We’re putting together a collection of the best weight loss smoothies here at Blend and Juice starting with this delicious weight loss smoothie. Not does it taste fantastic but it is super filling (with the right things) and can easily be used as a meal replacement. All you’re going to need is a blender for this, a mini blender should do just fine.
The health benefits of Avocados
The creaminess of this recipe is mainly provided by the might avocado but you’re probably thinking we’re mad providing a weight loss smoothie with avocado as avocados are high in fat right? Well yes that is in fact true but I wouldn’t worry, it’s the good healthy kind of fat. They’re also a great source of antioxidants that’ll prevent hearts disease and certain types of cancer. Not too mention the benefits to your skin they can provide!
Ingredients for the Green and Creamy weight loss smoothie
Yield – 2 large glasses
1 cup spinach
1 large banana
1 TBSP peanut butter
1 cup milk
Add ALL your ingredients into your blender and blend until smooth. And that’s it! The ice cubes will make the smoothie extra refreshing and are a nice touch to this creamy treat!
Let’s be honest, mango’s taste awesome. But whats more awesome is the fact they are also loaded with beta-carotene (2mg per cup!), an antioxidant that is a safe source of vitamin A and does wonders for clearer skin. Want to rid your body of toxins and get that fruitful glowing skin, give this smoothie a go!
This smoothie is rich, sweet and tangy and the mango alone contains 500 times the recommended daily allowance of beta-carotene.
Ingredients for a Clearer Skin Smoothie
Yield – 1 large glass
¼ cup mango, cubed
¼ cup mashed ripe avocado
½ cup mango juice
¼ cup fat-free vanilla yogurt
1 Tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice
1 Tbsp sugar
6 ice cubes
Add ALL your ingredients into your blender and blend until smooth. If the consistency of the smoothie is a little to thick, slowly introduce some water to thin it out. Though we LOVE our smoothie thick here and we LOVE our clearer skin too!
