Reduce belly fat – and that with a smoothie: is that even possible? We’ll show you our three most popular belly fat killer smoothies and also deliver the recipes!
Would you like to reduce your belly fat effectively? Then smoothies are the best way to help you! If you think of a creamy coconut milk smoothie with an iced banana and lots of dates, you are unfortunately wrong. Because especially in order to work off belly fat, you should avoid fruit smoothies. There are some types of fruit that can aid your digestion and help you lose weight. But please only enjoy these in moderation. What really helps with weight loss are green smoothies. We’ll tell you here whether it is also available in “delicious” and which ingredients you need for it!
It is not for nothing that a few years ago many women were on a pineapple diet. Although we now know that crash diets are useless, the pineapple has an advantage over other types of fruit that stimulates our fat loss: the enzyme bromelain. This enzyme mainly inhibits our tissue hormones. This causes the blood vessels to become more impermeable. The result: less water can get from the blood vessels into the tissue. In this way, not only are water retention reduced but no new ones are set up either. Great for your diet! Furthermore, the pineapple enzyme ensures that your blood circulation is improved.
Our favorite pineapple smoothie:
200 g lamb’s lettuce
150 g fresh pineapple
1 stick of celery
1 teaspoon nut butter (for example almond butter)
150 ml coconut water
The power tuber we all love will also help you reduce your belly fat. The curcumin it contains has many great properties: It has an anti-inflammatory effect and lowers your blood pressure. Your blood lipid levels will also improve with the help of Indian turmeric. Turmeric also helps with weight loss: the active ingredients stimulate the formation of bile. This is how fat splitting in the intestine really gets into full swing! Half a teaspoon a day is enough to benefit from the many health-promoting properties of turmeric.
Our favorite turmeric smoothie:
50 g fresh spinach leaves
50 g pear
50 g apple
1 teaspoon turmeric powder
200 ml of water
Papaya is also a powerful fruit when it comes to weight loss. Not only does it have a very low sugar content (only 32 calories per 100 grams), it also contains – similar to pineapple – a very effective enzyme: papain. This enzyme contains over 200 amino acids and is not only anti-inflammatory. It also helps to split complex protein chains and thus stimulate digestion. Thus papaya is a miracle weapon against your belly fat!
Our favorite papaya smoothie:
Half a papaya
200 g mango
200 g romaine lettuce
250 ml of water
Smoothies for flatulence – does it help?
It’s not just your belly fat that you can decisively attack with smoothies. Because depending on what you mix in your smoothie, you can also alleviate stomach discomfort or a bloated stomach. All you have to do is take a look at the baby section. The fennel-anise-caraway tea you can find is incredibly helpful for gas and stomach cramps. Admittedly, the ingredients are not exactly tasty. But when you mix the ice-cold tea into a fruity smoothie, the world looks completely different again:
