Top 30 Best Fat Burning Smoothies for a Heathier Lifstyle

When it comes to fat burning smoothies, there is little debate: Provided that you make them with the right ingredients, they’re delicious and nutritious. However, there are smoothies and smoothie recipes out there that have as much sugar as a can of soda or a candy bar. In other words, if you’re careful about the ingredients you add to your smoothie, they can be a healthy and nutritious snack. In some cases, they can even serve as a light meal replacement, such as breakfast or lunch.

Furthermore, beyond being healthy and nutritious, some smoothies can even help you actually boost your metabolism and burn fat. For example, food and beverages like coconut oil, green tea, whey protein, oolong tea, chili peppers, and Greek yogurt are all fat-burning foods that can be added to smoothies to make them super delicious. Digging a little deeper into lists of foods you can use to make fat burning smoothies, you’ll find delicious berries, avocados, grapefruit, dark leafy greens, turmeric, and more. But how do you make the best fat burning smoothies?

HOW TO MAKE FAT BURNING SMOOTHIES

Although there’s not really a wrong way to make a smoothie, there are definitely some best practices that will help you make your smoothies as delicious and nutritious as possible.

First of all, one of the most important tips for making fat burning smoothies is making sure you’ve got a good blender. One of the best blenders for making smoothies is the SharkNinja system. Other popular brands include the Vitamix and the Blendtec blenders.

Furthermore, another tip is to keep your fridge and freezer well stocked with the ingredients you want to use to make your fat burning smoothies. Also, you can freeze anything for your smoothies, including bananas cut into chunks (without the peels), whole bags of green leafy vegetables, diced avocado, and more. Especially, don’t risk letting your ingredients go to waste. Surprisingly, frozen ingredients are almost as good as fresh ones. Just toss all of that deliciousness in the freezer if you think you’ll not get them eaten while they’re still fresh.

Finally, below are the steps to making the best fat burning smoothies.

First, add any liquid to the blender first. This may be coconut water, fruit juice, plain water, milk, ice, etc.

Next, add your fruits and vegetables. Make sure to cut them into blender-friendly chunks or pieces.

Then, blend until the smoothie is the right texture, thickness, or creaminess.

Finally, add nut butter, chia seeds, oats, yogurt, flaxseed, protein powder, spirulina, etc. Last, blend until desired consistency.

Similarly, there are more detailed instructions and some great smoothie add-in ideas at Super Skinny Me. Here is a short video that shows how to make a smoothie. Of course, you’ll be using your own desired ingredients or the ingredients in the recipe you’re following.
