Best 16 Smoothie recipe for weight loss

To have an optimal effect on the body, a slimming smoothie must be correctly composed and consumed at the right time. Here, we take stock of some smoothie recipe and the basic rules of those drinks.

What should a fat-burning smoothie contain?

To make a good smoothie, a few classic pitfalls should be avoided. First, it is imperative to choose fresh, seasonal plants in order to obtain a drink rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. It is also possible to opt for frozen fruits whose micronutrient contents remain very correct. Certain foods of high nutritional quality can also be added to a smoothie to increase the protein, fiber or antioxidant content. For example, this is the case with chia seeds, flax seeds, vegetable milks or even spirulina.

On the other hand, it will be necessary to be vigilant not to add “parasitic” ingredients. White sugar, cocoa, industrial fruit juice are good examples. Indeed, this type of ingredient has no particular nutritional value and unnecessarily increases the content of the drink in calories and simple carbohydrates.

When to consume a smoothie during a diet?

To remain beneficial, a slimming smoothie should not be consumed just anytime as part of a diet. Indeed, a smoothie remains a source of carbohydrates. Despite its interest, it cannot therefore be consumed all day long like water. Ideally, a smoothie should be included in one of the main meals. For example, it can easily be eaten for breakfast or at snack time. If it is composed only of fruit, combining it with other foods (dairy, wholemeal bread, oleaginous) may be wise in order to reduce the glycemic index of the meal.
