What makes the best weight-loss smoothie? Smoothies are not potions that make fat dissolve magically. Smoothies are best enjoyed as part of a balanced diet. The reason weight loss is frequently associated with smoothies is that drinking healthy weight loss smoothies for breakfast or a snack is a pragmatic solution to diet problems. Especially for those of us taking pains to drop some kilos. A good weight-loss smoothie contains a lot of fiber, is generally low in fat, has a lot of nutrients, and has a lot of protein.

We’ve listed the easiest breakfast smoothies to make and have on a daily basis. Breakfast is the best time to make your smoothie, as a filling portion of these will help you avoid feeling peckish until lunch time. All of these are low in fat and high in fiber and protein. And yes, they’re filling but not fattening, never crossing 500 calories per serving. So, lots of energy, satiety, and protein.

How to make a smoothie

You can quickly make your own smoothie with your favorite fruits or vegetables. The basic ingredients of a smoothie are fruits, something to add cream, and a liquid. Along with the fruits, add curd/yogurt or bananas to give the smoothie a creamy base. For the liquid, you can add milk or juice. Now let’s look at our best weight loss smoothie recipes:

1) Blueberry Banana Protein Smoothie

Add a handful of blueberries, a banana, and a scoop of protein powder. It’s really that simple. A fantastic blueberry + banana smoothie with a good dose of muscle-building protein! At 250 calories per serving, this is a great way to kickstart your weight loss journey!

2) A Healthy Green Smoothie

Gotta love smoothies that can be made in under 5 minutes.  


    Low-fat skim milk

    Chia seeds soaked in water

    Cinnamon (for flavor)


    Avocados (for the good fat)

    Organic raw honey


    Flax seeds 

Add these to your blender for a fabulous fat-burning breakfast smoothie.

3) Mango, Raspberry, and Vanilla Protein Smoothie

Another 5-minute smoothie. Same drill. Blend for a few minutes or until the desired texture is achieved.





    Scoop of protein powder

    Almond milk or low-fat skim milk

This smoothie is easy to make and very refreshing. This smoothie adds up to 250 calories, making it the perfect breakfast option for anyone looking to lose weight. Or use it as an evening snack. It'll easily hold you off until dinner.

4) Orange Smoothie

This one takes less than 5 minutes to make and is citrus heaven.




    Red pepper 



    Low-fat skim milk

Pack these into a blender and mix well until it turns into a bright orange smoothie. Open up the blender, and you’ll be hit by the refreshing aroma of the fresh orange that powers this smoothie. This smoothie is also packed with vitamin A, thanks to the apple, and tops off at 100 calories.

5) Chia and almond milk smoothie

How about a smoothie that combines almonds, cocoa, and the health benefits of chia seeds?

    Almond milk (or low-fat skim milk, if you do not like almond milk)

    Chia seeds (for omega-3)


    cacao powder (for chocolate flavor)

    Roasted almond flakes

    dark chocolate (broken pieces or shredded).

Blend the milk, chia seeds, cacao powder, and banana to make a rich, healthy smoothie. Once done, add the roasted almond flakes and chocolate as a topping to create a luxurious weight-loss smoothie.

6) Banana & Oats Smoothie

Not the easiest smoothie ever to make, but one that feels like a real breakfast. This is probably our favorite.


    Rolled oats (half cup)

    Chia seeds 

    Almond milk or low-fat skim milk

    Organic honey  


You have to prepare it and leave it overnight. But it’s worth the trouble because it gives you one of the best weight-loss smoothies in the world. Pour some water in a bowl and add the rolled oats and chia seeds. Mix well, cover the bowl with a lid, and keep in the fridge overnight. In the morning, blend this mix with honey and milk to create your breakfast smoothie.

7) Papaya and carrot smoothie

How about a more down-to-earth smoothie? Papayas and carrots blend well in taste to create a really great smoothie. Try it, and thank us later.

This is a low-calorie smoothie recipe that contains fiber and helps with weight loss. The combination of carrots and papaya doubles the health benefits. Both are rich in health-promoting nutrients. This smoothie is specifically beneficial to those who have constipation and indigestion issues.


    ½ Papaya  

    1 chopped carrot

    Soaked Chia Seeds


    Low-fat milk or orange juice

8) Ragi & Date Smoothie

Ragi is now a regular recommendation for weight loss in some parts of the country. It is rich in fiber and calcium and promotes fullness, which helps keep you away from mindless snacking. It also makes for a really good weight-loss smoothie.


    Ragi flour (2 spoons)

    4 seedless dates

    1 banana 

    Low-fat skim milk

    200 ml of water

Add the milk, ragi, and water to a bowl and bring to a boil. Ensure there are no lumps. Add this to the dates, milk, and banana in a blender and mix well.
