7 Weight Loss Smoothie Recipes

The Good Fat Smoothie For Weight Loss

It’s been proven that consuming “good fats” can help curb appetite and boost metabolism.

Looking to add some weight loss smoothie recipes that can satiate your hunger to your routine? Blend up this concoction to fill yourself up:

  • 1 medium to large avocado, peeled and pitted
  • 1 1/2 cups of washed and dried spinach
  • 2 browned bananas
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
  • 1 cup of skim milk
  • 2/3 of a cup of ice cubes

After all the ingredients are prepared, blend on high until silky smooth.

Pro tip: To make this a completely vegan smoothie, swap out skim milk for either soy or almond milk.

The Green Power House Smoothie For Weight Loss

Greens are well known for their rich antioxidant, vitamin, and mineral levels.

All low calorie smoothies should include plenty of greens to help maintain your ideal weight. The following is a recipe that will load you up with all those good micronutrients:

  • 2 large browned bananas
  • 1 cup of washed and dried kale
  • 1 cup of washed and dried spinach
  • 2/3 cup of low-fat or nonfat yogurt
  • 1 cup skim milk
  • 1/3 of a cup of ice cubes

Because of the yogurt’s thickness, you may need to push it down toward the blade to mix thoroughly blend all the other ingredients.

Pro tip: Be sure to cut into small pieces before blending.

The Berry Blast Smoothie For Weight Loss

Berries are packed full of carotenoids, antioxidants, and other health benefits.

Berries have also been linked to supporting a healthy functioning thyroid. Which, in turn, supports a healthy metabolism. Blend up the following smoothie to help keep your metabolism going strong:

  • 2 large browned bananas
  • 1 cup of frozen strawberries
  • 1 cup of frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup of frozen raspberries
  • 1 1/2 cups of almond milk
  • 1/3 of a cup of ice cubes
  • 1/4 cup of water

Before you start blending this diet smoothie recipe, be sure the liquids have made their way to the blade. That way, they can blend well with the other frozen ingredients.

Pro tip: For an extra boost of berry sweetness, add a tablespoon of your favorite jelly or jam.

The Mango Fat Burning Smoothie For Weight Loss

In past few years, mangos have grown in popularity as a weight loss aid.

And for good reason:

They’ve been proven, time and time again, to help support fat metabolization.

Looking to really put your fat-burning regimen into overdrive? Make one of the best weight loss smoothie recipes to enjoy after a hard workout:

  • 2 cups of freshly sliced mango
  • 1 browned banana
  • A small pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 cup of frozen pineapple
  • 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/3 of a cup of ice cubes

If you can’t get your hands on fresh mango, frozen will work. However, you may need to add either a 1/4 cup more of almond milk or water to help it blend well.

Pro tip: Capsaicin, the chemical that makes spicy food hot, has been proven to boost metabolism, as well.

The Birthday Cake Smoothie For Weight Loss

Let’s all just admit:

Sometimes we want a slice of birthday cake or a pint of our favorite ice cream. But dessert and weight loss don’t exactly go hand in hand.

Looking to treat yourself without tipping the scales? Follow the recipe below to have your cake and eat it too—without going up a pant or dress size:

  • 2 frozen browned bananas
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons of multi-colored sprinkles
  • Four or five packets of a no-calorie sweetener
  • 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup of vanilla low-fat or non-fat yogurt
  • 1/4 cup of fat-free Cool Whip
  • 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/3 of a cup of ice cubes

To ensure you haven’t over sweetened your birthday cake smoothie, start with four no-calorie packs of sweetener. Then, if you’d like to have it sweeter, add one pack. Possibly two.

Pro tip: If you want it extra light and airy, add a 1/2 cup of fat-free Cool Whip.

The Chia Seed and Chai Weight Loss Smoothie

Chai is renowned for its anti-inflammatory and other calming qualities.

Chia seeds help to aid digestion and reduce hunger, as well.

Marrying the two together might seem odd, but trust us when we say it’s a delicious pairing.

Follow this recipe bellow to, as Oprah once said, “Get your chai on!”

  • 1 cup of brewed chai tea left to cool
  • 1 tablespoon of chia seeds
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg
  • Four or five packets of a no-calorie sweetener
  • 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup of fat-free Cool Whip of other
  • 1 1/2 cup of unsweetened almond milk
  • 3/4 of a cup of ice cubes

Depending on how thick you want your smoothie, the amount of ice you’ll add can vary. But to start with, use the amount recommended in the recipe.

Pro tip: For an extra bit of flair, garnish your chia seed and chai smoothie with a dollop of whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

The Protein Powerhouse Smoothie For Weight Loss

Protein, like fiber, is believed to help curb your appetite. It makes you feel fuller for longer. And what could be better for weight loss than that?

Also, if you’re hitting the gym regularly, this diet smoothie recipe will help your body recover quicker from a hard workout.

Blend up the following recipe to feel full and to feed your muscles:

  • 2 frozen browned bananas
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 2 scoops of either low-fat vanilla or chocolate protein powder
  • Two or three packets of a no-calorie sweetener
  • 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk

If you’re counting sugar, it may be worth purchasing unsweetened protein powders. This way, you can regulate your sugar intake more effectively.

Pro tip: it’s believed the average man or woman can only assimilate (digest) about 30 or 40 grams of protein at once. So there’s no need to go overboard on the protein powder.
