Keto Green Smoothie

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!!!!

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.

Why do we encourage eating more healthy fats? If you are new here and adding healthy fat to your meals makes you shudder and run for cover, then you may wish to read this article – “Why High Healthy Fat”

Why Avoid Fruit Based Smoothies?

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.

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 below – in this post. Take a look at how much sugar is in a healthy diet. Forget the low fat foods, forget the cereals and don't drink your calories #lowcarb #sugarfree #lchf | ditchthecarbs.com

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.
