How to Make Detox Smoothie?
It is easy to ready the smoothie. First of all, add up all the ingredients to the grinder to grind them until it is a fine mixture. If you want to cold the smoothie then you may use frozen fruit or vegetables or add ice cubes and finally enjoy it.
Ingredients that should be avoided:
You have the choice to make the smoothie as you desire. But remember that some ingredients are not good if you are taking smoothie for weight-loss. Especially high sugar level.
If you are using some other food items to make your smoothie sweet like honey, maple etc. then add in a small amount, or it’s better to avoid it. In below detail, we will see the food items which should be avoided in the smoothie for weight loss.
It’s better to use fresh fruits or vegetables, or you can also use frozen things. Canned foods usually have preservatives or other such things that increase the level of calories. And their nutrient level has also lowered as compared to canned food. So don’t use the canned food for weight-loss smoothies.
They have high amount of calories like milk, yogurt, egg etc. and are not good for smoothies. But in some smoothies, we use yogurt that is not the common one. It’s a special Greek yogurt that is full of fats and proteins and very less sugar.
Juices are rich in sugar and other sweeteners. Especially those bought from the market. They just raise your calorie level nothing else. Most of such juice are impure, without fibers and should be avoided.
Some protein powders
By this, I mean those protein powders which have doubted components and will not support you in weight-loss. But there are many other sources of proteins like Greek yogurt, nuts, and butter etc. so you don’t need to be worried about the protein source.
If you are adding too much sweetener in your smoothie, then it is useless in weight-loss. You may add honey, maple syrup and many other sweeteners are available in the market suitable for adding into smoothies for weight loss.
No doubt your smoothie has fruit. But try to add the fruit that is not very sweet. It’s best that you remain stick to use only berries and avocados. If you add a lot of fruit in one smoothie glass, it may raise your sugar level or may cause digestive problems. So try to avoid them, and it’s good to use sweeteners. High sugar level will lead to increase your weight.
Try it once. You will not only like its taste but will also achieve your goal.
