Smoothie Recipes for Weight Loss

These smoothie recipes for weight loss enable you to make quick, easy and nutritious meals and snacks when time is tight.

We use these smoothie recipes for weight loss for breakfast and snacks during the morning and afternoon.

They’re a particularly good way to ensure you get a healthy breakfast.

Plenty of fresh fruit for fibre, vitamins and antioxidants and if you add in some protein you can control your hunger too.

Smoothies and Shakes…

What’s the difference between a smoothie and a shake? Pretty arbitary really. I guess a smoothie could be classed as fruit based and a shake milk based. All the recipes on this page contain either or both fruit and milk and we don’t really make a distinction.

We always put some protein in our smoothies and shakes. You can do this in several ways.

Use some milk or soya milk and add in some low fat yoghurt and/or use a protein meal replacement powder.

You can find a wide range of protein powders in health food, nutrition and sports shops. Pick one with around 10-15gms of protein in a serving and no more than 5gms of fat. Vanilla is the most versatile flavour. There are some suggestions in our supplements review.

We always start the day with a smoothie for breakfast. With the girls to get ready for school, getting ourselves ready for work…its a mad rush!

If you’re going to be struggling for lunch, make an extra serving and take it with you.

They’re great for mid-morning and afternoon snacks and for before or after a workout at the gym.

Making a Smoothie…

Our smoothie recipes for weight loss require a blender.

Simply put some fruit, juice and/or milk in the blender together with the protein powder if you’re using one, any other ingredients, some ice and blend it for 30-60 seconds. Simple!

They all contain between 10 and 30gms of protein and around 250-350 calories. Those with milk or soya milk contain more protein as 250mls of each contains 9gms of protein.
