Today I am trying for the first time a green smoothie from a recipe that I saw a lot on YouTube that is supposed to be drunk in the evening before bed and can help to lose belly fat!
I usually make delicious fruit smoothies with sometimes a bit of green that I drink in the morning or during the day, but this one is only green vegetables I usually don't like to eat.
A Green Smoothie Recipe for Weight Loss!
A green smoothie is much healthier than a fruit smoothie because it contains only greens and after having made it, I am not sure if I will like the taste and be able to go with my plan of drinking one glass for a week, hoping it will help me lose weight a little bit faster than only exercising an hour per day.
I have been exercising for 2 months every day and had lost some weight, but that is very slow, and I'd like to go a bit faster.
I am experimenting here so don't take this as a miracle recipe for weight loss, I may adjust it as I go to find something that taste OK for me and that I can consume.
These are the ingredients I put in the green smoothie:
- 1 lemon
- 1 lime
- a bit of ginger
- 2 small cucumbers
- Coriander or Cilantro
- Ground orange peel
I did not have exactly what they suggested, but they all agreed on coriander, lemon, lime cucumber and ginger.
That's going to be hard, I hate cucumbers!
The lime and lemon are OK but maybe it's going to be too much in the mix, I don't know. Ginger is also something I'm not used to eat, so I use a very small piece.
In the recipes I have seen they suggest to add turmeric or pepper, which I did not have so I tried ground orange peel.
I added the water and you can see the result.
I have 1 glass and a half of this vegetable mixture now.
I tasted it a bit, and it seems like I have too much lemon or ginger in it.
It is also not liquid enough, so I added much more water and it looks like it is more drinkable that way.
Wish me luck! I might not have the same smile tomorrow.
Are you drinking green only smoothies or juices? Do you have any suggestions?
