Green smoothie time, people! All right, to make a green smoothie it’s
simple. We know how to do that but this particular green smoothie is going
to help us lose weight. This has some ingredients in here that are going to
help your thermogenic, they’re going to help improve our metabolism,
bodies, just our natural ability to lose weight. We’re going to start off
with the fruit, okay? This is a honeydew melon and, you know, even the
seeds are used.
These seeds are actually where our multivitamin supplements come from. Just
crushed up seeds from melons and grapes and it’s the second most nutritious
fruit on the planet they say. Number one is po po. All these black seeds,
okay. I’m going to throw that skin away. Now, some banana, some pear, some
apple, an orange. And again I’m going to leave the white pith on, okay? The
white pith is really high in a lot of minerals, a lot of fiber and things
like that so I’m not going to cut it off. Leave it on, okay? A whole
Now we’re going to put in the dark leafy greens, we’re going to turn it
into the green smoothie now so baby spinach, kale, okay? Get it in there
and that’s, oh hang on some grapes. There you go, put them on top, some
grapes. So that’s our green smoothie, right? That’s how you make a green
smoothie. You put a combination of fruits and dark leafy greens in there
and blend it up, okay? So green smoothies on their own will actually really
help you with losing weight, okay?
When our bodies are given the right nutrition, we don’t crave the fatty
foods and the crappy foods and the processed foods, okay? So you get the
right nutrition into your body and you start losing weight naturally. The
other things that are really going to help boost this smoothie to help you
lose some weight are these super foods I’ve got here. Particularly things
like chia seeds, okay? These are really high in the good fats, omegas, that
are going to help us remain full for longer. So some chia seeds. This is a
weird one, powder. It’s a superfood. We’re going to put in half a teaspoon
of that. Now cayenne pepper, OK? It’s going to increase our bodies
temperature and metabolism, this is really going to give it a big kick.
Now, I don’t want to use too much but, you know, feel free to add in more
chili if you want, that’s just going to be half a teaspoon. Some honey,
just a teaspoon, put that in there and some coconut oil, okay? Coconut oil,
hemp oil, flax seed oil, all these natural oils are really good for us .
They say we can have up to three tablespoons of this a day and the fats are
going to help all these sugars be processed in our bodies a lot slower. So
instead of getting a big sugar rush, the fats slow down the absorption of
the sugars into our body, so that’s a good thing. So, this is how you
strain it out. And a cup of ice. OK, we need ice. Gotta get the ice out of
here. Whoop, there we go, that’s good enough, and a cup of ice and blend it
up for about 90 seconds.
All right, we’re done. All right, it’s our green smoothie. okay? Total
nutrition in here, got the stems, the leave,s the piths, the cores. All
the fiber in there, very nutritious for us, so it’s going to stop us, you
know, from craving all the crappy food out there. Then all the super foods
that are in here that are naturally going to increase our metabolism and
thermogenic ability in our body and balance our blood sugars with the
cinnamon and everything. So, here goes.
All right guys, I’m back again making a green smoothie. This time we’re
going to make a bit more of an intermediate to advanced level green
smoothie. All right, so it’s going to be less fruit and more dark leafy
greens, not vegetables. All right, so we’re going to start off with the
