Nutritional Benefits of a
Healthy Low Fat Smoothie

Healthy low fat smoothies recipes will make you one of the most nutritious — and delicious — meals on earth.

Healthy low fat smoothie recipes are loaded with phytonutrients, vitamins, minerals and enzymes that come in a whole-food form.

In addition, when fruits and vegetables are blended, the plant fibers are broken down just like when you chew them; the blender literally does most of the “chewing” for you. And chewing food more thoroughly means that you'll absorb more of the nutrients.

Healthy low fat smoothies retain the fiber from the fruits and the vegetables you use. The fiber works to improve digestion and helps your body naturally rid itself of toxins. Fiber also helps you feel more satisfied, and maintains that feeling longer.



Best Ingredients to Use
for Low Fat Smoothies Recipes

Most smoothie recipes use ingredients from 3 primary categories: a liquid base, fruits and vegetables. Since most fruits and vegetables don't have any fat, the ingredient that will determine the total fat content of your low fat smoothie will be your liquid starter.

Water can be used as a starter for your low fat smoothie; it has the lowest amount of fat — zero grams. Then there's low-fat milk, yogurt or some type of dairy-free milk substitute such as almond milk, soy milk, rice milk and others. Some varieties of these products also have no fat; check the nutritional label on the package.

A diet with no fat in it isn't really healthy; your body needs some fat for critical metabolic functions, including the absorption of certain nutrients. You can give your smoothie a little bit by using a starter with just a little bit of fat in it, or consider the addition of some coconut oil to your smoothie. Coconut oil is one of the healthiest fats of all. It will give your smoothie a richer, creamier texture that will leave you full and satisfied longer. One tablespoon of coconut oil has 14 grams of fat in it.

Stevia — The Best
No-Calorie Sweetener

If you want to add some type of sweetener to your smoothie recipe, I recommend using stevia.

Stevia is an herbal extract that's many times as sweet as sugar, so you use much less. It comes in powder, liquid or tablet form and has no calories. Stevia also does not raise blood sugar levels and is safe for diabetics. It's probably the healthiest sweetener you can get.

If you need a good source for stevia products, iHerb.com has over 70 to choose from! And at iHerb, you'll get up to $10 off your first purchase!


Making Your Low Fat Smoothie Recipes
into Complete Meals

Many smoothie recipes are relatively low in protein, so they're not complete meals by themselves. The easy solution is to add a protein source to any healthy smoothie recipe.

The simplest way to do this is by adding a couple of raw organic eggs to your basic recipe. Raw eggs won't change the taste of your smoothie at all, and the argument that they're bad for you because of the cholesterol content is just not true. Eggs are one of the most beneficial foods you can eat, especially when consumed raw.

You can also increase the protein content of your healthy smoothie recipes by adding a protein powder.  Be sure to use a high quality product; most cheap protein powders are excessively heat-processed and aren't really good for you.

There are many other ways to transform your ordinary smoothie recipe into one with enhanced nutritional value. You can add superfood powders, healthy fats, herbs, spices and extra fiber. My complete guide to making healthy smoothies has lots of tips and tricks to make your smoothie better.
