Working out and eating correctly normally works well if you are trying to lose fat, get lean and build muscle. However, sometimes your belly fat keeps resisting any measures you are taking, no matter how much exercises you do or how balanced your diet is.
But do not worry! We have put together recipes for drinks that will ensure you shred that extra layer of fat without too much effort.
1. Watermelon Smoothie
Smoothies are a perfectly healthy and delicious way to hydrate, indulge your sweet tooth a little and shred a few pounds all at once. Watermelon itself is full of benefits: perfect for hydration, filled with nutrients, amino acids and antioxidants and, even better, it is low in calories!
So make sure to try out this recipe and sip away without any hesitation!
1 cup of watermelon chunks
1 cup of frozen berries
1 Tbsp lime juice
½ cup of water
2 mint leaves
1 cup of ice
Add all the ingredients in a blender and mix until completely smooth. Pour in a glass and enjoy this super fresh smoothie!
2. Iced Peppermint Tea
For tea lovers, this perfect summer equivalent will ensure a tasty dehydration along with bringing you amazing side effects! Indeed, adding peppermint has many benefits: it helps processing food and especially fat quicker, which prevents your stomach from bloating.
2 peppermint teabags
Honey and lemon juice to taste
Pour boiling water over the teabags and leave it to infuse. Add honey and lemon juice to taste and stir; then add ice-cold water. Let it cool for a few minutes then pour over some ice; and it is now ready for you to enjoy!
3. Cherry and Dark Chocolate Shake
Yes, you read that right; chocolate can help you lose a few pounds! Indeed, dark chocolate helps lessen food cravings, while reducing hunger so it works better as a small meal than a snack. Your best bet would be to try this out as a quick yet tasty breakfast.
1 cup of milk
1 cup of frozen cherry
90 ml of vanilla yogurt
¼ cup of dark chocolate
Add all the ingredients to the blender and mix until smooth!
4. Spinach and Pineapple Whole Juice
Mixing spinach and pineapple can be an odd choice, however their benefits combined are definitely worth trying this awesome whole juice. Indeed, spinach is rich in antioxidants, vitamin A and vitamin C, but also in protein; while pineapple contains an enzyme, which enhances the digestion of protein (both of the spinach and the rest of the food consumed).
1 cup of spinach
1 cup of pineapple juice
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
Add all the ingredients to a blender, mix until smooth and pour other some ice cubes.
5. Mango Avocado Smoothie
Again, quite an odd mix, especially if you have never tried putting an avocado in a smoothie, but hear me out!
Firstly avocado makes everything extremely smooth, making it a perfect addition to this smoothie; secondly it is filled with vitamins, potassium and healthy fat; and even better when combined with fat-burning food, avocado enhances the nutrients absorption by up to 400%.
¼ cup of mango
¼ cup of avocado
½ cup of mango juice
¼ cup of vanilla yogurt
6-8 ice cubes
Pour all the ingredients in the blender and mix until smooth. Simple as that and it is ready to serve!
