Primal Smoothies

I’ve started to have smoothies some mornings when I’m in a particular rush, since they are so quick to make and can be packed with nutritionally dense Paleo foods.  I’m also going to start making up a smoothie to take to the gym with me – that way I’ll be able to have something in the post work-out window – I often miss this valuable time, in my return from the gym.

Paleo Primal Smoothies

Today I tried a smoothie from Primal Toad’s Toadally Primal Smoothies ebook, the “Clumsy Popeye”. I thought this one would be a good choice after an early morning gym session, as it is packed with antioxidants – and protein in the form of protein powder.

Paleo Smoothies

I put water, frozen blueberries, cashew butter, Chocolate Primal Fuel, spinach coconut milk & ice in my blender for a few minutes – and then served, with some shredded coconut on top.  It doesn’t get much easier than that!  I thought the spinach taste might not be to my liking, but the main tastes were the chocolate, coconut and cashews – I really enjoyed it and will definitely be making this one again.  There’s a whole section on green smoothies, which I’m keen to try – it seems like a good way to get in lots of good nutrients.

Do you often have smoothies?  Are they something you have as a meal, or as a post workout recovery drink?

    Oh, sorry Suz, I didn’t realise it had nuts in it!! Am I correct in saying you don’t eat nuts & seeds? Oh, well, it was a great idea, it’s one of the better products in the scheme of things, & uses Stevia as it’s sweetener, only 3 grams per 100 grams. I was a bit surprised that the Primal Fuel doesn’t list all it’s ingredients and the Nutritional Panel per 100 grams….what are they hiding?
    Suz, are the ingredients ok with you as listed on the packaging?
    I’m a big researcher from way back, & am always wary of products that don’t show you all their ingredients on their site….and the whole Nutrition Panel.

    Sorry if I got you all excited!!

    I bought the 180nutrition protein supplement and its quite tasty and yes it is quite nutty and not very sweet, I use it after a workout and it keeps me full for hours and keeps me regular hence the psyllium husks lol. I have one of these a day as part of my workout recovery and I am quite pleased with it. Yes it is easy to overdo the nuts Suze hence why I limit myself to 10 otherwise I would be eating them all day like popcorn, very moreish!

    Isn’t Primal Fuel made from whey protein? Which originates from milk and defeats the purpose of cutting out dairy?? Would love some clarification.

      Hi Beth, Yes it is – and of course real food is by far the best option. But a lot of people still use protein powders and of those available Primal Fuel uses the best quality ingredients, but is not stricly Paleo.
