BRETT HOEBEL’S ANTI-BLOAT SMOOTHIE RECIPE
He was a trainer on The Biggest Loser season 11, and also the creator of the 20 Minute Body book and videos. So start your day off with Brett Hoebel’s anti-bloat flat belly smoothie this celebrity fitness trainer and author gives his clients! It’s high in fiber, which prevents constipation. Additionally, it contains natural digestive enzymes that help to break down hard to digest foods that can cause bloating. If you tried and LOVED this Flat Tummy Anti-Inflammatory Smoothie/Cocktail (errr, yes we also made it into a cocktail version – don’t do that with this one!) they have very similar ingredients, so you’re sure to enjoy this smoothie by Brett Hoebel.
Our testers used whole flax seeds instead of ground, which of course you can do in a power blender since most of them are able to quickly grind flax seeds for you! They also really loved the ginger and pineapple flavor together.
- 1 cup water
- 3/4 cup papaya
- 1 cup pineapple
- 1/2 pear, sliced
- 1 tsp ginger, fresh
- 1 tbsp flaxseed, ground
- 2 dashes of cinnamon
- 1/2 cup ice
- 2 mint leaves (optional garnish)
- Place all ingredients into the blender in the order listed, secure lid and blend until smooth.
