I often forget just how refreshing and delicious peaches are, and they are fantastic in smoothies like this one. The avocado and nuts in this recipe also add in more fat to slow the absorption of the sugars. And if you want to add in some extra protein after your workout, choose a whey protein powder that doesn’t have added ingredients like this one.
I know some of you are into CrossFit, HIIT, Spartan racing, weight-lifting, and various other intense forms of exercise – so I came up with this raw egg shake especially for you – it’s packed with protein, fat, a small amount of carbohydrates, and a dash of caffeine (which you can omit if you prefer).
As always, when making anything with raw eggs, be careful of food safety – I would wash the egg shells and then wash my hands after cracking the eggs. I would also make sure to use very fresh eggs, and I wouldn’t use any cracked or dirty eggs. I know I’m a bit of a freak when it comes to food safety, but I really hate food poisoning so that little bit of extra effort seems worth it to me.
This paleo smoothie is seriously delicious. Enjoy for an easy and fast breakfast or brunch meal. I like adding coconut oil to the smoothie to help slow the digestion of the sugars in the fruits and carrots. Coconut oil will also help you to stay full for longer.
My friend was telling about an amazing vietnamese avocado shake and so I had to look it up and make one!
Sinh To Bo is a pretty easy, but it is traditionally made with sweetened condensed milk, making it not very Paleo or healthy.
My Paleo version of this delicious drink cuts down on the sugar and uses coconut milk instead. I hope you enjoy it!
If you’re a fan of smoothies, but not a fan of eating meat, then this is a great recipe for getting more protein into your diet. The raw egg makes the smoothie super creamy (it’s as if you added in cream!).
The idea for this recipe came to me after seeing Mark’s Primal Egg Coffee which uses raw egg yolks to make coffee creamy and nutritious.
Note: Always make sure your eggs are fresh!
This strawberry banana mint smoothie recipe is AIP-compliant (autoimmune Paleo protocol) and dairy-free.
Smoothies are such an easy breakfast recipe and generally healthier than juicing (we’re not huge fans of juicing – see this article about why juicing isn’t great for you).
I didn’t have any fresh mint handy when I was making this recipe, but I remembered having mint tea leaves in the cupboard. And so this blueberry mint smoothie recipe was born.
The avocado and coconut milk help to make this smoothie extra creamy despite being dairy-free.
(It’s also AIP – autoimmune Paleo protocol compliant.)
This smoothie is super filling and AIP-compliant (autoimmune Paleo protocol) – it’s also an amazing way to get extra greens into your diet. I hope you enjoy it.

Whether it’s a refreshing cool-down or a winter warming up that you’re in need of, this list has it all: smoothies, coffees, cocoas, teas (including iced teas), infused waters, juices and more!!
This week has been exhausting. Blogher12 took a lot out of me last weekend (read the post here), and this weekend (starting this morning actually), it’s the Ancestral Health Symposium over in Boston! I am sadly not going, but my better half is, so I’ll be getting updates regularly!
There’s a lot of news that I want to share (e.g., I got engaged last week), and there are a lot of things “in the works” (including a Free App in addition to my already Free iPad e-book) as well as a bunch of recipes I want to put up, but I’m going to start with this simple Primal Toad smoothie from the Toadally Primal Smoothies book. It’s FREE from Primaltoad.com so you can get the recipe there.
It makes a really quick and thick smoothie! I followed the recipe exactly (excepted that I used chocolate protein powder and added in some vanilla extract instead.
Great way to start the morning!
It’s so easy to start the morning with one of these, and I’ve been adding some potato starch into it to test out the resistant starch ideas that have been spreading recently (read this article to find out more).

This fruity and delicious treat is great because it can be transformed – first starting as a smoothie and then using the leftovers to make a batch of popsicles! As a smoothie, Alina recommends serving with a frittata or scrambled eggs in the morning. As a popsicle, it can be a great snack or dessert for the whole family.
