For a quick, portable breakfast that you can take in the car on those late mornings, a smoothie is the perfect option. If you’re trying to follow a Paleo Meal Plan, you’ll be avoiding the dairy products that often serve as the base for smoothies, giving them a creamy consistency. Swap out the cow’s milk for coconut or almond milk, add your favorite fruits (and maybe even something green if you’re adventurous!), and you’ve got a to-go breakfast fit for a caveman!

Our Wake Up! Green Smoothie is packed to the brim with Vitamins A and C to help you stay healthy during the fall back-to-school season.

    I absolutely *love* green smoothies! Started making them a few months ago, and now I have one almost every day. The greens I use include raw spinach, kale, baby lettuces, and collard greens. You can hardly even taste them! I do include a small amount of dairy in my Paleo diet, so a typical smoothie recipe for me goes something like this: water, kefir, coconut milk, avocado, ground flax seed, banana, assorted berries, a sprinkle of stevia powder, and several handfuls of the “green stuff.” Better than any milkshake!

    My favorite green smoothie (made in a Hamilton Beach Personal blender) has 1/2 frozen banana, 3 Tbsp vanilla whey protein powder, 1/2 cup frozen mixed fruit, 1/2 cup almond milk, two handfuls of fresh spinach, and about 1/2 cup mini ice cubes or cold water. I used to make green smoothies in my Vita Mix (which I love) but found that I made so much — and then drank it all. It’s easier to control my portions using a small blender.

    I like to make a green smoothie with kale, pineapple, cream/milk/whatever I have in the fridge that’s a fluid, and a couple raw eggs. The raw egg yolks are the best part. I ate this every morning on vacation, and I wasn’t hungry until 2:00 pm, even though I was walking all over creation.
