Weight Loss Smoothies That Do Not Taste Like a Diet!

By: Chardai Fisher

Hey guys, no matter how big, small, or thin, we are always looking for ways to tone, lose inches, and trim our tummies. Especially when aunt flow shows up or when the stress load of life happens to us, am I right? I know from my own experience if I have the tiniest amount of stress, anxiety, wings from ATL wings, ice cream at midnight, or way too many White Claws.  I am jumping into my skinny jeans instead of sliding into them. I find myself so upset that I look for a loose-fitting dress or my favorite pair yoga pants or leggings.  If you see me cruising around the valley in either of those and I am not sweaty from a hike, bike ride, or jogging your girl messed up, and Then I think its liquid diet time heheheheheh. So, you ask, “girl, what’s in your liquid diet?” Thank you for asking. First, let me say I love, and I mean love bananas, kale, and pineapples, so I will try not to be biased. I have my favorite go-to recipe from home, a favorite local spot that I circulate to on a regular. 

If you are on the go and have not time to make your own, and If ordering your smoothies and having it delivered is your style.  I have an amazing local spot that is perfect for you in the Moon Valley area.

Recipe:

  • ½ cup frozen blueberries
  • ½ cup frozen strawberries, raspberries or blackberries (your favorite berry)
  • ½ frozen medium banana
  • 1cup Almond milk of your choice
  • 1 cup of baby spinach 
  • 1 teaspoon of chia seeds for topping (if desired)
  • Place all ingredients besides the chia seeds into your blender and blend until smooth if your smoothie is too thick feel free to add more almond milk. If your making this for your squad pour into a chilled glass topped with blueberries and chia seeds for presentation HONEY!

I have not only made this recipe and seen results after having my daughter or just trying to lose water weight before a vacation or getting ready for a hot date.  I have done the work and the research to get the results that we all desire. We want smaller tummies, toned legs, slimmer arms, and killer butts so why not drink your way to that.  The key benefit of smoothies is hydration, vitamins, intake of fruit and veggies and it is a quick and easy meal on the go.  I always say it is easier to drink it when I am rushing from daycare back to work to a sales meeting and drop-offs.
