By combining the right ingredients, you can create smoothies that taste great and help you drop pounds. Today I’m going to share with you 5 delicious smoothie recipes for weight loss, that will take you less than a few minutes to make which you can fit easily into your busy lifestyle
So a way to get just the right amount of calories along with good-for-you vitamins and nutrients is to drink fruit and veggie smoothies. They can provide you with a good source of energy that is slow releasing and can boost metabolism so you shed of extra pounds faster.
I’ve personally tried many smoothie recipes but I always find myself coming back to these as they are delicious, low calorie, and nutrient dense.
The first recipe I’m about to give you is a sweet spinach smoothie with a nice combo of iron and nutrient-rich spinach and fruits of medium sweetness like pears and grapes. To make it you will need 6 ounces of lowfat greek yogurt, 2 cups of spinach leaves, 1 ripe pear, 15 white or red grapes without seeds, 2 tablespoons of chopped Avocado and 1 to 2 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lime juice. Put all these in the blender, mix until smooth and serve. You should end up with a bright green color depending on how ripe your fruits and veggies are.
The second recipe is an antioxidant rich smoothie that is filling and can be used a small meal replacement. You will need 1 cup of green tea, 1 cup of mango chunks, ½ medium of avocado, 1 cup of spinach leaves, 1 dash of sea salt, and 1 tbsp of honey or agave syrup to sweeten everything up. Blend for a few seconds till everything looks nice and smooth and serve.
Third recipe, which is utterly delicious is a peaches and cream oatmeal smoothie. Of course you are going to ditch heavy cream on this and add lowfat greek yogurt instead. All you need is 1 cup of frozen peach slices, 1 cup of Greek yogurt, ¼ cup of oatmeal, 1 cup of almond milk, and optionally a few drops of sweetener. Blend these together until you get a creamy, pale orange smoothie.
Another good variation of the above smoothie that is also filling and delicious is to substitute the peaches with 1 banana or frozen banana chunks and add some cinnamon to the mix.
Finally, an easy recipe that is totally refreshing and balanced is to blend 1 banana, with half a cup of strawberries, 1 cup of raw spinach and ½ cup of almond or coconut milk.
You know hatever diets you take part in should never be a quick fix. A healthy lifestyle is the best option for losing weight and adding smoothies in is definitely a great idea.
