I love a good green smoothie recipe. I’ve been part of the health industry since 1993 and have been whipping up healthy, yet tasty treats like this for just as long! This Keto Mint Chip Smoothie is a classic family favorite that’s perfect for St. Patrick’s day and all year round!
Make this Keto Mint Chip Smoothie on a busy morning for a quick breakfast. With a base of hemp seeds, kale, and protein powder, you can throw it together in a couple of minutes. It’s also a favorite after school snack in our house.
With no added sweeteners that spike your blood sugar this green smoothie will keep you going all morning. Unlike other smoothie recipes that have high-carbohydrate sweeteners such as honey, maple syrup, or fruit juice, this healthy keto smoothie recipe is the perfect low-carb high-fat (LCHF) recipe to start your day.

I love using hemp seeds in my smoothies for a number of reasons. First, they’re a fantastic food for the Keto Diet. Second, they’re a great dairy-free, nut-free way to add a smooth texture and rich, creamy flavor to healthy smoothie recipes. Finally, hemp seeds are high in healthy omega-3 fatty acids.
In the summer and fall, I love making this green smoothie with kale that I pick from our garden. This shake is not about hiding vegetables from your children, it’s about being able to eat something quick and hearty for breakfast that has a good dose of protein, fat, and fiber.
This keto green smoothie recipe is an oldie but goodie from the archives that I’ve simplified and updated a bit. I originally posted it in 2012.
