Weight loss, losing weight, burning calories, burning fat, all of these are phrases you’ve probably heard hundreds or thousands of times in the past few years. Why are everyone so obsessed with losing weight? Well, for one, losing weight and getting a slim fit body builds up confidence.
Truth be told, we are currently in an era when people are not paying much attention what they eat. And as a result of unhealthy and malnutrition diet, obesity is off the charts. That being said, losing weight requires lots of work, and every little ounce helps. Today, I will share some recipes for healthy and delicious smoothies that will help with weight loss. Just to be clear, just some smoothies without exercise won’t be enough. But smoothies help for burning fat, and for higher energy levels. Let’s go.
As with every smoothie, it starts with some water. For this smoothie, you’ll need to follow up with some healthy fats like avocado, green fruits like kiwi, protein powder, and then some herbs. All in all, your goal here is to get a smoothie that can be used as meal replacement.
After a good workout, you need to replace what you’ve lost during your exercises. And I am talking about vitamins, minerals, electrolytes and water. Unless you get some healthy food after a workout, you’ll feel exhausted, tired and with no energy what so ever. Bananas, spinach and berries are always a nice choice, but especially after a workout they help you rejuvenate and refresh.
I am sure you didn’t thought tofu and similar vegan products can make for a good smoothie. No matter if you are a vegan or not, this vanilla milkshake will make go nuts. With some peanut butter and banana in, the smoothie has more than enough sweetness to make you want for more.
No, it is not Christmas or Thanksgiving. Yes, you can have an eggnog in between holidays and in every other period of the year. If you are an eggnog fan, I have one that will make you crave for more. It might take you little more time for preparation, since this is not your classic “put everything in the blender for 30 seconds” smoothie. But it is well worth the effort.
Another post workout smoothie here, but this one is little different in a way that is designed to burn even more calories. The trick here is to spice up your smoothie with some spices like basil and ginger, both of which speed up your metabolic rate and increase the amount of calories you burn. Don’t worry, there are more than enough healthy nutrients in it to make you feel full in the same time.
Radish is usually ingredient you think of when making a salad. Rarely radish comes to mind when the word smoothie is mentioned, but I would love to change that. Rich in folic acid and antioxidants, radish is a great vegetable for detox diet, and for those who consume everything via smoothie, here is a way to add more radish to your diet.
Green smoothies are the poster child for healthy smoothies, but after some time, they are getting boring. Truth be told, everyone is looking for a way to tweak, or spice up green smoothies. And for you, I’ve got one green smoothie recipe that includes some supplements to make it even more healthy.
It is only conventional that after a green smoothie, I give you a recipe for a red smoothie. Yes, it looks like a Bloody Mary cocktail, but it is nothing like that alcohol packed drink. Think of sweet and sour in a good way, as the combination of strawberry and beets is definitely something you don’t think is possible.
Now this recipe definitely comes with style points as well as healthy points. I won’t reveal the trick how you can make a double-decker smoothie. For that you’ll have to find it out yourself.
Packed with kale, this smoothie helps you burn fat around the most problematic part of your body, your belly. Burning belly fat is one of the hardest challenges, but it is possible with a smoothie that is packed with healthy ingredients like pineapple, blueberries, kale, and almond butter.
I know it is not fall yet, and pumpkin is nowhere to be found, but I want to get you prepared ahead. Planning ahead is rarely a bad option, and for this fall smoothie recipe, I want to add some tea leaves, just so it really feels like fall.
