11 Weight-Loss Drinks You Can Make at Home in No Time at All
If you're trying to lose weight, little things matter — especially what you're drinking. Soda, juice, and coffee-shop drinks can rack up hundreds of calories and tons of sugar in a day. While nothing beats water for helping the body stay energized and hydrated, these drink recipes all contain ingredients known to help boost metabolism, keep you feeling full longer, and end dreaded bloat. Cheers to that!
Apple Cider Vinegar and Honey Drink
Debloating Papaya Smoothie
Iced Green Tea Lime Cooler
There are so many health benefits of green tea, and weight loss is just one of them! Several studies show that green tea helps to suppress appetite and also boosts metabolism, so go ahead and kick back with our green tea lime cooler. Cooling and refreshing, we recommend making an entire pitcher to enjoy throughout the week.
Berry Chia Fresca
Because chia seeds expand when introduced to liquid, they can help you feel full for longer while also getting a hefty dose of omega-3s and fiber. This chia agua fresca is the perfect way to cool off on warmer days. Lower in sugar than traditional recipes, it's also made with low-calorie, fiber-rich berries.
Pineapple Kale Smoothie
This 350-calorie smoothie is chock-full of nutrients as well as Greek yogurt and avocado, both known for helping with weight loss thanks to their high-fiber and high-protein content.
Low-Glycemic Green Juice
Skip the sugar-laden latte for this detoxing green juice instead. This recipe is made from an array of ingredients that have natural detoxing properties: watercress helps energize cleansing enzymes in the liver, and, like celery, it's a natural diuretic. Spicy ginger also helps by aiding in digestion and boosting metabolism.
The Glowing Green Smoothie
Kimberly Snyder, clinical nutritionist, recommends her Glowing Green Smoothie to all of her celeb clients (of which there are many). The filling drink is full of all-natural ingredients that help to clear skin, energize the body, and stimulate weight loss.
