Even the lowest body-fat percentage won’t save you from the effects of occasional bloating. When you’re looking to reduce bloating and get a flatter belly quickly, don’t go for another round of fasted cardio. Turn to this smoothie recipe instead.
Bloating Relief Kale and Berry Smoothie
This smoothie isn’t just delicious, it’s packed with nutrients as well.
The base is creamy and tangy Greek yogurt which has the protein you need to power through your day, along with a healthy dose of calcium as well.
To make it a little richer and velvety, add some almond butter (or peanut butter if you prefer). The almond butter will give you a ton of slow-release energy to keep hunger pangs away.
Then, the good stuff.
Frozen blueberries and pineapple have two functions. They’re delicious and they help with bloating.
Blueberries are packed with antioxidants and can help regulate genes that govern fat-burning and storage, helping reduce abdominal fat. The pineapple contains an enzyme called bromelain which helps digest protein and reduces bloating.
You’ll finish it off with a nutrient punch from a cup of kale.
Here’s the recipe:
- 3 ounces of fat-free Greek yogurt
- 1-2 tablespoons of almond butter
- ½ cup of frozen blueberries (don’t thaw these or the pineapple)
- ½ cup of frozen pineapple
- 1 cup ice
- 1 cup fresh kale
It’s that easy! Place all the ingredients in a blender and mix until smooth. If it’s a little too thick, add a few tablespoons of water. Drink it immediately for the best results.
