3 Smoothies For Weight Loss


If you are thinking of slimming down, especially now that summer is just around the corner, then these smoothies are just the thing to help you reach your fitness goals. These nutrient packed smoothies help you lose weight by satiating your hunger and shutting off the hunger signals in your brain by satisfying nutrient requirements. If you consume "empty" calories (foods which are so processed that they have little nutritional value but only calories which get converted to fat), then you are never truly satisfied and may seemingly eat forever. Consuming foods which are nutrient dense (like all fruit and vegetables) will satisfy you faster, and prevent you from over-eating.

Fruit and vegetables are also great at regulating blood sugar levels because they contain fibre and natural carbohydrates which prevent blood sugar spikes and thus prevent weight gain.

Here are 3 easy smoothie recipes which can help slim your waistline!


Banana-Kiwi:
- 4 kiwis, peeled if un-organic, peel left on if organic
- 3 ripe spotty bananas
- 1 cup spinach
- 2 medjool dates, pitted
- 1 cup young thai coconut water

Banana-Strawberry:
- 2 cups organic strawberries, frozen or un-frozen
- 3 ripe spotty bananas
- 1 cup leafy greens of your choice (spinach, kale, etc.)
- 2 medjool dates, pitted
- 1 cup young thai coconut water

Banana-Date-Fig:
- 3 ripe spotty bananas
- 5 medjool dates, pitted
- 5 dried figs, soaked to re-hydrate (or 5 fresh figs)
- 1 cup young thai coconut water
- 1/2 tsp. raw vanilla bean powder

For each smoothie, blend in a blender such as the Vitamix and enjoy immediately! If you want, you can do a 3-day smoothie cleanse (or longer), and drink one of these for breakfast, one for lunch, and one for dinner (although you may want to double up on each of the recipes if that is the case).
