Paleo Kale Cucumber Smoothie

Smoothies have become a popular drink across all generations, and we are often asked if these concoctions adhere to The Paleo Diet® ingredient guidelines. Learning how to check the ingredients before imbibing is key, and of course making your own is the most fool proof way to ensure your smoothie is fully Paleo. There’s really nothing complicated about it and the results are a delicious and nutritious treat to satisfy your hunger without sacrificing your health. This original recipe from our team is packed with flavor and nutritious ingredients. From prep to done, it takes about five minutes. Just throw the ingredients in your blender and power it up!

If you’re looking for something a little lighter, we also just posted a Paleo Apple Pomegranate Lemonade Recipe right here!

Tip: To serve cold, substitute ½ cup crushed ice for ½ cup of the recommended water.
