Whole30 Smoothies: 8 Compliant Smoothie Recipes

8 Whole30 Smoothies: Compliant Recipes For Super Smoothies!

whole30 smoothies

Whole30 smoothies are a great easy and tasty way to get the nutrients your body needs.

Check out our selection of top Whole30 smoothie recipes and blend away!

It should be noted: while smoothies are technically compliant for Whole30, they aren’t encouraged. Why? Well, eating a meal sends a different signal to your body than drinking a meal – your body won’t feel as full consuming a smoothie. Plus, with all that fruit, most smoothies can set off your sugar cravings in a way that’s best avoided.

Ultimately, it’s your call. Just be careful with these things! If you find yourself feeling hungry shortly after consuming a smoothie and find the fruit sugar setting you off, smoothies might be best avoided.

A Word About Coconut Milk: Some of these Whole30s smoothie recipes call for coconut milk. Here’s the deal with coconut milk – the ones in cans are usually OK, but the kind from the carton is usually not. ALWAYS read labels. Find coconut milk that is compliant, ideally just coconut and water. Guar gum is also allowable. Anything else and it’s a no go!

    Please review your ingredients list below and instructions for item 7. There is no honey listed in the ingredients list, yet there is honey in the instructions list. Plus you are not allowed honey on Whole 30 so I am not sure how this then is Whole 30 compliant.

    • LifeHealthHQ says:

      Apologies Ali – since honey was not listed as an ingredient, I missed it. I’ll make sure to add a note to the recipe now.

  • Anisa says:

    The brown sugar/stevia/maple syrup listed in the guava papaya smoothie is not compliant with Whole30 either. Actually blending fruit into a smoothie isn’t compliant anyway. Have you read the book?

    • LifeHealthHQ says:

      Thanks Anita, not sure how I missed the brown sugar. Yes, technically smoothies aren’t recommended as it’s a bit SWYPO-ish, but many people opt for smoothies anyway. This is a list for those who choose to go that route.

  • ConnieD says:

    I appreciate the recipes. Eating healthy can be enjoyable. I also believe that in a moment of sweet weakness I would rather have a healthy smoothie than break down and get a milkshake or worse. These are great options. Thank you again. And yes I read the book!

    What is the serving size for these recipes? Are they each 1 serving?
