Vegetable Smoothies for Weight Loss
vegetable smoothies recipes for weight loss

The best healthy green smoothies for weight loss. These easy weight loss smoothies are packed with greens (spinach or kale), fruit, and protein.

Two bright green smoothies topped with hemp seeds sit on a marble countertop with lemons in the background. Beautiful, healthy, green weight loss smoothies.

Some of our functional smoothie recipes have been getting lovely reviews lately (see these: Chocolate Maca Smoothie for hormone balance, and Green Detox Smoothie for liver support). As I know I’m not alone in gaining a few (10!) pounds during quarantine, I thought it a great time to share my favorite healthy green smoothie for weight loss. This one was inspired by a health focused smoothie created by an RD for Blenders.

If you’re a green smoothie beginner, I’d recommend starting with this tropical Green and Glowing Smoothie or Peanut Butter Green smoothie. If you’re looking for protein shakes you’ll love these 5 recipes.

Fresh lemons, avocado, ginger, Zola coconut water, kale, hemp seeds, and a nectarine sit on a marble countertop.

Ingredients for Weight Loss Smoothies

  • Coconut water for hydration and natural electrolytes.
  • A little avocado provides creaminess and healthy fats to keep you fuller longer. Learn How to Freeze Avocados. I also use them in this Chocolate Avocado Smoothie.
  • Protein from a scoop of pea protein powder (my favorite linked in the recipe cared below) and hemp seeds (feel free to sub chia and flax).
  • Ginger (or turmeric), like in our Ginger and Turmeric Shots recipes, is great for immune support.
  • Greens like spinach or kale add loads of vitamins, minerals, and fiber.
  • Lemon and frozen peaches (I used a nectarine here as that’s what I had) for flavor and vitamin C.

How to Make these Smoothies for Weight Loss

A high powered blender is best for green smoothies without any discernible pieces of greens. Start with a bit of coconut water in the bottom of the blender to help spin the blades. Then top with the remaining ingredients and I like lots of ice. Blend until smooth, adding more coconut water if needed to thin, and ice to thicken.

Top with a little hemp seeds if you’d like for texture. Enjoy right away or freezer for later. If you’d like to see all of our smoothie recipes in one place click here.
