a quick pick me up for breakfast or after a workout. It makes a great in between meal snack too. It’s packed with nutritious antioxidants, fresh berries with really rich flavors. It’s refreshing any time of day. It’s totally guilt free since there are not any refined sugar in it. Whip it up and drink it. I wouldn’t add the protein powder since it’s really hard to find a true Paleo protein powder on the market.
5. Peach Coconut Smoothie – Cook Eat Paleo
Coconut Milk – Ice – Peaches – Lemon Zest
This is what I call a “peaches and cream” smoothie. The combination of coconut milk, fresh peaches and a hint of lemon are really good together. It has a milkshake-like consistency. If you use a Vitamix it will turn out more velvety smooth that it will if you make it in a regular blender.
6. Glowing Berry Beet Smoothie – Get Inspired Everyday
Mixed Berries – Beet – Bananas – Kale – Fresh Ginger – Coconut Water – Ice Cubes
I hope the word “beet” doesn’t scare you off. I love beets, especially in a fresh salad. Did you know that beets are a nutrition powerhouse? They fight inflammation, have anti-cancer properties, and are rich in vitamin C and B6, potassium, manganese and folate. They are rich in fiber and good carbs. You could add the beet greens in too which has more iron than spinach. I like cooked beet green better than spinach. The best part about beets is the intense color which they add to this smoothie despite all the green colors it has it turns out an amazing bright purple/pink/magenta color.
7. Strawberry Lemonade Smoothie – Wholesomelicious
Almond Milk – Strawberries – Lemon Juice – Lemon Zest – Coconut Oil – Spinach Leaves
Tired of bananas in your smoothies? Well, this recipe doesn’t have bananas. This one is kind of like drinking a strawberry lemonade. If you’re making it for the kids you could add a bit of honey but if you like yours a bit more tart just follow the recipe. It’s healthy, right? It’s a strawberry lemonade without all the sugar. Since this is good for you, you could make it anytime you want!
8. Pineapple Blueberry Smoothie – North South Blonde
Pineapple Chunks – Blueberries – Almond Milk – Banana – Chia Seeds
Here is a tropical drink made with blueberries and pineapple that you can make and love all year round. It nourishes your body an is full of antioxidants for optimal health. It will help hydrate your skin, strengthen your nails and hair and give you more energy. It’ll help you feel and look your best. Isn’t it pretty, it’ll help make you pretty inside and outside.
9. Easy Banana, Peach & Date Smoothie – Eye Candy Popper
Banana – Peaches – Dates – Almond Milk – Hemp Hearts
This date and peach smoothie is so delicious and refreshing. It’s easy to make for beginners and it’s a great way to get some healthy foods inside those picky eaters. It can be a quick on-the-go breakfast or even a nice treat for dessert. You could add a handful of spinach to add more nutrients if you would like to. The dates add all the sweetness you would ever want, a few go a long way. The hemp hearts give it that creamy texture. I don’t like to add ice because I don’t like my drinks too cold. I think when the milk is refrigerated and the fruit is frozen it is enough to make it cold enough. Plus, did you know that cold drinks are harder for your digestive system. Your digestive system has to put a lot of energy into warming them up to your body temperature before they can be digested.
