The layers of strawberry and kiwi add a pretty visual effect, with colors that are perfect for the warmer weather and blending the mint right in with the fruit gives it a fun and slightly different flavor. As for adding the alcohol to it – alcohol is very much a grey area, and many people find that they just don’t do well with it. For some it’s a gut irritant; for others it just makes them feel lousy. If you’re in the no-alcohol camp, just leave the rum out of it; the smoothie will still be tasty. But alcohol is also an important part of human social occasions, and eating Paleo shouldn’t cut you off from your friends and family. PREP: 15 min.

You don’t have to soak the nuts overnight but there are two big benefits that you might find worth the wait: The texture of your finished product will be smoother and silkier.The nuts will be easier to digest and less likely to upset your stomach.

It might seem like an odd combination, but it’s truly delicious. Even though cucumbers are technically and botanically a fruit, they are one of the rare ones to be more on the savory side of the spectrum so they are often considered and prepared as a vegetable. A lot of people do not like to mix fruits and vegetables, because of the conflicting sweet and savory tastes, but cucumber is quite neutral in taste and it reduces a little bit the sweetness of the blueberries.
