Smoothies that guide in weight reduction offer a scrumptious, nutritious way to lose weight.
- Peanut Butter and Banana Smoothie
There are a lot of surprising smoothies that aid in weight loss, and this is one of them.
I wouldn’t have believed that a peanut butter based smoothie could be all that healthy, but the protein is what makes it great.
This smoothie is ideal as a replacement meal.
Thanks to the peanut butter, you get plenty of protein, and all together, it’s like a peanut butter and banana sandwich!
Half of one banana
1/2 cup smooth or crunchy low-fat peanut butter
1/2 cup of non-fat milk
6 ice cubes
1 tablespoon of chocolate whey protein powder
Place all of the ingredients into the blender and blend until smooth.
- Mocha Smoothie
Oh, chocolate! Yay!
Believe it or not, this smoothie is still completely healthy.
It’s perfect if you’re craving sweets.
What you do is combine ice, frozen yogurt, espresso – either decaf or regular, it’s up to you – and cocoa powder, in this order, blend, and delight in the chocolaty goodness!
4 small ice cubes
1/2 cup of low-fat vanilla frozen yogurt
1 shot of espresso
2 teaspoons of cocoa powder
Add ingredients to blender in this order, and then blend at a high speed until smooth.
- Watermelon Smoothie
Watermelon is so low in both calories and fat that you can’t go wrong with this one!
6 cups of seedless watermelon, chopped
1 cup of lemon sherbet, non-fat milk, or low-fat vanilla yogurt
12 ice cubes
Put half the watermelon in the blender and blend until smooth, then add half of the ice and sherbet;
blend until smooth.
Repeat the process with the rest of the ingredients.
- Mixed Berry Smoothie
Mixed berry smoothies that aid in weight loss are among the most delicious, and make a great treat on summer days, too.
It’s easy to make these all year round, though, because you can buy frozen berries.
The recipe is simplicity itself, so if you have the ingredients on hand, you can make it in no time.
Just remember to keep all your favorite berries in the fridge or to always have a bag of frozen mixed berries on hand!
1 cup of frozen berries
1/2 cup of non-fat vanilla or plain yogurt or 1/2 cup of low-fat milk
Blend until smooth.
- Vanilla Yogurt and Blueberry Smoothie
It’s smooth, creamy, and if you like, you can pack in double the blueberries.
What could be better than two servings of that cheerful super fruit?
1 cup of skim milk or soy milk
6 ounces of low-fat or non-fat vanilla yogurt
1 cup of fresh blueberries
1 tablespoon of flax seed oil
1 cup of frozen blueberries or ice
Place milk, yogurt, and the fresh blueberries into the blender with the ice or frozen blueberries, blend until mostly smooth for 1 minute or so, then add flax seed oil.
- Chocolate Raspberry Smoothie
It’s incredibly easy to make and it’s a great weight loss smoothie, plus it tastes awesome and that’s always a bonus.
You can drink it as a sweet treat, a supplement, or a meal all on its own!
1/2 cup of skim milk or soy milk
6 ounces of vanilla yogurt
1/4 cup of chocolate chips
1 cup of fresh raspberries
1 cup of frozen raspberries or ice
Combine everything and blend until smooth;
- Peach Smoothie
I love this smoothie recipe!
It’s so sweet, and it tastes like summer to me, just like the watermelon one does.
With a minimum of ingredients – milk, frozen peaches, and flax seed oil – it’s easy to make, too.
So simple and sweet, yet it’s one of the best smoothies that aid in weight loss!
1 cup of skim milk
1 cup of frozen, unsweetened peaches
2 teaspoons of flax seed oil
Blend milk and peaches until smooth, then add flax seed oil.
- Banana Almond Smoothie
This sounds so rich; it would be perfect for dessert!
The ingredients are simple, so it takes no time at all to get this weight loss smoothie together.
Again, just make sure you have everything on hand.
1 banana, sliced and frozen
1 tablespoon of almond butter
2 teaspoons of flax seed
1/2 cup of almond milk or non-fat yogurt
