My girls love smoothies. But with a Paleo mama and a dairy-allergic kid, we have to be a little picky about our ingredients these days. When the kids were babies, we loved blueberry yogurt smoothies. Now, we almost exclusively use coconut milk as our smoothie base. I hope you love these kid-friendly Paleo smoothies as much as our family does.
- Banana Almond Butter Coconut: These our my kids’ personal favorite smoothies. Banana, almond butter, coconut milk and vanilla (sometimes we add a bit of honey, depending on our bananas’ sweetness) all mix up to make a fantastic dairy-free treat. Or, if you want a little chocolate in your life, you can make a Monkey Smoothie instead!
- Blueberry Pie: A heavenly combination of blueberries, banana, pecans and goji berries, this blueberry pie smoothie recipe is sure to be a hit.
- Frosties: It’s like a Frosty, but you know, not filled with ick. This version is based with unsweetened almond milk and flavored with banana and cocoa.
- Banana Berry: Bananas plus strawberries with your choice of almond or coconut milk. Can’t get simpler than that.
- Chocolate Avocado: My girls love avocado, but if your aren’t fans, never fear. The primary taste in this treat is of bananas and chocolate.
- Hydrating Mango: My kids aren’t fans of coconut water. But they LOVE mango. So when I need them to get their electrolytes in check, I use this recipe for a hydrating blend they’ll gulp down.
- Shamrock: Oh yeah, you don’t need to hit up that fast food chain for a delicious green shake. Try this healthy version made with avocado and coconut milk.
Bonus Recipe: Key Lime: My all-time favorite pie made into a smoothie? What could be more delicious?

Get results like this...Hi Katherine,
I just wanted to tell you I completed the 7 day detox and I feel so great.
I have lost 6lbs, do not feel like I need more my morning coffee, the flushing of my facial skin from rosacea has dramatically reduced and I am so excited to wake up each morning and make a green thickie for breakfast!!
I am a stay at-home, homeschooling momma of 3 littles and at times so busy I would forget to feed myself!
I would go most of the day without eating and then snack on random things.
I gained 60 pounds the last 6 years during pregnancy.
I have lost 30lbs but recently plateaued and have felt so frustrated.
I’ve tried everything from paleo and keto to the point where I didn’t know what to eat or how much and felt like even eating fruit was bad for me which thankfully it’s not!
What a game changer for me. Thank you for sharing a simple but effective program.
I’m so excited to continue another week with this plan! Thankful Stephanie
