FLAT BELLY SMOOTHIE – serves 1
3 heaped tablespoons of Greek yoghurt
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1/2 frozen banana
1/2 cup frozen pineapple
Handful of kale
1Tbs almond butter
1Tbs chia seeds
Why does this particular combination lead to a flat stomach? This smoothie contains loads of ingredients which are believed to reduce belly fat. Firstly Greek yoghurt is high in protein which will keep you full for longer and aid in weight loss. The pineapple, containing an enzyme that helps ease digestion and banish bloat, provides the smoothie with natural sweetness and hides the taste of kale. Adding kale to any smoothie is a cheeky way to get in those extra greens and packs a punch of fiber to keep things moving. Bananas are an absolute smoothie ingredient must have. Especially if frozen they will create a creamy texture whilst adding high contents of potassium, magnesium and carbohydrates for energy. The coconut water will rehydrate you and fill your belly with essential animos and vitamins whilst the chia seeds are full of healthy fats, omega 3s and protein. Finally the blueberries are very high in antioxidants and are known for increasing the metabolism and reducing belly bloat.
Blend all ingredients together and sip your way to a flat stomach!
