I was asked today about Paleo smoothie options so thought I’d knock out a quick step by step guide.
Start with a base of coconut milk, almond milk or water
Add some fruit. I like to use frozen berries or frozen banana. The frozen bananas make the smoothie quite creamy. Just remember to peel them before freezing 😉 You could also use pineapple, mango, anything that’s in season. I normally use about a 3/4 cup for a 300ml smoothie.
(This step is optional but if you don’t add some protein, make sure you down this smoothie with a protein source of some sort)
Add your protein. I normally go for powdered egg whites. You could also use the frozen egg whites available in the freezer section of most supermarkets. Some people are cool with throwing in some raw free-range, organic eggs but some people are worried about the risks of Salmonella poisoning. The choice is yours. If you do use raw eggs, stick with good quality free-range, organic eggs.
Add your choice of fat. I like to throw in a big teaspoon of almond butter or ABC (Almond, Brazil, Cashew) Spread. You could use Flax or Coconut Oil, whatever you think will mix well and taste nice.
(Another optional step)
You can also add a huge array of flavourings. Honey, cacao nibs, cacao powder, herbs or spices like cinnamon etc. Use your imagination
So there you have it. 4 steps to almost an almost unlimited combination of Paleo Smoothie Recipes. Get creative and play around with it all.
