59 Healing AIP Smoothie Recipes [Autoimmune-Friendly, Paleo]

Louise Hendon | September 15
50+ Healing AIP Smoothies www.healingautoimmune/aip-smoothie-recipes

Breakfast is one of the toughest meals on any diet because you want something quick and easy but also delicious and filling to start your day. Luckily smoothies fit that bill perfectly. That’s why we’ve put together this list of 65 AIP smoothie recipes to help you heal your body but also enjoy your food.

If you’re not familiar with the AIP diet, then AIP stands for Paleo Autoimmune Protocol. So, there are no dairy ingredients, eggs, nuts or seeds, or any nightshades in these recipes.

Quick Note about Vanilla on AIP

One of the gray area ingredients for the AIP diet is vanilla. While vanilla beans are ok for most people, store-bought vanilla extract typically contains alcohol as well as other ingredients. The general advice is that if you’re cooking (i.e. heating) the vanilla extract, then you’ll be burning off most of the alcohol so it shouldn’t be a problem. However, if you’re using vanilla extract in a recipe that isn’t heated, then you should use alcohol-free vanilla extract instead. Since that’s hard to find, we suggest either omitting the vanilla, using a tiny bit of the seeds scraped from the inside of a vanilla pod or else try this pure vanilla powder.

If you’re concerned about reacting to vanilla in any way, then for these AIP smoothie recipes, you can omit vanilla when it’s called for in the recipe. It will change the flavor though.

Quick Note about Fruits on AIP

While fruits are allowed on the AIP diet, it’s best not to overeat them. Smoothies can be easy to gorge yourself on as they have lots of natural sweetness and honey or maple syrup is often added to them as well. Just be aware of how much fruit you’re consuming each day, and try to limit it.

Here are just a few of the AIP Smoothies we’ve included:
