Add Power Packed Ingredients
Smoothies are packed full of nutrition, but it is a good idea to add some powerhouse ingredients as an added bonus. These additions will multiply the nutritional benefits of your drink. These can include pumpkin seeds, coconut oil, Brazil nuts and almonds.
Avoid Some Ingredients Altogether
Like with everything else, you cannot use everything available to make a smoothie; especially if you are using smoothies as a weight loss tool. Canned fruits are a big no-no; fresh ingredients are always the best. Similarly dairy products like yogurt and milk are smoothie staples but they add a ton of additional, non essential calories.
As you work towards weight loss with healthy smoothies, don’t forget that it is only one part of your overall weight loss plan. You should also focus on burning calories through exercise as well.
