The 3 Pillars of Health: Fitness, Food, Sleep

Green Smoothies for Fat Loss


You’ve probably heard a lot of talk about including smoothies into your fat loss diet.

Here are three simple green smoothies for you to try.

Plus, an added bonus of a chart for making your custom green smoothies.

Pear Promise

This smoothie is from the blog Green Smoothie Recipes.

2 cups water
2 pears
1 banana
1 cup spinach

You can add some chia or flax seeds for an extra nutrition boost.

Glowing Green

Linda Wagner on her blog suggests this super simple smoothie:

1-2 bananas
1/2 cup frozen peaches
1/2 cup frozen mango
a couple handfuls of spinach

She suggests that you only add enough water to blend and get the consistency you want.

Linda writes:

Great for weight loss, digestive health, supporting the immune system, and as a healthy and filling snack. After a couple of weeks you’ll have that ‘Glow’ – glowing skin, hair, nails, even eyes get brighter! Who doesn’t want that?!

Green Tea Smoothie

Have you ever checked out Yummly?

You’ll find this Green Tea smoothie recipe:

1/2 granny smith apples
1/2 cucumber
1 celery ribs (chopped)
12 ozs green tea (brewed with 2 teabags)
1 tbsp fresh mint
1/2 cup broccoli sprouts
1/2 cup watercress
1 cup ice cubes

This one is a bit more involved than the other recipes, but worth the trouble.

Custom Green Smoothie

Vitamix has prepared an easy to follow chart for making custom green smoothies.

There’s a lot of combinations to try here. In fact, it’s so many you may not know where to start.

That’s why I gave you the three recipes above.
