My Everyday Weight-loss Smoothie
This is my favorite weight-loss smoothie recipe, because it gives me great energy and keeps me full for the entire morning.
The combination of ingredients in this smoothie makes the perfect breakfast for weight-loss – it contains good whole carbs, good protein and healthy fats. This recipe is filling and nourishing, but it’s also feels refreshing.
This recipe is totally dairy-free, gluten-free and sugar-free.
My Go-to Smoothie
I uploaded my latest “What I eat in a day to lose weight” video yesterday, and this smoothie is what I had for breakfast that day – so I thought I’d share the full recipe here on the blog today.
I’ve been loving this smoothie recipe for a while now (it seriously is my “go-to” weight-loss smoothie recipe), and so I’m feeling a little selfish for only sharing the recipe here on the blog now (sorry!).
Anyway, you can enjoy it now! I hope that you love it as much as I do!

-1/2 cup frozen blueberries
-1/2 banana (can also use 1 whole)
-2 Tablespoons dry whole rolled oats
-handful baby spinach
-1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or water, or another milk)
-1 flat Tablespoon unsweetened almond butter (optional)
-1 teaspoon honey (optional)
-ice to taste
I like to use 1/2 banana and 1 teaspoon honey to sweeten this smoothie, but you can use 1 whole banana and just leave the honey out.
Adding the almond butter is totally optional, but it adds good protein to the smoothie – if you don’t have almond butter, you can just eat 14 raw almonds on the side (14 raw almonds has the same amount of calories as 1 flat Tablespoon almond butter).
-blend all of the ingredients together until smooth
-serve chilled and enjoy!
