Five Paleo/AIP Smoothies
Summertime and the living is easy, fish are jumping and the smoothies are fine! Ok, getting a little carried away. But, here are five great smoothies to try this spring and summer. These are clean, fresh, and full of flavor. We think you will be making these all the time! Do you have a favorite smoothie recipe? Let us know!
Need a boost in the afternoon? Forget those energy drinks filled with ingredients you cant pronounce. Make this delicious smoothie instead! Matcha is made from Green Tea and is known to promote a calming energy. Kale is popular because it is packed with vitamins. This delicious smoothie also has avocado for protein and banana to make it creamy and the Kiwi makes it sweet. This could be a good smoothie for a meal replacement or for breakfast. You could have all the ingredients ready to go, throw it all together in the blender before you head out the door and enjoy on your commute to work!
I have great memories from childhood of picking Raspberries on the way home from school. Consequently every time I eat them I am reminded of that time. The Avocado and Coconut Cream makes it smooth while the Raspberries and Orange Juice add sweetness. Great any time of the day.
How can you go wrong? Chocolate and strawberries are a match made in heaven. The addition of banana’s brings it all together in creamy chocolate strawberry perfection. Great for breakfast or anytime you need a delicious treat!
Blueberries are one of my favorite fruits. They have a bright freshness about them that I love. Did you know that Blueberries are a superfood? Paired with banana to make it creamy and a touch of lemon this is a great smoothie to have for breakfast.
But wait! The title of this post says that there are recipes for five smoothies. Where is the fifth? Well we saved the best for last. For all you organ-meat consuming, nutrient lovers out there we bring you Uncle Dave’s Liver Smoothie. Now, if you aren’t the squeamish type then you will have no problem with this smoothie. It actually tastes pretty good (from what I am told) but, some people, like me have a mental block since childhood when it comes to eating eating liver, especially raw. Take a look at the picture below. It looks creamy and delicious, right?
