Cherry Paleo Green Smoothie

By: Jen Hansard | last Updated: 1.28.2020 | COMMENTS: 12

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.

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.

If you want to give this smoothie a boost of protein, feel free to use your favorite one listed in the ingredient list below.

    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!

    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!!!
