Giving up sodas and sugary store-bought juices can be hard for Paleo converts, but there are still myriad ways to take in the benefits of a fruit smoothie or whole fruit juice blend. And if you’re bundling up and needing something to sip while you sit by the fire this time of year, there are also several suitable Paleo friendly coffee and hot cocoa options as well. Check out our extensive list of awesome Paleo drink recipes below!
Paleo Drink Recipes – Coffees and Cocoas
This Paleo latte is perfect for the holiday season with its use of thick pumpkin puree and delicious wintry spices like vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg. Maple syrup acts as a sweetener and the way Kristen makes a shredded coconut rim around the cup makes an amazing presentation! (Photo courtesy of Kristen from The Endless Meal.)
This cocoa recipe sets itself apart because it uses almond milk (most of the others use coconut milk which, drinking an entire glass, seems a little heavy for me). I personally love all things peppermint but if it’s not to your liking you can use the other ingredients as a base and customize it with another extract or flavor enhancer!

Paleo Drink Recipes – Hot and Iced Teas
This tea is AMAZING! The base is Rooibos, a popular red tea from South Africa – if you’ve never tried it, I highly recommend you do. Then, frozen cherries and goji berries are used to add some natural sweetness and tang. Cinnamon, lemon and ginger round out the healing properties of this amazing tea blend and a bit of honey is used as a sweetener but I might try it plain first as I usually like herbal and fruit teas just as they are. Instructions are provided for both stovetop and slow cooker preparation. (Thanks to Sylvie at Gourmande in the Kitchen for letting us use her photo!)
This ‘mocktail’ is not only refreshing and tasty, but is also touted as a great digestive aid and liver detox. Kelly breaks down the nutritional aspects and health benefits of each of the ingredients and also includes some links to find her favorite brands of green tea to use for the recipe.

Paleo Drink Recipes – Infused Waters and Spritzers
This spritzy infusion can be made to have more of a slushy texture if you opt to crush the ice. It sounds delicious even without the added sweetener, so try it first without and if you want it sweeter, remember to keep it Paleo with honey or maple syrup! (Karen granted permission to use the photo from Holistically Engineered.)
The honey and ginger remind me of a yummy herbal tea, but this is even better! It’s a sparkly peach drink with a dash of lime as well. Perfect for when peaches get back in season (how I miss them!). (Photo credit to Jacqueline from Livin’ the Crunchy Life. Thanks!)
If you’ve been swept up in the Vitamin Water craze, you need to check out this amazing homemade recipe! It is packed with vitamins and has amazing cleansing properties; not to mention that it is the perfect refresher for a hot day (or just a tired afternoon).

Top Paleo Juices and Juice Blends
I love this prickly pear because it was one of the first false cognates I learned when I studied Spanish. We learned that tuna is “atún” and “tuna” in Spanish really means this prickly pear! But I digress… If you can get your hands on this yummy and exotic cactus fruit, try this great limeade recipe (which I recommend testing first without the sweetener to see if it’s sweet enough for you.) Just don’t call it a tuna limeade! Ha! (Photo courtesy of Sarah Jane from The Fit Cookie.)
