Smoothies are possibly the perfect diet for weight loss.

Why?

Because they are packed with essential nutrients that keep your body nourished all day.

There’s virtually no prep work or cleanup, they only need a few ingredients, there’s no cooking, and the result is a meal shake that will keep you full.

But not all meal shakes will do.

In this collection of weight loss smoothie recipes, you’ll find something to satisfy every craving from a hearty breakfast that satisfies a pie-inspired dessert. Each meal shake contains the perfect blend of muscle-building protein, satiating fats, and digestion-aiding fiber for a balanced meal.

Since I’ve taken care of scouting the nutritional winners, all you have to do is pick a recipe, start the blender, and enjoy!

These are my favorite weight loss smoothie recipes.

1. FRUIT SMOOTHIES

Fruits are like people: They come in all sorts of shapes, sizes, colors, and styles, and each has its temperament. Some are so sweet you can barely stand it, others so bitter you avoid them at all costs.

But regardless of their individual qualities, all fruits have something to offer and deserve our utmost respect.

That said, my favorites are red fruits. While studies are linking nearly every kind of fruit to some sort of health benefit, the most evidence tends to pile up around fruits that are red or reddish, like purple or orange fruits.

For example, a study in the journal Metabolism found that eating half a red grapefruit before a meal may help reduce visceral fat and lower cholesterol levels.

Another study found that tart cherries reduce belly fat; blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries have also been linked to lower abdominal fat accumulation.

So while several different fruits will show up, expect many of your smoothies from this article to have a cool red or purple hue. That’s a sign that you’re getting a massive hit of antioxidants and fat-fighting fiber.


a. Apple Smoothie

Pink Lady apples are among the most nutrient-rich varieties, according to a study at the University of Western Australia. This smoothie combines the apple with vanilla and cinnamon flavors to give you a uniquely autumnal fruit drink.

Ingredients

> ¼ frozen banana

> ½ Pink Lady apple with peel, seeded and quartered

> ½ cup unsweetened almond milk

> 1 teaspoon flaxseed oil

> 3.14 dashes of ground cinnamon

> 1 scoop vanilla plant-based protein powder

> Water to blend (optional but recommended)

NUTRITION: 273 calories / 7.4 g fat / 27 g carbs / 5.5 g fiber / 15 g sugar / 26 g protein

b. Peach Banana Smoothie

Like a light bowl of oats, this is a great meal in a glass. Unless it’s August and the peaches in your neck of the woods are perfect, opt for frozen peaches instead. The vanilla in the protein powder will combine with the peaches for a bright, warm, and hearty drink.

Ingredients

> ½ peach

> ½ frozen banana

> 2 tablespoons rolled oats

> ½ cup unsweetened almond milk

> 1 teaspoon ground flaxseed

> 1 scoop vanilla plant-based protein powder

> Water to blend (optional)

NUTRITION: 277 calories / 4 g fat / 33 g carbs / 6 g fiber / 14 g sugar / 28 g protein

c. Ginger Smoothies

Ginger packs high levels of health-boosting phytonutrients. But use fresh ginger: Chances are you bought that powdered ginger in your cabinet three years ago when you made a pumpkin pie, and it’s been losing potency ever since. To keep fresh ginger on hand, break it into small chunks and freeze it, then allow it to defrost before grating.

Ingredients

> ½ cup of frozen strawberries

> ¼ frozen banana

> 1 cup unsweetened almond milk

> 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, peeled and chopped

> 1 teaspoon ground flaxseed

> Dash of ground pepper

> 1 scoop plain plant-based protein powder

> Water to blend (optional)

NUTRITION: 264 calories / 5 g fat / 26 g carbs / 6 g fiber / 11 g sugar / 29 g protein

d. Strawberry Pistachio Cream

Those Hulk-colored nuts have their special fat-burning powers.

In a recent study, two groups followed a nearly identical diet and exercise regimens; however, one of the groups was fed unsalted pistachios, while the other group was not. Surprisingly enough, the pistachio group members lost more belly chub and showed better improvements in their blood glucose and cholesterol levels than the control group participants.

Ingredients

> ½ cup frozen strawberries

> ¼ cup pistachios

> ½ avocado, peeled, pitted, and quartered

> 3 ice cubes

> 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

> 1 scoop vanilla plant-based protein powder

> Water to blend (necessary)

NUTRITION: 266 calories / 9 g fat / 18 g carbs / 5 g fiber / 8 g sugar / 30 g protein

e. Banana Split

Valentine’s Day in a glass. Don’t underestimate the healing powers of dark chocolate — it’s not there as a gimmick. When you combine fruit and dark chocolate (at least 70 percent cacao), you accelerate the release of butyrate, a compound made in your large intestine that tells your fat-storage genes to chill out.

Ingredients

> 1 frozen banana

> 4 fresh cherries, pitted

> 2 dark chocolate squares

> 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

> ½ cup unsweetened almond milk

> 1 scoop vanilla plant-based protein powder

> 2 ice cubes

> Topping: 1 more cherry

NUTRITION: 280 calories / 3 g fat / 35 g carbs / 6 g fiber / 17 g sugar / 28 g protein

2. GREEN SMOOTHIES

When you think of green drinks, you probably think first about green juices. Juicing has been an insanely hot nutritional trend ever since Beyoncé claimed to use the Master Cleanse to get ready for Dreamgirls.

Popping into a juice bar for a cold cup of extruded kale juice may be all the rage, but when it comes to both nutritional impact and weight-loss power, juices can’t hold a candle to smoothies.

First, most commercial juices use apple juice, which is a high-sugar, low-nutrient base. (Most of the nutritional impact of an apple is in its skin, not the white pulp where most of the juice is extracted from.)

Second, juicing strips all the natural fiber out of produce, which is like stripping the political backstabbing out of House of Cards: The rough stuff is what makes it good.

And third, juices lack fat and protein; without these crucial elements, you’re getting no fat-burning, metabolism-boosting benefits.

Next time you want to drink your veggies, blend up one of these seriously nutritious recipes.


a. Lemon Kale Protein Detox

Putting lemon in your blender is like taking out a nutrition insurance policy for your smoothie. That’s because a significant percentage of the antioxidant polyphenols in any food or drink break down before they reach your bloodstream. But researchers at Purdue University discovered that adding lemon juice to the equation helped preserve the polyphenols.

Ingredients

> ½ lemon, peeled and seeded

> ½ frozen banana

> 1 cup kale

> ½ cup unsweetened almond milk

> 1 scoop plain plant-based protein powder

> 3 ice cubes

> Water to blend (optional)

NUTRITION: 254 calories / 7 g fat / 20 g carbs / 5 g fiber / 10 g sugar / 30 g protein

b. Sprig Of Parsley

Image for post
Image for post

This is the world’s most overlooked superfood: Studies show that parsley is actually denser with nutrients than kale, dandelion greens, or romaine lettuce. Combine it with superheroes like watercress and chia and you’ve got a mighty fat-fighting drink.

Ingredients

> ¼ cup fresh parsley (include the stems)

> ½ cup watercress

> ½ cup frozen strawberries

> ½ frozen banana

> 1 teaspoon chia seeds

> 1 scoop plain plant-based protein powder

> Water to blend (optional)

NUTRITION: 214 calories / 2 g fat / 22 g carbs / 4 g fiber / 10 g sugar / 28.5 g protein

c. Romaine Around

Image for post
Image for post

I think of romaine lettuce as the crispy stuff at the bottom of a Caesar salad, but it’s one of the 10 most nutritious vegetables around, and higher in fiber than almost any other form of lettuce. And because it’s mostly water, it makes this smoothie a real thirst-quencher.

Ingredients

> 1 cup romaine lettuce

> ½ cup spinach

> ½ apple with peel, seeded and quartered

> 1 tablespoon chia seeds

> ½ cup unsweetened almond milk

> 1 scoop plain plant-based protein powder

> Water to blend (optional)

NUTRITION: 280 calories / 5.8 g fat / 27 g carbs / 10 g fiber / 12 g sugar / 201 g protein

d. Hemp Cat

Image for post

When you combine hemp and chia seeds, it gives you a super dose of omega-3 fatty acids. And hemp seeds, by weight, provide more protein than even beef or fish.

Ingredients

> ¾ cup baby kale

> ½ frozen banana

> 1 teaspoon hemp seeds

> ½ tablespoon chia seeds

> ½ cup unsweetened almond milk

> 1 scoop vanilla plant-based protein powder

> Water to blend (optional)

NUTRITION: 270 calories / 6 g fat / 26 g carbs / 6 g fiber / 10 g sugar / 29 g protein

e. Tea For One

I can’t recommend green tea enough as a smoothie enhancer. In fact, people who drink green tea regularly have nearly 20 percent less body fat than those who don’t, according to one 10-year Taiwanese study. And EGCG, the unique ingredient in green tea, can deactivate the genetic triggers for diabetes and obesity.

Ingredients

> 1 cup green tea

> ½ frozen banana

> 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

> ⅛ avocado

> 1 scoop vanilla plant-based protein powder

> Water to blend (optional)

NUTRITION: 245 calories / 6 g fat / 23 g carbs / 5 g fiber / 11 g sugar / 26 g protein

3. NUTTY AND CHOCOLATELY

Have you ever heard of the “health halo”? It’s a term nutrition experts use to describe foods that use a healthy-sounding word like natural on their labels or add ingredients that people think of as good for you (“Now with chia!”), but which are really junk at heart.

These smoothies are the reverse of that theory. These drinks are tremendously nutritious — packed with as much, or more, fiber, protein, and healthy fats as any other drink.

But they might seem like they’re bad for you.

After all, how can drinks that seem like they came right from the ice cream shop flatten your belly so effectively?

These are the drinks you’ll whip up on a night when you want something to satisfy your ice cream jones. They’re the recipes you’ll lean on when your kids are complaining that they want something sweet for dessert.

And they’re the drinks you’ll use to reward yourself after a hard day at work or in the gym. Deep, comforting, and delicious, these filling smoothies taste more like dessert than what they really are — powerful weight-loss weapons.

a. Dark Chocolate Banana Nut

If you want your weight loss smoothies to taste like dessert, this recipe should be your go-to. The density of the banana will have you convinced you’re drinking a milkshake, while the omega-3s in the walnuts will keep your mind sharp and your belly lean.

Ingredients

> ½ banana

> 1 teaspoon dark chocolate morsels (dairy-free)

> ⅛ cup chopped walnuts

> 1 cup unsweetened almond milk

> 6 ice cubes

> ⅓ cup chocolate plant-based protein powder

> Water to blend (optional)

NUTRITION: 229 calories / 11 g fat / 26 g carbs / 7 g fiber / 10 g sugar / 28 g protein”

b. Chocolate Decadence

I love this recipe so much I had to include it here as well.

Ingredients

> ½ banana

> ¼ ripe avocado, peeled, pitted, and quartered

> ¼ cup black beans

> ½ cup unsweetened almond milk

> ¼ cup chocolate plant-based protein powder

> 6 ice cubes

> Water to blend (optional)

NUTRITION: 300 calories / 9 g fat / 34 g carb / 11 g fiber / 9 g sugar / 25 g protein

c. Chocolate Bean

I know what you’re thinking…

Beans? In a smoothie?

Yes, you read that right.

Use canned or pre-cooked beans for a thick, earthy protein and fiber punch. One study found that people who ate ¾ cup of beans daily weighed 6.6 pounds less, on average than those who didn’t, even though the bean eaters took in more calories.

Ingredients

> ½ frozen banana

> ¼ cup black beans

> 1 tsp nutmeg

> 1 cup unsweetened almond milk

> ⅓ cup plant-based chocolate protein powder

> Water to blend (optional)

NUTRITION: 280 calories / 3 g fat / 31 g carbs / 7 g fiber / 9 g sugar / 31 g protein”

d. Peachy Keen

As fruits go, bananas and peaches are polar opposites: bananas provide fiber and rich consistency, while peaches add antioxidants for very few calories.

Ingredients

> 1 cup frozen peaches

> ½ banana

> 1 cup unsweetened almond milk

> 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

> ⅓ cup vanilla plant-based protein powder

> ½ cup ice cubes

> Water to blend (optional)

NUTRITION: 287 calories / 3 g fat / 36 g carbs / 5 g fiber / 22 g sugar / 29 g protein

One of my favorite almonds butter is Justin’s. It’s made with dry-roasted almonds and a bit of sustainably-sourced palm fruit oil, which lends the spread its creamy texture. (They also make all-natural peanut butter cups that will make you question everything you thought you knew about the PB-chocolate combo.)

Ingredients

> ¾ frozen banana

> 2 teaspoons almond butter

> ¾ cup unsweetened almond milk

> 1 scoop chocolate or vanilla plant-based protein powder

NUTRITION: 340 calorie/ 15 g fat / 36 g carbs / 10 g fiber / 13 g sugar / 20 g protein

4. SAVORY

A smoothie can be a lot of things: a pre- or post-workout boost, a cold and refreshing thirst quencher, a thick and creamy dessert, a perfectly balanced breakfast.

But one thing most of us never think of when we think of smoothies is as a comfort food.

These recipes, stake out new territory in the smoothie landscape, a culinary point of departure into a taste realm you might not have considered. While these smoothies are still cold and refreshing, they’re going to taste more like a savory soup than a bright pick-me-up.

a. Tabasco Cherry

This one has a kick to it, softened by the cherry aftertaste.

Ingredients include;

> ½ cup cherries

> ½ frozen banana

> 1 tsp Tabasco sauce

> ¼ lime

> ¼ cup unsweetened almond milk

> 1 scoop plant-based plain protein powder

> 3 ice cubes

> Water to blend (optional)

NUTRITION: 232 calories / 2 g fat / 28 g carbs / 3.5 g fiber / 10 g sugar / 26 g protein

b. Potato? Sweet!

Bananas and sweet potatoes both add starch, but that’s why the cinnamon is in there. Adding cinnamon to a starchy meal helps stabilize blood sugar and ward off insulin spikes, according to a series of studies printed in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

Ingredients include;

> ½ cooked sweet potato, cooled, with skin off

> ½ frozen banana

> ½ teaspoon cinnamon

> 1 cup unsweetened almond milk

> 1 scoop plain plant-based protein powder

NUTRITION: 280 calories / 5 g fat / 34 g carbs / 6 g fiber / 14 g sugar / 28 g protein

c. Mr. Bean

You won’t even taste the secret ingredient here.

Ingredients include;

> ½ frozen banana

> ¼ cup kidney beans

> ½ cup frozen strawberries

> 4 mint leaves

> 1 cup unsweetened almond milk

> ¼ scoop plant-based plain protein powder

NUTRITION: 340 calories / 4.5 g fat / 53 g carbs / 11 g fiber / 14 g sugar / 24 g protein

d. Fall Harvest

The nutty, roasted flavor of green tea steps in brilliantly here as a base for a delicious smoothie that will have you reminiscing about the Thanksgivings of your childhood.

Ingredients include;

> ½ cooked sweet potato, cooled, with skin off

> ½ banana

> ⅛ tsp nutmeg

> ½ tsp cinnamon

> 6 medium-sized basil leaves

> ¼ cup green tea

> 1 cup unsweetened almond milk

NUTRITION: 283 calories / 5 g fat / 35 g carbs / 7 g fiber / 14 g sugar / 28 g protein

e. Pumpkin Spice

Unlike the pumpkin spice lattes you love, this drink has actual pumpkin in it.

One-third cup of pumpkin provides protein, fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, and 16% of your recommended daily intake of vitamin C — nutrient researchers say is directly related to the body’s ability to burn through fat. In fact, one study by researchers from Arizona State University showed deficiencies of vitamin C were strongly correlated with increased body fat and waist measurements.

Ingredients include;

> ½ frozen banana

> ⅓ cup pumpkin puree

> 1 teaspoon flax seeds

> ¼ tsp pumpkin spice

> 1 cup unsweetened almond milk

> ⅛ teaspoon vanilla extract

> 1 scoop plant-based plain protein powder

NUTRITION: 292 calories / 5 g fat / 33 g carbs / 7 g fiber / 14 g sugar / 29 g protein

5. NUTRITIONIST FAVORITES

For this selection, I researched some of the country’s top nutritionists and I was able to discover their favorite weight loss smoothie recipes. Pay attention to the protein counts — if it’s under 25 grams, you don’t want them as a meal replacement, but rather paired with a meal.

a. Wake-Up Call

“Combining a low-calorie, non-dairy smoothie first thing in the morning with a roughly even portion of high-quality protein and good carbs is a great start to anyone looking to lose weight and be healthy.

Starting the day off with weight loss smoothie recipes such as this will pull your body out of its overnight fasting state, and the “carbohydrates from healthy, mixed berries combined with high-quality protein will give you the quick energy and protein uptake your body needs first thing in the morning without being ‘too much.”

Ingredients include;

> ½ cup frozen mixed berries

> Handful of spinach

> 8 oz unsweetened Silk almond milk

> 1 scoop plant-based vanilla protein powder (Reisinger uses VegaOne Vanilla Performance Protein)

NUTRITION: 230 calories / 2.5 g fat / 20 g carbs / 5 g fiber / 7 g sugar / 26 g protein

b. Coconut Cashew Protein Smoothie

“This is my go-to smoothie recipe for weight loss because it contains a balance of protein, fat, and carbs which promote stable blood sugar levels, and in turn, your pancreas can secrete your fat-burning hormone, glucagon!

And it’s so good, you can drink one every morning and not get sick of it.”

Ingredients include;

> ½ banana

> 1 tablespoon of cashew butter

> ¼ cup full-fat coconut milk

> 2 scoops dairy-free PaleoMeal protein powder

> 1 scoop of Espresso Dynamic Greens

> 2–3 ice cubes

NUTRITION: 315 calories / 21 g fat / 26 g carbs / 4 g fiber / 9 g sugar / 14 g protein

c. Kale Recharge Smoothie

With such a low protein count, this smoothie wouldn’t qualify as a meal replacement, but it does pair well with an omelet, as the nutritionists suggest.

Ingredients include;

> 1 frozen, very ripe banana

> 1 Tbsp fresh parsley (or cilantro)

> ¾ cup spinach, loosely packed

> 1 tsp ginger, grated

> ¾ cups curly kale, stems removed, loosely packed

> ½ cup carrots, chopped

> 1 tsp lime juice

> 8 ounces water

> 4 ice cubes

NUTRITION: 58 calories / 0 g fat / 14 g carbs / 3 g fiber / 5 g sugar / 2 g protein

d. Raspberry Chocolate Smoothie

Image for post

Photo by KELLY SCOTT on Unsplash

I really love this weight loss smoothie recipe because it tastes super-decadent, but in reality is just loaded with a ton of natural, unprocessed, and healthful ingredients.

The cocoa powder is a good source of flavonoids that are both brain and heart-healthy, and also makes the smoothie taste like I’ve added a ton of chocolate.

In addition to the healthy cocoa, this smoothie also has other healthy ingredients like raspberries that are a source of immune-boosting vitamin C, and the spinach that’s a source of energizing B vitamins.

If I have this smoothie post-workout, I’ll also add a plant-based protein like sprouted rice or pea protein to help my muscles recover more quickly.”

Ingredients include;

> ½ banana

> 1 handful spinach

> ½ cup raspberries

> 1 tablespoon almond or cashew nut butter

> 2 tablespoons raw cocoa powder

> 10 oz unsweetened almond, hemp or coconut milk

> 1 scoop or serving plant-based protein powder (optional)

NUTRITION: (With scoop of protein) 391 calories / 15 g fat / 38 g carbs / 12 g fiber / 12 g sugar / 34 g protein

NUTRITION: (Without scoop of protein) 257 calories / 15 g fat / 32 g carbs / 11 g fiber / 10 g sugar / 8.6 g protein

e. Cassetta’s Pumpkin Pie

“Pumpkin pie without the pie, all year round?

Yes, please!

Pumpkin is a good clean burning carbohydrate and when you add the protein powder you’ll balance your blood sugar as well as add the perfect components for a post-workout recovery meal.”

Ingredients include;

> 1 cup canned pumpkin

> ½ banana

> 1 cup coconut or almond milk

> 2 tablespoons of chopped pecans

> 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

> ¾ scoop Vega Vanilla protein powder

> Handful of ice cubes

NUTRITION: 331 calories / 10 g fat / 42 g carbs / 11 g fiber / 17 g sugar / 24 g protein

Differences Between Regular and Greek Yogurt

The Greek process makes this type of yogurt different from regular yogurt in the following ways:

1. ​Taste and texture — Greek yogurt has a thicker texture than the regular one, which makes it an ideal smoothie thickener as well as a great substitute for sour cream and crème Fraiche. The taste is tangier — if you haven’t tasted it before, definitely give it a try and see how you like it.

2. Carbs — Greek yogurt contains about half the carbohydrates of regular yogurt. For the lowest carb count, choose the yogurts that contain less added sugar.

3. Protein — Greek yogurt contains roughly double the amount of protein than regular yogurt. This makes it ideal for workout smoothies, as well as feeling fuller for longer if you’re looking to lose weight.

4. Sodium — Greek yogurt is lower in sodium compared to regular yogurt — about half the amount!

5. Fat — Normally, Greek yogurt contains almost three times the saturated fat of regular yogurt. That’s why I always choose one of the non-fat or lower fat varieties.

Greek yogurt is available in plain or flavored, different fat concentrations in the milk, and from sources around the world.

Weight Loss Smoothie Recipes With Oats

Oatmeal as a breakfast cereal has been hailed by many nutritionists as an ideal meal to jumpstart the day.

Oats provide innumerable health benefits that boost bodily health in many ways. Oats are considered a boon for heart patients as they contain antioxidants called avenanthramides that lower down blood pressure levels.

As an anti-inflammatory food, oats help improve the health of the respiratory system. Even with all these and more health-giving properties, oats may not sit well with everyone’s palate.

Some may still like to have idli or poha in breakfast instead of porridge made with this super light food. However, that doesn’t mean that they can’t avail the various benefits of oats, especially if they are looking to lose some weight.

Another way to consume oats instead of eating it is by drinking it in the form of smoothies. Oats instantly emit their nutrients into a smoothie, making it an ideal weight loss drink.

How Oats Help Promote Weight Loss?

Oats are full of soluble fibers that break down the food faster, which results in easy digestion. Oats contain very few calories so the body burns its own calories to digest this food.

This results in a considerable elimination of overall calories from the body.

Beta-glucan, a compound found in oats, creates a thick coating on the walls of the stomach, which makes it feel full for a longer period of time, keeping a check on overeating.

Oats Smoothie Recipes

Here are some recipes of smoothies with oats as one of the ingredients that may prove to be the best addition to your diet chart.

1. Berry And Beetroot Smoothie With Oats

NB; Another noticeable thing about oats is that they are highly rich in proteins. According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), 100 gms of oats contain a high amount of proteins (approx. 17 gms).

This means that oats can replenish the body with the lost energy during a workout session and re-energize it for the next one.

So, revamp your diet chart now and make a place for these oats smoothies to accelerate the pace of your weight loss journey.

Weight Loss Smoothie Recipes Without Banana

With their abundance of fiber, potassium, and vitamin C, it’s no wonder why bananas are one of our favorite fruits to incorporate into our smoothie recipes.

Not only are they rich in vitamins and minerals, but they also make for some super creamy smoothies. We do realize, however, not everyone likes bananas as much as we do, and others may be allergic.

So, we’ve compiled a roundup of some of our favorite banana-free smoothies.

Luckily, there are tons of substitutes for bananas in smoothies, and we have incorporated many of them here.

Mangoes, for example, make for a thick and creamy smoothie. They’re also are rich in vitamins A, C, fiber, folate, and potassium.

Apples are another great substitute. Not only do they provide smoothies with the sweetness of bananas, but the fiber content adds a wonderful thickness and helps to satiate cravings.

Avocados and chia seeds, two superfoods, give smoothies a milkshake-like consistency and provide a healthy dose of Omega-3 and 6 fatty acids.

Check out my list for even more delectably delicious, banana-free options. From the spicy to the sweet, these smoothies have got it all — except bananas.

Weight Loss Smoothie Recipes for Dinner

Smoothies for dinner might not be the norm, but there are plenty of reasons to sometimes swap out your usual chicken-and-veggies combo for a nutrient-dense drink. These include:

1. Having a big, late lunch and not being super hungry.

2. Eating like crap all day and feeling your body crying out for some actual nutrition.

3. Not feeling like cooking anything, period.

For nights when you hit one (or all) of those checkmarks, try one of these clean — and seriously satisfying — picks from some of my favorite food bloggers.

1. The Green Thing Smoothie

Image for post

Spinach? Check.

Parsley? Check.

Avocado, carrot, apple, and flaxseed? Check that times four.

This is basically the most nutrient-dense smoothie you can drink, which makes it perfect for those regrettable days when you had a doughnut for breakfast and pizza for lunch.

2. Carrot Cake Smoothie

Image for post

Everyone knows that having dessert for dinner is a bad idea. But when you trade carrot cake for this creamy carrot cake smoothie, it’s totally OK.

It’s got cashews and hemp seeds to keep you full all night, plenty of cinnamon and ginger for maximum flavor.

3. Coconut Almond Ginger Protein Shake

Image for post

This thick, creamy shake is loaded with almonds, coconut, and vanilla — for nights when you really want to eat clean but don’t feel like drinking a salad for dinner.

4. Postworkout Green Smoothie

Image for post
Image for post

Sure, it might be designed to replenish you after your sweat session. But with plenty of protein, healthy fats, complex carbs, and green vegetables, this drink’s got all the makings of a well-rounded meal.

5. Red Velvet Beet Smoothie

Image for post
Image for post

It might be named after a cake, but this smoothie definitely counts as dinner.

You’ve got your veggies (beets), your fruit (strawberries), your carbs (banana), and your protein (Greek yogurt).

…And you don’t even need dessert afterward.

Weight Loss Smoothie Recipes for Diabetics

Having diabetes doesn’t mean you need to deny yourself all the foods you love, but you do want to make healthier food choices. One good choice is to eat a lot of fruits and vegetables, which are heavy in nutrition but light in calories.

Some fruits and vegetables are better for managing your diabetes than others. Look for produce that’s low on the glycemic index and load, meaning it won’t spike your blood sugar.

It’s also important to get plenty of calcium- and probiotic-rich dairy foods to fortify your bones and provide good gut bacteria. Good sources are low-fat milk, kefir, and Greek yogurt.

These foods are essential to any diabetes diet, yet you don’t need to eat them with a fork or even a spoon. You can pack a lot of nutrition into one smoothie and get a delicious treat. As long as you stick with healthy ingredients and don’t add extra sweeteners, you can enjoy these treats on a regular basis.

Just remember when you do blend fruit into your smoothies to count them as part of your daily fruit allowance so you don’t overdo it on carbohydrates. Even natural sugar can drive up your blood sugar if you eat too much of it.

Here are 10 diabetes-friendly smoothie ideas to get you started.

1. Superfood smoothie

This smoothie has it all — antioxidant-rich berries, healthy fat from the avocado, greens, and protein.

Just be careful when buying berry yogurt that you choose a brand that’s low in sugar, such as Siggi, or stevia-sweetened. Or opt for unsweetened yogurt.

This recipe has 404 calories, so use it as a meal replacement instead of a snack.

Ingredients include;

> ¾ cup unsweetened almond milk

> ½ cup organic, wild blueberries, frozen

> 1/3 cup organic strawberries, frozen

> ½ avocado

> 1 tsp. organic flaxseed

> 1 handful of organic spinach

> 100g berry yogurt (1 small container)

> 1 tbsp. chia seeds

> 1 scoop Vega Sports Protein*

> 1 scoop greens superfood

> 4 ice cubes

2. Lower-carb strawberry smoothie

This smoothie’s creator has diabetes and discovered this recipe after some careful experimentation.

Not only does it taste great, but also it won’t wreak havoc on your blood sugar.

The soymilk and Greek yogurt make it smooth and creamy without adding much extra sugar. You can even bump up the fiber more with a tablespoon of chia seeds.

Ingredients include;

> 5 medium strawberry

> 1 cup unsweetened soy milk (or unsweetened almond milk)

> 1/2 cup low-fat Greek-style yogurt

> 6 ice cubes

3. Berry blast smoothie

Image for post
Image for post

The berry base of this smoothie makes it sweet, yet it’s still low on the glycemic index.

If your berries are tart, the coconut milk and mango will add some natural sweetness. You’ll also get a healthy dose of omega-3 fatty acids from the flax.

This recipe makes two smoothies.

Ingredients include;

> 1 cup frozen blueberries

> 1 cup frozen blackberries

> 1 cup frozen raspberries

> small handful frozen mango chunks

> 2 cups unsweetened, pure coconut water

> 3 kale leaves

> 2 TBS flax meal

4. Peach smoothie

Image for post
Image for post

This peach smoothie makes for the perfect afternoon refresher. It’s simple to make with only five ingredients. Plus, it’s loaded with calcium and is light enough that it won’t weigh you down.

Add 1 tablespoon of chia seeds and keep the peel on the peach for more fiber. More fiber is helpful in this smoothie because this recipe calls for 4 ounces of sweetened yogurt, which has the potential to raise your blood sugar.

Ingredients include;

> 1 medium fresh peach, peeled, pitted, and chopped or frozen equivalent

> ½ cup skim milk

> 1 4-ounce carton non-fat vanilla yogurt

> 1 cup of ice cubes

> ground cinnamon (to taste)

5. Joann’s green smoothie

This smoothie sneaks in a green vegetable, spinach, but camouflages it with fresh berries and chocolate powder.

Choose stevia- or erythritol-sweetened protein powder to avoid artificial sweeteners.

Chia seeds and pumpkin seeds add rich texture, fiber, and omega-3 fatty acids.

Ingredients include;

> 2 cups spinach

> 1/2 cup strawberries, with tops still on

> 1/2 cup blueberries

> 1 scoop of sugar-free chocolate protein powder

> 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

> 1 tablespoon ground flax seed

> 1/4 cup soaked chia seed (it will be thick and gelatinous) [about 2 tablespoons dry seeds]

> A small handful of raw pumpkin seed or walnuts [nutrition information below is for 2 tablespoons walnuts]

6. The Greenie Green Smoothie

Image for post
Image for post

If you’re having trouble meeting your daily green requirements but aren’t a big fan of salads, why not drink your veggies?

This take on the increasingly popular green smoothie uses nutrient-dense kale or spinach balanced with tart apple and pear.

Lime juice and mint complement the blend, adding a burst of flavor and freshness.

Skip the agave nectar, which may have negative effects on your metabolism.

Ingredients;

> 11/2 cups water

> 1 organic ripe green apple cut into chunks, core discarded

> 1 organic ripe green pear cut into chunks, core discarded

> 2 cups organic roughly chopped fresh kale or spinach

> 1/2 cup organic roughly chopped fresh mint

> 20 chilled green or moscato grapes

> 12 ice cubes

> 3/4 tsp cinnamon

> 1 tsp stevia or 1 tbsp agave nectar, or more to taste (we use 1 packet of Truvia)

> 1 lime (juiced, or more to taste)

7. Snickers smoothie

Are you craving the chocolate-peanut taste of your favorite candy bar, but don’t want to send your blood sugar soaring?

Get the same flavors without the spike by whipping up this candy-inspired smoothie.

For less artificial sweetener, swap the 1 tablespoon of sugar-free caramel syrup for 1 teaspoon of caramel extract.

This smoothie is high in protein and calcium.

Ingredients include;

> 1 cup almond milk, unsweetened

> ½ cup unsweetened plain yogurt (or unsweetened plain kefir)

> 2 packets stevia (I use Sweet Leaf brand)

> 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder

> 5 drops English Toffee stevia

> 1 heaping tablespoon creamy peanut butter or almond butter (no sugar added)

> 1 tablespoon PaleoFiber powder (or substitute chia seed or ground flaxseed meal)

> 1 tablespoon collagen hydrolysate (or Vanilla protein powder of your choice)

> 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

8. Chia seed, coconut, and spinach smoothie

Image for post
Image for post

This rich and creamy smoothie contains only 5 grams of carbohydrates.

To keep the carbs down, use unsweetened light coconut milk. For added sweetness, consider adding a few dashes of powdered Stevia.

Ingredients:

> 1 and 1/4 cup of coconut milk

> 2 tbs of chia seeds

> 1 cup of spinach

> 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I use designer whey french vanilla)

> 2 ice cubes

9. Diabetic oatmeal breakfast smoothie

Image for post
Image for post

What better way to start your day than with some hearty, fiber-dense whole grains, plus potassium and vitamin C?

The uncooked oats also provide resistant starch, which is an excellent source of fuel for gut bacteria and can improve insulin levels

This breakfast smoothie packs a lot of nutrition into one glass.

Here are a few tips to make this smoothie work better for your blood sugar:

1. Choose smaller bananas and don’t forget to add those carbs to your daily count so you don’t go over your allotment.

2. Turn this recipe into four servings rather than two.

3. Use unsweetened almond or soymilk instead of skim milk to further reduce the carbs.

Ingredients

> 1 cup uncooked oats, ground in spice or coffee grinder or food processor

> 2 frozen banana, cut into small chunks first

> 3 cups skim milk

> 2 Tbsp ground flax-seed

> sugar substitute

> 2 tsp instant coffee (optional)

10. Berry delicious nutty milkshake

Nuts are an important component of any healthy eating plan, and this recipe combines some of the most nutritious varieties, almonds and walnuts.

Plus, you get greens from the kale, calcium from the milk, and antioxidants from the strawberries.

All this for only 45 grams of carbohydrate!

Ingredients include

> 2/3 cup of milk ( skim, soy, goats or other high-protein milk)

> ½ medium banana, peeled

> 1 tablespoon of peanut, walnut, almond or other high-quality nut butter

> 1 tablespoon of almonds

> ½ cup of fresh kale

> ½ cup of frozen unsweetened raspberries

> 4–5 medium frozen unsweetened strawberries

> ½ cup of ice cubes
