Blueberry Fat Loss Shake

by Vashte on June 12, 2012

Ingredients:

  • 150g blueberries
  • 1 Cup almond milk
  • ½ Tblspn ground linseed
  • ½ tspn ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 30g 100% natural protein powder
  • 1 tspn pro-biotic powder
  • ice

Blend in your magic bullet. Serve creamy and smooth. Enjoy

Tips for Weight Loss:

  • Use filtered or alkalised water as opposed to milk.
  • Ice makes your healthy smoothy thicker and fluffier.
  • Use the blender over just shaking your smoothie. The blender increases the bulk of your smoothie adding volume. – I recommend the MAGIC BULLET. You will never look back once you use one of these. EASY to clean.
  •  You know the old saying – breakfast is the most important meal of the day. DO NOT SKIP IT. If you do not like eating breakfast- these smoothies are the perfect solution. They are light but filled with right nutrients to get your metabolism started and help prevent the common blood sugar crashes at 10am for those who skip breakfast.
  • Protein in your healthy smoothie will assist in building muscle, and  help prevent blood sugar fluctuations. Muscle burns fat. You WILL NOT look like a body builder simply by adding 30g of protein powder to your slimming smoothie.  Its OK :)
  • Choose fruit with LOW GI levels. (GI is basically the sugar level of foods and how they are absorbed into your body. For weight loss you want to choose LOW GI FOODS.  Here are some fruits  I particularly like for smoothies: berries – frozen or fresh; apples; peaches; plums.  Avoid bananas when focused on weight loss.
