Coconut, Berry, and Spinach Smoothie Recipe (Paleo, Gaps)

“This has spinach in it?” Pete made my day with his question. I’ve learned a little lesson – when I’m using new or different ingredients I don’t announce it to the family. Instead, I serve them, see what the feedback is and then tell them the ingredients. Works like a charm.

So go ahead and serve up a smoothie with spinach. No one will ever know.

Coconut, Berry, and Spinach Smoothie Recipe (Paleo, Gaps)

We prefer the egg yolks in our smoothie because it gives the drink a nice creamy consistency. Organic, pastured egg yolks are a rich source of carotenoids, omega-3 fatty acids, and fat-soluble antioxidant nutrients. When consuming raw egg yolks, I prefer to only use pastured or good quality organic eggs. If you don't want to use raw yolks, simply omit them.


  • 1 1/2 cups coconut milk (I prefer Native Forest)

  • 1 1/2 cups cold water

  • 1 1/2 cup frozen blueberries

  • 1 1/2 cup frozen raspberries
  • 1 1/2 cup baby spinach, washed and patted dry

  • 4 raw egg yolks, pastured or a good quality organic egg (optional - see headnote above)

  • 2-3 tablespoons honey (I used clover) or a few pinches of stevia


Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Adjust sweetness to taste. Serve.

Note: If you're concerned about the goitrogens in the spinach, then you can steam the spinach, drain and then add to the smoothie.

    I’ve been making smoothies with spinach for a few months now, and my family has no idea! Just don’t let them in the kitchen when you blend the greens and they will never know!

    Are you sure there’s spinach in there? It looks too pretty!

    I’m on day 8 (day 6) of the GAPS intro diet, when do I get a fancy treat like this? :o) I can’t wait! Any menu suggestions for the intro diet for GAPS? I’m dying for something different.

      I’d love to help, but can I don’t understand – “day 8 of day 6”. I’m sure it’s just a typo, but I need to know what stage you are at so I can answer the question. :)

  3. Yum! I think you’ve inspired me to try smoothies again. My children were the only two kids in the universe, I think, who don’t enjoy the consistency of a smoothie/milkshake. Even if this does not rev them up, I can’t wait to share your recipe with my readers who ask for “juice” alternatives.

  4. Carrie, I totally agree with you about having people guess what’s in it after they try foods. There are so many negative stereotypes with healthy foods and I think that helps people overcome them.

    PS _ LOVE your new profile pic — you look stunning!

    This is similar to the smoothies I make. I use very ripe frozen banana for sweetness and texture and no sweetener is needed. And I use parsley instead of spinach – full of vitamin c and antioxidants! And you’d never know it was in there.

    Oh sorry i thought you recommended that brand…thought you would havecthe ingredient label! tons of the organic almond and coconut milk contain carcinagins which are harmful to your health!

    Another thing to try- Guyana whole coconut, puree it in your blended with the coconut water, and freeze in ice cube trays!! Use this rather than the coconut milk for your smoothies, or use both!!
