Smoothie is a refreshing, nutritious drink of all possible tastes and colors. It is not just how a smoothie looks like, but what all it can give to your body.
Since nothing is as perfect as it may seem at the first sight, you should beware of the mistakes we often do when mixing these life refreshments.
Eliminate these mistakes as soon as possible and make your smoothie even healthier than before. If you wish to lose excess kilograms, we give you few tips.
1. Your smoothie recipe has fiber deficiency
Fiber is like a magic weight loss pill, but you will not pay your whole property in the pharmacy for it. It is basically free and what is more important, it is absolutely bio and free of chemical products. You can find it in freely available sources and it can perfectly feed you for a longer time, so you will not be unnecessarily overeating during the day.
2. Your smoothie misses protein
Your smoothie can have a saturated green color, but that does not mean that it contains the protein you need to maintain enough energy throughout the day. Your smoothie should contain at least 10 grams of protein which you can achieve the best when you add milk, soy milk, Greek yogurt, cottage cheese, soft tofu, beans, nuts or peanut or almond butter.
3. Too much fruits = too much sugar
Of course, this drink does not have to just taste good. It is mainly about being healthy, full of vitamins, fiber and proteins derived from vegetables and fruits. But even in this case, you should not exaggerate anything. Drinking a cold and creamy smoothie made from different fruits can not be beneficial for your body and diet.
4. You add ingredients into the smoothie which are “healthy”
Let’s get back to calories for a moment. Unfortunately, the fact that something is healthy does not mean that it has low calories. Some food, such as avocados, woodpeckers, nuts, whole yogurts, flavored milk, fresh juices, and even fruits such as apples, pears, mangoes, cherries and bananas, contain a lot of calories. That is why you should use only a small amount of these ingredients in your smoothie and you will see great results.
5. Smoothie replaces your main meal
Proteins and carbohydrates are essential after training. You should only understand smoothie as a snack. Smoothies tend to contain around 300 calories or more, so combine according to your daily intake of calories. To avoid taking hundreds of excess calories, the easy solution is to divide your favorite smoothie recipe into two halves.
6. Prepare it today, drink it tomorrow
The last mistake we would like to point out is that a smoothie should always be prepared just right before you consume it. However, if you are out of time and want to prepare a smoothie for breakfast, do not forget to place it in the refrigerator and consume it the next morning or within a maximum of 24 hours.
