Caffeine and Green Tea are both metabolism boosters. I have seen some reports that caffeinated green tea is akin to a negative calorie drink because it is calorie free yet will make you burn other calories faster. Thus, the idea behind fat burning smoothies is to include it in the ingredients and then also include healthy additions that won’t go to the waistline. Ideally that would be more vegetable based to avoid any sort of sugars as seen in our Fat Burning Green Tea and Vegetable Smoothie Recipe, but I had a request for a fruit based version, so here it is. Leave the carrots out if you want all fruit. This recipe also includes a good dose of Vitamin C and antioxidants.
This fat burning nutriblast recipe uses green tea and fruit for a metabolism boost. Brew the green tea first. Using frozen fruit, you can still use the tea warm if need be, but I prefer to chill it first for a truly ice cold and frosty smoothie.
