Healthy Smoothies that Can Help You Lose Weight

Losing weight is a difficult task that most of us have encountered at least once in a while. Exercise is a great weight to be fit and achieve an amazing figure, toned muscles and less fat. However, there cannot be enough workouts to actually help you lose weight, if you do not start a special eating regime. Dieting does not simply mean “not eating”. On the contrary, if you spend lots of time in the gym, you will need good nutrition for your body to become what you want it to be: lean and beautiful. You will not believe how helpful smoothies can be exactly in aiding weight loss and still not make you starve. Also, if you are a “sweet tooth”, like some of us girls around here, you will be able to satisfy your desire for sweet tastes without sacrificing your diet healthy regime! Not to mention how these recipes can boost your immune system and make your body, skin and hair healthier.

  • A peanut butter and banana smoothie is a great source of protein and will give you a good boost of energy in the morning, so it is a perfect choice for breakfast. Place half a banana, half a cup of low-fat peanut butter, half a cup of non-fat milk and a few ice cubes in the blender and you are ready to go! You may also add a tablespoon of chocolate whey protein powder if you own something like that.
  • If you are a coffee lover, the following recipe will become one of your favourite ones. The mocha smoothie contains half a cup of low-fat vanilla yogurt, a shot of espresso, a teaspoon of cocoa powder and a few ice cubes. Mix everything in the blender and blend until you get a smooth texture. Perfect way to combine breakfast and coffee!
  • The breakfast blueberry smoothie is an amazing healthy option since blueberries are high in antioxidants, they aid significantly in weight loss (particularly in the tummy area) and are simply delicious! What you will need is half a banana, a third of a cup of soy protein, half a tablespoon of flaxseed oil, a quarter of a cup of frozen blueberries, half a tablespoon of honey and eight ounces of water. Blend and enjoy!
  • A more tropical choice would be the mango surprise smoothie. It is an amazing weight loss helper and the surprise in the recipe is…avocado! You already know what a superfood it is, so embrace it in your smoothie, too! Even though it contains some fat, it is the good kind of fat and as long as you do not consume too much, it can be only beneficial. Mix a quarter of a cup of cubed mangoes, same amount of mashed avocado, half a cup of mango juice, a quarter of a cup of vanilla yogurt, a tablespoon of lime juice and of brown sugar and four ice cubes and blend it well to get a great, tasty drink!

We hope these delicious recipes have inspired you to incorporate smoothies in your healthy eating plan!
