Paleo Smoothies

Answered on August 19, 2014

Does anyone have any paleo friendly smoothie recipes (particularly breakfast) they would share? I've found a few online that use raw eggs and regardless of what the site author says, I don't feel comfortable eating raw eggs.

I agree! I have a couple dozen recipes on the website and many more are on there way. You could always buy the ebook too :)

Add some grass fed whey protein powder and you're good to go - half banana/frozen strawberries or blueberries or blackberries as well If no on the coconut milk there's always goat mil and/or goat yogurt and if you want to fly on the wild side every 2 weeks or so substitute some fresh beef/lamb liver for the protein powder.

There are those who eat Primal on this site as well, so when I post I try to encompass all. Also, they're flexible so simply sub another liquid. The fun of food, flexibility and adaptability! :) It's that whole "one sock doesn't fit all" and every body is different - what works for one.. won't for another.

I didn't think cow's milk was on the paleo diet?

I like the same, without the cocoa, and with a half an avocado. Extra creamy and delicious!

I do the same shake but instead of ice I freeze my bananas so I don't get those annoying ice chunks the blender can never get. Trust me it's the best way to go! I also add berries but other than that same shake :)

I was wondering, were your eggs pasture-raised eggs, or just regular ol' eggs? I'm surprised at the odds you got sick twice, and maybe a little more wary of my own raw egg consumption. :)

Smoothie ideas! To whey or not to whey, is up to you :)

Green tea, mango, goat milk

Strawberry, or mixed berries, lemon, mint, cow milk

Almond butter, coconut, cocoa, coconut milk

Broil pineapple and puree with coconut, fresh ginger, coconut milk

Banana, cashew butter, cow milk - I add a little lemon juice

Avocado, lime juice, honeydew melon, cow milk - I've also done this one with coconut water and it's tastycakes

Notes: More here in a different post from last summer - the above are my answers from that, amended slightly. Also definitely use the search function with "smoothie" as the key word - loads of great stuff in there that should fix you right up. Cheers!

Blended berries are fine for a dessert-ish smoothie, but if I'm going to make a meal replacement shake, it's got to be full fat coconut milk, unsweetened cocoa poweder, half a banana, and ice. Simple, yet tasty and fairly filling as far as liquid calories go.

For me smoothies should be the equivalent of a "V8". Throw in a couple of carrots, romaine lettuce, cucumber, kale, spinach, etc, add in fruit to make it palatable and enough water/ice to make it churn in a blender (..you might need something like a Vitamix if you want to prepare such a smoothie everyday). The end result: a full day's worth of vegetables in one large (1 liter) drink. If it tastes too salad-like then add a bit more fruit.

There are a plethora of other protein options for your smoothie. If you're not into dairy-based powders, you could try hemp-based powders or even some made from dried eggs. I have no experience using these, but I know I used to see them at the health-food store. Adding nuts or nut butters to your smoothie is a great way to add flavor and protein. Different nuts add different flavors, so have fun experimenting. If you're so inclined, tofu can add creamy, flavor-neutral protein to your smoothie (I know, I know, soy is the devil).

All organic, 1 Cup or more frozen Kale, 3 leaves romaine, fistful of parsley, small carrot, 3 celery sticks, 1/2 (or more) cup Cabbage (green, red, Napa, bok choy etc). 2 Scoops whey protein, 3 raw eggs, 1/2 teaspoon of the following powders...Turmeric, Cocao, Ginger, 1/4 teaspoon of Cayenne, black pepper, Kelp powder, pinch of Himalayan salt, 1/2 cup full fat FAGE yougut, heaping tablespoon of sour or regular cream, sometimes 1/2 Avocado, heaping Tablespoon of Coconut oil & Cod liver oil, and Olive oil. Occasionally, 8-10 frozen bluberries, and/or 3 cubes of frozen pineapple. Sure, it's not strickly Paleo, but after having one of these, I could not eat the rest of the day and still feel fine.

I did the raw egg smoothie...salmonella poisoning...twice...so now I follow Dr. Mary Eades' recipe for home-pasteurization. Get some water boiling and dip your eggs in for just 45 seconds. Haven't been ill doing it this way.

So I use 3 extra-large eggs, 1/2 c full fat coconut milk, 1/2 c ice and one cup of berries or instead of berries 1/2 banana and 1 heaping tsp cocoa (the good stuff). If you have a Vita-mix, the book has recipes. Just don't use the amounts of fruit they recommend or you'll have an insulin surger but it gives good combo ideas.

Every weekend I stock up on fruits for the week and kinda try different combinations to keep things interesting each week. I'll normally use half an orange, frozen banana and a scoop of ground up flax seed for fiber. Those 3 things are my base ingrediants. Then every week I change up the extra additional ingredients. So last week mangos were on sale so I used slices of that. This week pineapples and strawberries we on sale so I used that and so on.

I'm curious to hear what others do with their shakes so keep them coming.
