Did you know that smoothies are a great way to lose weight?
I’ve recently discovered some tasty smoothie recipes that were a true revelation for me.
All of them are insanely delicious.
Besides, they are also filling, nutritious and they will help you get rid of a couple of pounds right away.
Peanut Butter and Banana
I know, this seems like joke. But it’s not. Although I could not believe that a peanut butter-based smoothie can be so healthy, nutrition specialists claim the contrary. What makes it great is the proteins it includes. Such a smoothie can replace a whole meal.
Here’s how you prepare it: mix together a tablespoon of natural peanut butter, half a banana, half a cup of non-fat milk, a tablespoon of whey protein powder. Add some ice cubes for extra freshness. Enjoy!
Breakfast with blueberries
I’m sure you already know about the many benefits that blueberries bring to the human body. Well, they also make a great ingredient for breakfast smoothies because they are a rich source of antioxidants. So, blend together ice and water, blueberries, a banana, flax seed oil, soy protein and either honey or apple juice. Your healthy breakfast is ready!
I simply love this combination! Strawberries and bananas make a happy couple and you will convince yourself once you taste it. This smoothie can be prepared really easy. All you have to do is slice a banana, add some strawberries and half of a Florida orange. Complete the „magic” with half a cup of low-fat yogurt or milk and ice.
This smoothie is perfect for the hot summer days. Watermelon is a fruit containing very few calories and fat. Here’s how you can prepare a watermelon-based smoothie: blend together some melon, a little orange zest, some low-fat milk or non-fat yogurt. Don’t forget about the ice. It will make the smoothie more invigorating.
This smoothie is ideal for those who have a sweet tooth. You can enjoy something sweet and completely healthy at the same time. What you need to do is mix a couple of ice cubes, half a cup of low fat, vanilla frozen yogurt and a shot of espresso. Add two tablespoons of cocoa powder and blend everything easily.
Voilà – a wonderful delight of chocolaty goodness!
