The Secret Ingredient

We all want quick, easy, healthy breakfast ideas right? And we all want breakfast to be nutritious, filling, and of course yummy. And who else here wants to disguise the taste of kale? Yes, me too. Well after much trial and error, I have the secret weapon against bitter kale – mint!!!!

Are you ready to lose weight and heal your body for life (without dieting, drugs, or making yourself miserable)?

How to Lose Weight & Transform Your Health for Life

Our free on-demand video training will walk you through how to make this THE year you set health goals…and keep them.

The mint adds a lovely subtle flavour that helps disguise the kale, and if it doesn’t pack enough mint flavour for you, you can add some peppermint essence to give it a real kick.

So why does this green smoothie keep you full until lunch? Healthy fats – that’s the secret because healthy fats such as coconut cream keep you fuller for longer.

Are Fruit Smoothies Healthy?

If you think drinking a fruit-based smoothie each morning is a great way to start your day – think again. So many of them are absolutely jam-packed with sugar – yes they may be natural sugars, but they are sugar nonetheless.

Just watch this little clip (and look at the fun infographic below), I hope you may never order a fruit smoothie ever again.

How Much Sugar Is In A “Healthy Diet”

The trick to eating a healthy, low-sugar, and low-carb diet is to know what you are eating already. For many, this infographic comparing sugar values in “health foods” is a real eye-opener.

Diagram of how much sugar is in your diet

How much sugar do eat every day without realising it? Just look at the values for fat-free frozen yoghurt. Healthy? Spoiler alert – think again. Look at the full sugar infographic. 

The trick to healthy smoothies is to add low-sugar fruits and add plenty of healthy fats and greens instead. Just look at what goes into my keto green smoothie. Packed with nutrition but without the sugar that will give you a slump around 10 am.

    I have found that both fresh basil and mint combined with greens also mask the greenie taste in smoothies.

    too much “side notes” and personal anecdotes. get to the point. LIST ingredients and be DONE with it.

      TrueTea,
      All you need to do is to jump to the recipe. That’s all.
      do you realize how much work has been done to have just this page.
      This is also where their income comes from. It is irritating, yes, when you have all the ads and such BUT, this is how Libby make her living.
      People, be nice. Be compassionate and understanding.
      Blessings to all!!
      Be nice to each other!!

      1. Thank you so very much Nona. You have made my day with such kind words and support. I do try my hardest to make this the best family-friendly low-carb recipe website with over 400+ free recipes, cooking videos, email support, free groups, free eBooks and answering almost every single question here. And yes, I wish I didn’t have to have adverts, I don’t like them either, the adverts are sometimes intrusive, however they are necessary to meet the ever-increasing costs of running a free website.

        1. 5 stars
          Libby,
          Your hard work is highly appreciated!!
          Thank you for putting so much effort into this so needed website.
          Wishing you all the best!!

            Hi Nona, thank you so much for being so kind and leaving me such a wonderful comment today. Have a wonderful week 🙂

  3. Your math doesn’t even come close to adding up on this. 125 ml of the cream you link, which is coconut cram btw, is 33.3g of fat. The half an avocado is another 15 at least. Unsweetened yogurt some more two at least tablespoon of chia seeds is another 3+g. Almond milk another 2g So we are well over 50+ grams of fat. 50% more fat then your state. This would clock in about 50% of the total fat or more most women on a ketogenic diet and all or almost all for a non-ketogenic diet. Should frankly be ashamed.

    1. Brendan, it seems someone has made you a little terse today. So here goes. I’ll make the mathematics super simple for you. Nutrition panels vary from brand to brand and country to country so my nutrition panels are always declared as a guide. If it is critical for your health goals to be accurate, please always calculate using the brands that YOU used.

      125ml coconut cream = 42g fat (possibly even less as most coconut creams are only 20%-25% fat = 25g – 31.25g), yoghurt = 4g, almond milk = 3g, 1/2 avocado = 15g, mint leaves = 1g, chia seeds = 4g = Total 69g. Now Brendan, before you give yourself a high-five for pointing out the fat content was incorrect, did you divide it by the 2 servings this recipe makes? Hmmm … I think not. So I stand by this smoothie is 34g fat.

        Way to go Libby! Brendan should be ashamed.

  4. AWESOME smoothie ! Not only is it healthy but taste better than sugar smoothies 🙂 loved the extra information about fruit smoothies very true ! The danger is definitely more in the ‘perceived healthy natural sugars’ such as muesli bars and orange juices, sweetened yoghurts ect – I think when people eat chocolate they know it ain’t healthy and eat in in moderation but the so called ‘ healthy sugars ‘ is the issue. Fruit may be natural but it ain’t natural to drink that much in one seating – especially fruit juices are dangerous as they remove all the fibre which helps slow down digestion of sugar aiding the burden on the liver. fruit is natural and is healthy on occasion but juicing them is definitely not ! Sugar is sugar and your body doesn’t discriminate whether it comes from ‘natural fruit juice ‘ or a can of coke. If you want to feel better ditch sugar now ! the detrimental effects on the body and the mind are numerous.

  5. So perhaps this is silly.. but every time I try to make a green smoothie i end up with half a very liquid part and half a cross frothy part… I used spinach, celery, cucumber and mint as my greens… Please help! Ha.

    1. I “think” it may be the celery or the cucumber that is giving the frothy effect. You could omit the cucumber first as a trial and make the smoothie again to see if the frothy part has been reduced, then try omitting the celery. If you love to keep them both, let’s just call your smoothie a whipped smoothie? Yummo.

      1. 5 stars
        Thanks for allowing test and taste.

    2. It could be your blender. I watched and read a bunch of blender reviews before I invested in my blender. It was definitely not inexpensive. I paid $199.00 but if you use it every day for an enire year, that’s just 55 cents per day. The blender also has a three year warranty, so if you use it for three years every day the daily cost comes down to 18 cents a day. I decided it was worth the investment towards a healthy way of eating. Good luck to you.

    I’m gone to convey my little brother, that he should also pay a visit this weblog on regular basis to get updated from most recent information.

    Hi, is there a substitue for the unsweetened yogurt? I live in Norway and have a hard time finding it 🙂
    Thanks 🙂

    1. Greek yoghurt would also work. Just ensure it has no added sugar and the carb value is low enough to be low-carb (generally less than 4g/100g).
