HEALTH BENEFITS OF INGREDIENTS FOR WEIGHT LOSS

Bananas for Weight Loss
Bananas are rich in insoluble fiber, it makes up more than half the banana!

This will help promote regularity, which is important for weight loss.

Pineapples for Weight Loss
Pineapples are higher in sugar that other fruits so if you’re trying to lose weight, keep this ingredient to a minimum.

Bromelain is an enzyme found in the stem of pineapples (which a Blendtec or Vitamix can easily pulverize!) Bromelain is an anti-inflammatory and it also breaks down protein – perfect for our next ingredients that helps with weight loss!

Almonds for Weight Loss
Almonds are a satiating snack that will keep you from getting hungry and snacking more items, which will add more calories when you’re trying to eat less!

As long as you eat almonds in moderation, such as a small handful or adding them to a smoothie like this one, they can definitely help you to lose weight.

Cinnamon for Weight Loss
Cinnamon can imitate insulin in the body and control its levels which helps regulate blood sugar.

Increase blood sugar levels can cause excess fat to be stored, so it’s important to maintain and regulate blood sugar.

One study showed that adding cinnamon to a meal can lower its glycemic index by 18-29%! Cinnamon also can increase metabolism similar to hot peppers, which will burn more calories and help with weight loss.

Spinach for Weight Loss
Spinach is a nutritional powerhouse that is low in calories and carbohydrates (only 7 calories and 1 gram per cup) but super high in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.

You get much needed iron, folate, magnesium, AND calcium, all without dairy or meat!

Adding spinach and making it a GREEN SMOOTHIE, can definitely assist with weight loss.

    Question: what us the serving size for the 117 calories. I know it makes 3 cup servings, but do you drink the whole three cups at a time to equal the 117 calories? Thank you!

    1. Hi Chantal! You can substitute dates for whatever natural sweetener you have on hand (maple syrup, honey, stevia). By excluding the dates however the fiber content will go down. Do you hate eating dates by them selves or don’t like in smoothies? Ideally you will just get the sweetness and fiber when blended in a smoothie (the fiber is better for weight loss by helping with digestion) but if you really hate them I would use Stevia to not add calories without fiber. Let me know what you end up using and how you like it! ~Tarashaun

    Super tasty! Though, I had to use 3 times the almond milk to get the right consistency. I only had frozen bananas and pineapple on hand, so I think that’s what made it thicker. But, no worries, now I have extra smoothie for tomorrow!

    1. Thanks Michelle! Yes sometimes you have to adjust the ingredients to get the consistency you like. 🙂 I’m always fine with leftover smoothie! You could try freezing the rest in ice cube trays and re-blending when you’re in a hurry or using to cool another recipe! 🙂 ~ Tarashaun

  3. I have tree nut allergies and can’t eat spinach for medical reasons. Are there other ingredients that can be used as substitutes?

    1. Hi, there! For the spinach, you can substitute with Kale or Romaine lettuce and you can use coconut milk instead of the nut milk. As far as the almonds, just omit them. You can add a protein powder as a substitute. Try that out and let me know how it tastes!

  4. 5 stars
    Super yummy! I was hesitant at first to try this green smoothie as this is my first one ever but I must say I was pleasantly surprised with the flavors. If this is what they are going to taste like than count me in for the healthy lifestyle. Thanks so much!

  5. Corri Montgomery

    Hi, the recipe makes 3 cups but how much of that is one serving? Do you drink the whole 3 cups worth at once? Thank you.

    1. Hey Corrie, yes I drink all 3 cups! You should drink what feels right to you. You can always save the rest for a snack later in the day if you can’t drink it all. 🙂 ~ Tarashaun
