Strawberry Kiwi Smoothie

strawberry-kiwi-smoothie

Smoothies are the perfect breakfast or snack for meals on the run. The chia seeds in this deliciously fruity version add a unique texture. Drink the smoothie right away for a satisfying crunch, or wait for the seeds to “gel” and enjoy a texture similar to tapioca pearls.

This shake is lower in protein than most Paleo breakfasts, so be sure to pair it with a hard-boiled egg, some cooked chicken or sausage, or a handful of almonds for a complete meal.

    how many calories are in each meal. You have been so nice to make our lives easy…it wil be nie to know the mount of calories in each meal.

      If you are a member of the meal plan, you should be able to see the nutritional information for each recipe. On the meal plans, although Paleo is not directly guided by caloric intent we do try to stay around 1700-2000 calories per person per day.

    This is tasty.I used to make smoothies with greek yogurt and Thai coconuts BEFORE going Paleo, so the coconut milk in can tastes different, but still very satisfying and extremely easy to make.
