Ever feel bored with what you are eating? You are not alone. Even the most creative among us sometimes fall into a slump regarding what we make. If you are interested in boosting your daily nutrition with healthy alternatives, then you are in luck. You may want to consider our following list of delicious smoothies. Designed to be both delicious and healthy. Each recipe has its own benefits to help satisfy those naughty cravings, while also providing the right kind of nutrients to help tone muscle and lose weight.
1. Chocolate Strawberry Smoothie
It doesn’t get much better than a chocolate strawberry smoothie. With that in mind, we begin our list of 3 weight loss smoothie recipes with one that is sure to please. The chocolate strawberry smoothie blast uses a small hand-full of chocolate, a cup of strawberries, 30 grams of Optimum Nutrition 100% whey (or alternatively a 30 gram scoop from one of these whey supplements) and 2 table spoons of chia seeds, to create something that is truly out of this world. What you get when you blend all of these ingredients, is a ton of flavor without the same calories that you would get with a milkshake or something far heavier. Give it a try and see for yourself!
2. Green Blast
While chocolate strawberry smoothie has a lot of flavor, green blast provides an equal measure of nutrition. Made with a blend of half a cup of spinach, a hand full of white beans, ice, and a cup of soy milk, you get a significant amount of iron in a creamy and sweet combination. If you need to substitute a meal with a smoothie, then go with the Green Blast. Along with reducing the amount of calories you are consuming, you get a nutritious and tasty meal that you can take with you on the go.
3. Berry Beets
A combination of several different kinds of berries along with beets, you get a lot of flavor, a lot of nutrition, and very little in terms of calories. Helping you to look good on the outside, the berry beets smoothie is another great thing to take with you on the road. It is great for those who love sweeter things, and its natural ingredients help to cleanse and beautify your skin. Consider one of these a week and be amazed at how filling and beneficial it is for you. Simply take half a cup of frozen blue berries mixed with raspberries, 3 slices of beetroot, a cup of ice and a cup of almond milk. Blend for 30 seconds and enjoy!
Along with these three that we prefer the most, there are many that were very close to making the list but just fell a little short. Some popular runners up include Papaya ginger smoothies, ginger and berry smoothies with oats, banana kale smoothies, Mood boosting blueberry smoothies, and vanilla spinach smoothies. Do yourself a favor and experiment a little with these ingredients and you will be amazed at what you can come up with.
