These weight loss smoothie recipes are fantastic to drink while you are trying to drop extra pounds because they are extremely filling and very nutritious.
All of these recipes are yogurt based, which means that you get digestive benefits in the form of probiotics, unlike with sugary juice-based mixes, which are largely empty calories.
These are low calorie and comprehensively nutritionally sound, full of antioxidants, fiber, and calcium.
The best part about these particular recipes is that all of the ingredients are wholesome. Any store bought brand and almost all of the vendors who sell them freshly blended are using a base product that is full of additives and unnecessary sugars. These, on the other hand, are all made of fresh, nutrient dense fruits and yogurt.

If you are trying to use smoothies for dropping weight, you should keep in mind that liquid calories count. If you’re going to drink one, you should drink it in place of a meal, or next to a meal that has been otherwise reduced in calories. Drinking one on the side of a meal of a size that you would normally eat could actually end up resulting in weight gain due to the additional calories. It’s best to drink them in place of a meal or alongside a small meal.
