  • I recently started the Paleo Diet.

    As someone who has a full fledged addiction to carbs, dairy and sugar, this has been a challenge to say the least.

    Perfect Paleo Smoothie

    Having a smoothie for breakfast has been the norm lately, but I really found myself missing the milk or cream I would add to make it silky and smooth.

    So this morning I just happened to spot an aging avocado on my counter and thought… why not?  Of course, once I finished my smoothie and google “blueberry avocado smoothie” I realized I was the last person in the world to figure this out.

    Whoops, my bad. (Say that in your best “Clueless” voice)

    But, after some further inspection, I think the jumbled mass of ingredients I assembled is in fact not something I have seen on the internet before.

    Love that you can see little green flecks of veggie in there!

    This smoothie achieved everything I had hoped it would.  A thick yet smooth consistency, an abundance of healthy ingredients, and a satisfying great flavor.

    I just might make it one more day without cake. 🙂

    Sometimes the best recipes are the accidentally created ones! I have two friends on the paleo diet, so I may succumb to peer pressure … but the good kind, especially with smoothies like these. I always feel tired at around 10 or 11, and I think it’s because I always have toast or a bagel for breakfast.
