Ingredients: chicken stock, button mushrooms (or other mushrooms), kale, romaine lettuce, tilapia filets, shrimp/prawns, mussels, coconut cream, fish sauce, salt.

This is one of my favorite Paleo recipes. This is a warming, hearty and filling soup is ideal for a cold day. This is also a totally versatile recipe as you can substitute the veggies with others of your choice e.g. instead of button mushrooms, why not try shiitake instead? You can also use different seafood if you prefer, so if you are not keen on tilapia, just swap it out for another meaty fish.

Fish Ceviche

Click here for the recipe.
Ingredients: cod (or halibut, red snapper, or another firm white fish), red onion, Serrano peppers, lime juice, lemon juice, sea salt, Sriracha hot chili sauce, cilantro, avocado.

Ceviche is an amazing concept where you marinade raw fish in citrus juice, usually lime, and it basically ‘cooks’ the fish without heat! This recipe works best with a firm fish such as cod or snapper, but any meaty fish works. The fish should be marinated for an hour then stirred around to ensure even coverage, and then marinated for 8 to 10 hours or preferably overnight and served in lettuce wraps.

Once the rolls are ready, serve with a Thai sweet chili sauce and you have a magnificent appetizer.

Ingredients: eggs, coconut cream, carrots, bacon bits, bacon fat for greasing.

An ideal recipe for an appetizer or even for breakfast, these egg muffins are full of flavor with the addition of the bacon bits.

Mango and lime is such an excellent combination that you are sure to enjoy this dish. It is an ideal way to use up leftover cooked chicken and it can be chopped or pulled into shreds if you prefer.

Don’t worry if you have never attempted to make sushi before or used nori to wrap this up. It is not difficult; it just takes a little bit of practice. Nori and other edible seaweeds are also remarkably high in protein.

Raw Garden Vegetable Soup

Ingredients: cucumber, onion, fresh peppermint leaves, fresh parsley leaves, tomatoes, extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper.

This soup recipe must be one of the easiest and quickest ever. No need to chop a load of veggies; simply place them all in a blender then chill and serve.

Paleo Coconut Tuna Fish Cakes

Coconut Tuna Fish Cakes (Gluten-Free, Paleo)

Click here for the recipe.
Ingredients: tuna (or salmon), fresh basil, jalapeno, eggs, coconut flour, coconut flakes, olive oil, salt, coconut oil.

Fish cakes have been a popular dish for many years as they are delicious but not too heavy as an appetizer. Once prepared, they can be stored in the fridge for a few days. Also, if you prefer, you can use salmon instead of tuna, as they are both meaty fish. Serve with a tomato relish or a sweet chili dip or simply with a green salad. It’s perfect for a healthy Paleo lunch.

Indian Spiced Parsnip Curly Fries

Click here for the recipe.
Ingredients: parsnips, curry powder, cayenne pepper, ginger powder, cinnamon, sea salt, olive oil.

These Paleo curly fries only take a few minutes to prepare, especially if you use a spiralizer. The earthy flavor of the parsnips is lightened with the use of the Indian spices, and the results are amazing! Also ideal as a side, this could be a great way to ‘hide’ vegetables so your kids will eat them too.

Rosemary Lime Salmon Skewers

Click here for the recipe.

Salmon is a really versatile and nutritious protein to use in Paleo recipes. And this recipe is a lovely way to serve salmon and is so quick and easy to prepare.

Grilled Peaches and Prosciutto Salad

Click here for the recipe.
Ingredients: spring lettuce mix of your choice, peach, prosciutto, extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper.

The idea of peaches with ham just makes your mouth water! If you can find peach-flavored balsamic vinegar, this adds a special zing to the dish, but a good quality aged balsamic is perfectly fine. This is a light salad, ideal for summer and it can be tweaked to your own design by choosing your favorite salad leaves and maybe even trying it with white peaches instead of yellow.

Ingredients: chicken breasts, onion, celery, cashews, raisins, mayo, curry powder, salt, lemon, coconut oil.

I’ve always loved curried chicken and so this is another one of my favorite Paleo recipes. This curried chicken can be served on its own or why not load it onto lettuce leaves, or wrap it in deli turkey? This recipe gives you mouthwatering creamy curried chicken to be enjoyed any time. As an alternative, you could also try using chopped dried apricot instead of raisins.

Bacon Wrapped Dates Stuffed With Cashew Cheese

Click here for the recipe.
Ingredients: pitted dates, bacon, raw cashews, coconut oil.

Bacon wrapped dates have traditionally been used as party food for a long time, but these are healthier and dairy-free because you use the cashew cheese instead of dairy cheese. When cooking these in the oven, try to use a baking tray with sides as the fat from the bacon tends to run out. Like a lot of other fruits cooked in an oven, the dates tend to be super-hot, so allow to cool slightly before serving.

Butter chicken is a classic Indian recipe, much loved by many for years. This recipe gives a healthier but very tasty alternative.

The addition of the mushrooms makes this a delicious and hearty dish with a deep heat and a lovely creamy sauce.

The tahini sauce is smooth and creamy and gives the chance to try a slightly different flavor to the normal grill accompaniments like ketchup and mayo.

Ingredients: chicken breasts, ghee or coconut oil, coconut cream, chicken broth, carrots, celery, tomatoes, curry powder or garam masala, fresh ginger, cilantro, garlic, salt.

Garlicky Chicken Over Spaghetti Squash

This dish looks as if it came straight from the Mediterranean! With all the associated color from the tomatoes and olives, this makes an ideal celebration dish or a welcome alternative for a dinner party.

Curry and chicken together are such a classic combination. This is a perfect dish to share with others at a get-together or have for a meal at home.

This is a lovely dish with different textures from the snow peas and bell peppers. If you can find boneless chicken thighs, these have a stronger flavor, but use chicken breast if you can’t find them. Be careful if you are using soy sauce – go for the gluten-free tamari soy sauce instead for a healthier, Paleo version.

Sage and Cinnamon Chicken

Click here for the recipe.
Ingredients: chicken drumsticks, butter or ghee, sage, cinnamon, salt and pepper.

Adding cinnamon to a chicken dish gives it a true depth of flavor.

One tip with the etouffee is to taste often to allow you to adjust the spice levels to suit your personal palate. One suggestion is to serve this with cauliflower rice or a baked sweet potato. If you tolerate spice well, then load on the hot sauce and cayenne pepper for this Paleo recipe.

One of the biggest advantages of this dish is that you get to keep some of the wonderful duck fat to be used for other dishes!

Click here for the recipe.
Ingredients: ground turkey breast, roasted red peppers, garlic, Kalamata olives, sun dried tomatoes, dried oregano, salt and pepper.

The true flavors of the Mediterranean come through in this Paleo dish, thanks to the olives and sun-dried tomatoes. Often turkey burgers can turn out quite dry, so if you are worried about this then you can add a little olive oil to the ground meat before cooking. These patties can be frozen so are ideal for batch-cooking, but it is easier if you layer them with greaseproof paper before freezing so they can be easily separated. This recipe also works in miniature for kids’ parties!

These muffins look so delicious that they will make an excellent option to introducing the family to healthy eating! They are flourless, so ideal for people who eat gluten-free and Paleo, and they make wonderful snacks when friends drop in for coffee. The dates give richness to the flavor and the avocado helps to keep them moist. One tip is to use silicone muffin cases as they make it easier to remove the muffins.

Click here for the recipe.
Ingredients: blueberries, coconut milk, raw honey, lemon juice, salt.

Blueberries are just packed with flavor, making these ice pops a great choice for a sunny day or as a light and refreshing snack.

At last, a birthday cake suitable for people who do not want to go down the shop-bought, sugar-stuffed route! This chocolate cake is quite easy to make, although the frosting is temperature-sensitive, but just follow the recipe and you will have a fantastic cake. You can decorate the cake with anything you like – we used strawberries here, but you could use any fruit, or sprinkle on some shredded coconut. Lining the cake tins with parchment makes them easy to lift out to cool and stops them sticking so it is worth the effort.

Raw Carrot Cake

Click here for the recipe.
Ingredients: raisins, walnuts, carrots, unsweetened shredded coconut, coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, coconut manna, lemon juice, non-dairy milk of your choice.

This is such a versatile recipe, as you can use whatever dried fruit and whatever amounts you like. If you decide to use raisins, then one tip is to soak them in some tea beforehand, as this makes them swell up and take on a wonderful flavor. You can also use this mixture to make one complete cake instead of individual ones. The frosting can be piped to make them even more attractive, or simply spread it on with a spatula or palette knife.

Apple Pie

paleo apple pie recipe

Click here for the recipe.
Ingredients: almond flour, chia flour, egg, coconut oil, vanilla extract, baking soda, salt, apples, raw honey, coconut flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves.

Traditionally a favorite with many families, this lattice-topped pie would look good on any table! The filling is spiced and juicy and the sweetness can be altered by using different varieties of apple. Granny Smiths are commonly used but can be a little tart, so try Gala or a sweeter variety of your choice. You will find the pastry is quite easily ripped, so place it between two sheets of parchment when rolling it out – this also helps when placing the pastry in the pie dish.

Paleo Lemon Macaroons

Click here for the recipe.
Ingredients: egg whites, maple syrup, kosher salt, vanilla extract, lemon zest and juice, coconut flakes, dark chocolate chips, coconut oil.

This Paleo recipe is quite quick to make, but the results are amazing! Sweet and sticky with a real lemon kick, these little treats make an ideal way to brighten up a tea party. You could decorate them with shredded coconut instead if you don’t want more lemon on top, but the zest lights up these bite-size macaroons. If your mixture is a bit too dry and you think they might be too crumbly, simply add in a little more maple syrup.

Chocolate-Glazed Chocolate Donuts

Click here for the recipe.
Ingredients: large green plantain, eggs, bittersweet chocolate, lard, palm shortening or ghee, ground vanilla bean, baking soda, salt.

These doughnuts definitely don’t look gluten, grain and sugar-free – in fact they look totally indulgent. This recipe uses plantain as its base, cutting out the need for flour of any type, and you are in charge of making them as sweet as you like by altering the percentage of sweetness in the glaze. A box of these would make a fabulous gift for a friend or family member too! Perhaps it’s a good way to explain to them that Paleo recipes can be super tasty too.

Raw Paleo Banana Cream Cheesecake

Click here for the recipe.
Ingredients: raw pecans, unsweetened shredded coconut, medjool dates, sea salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, bananas, raw cashews/cashew pieces, coconut oil, ghee, maple syrup, lemon, vanilla extract, coconut cream, vanilla bean, stevia.

This cheesecake would make a really impressive dessert for a dinner party, as it looks so indulgent. Bananas are a great source of magnesium and are easy to eat and digest for people with gut issues, and they are also enjoyed by kids, so this dessert would be good for a child’s party too. It is sweet and creamy and the grated nutmeg tastes amazing as a topping. One tip for the base – use the back of a dessert spoon to press the ingredients into the tin and this helps smooth out the mixture and press them into the edges.

Fudgy Paleo Skillet Brownie

Click here for the recipe.
Ingredients: coconut oil, dark chocolate chips, banana, salt, vanilla extract, eggs, tapioca flour, coconut flour.

When you read this recipe, don’t panic about the banana – it does the job of sweetening the mixture but doesn’t give a banana flavor. Brownies are designed to be fudgy in the middle and these ones don’t disappoint. They are chocolatey and soft and no-one will be able to tell that they are actually paleo. You could serve these with paleo ice cream or fresh berries, but they taste just as good on their own! Allow them to cool after cooking if you can!

Pecan Pie Cookies

Click here for the recipe.
Ingredients: medjool dates, pecan halves, maple syrup, sea salt.

Cookies, especially homemade ones, are a fantastic snack or to serve when friends drop in.

The dates provide all the sweetness you will need for this recipe so there is no need to add any other sweetener, and the cookies can be stored in the refrigerator. They can also be frozen and kept for use in the future.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Click here for the recipe.
Ingredients: almond flour, coconut flour, finely shredded unsweetened coconut, vanilla extract, raw honey, eggs, ghee, chocolate chips, salt.

We recommend that these cookies should not be made too often as they are so tempting! The smell of homemade chocolate chip cookies can make anyone’s mouth water. Chocolate and coconut are amazing partners and these cookies would make a perfect gift for a friend. When you take the tray out of the oven, the cookies will still be a bit soft, so leave them on the tray to cool for a while and harden slightly before you try to lift them. This is definitely another one of my favorite Paleo recipes.

Boston Cream Pie Cupcake Bites

Click here for the recipe.
Ingredients: egg yolks, raw honey, coconut palm sugar, arrowroot starch/flour, pink himalayan salt, coconut cream/milk, vanilla, blanched almond flour, baking powder, ghee or butter, eggs, chocolate chips.

These little bites are sandwiched together with a vanilla cream and topped with chocolate ganache which makes them look so indulgent and appealing that they would impress any guest. Vanilla and chocolate are perfect together and, although this recipe requires a bit of work, the results are definitely worth the effort! One little tip to remember is that it is always better to use vanilla extract rather than essence as you never can tell what additives the essence is hiding.

Paleo Berry Jello

Click here for the recipe.
Ingredients: strawberries, blueberries, gelatin.

There can’t be many people who don’t like jello, whether they are 9 or 90. As kids, jello was a staple dessert, although we did not realize that it is also healthy when it is homemade. Gelatin is a natural extract that provides the benefit of adding strength to hair and nails. In this recipe you can use any fruit you like, although berries are ideal as the fruit is the only source of sweetness in this dish. Because you are using fruit puree, the texture resembles mousse rather than traditional jello, making it a lighter dessert overall.

Paleo Coconut Bliss Dark Chocolate Bar

Paleo Coconut Bliss Dark Chocolate Bar Recipe

Click here for the recipe.
Ingredients: coconut milk, cacao powder, vanilla extract, raw honey, coconut sugar, salt.

To look at these bars you would not believe that they are dairy-free, as they are creamy and chocolatey.

You might be surprised at the addition of salt, but chocolate and salt are also good together and it adds a different dimension to the flavor.

Whoopie Pies

Click here for the recipe.
Ingredients: blanched almond flour, sea salt, baking soda, non-sweetened cocoa powder, honey (or other sweetener), vanilla, eggs, cinnamon, ginger (dried), allspice, nutmeg, cloves.

These little pies have their roots in Amish tradition and are sandwiched together using a creamy or marshmallow filling. The spiced version is packed with all the flavors associated with Thanksgiving or Christmas, such as cinnamon and ginger, and would make a great addition to the festive table. For the chocolate version, stevia could be used instead of honey, but the level of sweetness is totally up to you.

Lemon Bars

Click here for the recipe.
Ingredients: almond flour, tapioca flour, raw honey, ghee or coconut oil, lemon, eggs, fresh lemon juice.

The filling in these bars has a smooth and creamy texture with a wonderful sweet and tangy lemon hit, sitting on a crumbly base. They are sweet and delicious and go well with coffee or tea. If you don’t have tapioca flour then you can substitute arrowroot, which works just as well. You can also experiment with the flavor by using lime instead, or mixing lemon and lime together for a really refreshing taste. And why not take some of these to work and show your colleagues just how delicious Paleo recipes can be.

Ginger Snap Pumpkin Butter Cookie Sandwiches

Click here for the recipe.
Ingredients: almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, ground cinnamon, ground ginger, salt, coconut oil, maple sugar, vanilla extract, eggs, raw pecans, pumpkin puree, maple syrup, chocolate chips.

The ginger and cinnamon in these Paleo cookies gives a warming yet gentle spice, which is delicious when combined with the flavor of the pumpkin butter. They look so good with their frizzle of chocolate over the top. If you don’t have a cookie cutter then don’t worry – you can use a spice jar lid or shot glass to give you cookies of the correct size. Allow them to cool for a while before you try to move them, otherwise they may break.

Banana Cream Pie

Click here for the recipe.
Ingredients: almond flour, salt, cinnamon, baking soda, coconut oil, coconut cream, bananas, vanilla stevia, vanilla extract.

The creamy filling in this pie is made even better by using a mashed banana to add sweetness and it means you can go easy on the amount of stevia you need. Stevia can actually be bitter if you use too much, so this is the ideal solution. It is best to wait until you are just about ready to serve before adding the sliced bananas on top as they can discolor quite quickly. This pie can be stored in the fridge – if there is any left!

Pumpkin Pie

Click here for the recipe.
Ingredients: blanched almond flour, arrowroot powder, ghee or butter, sea salt, eggs, vanilla extract, pumpkin, coconut milk, ground cinnamon, ground ginger, ground cloves, raw honey.

As you know, pumpkin pie is traditionally served at holiday time, but it can be made at any time! The filling is smooth and unctuous and the crust is crumbly and sweet, making this pie perfect for any guests who eat gluten-free. When you remove the seeds from the pumpkin, don’t throw them away! They can be roasted and eaten as nutritious snacks later. To stop the edges of the crust from burning you can cover them with strips of foil, although many people like the darker pastry – it has a rustic look!

Coconut Butter Balls Dipped In Dark Chocolate

Paleo Coconut Butter Balls Dipped in Dark Chocolate Recipe

Click here for the recipe.
Ingredients: coconut butter, raw honey, vanilla extract, dark chocolate, unsweetened shredded coconut.

These little bite-size balls would make a perfect gift for a friend, as they look so professional.

The taste of chocolate can be lost when it is refrigerated, so when you are preparing to serve these butter balls remember to take them out to come back to room temperature first.

Paleo Lemon Date Laddu, A Raw Dessert

Click here for the recipe.
Ingredients: pitted Medjool dates, sliced almonds, Meyer lemon zest and juice, vanilla extract, coarse sea salt, unsweetened coconut flakes.

With its roots in Indian cuisine, this recipe has got to be one of the fastest and easiest ever.

Medjool dates are the best ones to use for making these as they are of the highest quality. With no cooking involved at all you can whip up a batch of these laddu in a matter of minutes.

Pumpkin Pie Milkshake

Click here for the recipe.
Ingredients: frozen banana, pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, almond milk.

You end up with a dessert that is satisfyingly sweet, creamy from the almond milk and with a spiced note, making it good enough to serve to any guest. This is also a vegan recipe so it is a great option for entertaining vegan and Paleo friends.

Paleo Chocolate Mousse, An Avocado Dessert

Click here for the recipe.
Ingredients: avocados, coconut milk, vanilla extract, honey, cacao powder, Meyer lemon juice, coarse sea salt, cayenne pepper.

Click here to download our 11 favorite Paleo recipes.

As avocado has such a smooth texture, it makes an ideal ingredient to use in desserts like these. The mousse has a creamy feel and looks deliciously indulgent, making it a great choice for serving at dinner parties. You may think it strange to put salt in a dessert, but chocolate and salt go really well. Also, adding the cayenne pepper might make you think that this dessert is spicy, but the cayenne just gives a boost to the flavors without the heat.

Coconut Flour Cake With Coconut Frosting

Click here for the recipe.
Ingredients: eggs, coconut milk, honey, vanilla extract, coconut extract, orange extract, coconut flour, baking soda, sea salt, coconut oil, coconut butter.

Please don’t panic when you see that this recipe calls for 12 eggs – it’s just that coconut flour is much more absorbent than other flours, so you need the extra moisture. If you are a fan of coconut then this cake will surely become a favorite for celebrations or just with a cup of tea. This cake does not involve using any refined sugar, as its sweetness comes from honey. This means you can avoid the family suffering the ‘sugar rush’ that normally follows from eating cake. But as with any Paleo recipes that are sweetened, make sure you don’t overeat them!

Lemon Tart

Click here for the recipe.
Ingredients: almond meal, coconut flour, salt, baking soda, coconut oil, maple syrup, egg, vanilla extract, coconut cream, lemon juice, lemon zest.

Lemon tart has long been a favorite with many people who enjoy the smooth texture and zingy taste of the lemon centre. This tart will still have a little wobble in the middle once it has been cooked, so it is best left in the fridge overnight to allow it to set completely. Also, if you like lemon but don’t really like the zest, simply leave it out. If you think the edges of the tart case will burn when re-cooking, you can cover them with a strip of foil before putting back in the oven.

Dairy Free Coconut Pudding

Click here for the recipe.
Ingredients: coconut milk, egg yolks, honey (or 6 Tbsp powdered Swerve for low carb), vanilla extract, grassfed beef gelatin.

Adding gelatin into Paleo recipes like this one is a fantastic way to get more of this healthy ingredient into your Paleo diet. It can be quite difficult finding desserts to feed the family when one or more has an allergy or health issue that means they can’t have dairy. This can be even harder when the sufferers are kids. Well, gelatin-based puddings are a great solution. Kids and adults love the smooth texture of this sweet dessert and, even if someone is poorly, it is easy to eat. You can garnish the pudding with whipped coconut cream, shredded coconut or fresh berries like raspberries or blueberries.

It is a sweet and satisfying dessert which is subtly spiced and a fantastic pudding to enjoy on a colder day or when you just need something warming. Just a little word of warning – fruit cooked in the oven tends to hold its heat for ages, so leave it to cool a little, especially if you are serving it to kids.

Lemon Raspberry Gelatin Gummies

Click here for the recipe.
Ingredients: lemon juice, frozen raspberries, honey, gelatin.

These little gummies look amazing and it’s hard to believe they are good for you too! Gelatin can help to strengthen your hair and nails and gives a popular texture for kids (and adults if they’re honest!) This recipe works well with other fruits too, so feel free to experiment with strawberry or blueberry instead. If you decide to use raspberries, it might be a good idea to sieve out the seeds first, as some people complain about the seeds getting stuck in their teeth.

Pumpkin Panna Cotta

Click here for the recipe.
Ingredients: gelatin, coconut milk, coconut cream, pumpkin puree, honey or maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom.

Spiced pumpkin has an amazing flavor, yet it purees well, making it a great ingredient for desserts.

They also look amazing with the chocolate frosting. These would be perfect for a kids’ party or if you have friends round for coffee.

Basler Brunsli (Chocolate-Almond Spice Cookies)

Click here for the recipe.
Ingredients: almond flour, coconut sugar, semi-sweet chocolate chips, ground cinnamon, ground cloves, egg whites.

These cookies originate from Switzerland, and are a great feature of the Christmas period in that area of Europe. The spices in these, especially the cinnamon, give a warming feeling to the cookies and they are gluten and dairy-free, so they are safe for most. And who doesn’t like chocolate cookies? One idea would be to use these as decorations for the Christmas tree by making a hole in the cookie and threading a ribbon through.

Ingredients: black tea bags, whole star anise, saffron threads, hot water, coconut sugar or maple syrup, full fat coconut milk, vanilla extract.

Click here for the recipe.
Ingredients: raw cashews, water, raw cacao powder, flaxseed meal, egg, raw honey, vanilla extract, baking soda, salt, 70% dark chocolate chips (optional).

Looking at these brownies, you could never guess they were Paleo! The creaminess of the cashews is what makes these fudgy in the centre, which is a clever trick. As these brownies are perfect for people with gluten issues, they would make a lovely gift or a nice surprise for a special occasion. If you are allowing yourself to have the chocolate drizzle on top, you can either pipe it on using a bag, or simply use the back of a spoon and drop the chocolate over them.

The cinnamon gives a subtle warming and sets off the sweetness of the banana well. It is a good idea to taste the mix before freezing in case you want to adjust the amount of cinnamon to suit your palate.

The Best Paleo Drink Recipes

Drinks can be tough on the Paleo diet if you’ve been used to drink sodas and frappuccinos. That’s why this category of the Paleo recipes list is dedicated to Paleo drinks recipes. From smoothies to teas, coffees, and even some soda-alternatives, we’ve got them all.

Sweet Ginger Smoothie

Click here for the recipe.
Ingredients: cashew milk, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, ripe banana, medjool dates.

This is a quick and easy recipe that gives a deliciously sweet and spiced drink. Ginger has many health benefits, including reduction of inflammation, but combined with the dates, it gives a delicious flavor to this drink that is warming yet refreshing at the same time. If you buy ginger and have some left over, just peel it and pop it in the freezer for another time, then you can grate the frozen ginger straight into another drink or dish.

Paleo Coconut Water Green Smoothie Recipe

Click here for the recipe.
Ingredients: coconut water, banana (optional – omit for less sugar), raw cashews, spinach, coconut oil, potato starch (optional), pure whey protein powder (optional).

The spinach in this smoothie makes it a more vibrant green color than other green smoothies, which can look a bit sludgy. The creamy taste of the cashews and banana gives this smoothie a lovely consistency, although it can be made without the banana if you don’t like it so sweet. Coconut water gives a great base to lots of combinations of flavors, and it is healthy in itself, so this is an ideal breakfast or dessert drink.

Iced Green Tea Mojito

Click here for the recipe.
Ingredients: unsweetened iced green tea, mint leaves, cucumber, lime, raw honey.

Green tea has long been used to aid detoxification of the liver and aid digestion, but putting that aside, this is one of the freshest drinks you can make! It tastes great with alcohol in it, but as a cool, summery drink it is wonderful without. The mix of lime, mint and cucumber means that this drink has a zingy, tangy flavor and can help to slow dehydration – especially in hot weather.

Coconut Masala Chai Tea

Ingredients: coconut cream, raw honey, black tea, masala tea spice blend (recipe included).

Masala simply means ‘spice mix’, and the spices used are specifically blended for the tea. They normally include cardamom and nutmeg. This drink has its origins in India, famous for their tea, but is quite simple to make yourself, and by adding coconut cream you can experience the dairy-free option at home. Just remember to strain the tea before drinking if you are using loose tea leaves!

Sparkling Watermelon Cooler

Click here for the recipe.
Ingredients: watermelon, lemon, sweetener, seltzer water.

Watermelon always makes you think of long, hot summer days, and this drink is the perfect thirst-quencher. The lemon juice gives it a citrus hit and makes it even more refreshing. If you like your ice crushed then simply add it to the blender with the other ingredients and serve in a glass garnished with a sprig of mint for a lovely, slightly sparkling taste of summer.

Pumpkin Spiced Latte

Click here for the recipe.
Ingredients: black coffee, pumpkin puree, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ghee.

There is something very comforting about the taste of spice and pumpkin, and this latte makes a great drink to heat you up when it is chilly. The nutmeg and cinnamon give this drink a warming spice and even the rich color makes this a very attractive option to straight coffee. You could even serve it with a little grated nutmeg on top for a professional finish.

Apple Pie Kombucha

Click here for the recipe.
Ingredients: kombucha, Granny Smith apple, whole cloves, allspice berries, cinnamon stick, sugar, kombucha bottle.

Kombucha is a fermented juice extracted from green or black tea. This can help to carbonate drinks for you if you leave them for a few days. With all the added spices in this drink it is packed full of flavor and the fermented apples give a flavor not unlike cider. Before serving, remember to strain the kombucha through a sieve to remove any spice pieces.

Green Pina Colada Smoothie

Click here for the recipe.
Ingredients: pineapple chunks, coconut milk, banana, spinach, shredded coconut, ice cubes.

This pina colada is packed full of tropical flavors from the pineapple and coconut and can be served in a decorated glass for an impressive drink to serve to friends. However, the goodness from the spinach means that this smoothie is actually a great choice for breakfast as it gives the system a boost with the vitamins and iron, and slow-release energy from the banana.

Paleo Coffee

Ingredients: ghee, coconut oil, coffee.

You might think it is strange to put ghee and oil into coffee, but if you like your coffee frothy then blending these ingredients in gives a great froth and an amazingly smooth taste! Just use a hand blender or a milk frother if you have one. This recipe is quick and easy to make then you can just relax and enjoy.

Coconut Water Kefir

Click here for the recipe.
Ingredients: kefir grains or water kefir starter, young coconut water, juice (e.g., lemon, lime, cherry or tangerine).

There are plenty of kefir-style flavoured waters available from your local store, but the joy of making it yourself lies not only in the actual achievement, but it also gives you the chance to experiment with the flavours that suit your palate. Just follow the recipe to learn the basic idea, and then try out different fruits till you find your favourites. Keep a stock of these in the fridge as a healthy option to drink with a meal.
