4 Yummy Slimming Smoothie Recipes For Women

When you’re trying to slim down, it’s always good to have something to look forward to having on your diet plan…

Something that’s tasty but won’t undo all of the hard work you’ve put into your workouts

Something that’s filled with nutrients and moves you closer to your goals…

And did I mention tasty?

And in my opinion, few things fit the qualifications of a slimming snack like a good smoothie.

Smoothies make for a great slimming snack because they’re diverse, easy to make, filled with essential vitamins and minerals, and when done right, can help your body torch fat and build muscle...

So here are 4 slimming smoothie recipes that’ll make a great treat for you:

Spinach Flax Protein Smoothie

Don’t let the spinach throw you off. This blend is perfect for those of you who don’t particularly enjoy spinach because it’s also packed with mango, pineapple, and banana. Also, the protein powder will give this smoothie a deliciously creamy taste. It’s got plenty of fiber to help keep your stomach healthy and will keep you full with its high protein content.
