Best Smoothie IngredientsPosted on: May 13th 2012

If you’re on a fat loss diet plan but tend to keep a busy schedule and this often has you stopping off for fast food, you must find a way to overcome this.

Lack of time to prepare healthy meals is one of the biggest hindrances that so many people face on their quest to get a leaner body, so it’s a must that you figure out a solution.

Preparing a smoothie is a fast and easy way to get your needed nutrients in and when you choose the right ingredients, can definitely encourage fat loss results.

Let’s look at a few of the top ingredients to add into your smoothie.

Protein Powder

First up, you need a good source of protein. Protein powder is very quick and convenient and comes in so many different flavors that you’ll be hard pressed to not find one you enjoy.

Choose a protein powder that contains as few carbs and fats for best results.

Frozen Berries Or Bananas

Next, another great addition to any smoothie is some frozen berries or a frozen banana. These will help make the shake that much frothier so it’s more like a milkshake.

While fresh does taste great as well, if you can use a combination of fresh and frozen, you’ll likely find the shake tastes better.

Natural Nut Butter

For added creaminess in your shake, opt for peanut or almond butter. It’s important to get some healthy fats in to calm your hunger and these will work perfectly.

Just keep it limited to one tablespoon per shake.

Cottage Cheese

Finally, if you’re someone who would prefer not to use protein powder, than cottage cheese is a good alternative. It’s still high in protein and will pack in some calcium as well.

Blend it with some milk and you’ll still have a shake-like beverage.

So there you have some of the top shake ingredients to use when you prepare yours. Make sure you aren’t missing out on these.
