I’m gonna be sharing my green detox smoothie recipe for losing weight. This recipe has helped me to lose 40 pounds and has become one of my favorite weight loss breakfast recipes. Today I’m gonna discuss how to make my absolute favorite go-to green smoothie recipe.
I absolutely love Smoothie recipe up and making it for a couple of years .It’s really simple and easy to make this recipe is completely dairy-free gluten free and sugar free .
So it’s really healthy and also contains good crabs healthy protein and good fats as well . The first ingredient that I like to add to my green smoothie is one medium banana, this makes the smoothie sweet and creamy and also adds healthy carbs.
If you don’t like banana though you can just reuse mango about 1 cup of chopped up mango, that also goes really nicely withthis recipe and you can use fresh or frozen .
Next, I’m adding some fresh cucumber 1/2- 1 cup peeled and chopped this makes the smoothie really refreshing a love cucumber. Then I’ll add 1/3 of an avocado for some healthy fats.
This will help to make the smoothie even creamier and what’s will help to keep you fuller for longer, but if you don’t like avocados you can also use about 2/3 of a cup of full cream plain yogurt.
I sometimes use plain coconut yogurt it’s a great dairy-free yogurt option, but you can use plain dairy yogurt if you do eat dairy and then a handful of washed baby spinach.
You can hardly taste baby spinach in a smoothie not like if you were to use other leafy greens like Swiss chard or kale and it adds a lot of fiber and nutrients these four ingredients are my green smoothie essentials.
Especially the banana the avocado and the baby spinach and with that is the smoothie base, you can mix and match the rest of the ingredients now I’m adding two tablespoons of dry whole rolled oats.
This actually also helps to make the smoothie creamy and it adds really good whole carbs. This is actually one of my favorite smoothie ingredients for staying fuller for longer – then this is one of the best ingredients.
This adds a really good protein some healthy fats and father -of mix two teaspoons of chia seeds with about 6 teaspoons of water and have left it to soak for a few minutes before adding it to my smoothie.
This helps to make the chia seeds digestible and then for an extra dose of protein I like to add 1 tbsp of unsweetened almond butter.
This is another ingredient that will help to keep me full of for longer and it’s really important to have protein with breakfast .I also sometimes add 1 TSP of cold-pressed coconut oil to my smoothies this also adds healthy fats it’s important to eat whole carbs protein and good fats even if you’re trying to lose weight .
They’re all healthy and then this is totally optional but you can also add some spirulina or chlorella powder.
This adds really good protein too I sometimes add 1/2 to 1 teaspoon then about 1/2 to 1 cup of water or coconut water coconut water adds a little touch of extra sweetness to the smoothie and actually helps to restore electrolytes to the body that plain water works fine for this maybe two and then just blend it all up .
Now I’m gonna add a few ice cubes to make it chilled and blend it up again quickly and now my green smoothie is ready and it’s really creamy and delicious and so full of healthy nutrients this is one of my favorite breakfast recipes for losing weight and for when I’m doing a detox this recipe serves one and depending on what you choose to add to your green smoothie from the ingredients that I showed you in this website.
The calories per serving will be anywhere from 220 if you just add the four essential ingredients and up to four hundred and sixty, if you add all of the ingredients that I showed you but you can mix and match to suit your needs .
I really hope you enjoyed it and I hope you enjoyed making my absolute favorite go-to green smoothie recipe with me.
