Burn More Fat With This Smoothie - Grapefruit Smoothie

By Marc

Burning fat includes a good balance of diet and exercise. In terms of your nutrition, smoothies are a great place to burn fat. They often include fruits and other ingredients that help to give you energy and boost your metabolism. Give some of these smoothie recipes a try.

Mango Smoothie

If you like mango fruit, then you will love this fun smoothie! It only uses a few simple ingredients and is very easy to make. Plus, it includes multiple ingredients that help to burn fat, including the mango, lime juice, and avocado. Don’t worry; it won’t taste like a vegetable. The sweetness of the fruit far outweighs the flavor of the avocado. Just get out your blender and add mango pieces, a mashed avocado, vanilla yogurt, and lime juice. You can add a little bit of sugar if you want, but it is not needed. Finish it off with some ice or half a frozen banana.

Citrus Smoothie

You can also use your favorite citrus fruits and combine them with ice and your choice of dairy product to make a sweet, creamy smoothie that helps you to lose weight. Some citrus fruits that usually go good are lemons, oranges, and grapefruit, but go ahead and use any combination of fruits you have at home. You want to make it creamy with a little bit of yogurt and some skim milk. You can use flavored yogurt like lemon, or just plain fat-free yogurt. Add some ice and a little flaxseed for added fat burning potential.

Berry Smoothie

Berries are at the top of the list for fruits that help to burn more fat and calories. Strawberries in particular contain a lot of antioxidants and are high in fiber, which helps you to increase your fat burning. You can make a simple smoothie with strawberries and other berries, with skim milk, yogurt, and flaxseed oil. For a thicker smoothie, add some oats to it.

Blueberry Smoothie

Another version of the berry smoothie is one that contains blueberries. This provides a slightly different flavor, but the same health benefits of a strawberry or mixed berry smoothie. Plus, blueberries contain a lot of nutrients and antioxidants that make it a popular superfood. Blueberries taste great just with milk or yogurt and ice, but you can also add in raw honey or frozen banana instead of ice.

Try out your own combinations using these and other fruits, plus add at least 45 minutes of exercise 3 times a week for a healthier and younger looking body.
