14 Easy to Make Weight Loss Smoothies

One of the crucial mistakes people make when they are trying to lose weight is tossed a bunch of vegetables or fruits in the blender/food processor, prepare a smoothie, and think everything will be better.

But the secret lies in a balanced smoothie with more protein than sugar.

When you add one banana, apple, peach, some berries, and honey in a smoothie, you are getting much more sugar than your body can process.

Smoothie Recipes for Weight Loss

Here are some smoothie recipes for weight loss that I have tried and can vouch for them.

weight loss smoothies

Blueberry Smoothie

Who says that simple smoothies cannot be helpful?

This weight loss smoothie is based on blueberries, a fruit rich in antioxidants and vitamin C.

You need:

  • one cup of blueberries
  • one cup of milk
  • one tablespoon of flaxseeds

Peanut Butter and Banana Smoothie

With just peanut butter and banana, this smoothie gets a milkshake-like consistency.

You need:

  • one medium sized banana
  • one tablespoon of peanut butter
  • one cup of almond milk

Terrific Banana Drink

Banana drink

You’ll notice that banana is among the main ingredient in this list, thanks to its low calories – high nutrients ratio.

For two servings of this smoothie you need:

  • 1 banana
  • 1 orange
  • ½ glass low-fat or fat-free yogurt (Greek Yoghurt)
  • 1 tbsp. coconut oil
  • ¼ tbsp. ginger powder
  • 2 tbsps. flax seed
  • 2 tbsps. Whey powder

Spinach and Avocado

Spinach Avocado Smoothie

For two servings of this smoothie, you need:

  • one avocado
  • one cup of spinach
  • one medium banana
  • a tablespoon of peanut butter (try to use natural peanut butter)
  • one cup of milk

You can use it as a meal replacement in the morning as it provides you with sugar, vitamin C, and protein to last until the next meal.

Raspberry and Banana

Raspberry Banana smoothie

Raspberries give this smoothie a little sour flavor, but you’ll get tons of healthy nutrients.

Ingredients are:

  • one banana
  • one cup of raspberries
  • one cup of coconut milk

Chocolate Raspberry Smoothie

I know I said at the beginning you need to watch your sugar with the smoothies, but you can add some chocolate if you want.

For this recipe you need:

  • half a cup of soy milk
  • 6 oz of vanilla yogurt
  • one cup of raspberries
  • ¼ chocolate chips or dark chocolate

Chocolate Cherry Smoothie

As with most chocolate smoothies, you need to use soy milk or nut milk to avoid sugar.

For this recipe you need:

  • one cup of soy milk
  • one tablespoon of cocoa powder
  • two cups of cherries
  • one small size banana
  • two tablespoons of chia seeds

Mixed Berries Weight Loss Smoothie

Berries are rich in antioxidants, and people usually opt only for blueberries in their smoothies.

But you can mix several berries for an antioxidant-rich drink.

Make sure to use unsweetened coconut milk.

For two servings:

  • one cup of coconut or almond milk
  • one cup of blueberries
  • one cup of blackberries
  • one cup of strawberries
  • five dates

Orange and Citrus Smoothie

Citrus Smoothie

People forget how beneficial citrus fruits are for weight loss purposes.

Thanks to their richness in vitamin C, acids, and antioxidants, they can put your metabolism and fat burning rate into overdrive.

For this smoothie you need:

  • 1 cup of soy milk
  • 6oz of lemon yogurt
  • one grapefruit
  • one orange
  • a tablespoon of flaxseeds

Apple Smoothie

For just one serving you need:

  • ½ cup of soy milk
  • 6oz vanilla yogurt
  • one medium apple
  • 2 tablespoon of peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon of apple pie spice

Peach Milkshake

Due to the high density and consistency, many of the smoothies for weight loss look like milkshakes.

But nothing comes close to the peach milkshake.

For one serving you need:

  • 1 cup of almond milk
  • 1 cup of peaches
  • Half a banana
  • a teaspoon of coconut oil

Pineapple Smoothie

The good thing about the pineapple smoothie is that you can use any milk.

Pineapples are not rich in sugar, so they be used with normal milk, but if you like to maximize the potential of this smoothie for weight loss, use almond, nut or soy milk.

  • one cup of milk
  • 4oz canned pineapple tidbits
  • 1 tablespoon of flaxseeds

Strawberry Smoothie

Strawberry Smoothie

I mentioned previously that berries are excellent ingredients for a smoothie for weight loss.

Strawberries are some kind of underrated in that regard, so I would like to share with you my strawberry smoothie.

From ingredients standpoint, you need:

  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 cup of strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons of flaxseeds

Berries and Pomegranate

Another berries smoothie, this one comes packed with protein and healthy fats.

Here are the ingredients for two servings:

  • 1 cup of blueberries
  • 2 cups of strawberries
  • some hemp seeds
  • 1 teaspoon of acai berry powder
  • ½ cup pomegranate juice
