While we feast on our eyes on spectacularly executed smoothie bowls, for instance, there are a few cautions to keep in mind when it comes to weight loss.
Popular smoothie bowls can hinder your perfect weight-loss intentions. While they are healthy, filled to the brim with fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds, some can pack 700 calories and more with all those wonderful toppings.
“Filled to the brim,” is the key phrase. Here are a few ways to keep smoothies healthy and weight loss friendly.
How to Make Weight Loss Smoothies
Here are some tips for building your smoothie “the right way,” advises dietitian Sammy Haber of Spoon University.
Keep it snack size
It doesn’t fill you up like a meal, so don’t make it one. Keep your smoothie snack size, around 150-250 calories, and try it in between meals for optimal benefits.
Load it up with veggies
Dark, leafy greens have minimal calories, virtually no taste once blended and make an awesome addition to smoothie bowls. They’ll make your smoothie much bigger in volume, lend tons of vitamins and minerals, and overall make the smoothie bowl way more nutrient-dense.
Watch the toppings
Make sure that your healthy efforts aren’t overshadowed by toppings that make your smoothie look more like froyo. The picture might not be as pretty without them, but those toppings can add a good amount of excess calories and sugar. Skip the toppings altogether or stick to one piece of fruit max for the healthiest smoothie bowl to fill you up, nourish your body and help you lose weight.
