A banana smoothie is a slimming smoothie that is ideal for breakfast because it is nutritious and high in fiber. It will give you energy and keep hunger away until lunchtime.

The word “smoothie” makes many of us think of a food that makes you fat; these drinks often contain milk cream, ice cream, or other high-calorie ingredients. However, there are also slimming smoothies, to be prepared at home with natural and healthy ingredients.

We offer you 4 delicious recipes that will allow you to enjoy a good smoothie all year round. Take note!

Benefits of slimming smoothies

  • They satiate, being rich in water and fiber.
  • They are easy to digest because the ingredients are simple and smooth.
  • They are made from fruit and other ingredients that some people don’t like to consume.
  • You can drink them quickly and everywhere.
  • They are energetic, but they don’t get fat.
  • They are easy to prepare.
  • While they are very nutritious, their fiber and healthy fat content contribute to weight loss in a balanced way.
  • If you consume them for breakfast or as a snack instead of a sandwich or, better still, biscuits and brioches, you will immediately notice the benefits.

Classic banana and cocoa smoothie

Banana gives a sweet flavor, creamy texture, and is above all satiating; for this reason, it is often the main ingredient in slimming smoothies. However, it must be well mature.

  • Banana
  • Almond milk
  • Bitter cocoa

You can dilute the almond milk with water, to taste. Put it in the blender, add the banana and cocoa and blend everything.

“Strawberry and cream” smoothie

This smoothie will surprise you with its flavor, but you should know that, in reality, it does not contain cream, nor does it contain milk or sugar.

  • Fresh strawberries
  • Cream of oats or rice
  • Agave syrup
  • Walnuts

Cream of oats or rice is a thick drink that can perfectly replace cream and that you can easily find in health food stores and some supermarkets.

Blend the strawberries and cream well and serve everything in a glass. Add some agave syrup and sprinkle with chopped walnuts.

It is ideal for breakfast or as a snack, but it can also be a healthy and sophisticated dessert. To improve the presentation you can decorate it with strawberry pieces.

Tropical pineapple and coconut smoothie

This smoothie, which allows you to vary the choice of fruit, is refreshing, diuretic, and helps burn fat, thanks to its two main ingredients.

  • Natural pineapple
  • Coconut milk or coconut water
  • Turmeric powder
  • Purified liquid stevia

Turmeric gives a lively yellow color to the preparation. It also makes it even healthier thanks to its anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, and antioxidant properties. It is, therefore, an ideal smoothie for those suffering from pain.

Stevia, a natural calorie-free sweetener, must instead be purified and transparent in color, so as not to alter the flavor of the smoothie too much. Just add a little, since it sweetens a lot.

Blend all the ingredients and decorate with a little grated coconut.

Baked apple smoothie

This warm cream can also be served as a dessert, as it is digestive and satiating. We recommend it in cold seasons, as it will help you warm up without introducing too many calories.

  • Baked apples
  • Light yogurt
  • Cinnamon
  • Lemon peel
  • Honey (optional)

Blend the cooked apples (with the peel, if you want to increase the fiber doses and the laxative effect) and the yogurt, then add a little cinnamon and untreated lemon zest. If you want a sweeter flavor, for example, to entice your children, add some honey.

Other healthy ingredients

Other ingredients rich in health properties to add to your weight loss smoothies are:

  • Brewer’s yeast: to improve the appearance of hair, skin, and nails.
  • Spirulina powder: gives a green color to the smoothie and increases its slimming properties.
  • Maca powder: it is energetic, is a hormonal regulator, and also improves the condition of the skin, hair, and nails.
  • Ginger: it is a spice that helps you lose weight, as well as fight the winter cold.
