Did you know that the fastest way to get a flat belly is by adding smoothies to your diet? Preparing a smoothie at home is also far easier than making a full-course meal.
What about diet smoothies in stores? Can you trust these to achieve your weight loss goals?
These may work but nothing beats a homemade smoothie. You have complete control over ingredients and can choose to combine flavors that you prefer.
Top 10 belly fat diet smoothies:
Wake-me-up smoothie: This is the perfect smoothie to kickstart your day, even when you have had a late night. Instead of running to the coffee machine, make a smoothie rich in nutrients and green tea. Use vegetables like kale and spinach, fruits like avocado, bananas, and grapes, chia seeds (rich in Omega-3 fatty acids) to add fiber and protein in your diet. Green tea is most effective for burning belly fat because it has catechins which speed up metabolism.
Orange and kale smoothie: This smoothie is rich in vitamin C that helps to regulate blood glucose levels. Oranges in the smoothie mix excellently with succulent veggies and juicy fruits. Honey is added for the sweetness in place of artificial sugars. It sounds like a light smoothie but it is actually rather filling and energizing. Almond milk provides for energy and fiber.
Green tea smoothie: Green tea is a metabolism-booster and facilitates weight loss. This smoothie is made with cayenne pepper, another metabolism booster, honey, fruits, cinnamon and Greek yogurt. It’s creamy and refreshing which can help burn the fat throughout the day.
Protein smoothie: A protein-packed smoothie is the best way to stay energized through the morning and avoid cravings. You can add kale, spinach, green tea, avocado, bananas and apple to make it. Spinach and kale can blend perfectly with creamy avocado.
Chocolate shake: This shake made of fiber, complex carbs, and proteins will keep you feeling full for long hours. It can be a go-to solution for dieters not keen to do away with regular breakfast meals. To make it, use chocolate protein powder, ground flax seeds, unsweetened almond milk, and bananas.
Banana Split Protein smoothie: This smoothie can be an excellent choice for losing weight because it is made with fruits, proteins, and dairy alternatives. The taste is exceptional and the meal wholesome. It’s almost like a dessert with strawberries capable of fighting stomach fat.
Wild Blueberry, flax seeds and mint smoothie: For a super blend of belly-fat fighting ingredients, opt for this easy-to-make breakfast smoothie. Blueberries have resveratrol that impacts epigenetic mechanisms causing fatty liver or weight gain. Mint also helps to fight belly fat and prevents bloating.
Avocado and Pear smoothie: This is both creamy and sweet as it contains pears, avocado, raw honey, vanilla extract, and Greek yogurt. While you won’t need too many ingredients to make this at home, you can trust it to be nutritious and delicious.
Green Smoothie: Use bananas, kale, avocado, red grapes, and ginger root to prepare this healthy smoothie. Ginger added to it works like a fat burner, effective for reducing belly fat and giving you a flat stomach. Avocado makes it creamy and tasty.
Strawberry & Goji Berry Smoothie: As the name suggests, this smoothie has honey, Goji berries, and strawberries. It is perfect for dieters who find it hard to have spinach and kale in the morning.
