23 Healthy Paleo Avocado Smoothie Recipes [Includes AIP and Primal]

Louise Hendon | July 25

We love good smoothies, and these Paleo avocado smoothie recipes are amazing. Avocados are not only a great source of healthy fats, but they can add a ton of creaminess to your smoothie too. No need to use milk or cream for avocado smoothies (although if you are dairy-tolerant, then we do have some Primal avocado smoothie recipes below too).

If you’re on the Paleo autoimmune protocol (AIP), then we also have some great AIP avocado smoothie recipes below – just look for the [AIP] tag at the end of the recipe names.

Why do we love smoothies so much?
Paleo smoothies are fast and easy to make, so you can drink a nutritious breakfast in just 5 minutes. They’re also a simple way to eat more green leafy vegetables and healthy fats (like those in avocados). You just dump them into the blender and then drink.

Here are just a few of the Paleo Avocado Smoothie Recipes we’ve included:

Paleo Creamy Chicken and Mushrooms Recipe

Growing up, we had a lot of meals made with cream of mushroom soup. When in doubt, my mom just put cream of mushroom on it and called it a day. This recipe for Paleo creamy chicken and mushrooms reminds me of the meals I grew up with, but it’s a lot healthier! Cream of mushroom soup is loaded with sodium, dairy, and all kinds of additives. Yuck! Our mushroom sauce is lighter, dairy-free, and of course, made with whole ingredients only. The creamy sauce elevates ordinary chicken into something special and we can’t forget the cauli rice. After all, you need something to soak up all that extra sauce, so you can savor it down to the last drop!

Paleo Lemon Popsicles Recipe

Louise Hendon | July 10

Lemonade is the unofficial drink of summer, but too often, it’s sickly sweet, more like sugar water than lemonade. If you’re getting tired of lemonade with no lemon flavor, look no further for a refreshing treat than our Paleo lemon popsicles. These four ingredient frozen treats are the antidote to overly sweet lemon desserts and drinks. They are packed full of lemony flavor, with both lemon juice and lemon zest. A little bit of honey provides the perfect counterpoint to tart lemon without the sickly sweetness of sugar. Make them in the evening, when it’s not too hot to turn the stove on. Then chill them overnight and watch them disappear the next day!
