Cherry Paleo Green Smoothie

I’ve created a paleo smoothie with some unique ingredients, yet the same great taste you’ve come to expect from a green smoothie recipe.

Paleo green smoothie recipes

We’ve created a simple paleo green smoothie that will delight your tastebuds while helping you stick to your eating plan.

If you’re eating paleo, you know that eating a plethora of fruits and veggies is very important. A paleo diet doesn’t have to just be about eating all the meat, chicken, and eggs you want. (It’s a lot more than that really!) At Simple Green Smoothies, we feel our best eating a plant-based whole food diet, yet are happy to stray when the cravings or celebrations come our way.

Plant based paleo green smoothie with cherries

Full-fat coconut milk adds so much flavor and rich texture to this smoothie, not to mention is goes splendidly with the cherries – almost like a milkshake! We’ve used chard (also known as silver beet) as our leafy green, but any leafy green would be fantastic here. It’s loaded up with healthy fats, fiber, and other nutrients to keep you going strong.

    I don’t care for coconut. What would you suggest as a vegetarian alternative? Thanks!

  2. Cristi Cruz says:

    Love this recipe. So refreshing and delicious!

  3. Kimberlee says:

    I have never added gelatin to my green smoothies. How does it affect the consistency?

    • SGS Rawkstar Amanda says:

      Hi Kimberlee,

      You may find that adding organic grass-fed beef gelatin to your green smoothie slightly thickens the consistency. Maybe a great option for adding extra protein to a smoothie bowl!

  4. Michelle says:

    What is the serving size on this one?

    • SGS Rawkstar Amanda says:

      Hi Michelle,

      All of our green smoothies make approximately 32 oz, with 16oz per serving.

    Not to troll—this looks delicious—but you spelled navel wrong. 😉

    • SGS Rawkstar Amanda says:

      Thanks for the heads up, Liz. Just updated the recipe!

  7. Adele says:

    Thank you for all of the tips throughout the many recipes. I tend to have to sub out a lot so all of your hints are greatly appreciated.
    The changes I used for this one:
    Mixture of fresh spinach and tuscan kale (no chard available)
    1 cup orange juice for the orange
    Approx 1 cup coconut cream instead of coconut milk (didn’t measure just left over from using canned cream)
    For the protein option I used your meal replacement guide and chose 1/2 avocado & 4 tbsp of walnuts (no hemp seeds) 🙂
    BTW it came out wonderful. Full of flavor and will definitely make this again. (maybe without changes, one day)
    Thank you Jen & Jadah for making healthy choices easy!!!
