Ok, we’ve met before. My hydrating Paleo smoothie. Which you all have commented and said is the best tasting paleo smoothie you’ve tried. You all sure know how to make a girl smile!
It is one of the most pinned recipes on my site with 25,000 pins and counting. It has been called the paleo Orange Julius smoothie and I am all like, “Mmmm, YES!”
I am pulling it out of the archives because I have been drinking this on the daily.
Life seems to have an unreasonable amount of stress these days. When everything seems to be completely elusive and out of my hands I take what I can control and OWN IT. Like how I feed my body.
Don’t get me wrong. In this season I have been stress eating and fear eating and, “Are we even going to find a home?!” eating. It hasn’t been pretty but it has been delicious.
When we did move into home and we unpacked our blender I nearly cradled it and carried it around like it was my sanity. And then I made my smoothie.
If you know me, you know I orchestrate my day around beverages. A tried and true, carefully curated list of beverages. Coffee in the morning – always.
Smoothie mid morning.
We do sparkling water (or LaCroix) with lemon for lunch. In the late afternoon I usually do a detox tea (coming to the blog soon!) to pick me up and remind myself I am a responsible adult and I can do this living thing. Right?!
Best Tasting Paleo Smoothie
So this smoothie. I almost always have these ingredients on hand because it is an orange and frozen mangoes. This time I only had frozen peaches on hand, so I went with it. I love frozen fruit because it keeps for a really long time and it makes smoothies extra frothy and cold. If I want a boost I add a scoop of vanilla protein powder. If I need some energy, I add some chia seeds after I blend it.
Coconut water makes it extra hydrating and using coconut milk makes it Paleo 🙂
Also can we talk about one of the most frequent comments on my smoothie posts? It’s where I get these straws:
