Banana Almond Paleo Smoothie – Delicious & Healthy

Last Updated on May 20, 2013 by

A Paleo smoothie is a great way to start the morning.   Some days, I just don’t have time to enjoy a sit down breakfast.  Some days, the kids have been just pokey and disorganized enough to make me late. Others, I have an early phone call with a client.  Either way, I need something fast and portable for breakfast that is still healthy.  Most portable breakfasts are fairly high in carbohydrates and sugars. That’s not really what I want to eat first thing in the morning. I don’t find it filling and the crash after the sugar high doesn’t leave me very productive for the rest of the day.

Banana Almond Paleo Smoothie - Delicious & Healthy
Save RecipeSave Recipe


  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 cup of almond milk
  • 2 tsp almond butter
  • 1 packet Stevia
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin seeds - unsalted
  • 1 tbsp heaping of slivered almonds
  • Cinnamon to taste


  1. Add everything to the blender.
  2. Blend on your smoothie setting until well mixed.
  3. Pour in a glass.
  4. Sprinkle cinnamon on the top.
  5. Enjoy

I added pumpkin seeds to my smoothie but  you could easily add sunflower seeds instead.  I have read conflicting information about Stevia and the Paleo diet.  Some articles say that it is fine in moderation since it is natural.  Other articles say that since it has been processed into a powder, it should be avoided.  I enjoy my smoothies on the sweet side so adding a packet of Stevia work for me. If you’d rather not use Stevia, you can certainly leave it out. It still tastes good. it is just not quite as sweet without the Stevia.

I love the taste of the almonds and banana together.  Adding the almonds and pumpkin seeds gives this Paleo smoothie a little bit of crunch to it which is fun.

  7. I just made this for breakfast, minus the stevia, because I can't stand the taste. It was SO GOOD. If you can get korintje cinnamon, do--it has a deeper and slightly sweeter cinnamon taste than regular. It is what Cinnabon uses on their cinnamon rolls. I got it at a local spice store in PA but I'm betting Penzey's would have it or you could order it online somewhere. I use it for baking, applesauce and other things where you just want a slightly more pungent cinnamon taste. It helps with not needing a lot of additional sweetener too--so big win!
    • I'm so glad you liked it. I will have to see if I can find the korintje cinnamon. Maybe my food coop will have it.

  17. This sounds great. I've been trying to eat fruit every day for breakfast. So this would be right up my lane. Hum... peanut butter and banana.
  18. I love bananas, I love almonds, I love Paleo, and I love smoothies, so naturally this is a home run recipe for me!
  19. I bet this would be delicious using unsweetened chocolate almond milk, too! I'll have to mention this to my husband, he follows Paleo.
