How to Lose Belly Fat
While a weight loss smoothie can help you lose belly fat, it’s no cure-all. It must be a part of a healthy diet and regular exercise.
According to health.com there are specific things you can do to lose belly fat and fat overall.
Avoid Added Sugar
There are two types of sugar – added and natural sugar. Natural sugar is sugar that occurs naturally in the food you’re eating. Added sugar is sugar that’s added to foods during preparation.
Here are a few examples of added sugar:
- White sugar
- Turbinado sugar
- Brown sugar
- Maple syrup
Look for smoothies that use only fruit to sweeten them. Avoid smoothies with turbinado sugar, honey, fruit juice from concentrate, or other added sugars. They just increase the calorie count with little to no nutritional benefit.
Eat More Protein
Research shows this macronutrient can reduce cravings, boost your metabolism, and help you eat less calories during the day!
There is a study that suggests protein may be linked to lower levels of abdominal fat. You can increase the amount of high-quality protein you consume by eating eggs, fish, legumes, meat, nuts, and dairy products.
Look for smoothies with Greek yogurt, nut butter, cashews, cottage cheese, or high-quality protein powder without additives.
Eat More Fiber
Look for smoothies with plenty of soluble fiber! The best way to get fiber is to eat more plant-based foods, specifically vegetables and fruit.
Soluble fiber slows the migration of food through your digestive system, helping you feel full for a longer period of time.
These foods are high in soluble fiber:
- Sweet potatoes
- Flax seeds
Flat belly smoothies are a great way to up your nutrients, but exercise is an important part of losing weight!
Try to fit aerobic exercise into your daily routine! Aerobic exercise like running, brisk walking, swimming, or jump roping can permit major reductions in visceral fat. Visceral fat is the fat in your stomach that wraps around your internal organs.
The best way to make the most of weight loss smoothies is to enjoy them in conjunction with a healthy exercise routine and well-balanced diet.
Tips for Weight Loss Smoothies:
- Avoid added sugar like turbinado, sugar, maple syrup, fruit juice concentrate, canned fruit in syrup, or honey.
- Instead, use fruit to naturally sweeten your smoothies. Bananas, mango, pineapple, apples, and berries are great options.
- Add leafy greens whenever possible! Spinach is the best option if you don’t want to taste it too much. Greens add tons of nutrients and antioxidants to a smoothie.
- Add protein to smoothies to keep you full for longer. Nut butter, chia seeds, Greek yogurt, cottage cheese, oats, flax seeds, and protein powder are all good options.
- Include fiber for a healthy gut and good digestion. Raspberries, avocado, oats, apples, almonds, and pears are all rich in fiber.
- Avoid sugary liquid bases and opt for plant-based milk instead. Unsweetened almond milk is my favorite liquid base. Whenever I add juice, I always use juice that’s not from concentrate and I add it in small quantities.
Flat Stomach Smoothies

6. Banana Avocado Smoothie
Avocadoes are rich in monounsaturated fat, specifically oleic acid, which has been linked to decreased inflammation and a lower risk of heart disease!

11. Tropical Carrot Banana Smoothie
This tropical smoothie has a sunny orange hue and it’s packed with beta-carotene from the carrots. Carrots are high in fiber and low in calories, which makes them great for smoothies!
If you have a high-speed blender, you can chop them and add them raw. If you don’t, it’s best to steam them first to achieve a smooth texture.

The healthiest ingredients to add to smoothies are plant-based whole foods with no additives or refined sugar. It’s best to use a combination of ingredients that provide high-quality protein, fiber, and complex carbohydrates. Berries, leafy greens, nuts, oats, cucumber, avocado, chia seeds, pineapple, and nut butter all great options!
There is no cure-all fruit that gives you a flat stomach right away. There are fruits that are packed with antioxidants, fiber, and nutrients that help promote weight loss though. Raspberries are high in flavonoids and fiber, plus low in calories! Apples, berries, oranges, and avocadoes are great options too!
While smoothies can help you lose weight, it really depends on a variety of factors. Weight loss is a long term habit that includes regular exercise, healthy eating, and a decrease in calorie consumption. Smoothies are a great way to consume antioxidants, fiber, and protein all in one drink.
Avoid smoothies that contain lots of added or refined sugar and unhealthy fats. Takeout smoothies often have added sugar, ice cream, fruit juice concentrate, or other added sugars in them. It’s best to make smoothies at home so you can control what goes in them. Fill them with healthy fats (like nuts and avocadoes), leafy greens, frozen fruit, and other whole foods.
