The 2 Week Diet
Today, a lot of people are raving about the awesome benefits one gets from smoothies.  In fact, there are now thousands and thousands of recipes of these yummy drinks – from belly fat blasting smoothies to just a simple thirst quenching smoothie.  And because more and more people today are more conscious of their health, we have found a way to replace breakfast with something that basically gives one the satisfaction of having a full breakfast – smoothies.  For years, smoothies have been made as meal replacements, snacks, and even something that can help you get that flat tummy you have always wanted.  So if you’re looking for a yummy breakfast smoothie, I have some that you might want to try.  I have tried these, and they have proven to be very yummy and at the same time effective!


Dark Chocolate Smoothie

Every woman I know loves chocolates.  I mean, really, who doesn’t?  So anyway, you might be thinking how chocolate can make a belly fat blasting smoothie.  Well, the right kind of chocolate in the right amount can aid in your weight loss program and can be a great breakfast smoothie.  How?  Well, the dark kind of chocolate contains enzymes that suppresses your appetite and makes you feel full longer as you progress through the day.  Simply put, it helps you slim down. 

Put a chunk of dark chocolate, a cup of milk, and a tablespoon of cocoa powder in the blender.  You can add some ice if you want it cold.  When you get that creamy blend, then your breakfast is ready. 

Chocolates and weight loss.  Love these words!

The main ingredients of this smoothie are bananas and oatmeal.  However, there are added ingredients that will enhance the flavor and make it yummier than you could ever imagine.  Mix together ½ cup of bananas, ¼ cup of whole grain oats, ½ cup of skim milk, 1 teaspoon of honey, and ½ cup of ice (or more depending on how cold you want it to be).  Blend them all together to create a belly fat blasting smoothie that can also protect you from heart diseases, lower your blood pressure and your cholesterol, and even fight against cancer.  What more can you ask for?

To make a serving for you and your partner, prepare 1 cup of raspberries, ¼ cup of cherries, ¾ cup of milk, 2 tablespoons of honey, 2 teaspoons of finely grated ginger, and 1 teaspoon of ground flax seed (your local store should have this).  Combine all ingredients and blend them all together until smooth.  Enjoy your berry belly fat blasting smoothie. 

Smoothies are very easy to prepare and convenient for those who don’t have a lot of time to sit down at the table and eat a proper breakfast.  These smoothies will definitely get you loaded to last the day.
