5 Top Healthy Smoothie Recipes for Weight Loss

All of the smoothie recipes you find on this website are healthy smoothie recipes that can also be considered as weight loss smoothies.  They all have a great balance of fruits, vegetables, nuts, and superfoods.  With over 100 recipes to choose from, you can easily find your personal favorites.  And when you do find your favorite smoothie recipes, incorporating smoothies into your daily routine will be easy.

Important Factors in Making Healthy Smoothie Recipes for Weight Loss

There are a few important factors in making healthy smoothie recipes for weight loss:
1.) You want low calorie, healthy smoothie recipes
2.) Your weight loss smoothies should keep you full for a long time
3.) You must truly enjoy the taste of the smoothie
4.) Keep your recipes balanced
5.) Optional: Add fat loss accelerators

You want low calorie, healthy smoothie recipes

The key to losing weight is calorie restriction.  If you consume more calories than your body burns, you are going to gain weight.  If you consume fewer calories than your body burns, you are going to lose weight.  There is absolutely no question behind this.  But the challenge is finding the most effective method of implementing calorie restriction.  The method that works is different depending on the person.  But in years and years of practice, it has been shown that substituting at least 1 meal a day for a healthy smoothie recipe works better for most people than any other diet.

You can have a smoothie as a snack or as a meal replacement.  But if your goal is to lose weight, we recommend having a 12-24oz superfood smoothie in place of a meal.  To really kick it into high gear, trying having a 12oz superfood smoothie for breakfast, a 24oz superfood smoothie for lunch, and then a normal, healthy dinner.

All the superfood smoothie recipes on this website are low calorie, so if you follow the recipes, then you can be assured that you are making a good, healthy, weight loss smoothie recipe.

Your weight loss smoothies should keep you full for a long time

Staying full means you will eat less and therefore consume fewer calories.  This is really where smoothies beat juicing.  When you make a smoothie, you keep the fiber.  But when your juice, the fiber is removed.  Additionally, it’s very easy to add protein powder to your smoothie – which will help keep you full even longer.  If adding protein powder to your smoothie, make sure there are no artificial sweeteners.  We recommend adding a plant-based protein with no sweetener at all and no flavors either.  In our opinion, the sweetness and flavors of your smoothie should be coming from the food you are using to make the smoothie and not from the protein.  We invented a protein powder called, Smoothie Protein (link) that’s exactly that – a plant-based organic protein powder with absolutely no sweeteners, fillers, or flavors.

Healthy smoothie recipes that use less fruit and more vegetables or nuts are also more filling than recipes which use a lot of fruit.  So if fruit smoothies are your favorite, just be careful about the sugar content and if you find that you are getting hungry too fast, then try adding more protein powder to combat that.

You must truly enjoy the taste of the smoothie

I can come up with the ultimate weight loss smoothies, but it’s pointless if you don’t like the taste of them.  Because if you don’t truly like it, then you will not do it long term.  And any diet plan that you won’t do long term is a failure of a plan.  The #1 reason why most weight loss plans fail is because they are short term accelerators and not long term strategies.  Short term accelerators are things you can force yourself to do for a short period of time, but are unable to do in the long term.  They are things like boot camps, detoxes, “challenges”, etc.  Long term strategies are things that you can do long term … things you can implement as part of your daily routine.  The #1 most important thing in finding your long term strategy is that you must enjoy it.  If you don’t, then you will likely not be following it long-term.

As you continue to make smoothies, you’ll probably find your taste buds start to change a little bit to wean towards lower sugar, more earthy recipes.  A lot of people start with smoothie recipes that may be 80% fruit and 20% vegetables, but as they continue to make them, that ratio will get more and more balanced as your taste buds naturally adjust.

Keep your recipes balanced

A balanced smoothie recipe consists of fruit, vegetables, nuts, superfoods, etc.  It’s not just yogurt and fruit.  True – just putting yogurt and fruit in your blender may taste amazing, but it’s not balanced.  There are balanced healthy smoothie recipes that taste great and those are the recipes you should be making.  This website is filled with balanced nutrition recipes that have it all – and taste great!  Different foods have different beneficial properties (e.g. antioxidants, vitamins, fats, etc.) and eating a variety of foods is the best way to ensure you are consuming all of these important aspects.

Optional: Add fat loss accelerators

Certain foods have been shown to have properties which help accelerate fat loss.  If you make your smoothie with these foods, then you are actually targeting your healthy smoothie recipe specifically as a weight loss smoothie.  This webpage (link) lists the top foods for weight loss that can be used in your smoothie, and then also provides a list of weight loss smoothie recipes that use these foods.  By using this webpage, we can find the top 5 foods that can serve as weight loss accelerators are:

  1. Green Tea
  2. Coconut Oil
  3. Pea Protein Powder
  4. Cayenne Pepper
  5. Cinnamon

Clicking on any of those above foods will show you the scientific research for how they relate to fat loss.  As an example, look at Green Tea.  For green tea, there are 7 human studies, 2 animal studies, and 2 academic reviews which link green tea to fat loss.  These studies have concluded things like, “These findings suggest that EGCG alone has the potential to increase fat oxidation in men and may thereby contribute to the anti-obesity effects of green tea.” (link)

Summary thus far:

This website is filled weight loss smoothies that are both balanced and low calorie.  If you really want to take your recipe up a notch, then try adding ingredients that are known to be fat loss accelerators.  The next section will list out the top 5 weight loss smoothies on this website – because they are the ones using the most fat loss accelerator ingredients.
