Fat Burning Fruit NutriBlast Recipe

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 there have been requests 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.

Note: This recipe was outsourced. Based on  a user comment (which you can see from Mike below), please do your own research on the benefits or lack thereof of Green Tea and whether you wish to use higher glycemic index fruit or not (I suggest substituting berries for a lower index or go to all veggies if you want to lower the glycemic index). There is debate on all of these things, with varying views, especially when it comes to fruit in the diet. I personally don’t think using Green Tea will  hurt you, and it adds a nice taste to the smoothie, but it may or may not meet up to the claims. No promises on that!

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.

  1. My son bought me a nutribullet for my birthday. I love it, they are fun to make and i know that it is goods for your health

  2. What dietary or nutritional proof do you have to claim this smoothie burns fat? How did you work out the ingredients? Did anyone with ANY dietary or nutritional expertise check this out? Seriously, how could this possibly burn calories when you’ve got two very high sugar fruits in there (plus orange as well)?

    I don’t know how sites like this (and others) can make claims like they do about these smoothies – the green tea would have NO EFFECT in this because of the high sugar content in the pineapple, mango and orange – in fact this smoothie is LADEN with fructose which makes you GAIN weight. Yes there are some other vitamins and minerals in these fruits but anyone that knows anything about health and losing weight would know fructose is NOT something a dietician or nutritionist would recommend you consume to lose weight. Read this article THEN see if you think it’s still going to help you lose weight – both mangoes and pineapples are right near the top of the list!!! https://www.livestrong.com/article/542442-what-fruits-are-high-in-fructose/

    I just see recipe after recipe on this site (and others) which make all sort of claims for weight loss, detox, skin cleansing (which in itself is an absolute con!!!), and god knows what else with, as far as I can see, NO EXPERT EVIDENCE TO BACK THESE CLAIMS UP. Do not just take these recipes and their claims at face value – if you have the time then Google the benefits of each fruit and vegetable and see if they back up the claims the creator of the smoothie has claimed. We live in an age where people are so gullible it’s a tragedy – just because someone says it’s it helps burn fat or detox you liver or cleanse your skin it doesn’t mean that it does.

    PS: The green tea bags or boxes you buy from most supermarkets has most or all the antioxidants processed out of it so you need to buy raw green or white tea leaves from a good Asian supermarket. It tastes better and all of the good stuff is still there. And btw, white tea is even better than green tea – much higher in anti-oxidants and catechins (look it up) and is claimed (but with pretty reputable studies behind it) to be associated with cancer prevention. It also does not taste as strong as white tea so if you can’t handle green then white could be the answer for you.

    • Hi Mike, this recipe was formulated by a Nutritionist in Arizona who was outsourced to write a number of recipes for the site. I have seen varying sources that debate the benefits or lack of benefits of green tea. I do not personally know the source of the author’s claims. I do not view Livestrong as a particularity great resource, but not terrible either. I certainly urge people to of course do their own research when formulating recipes, especially since many recipes on this site are outsourced to a Nutritionist an some are user submitted. Your points on the hypoglycemic index of various fruits is well taken as discussed elsewhere on this site, although honestly, even though I have personally switched to a largely no sugar no grain diet, I do not fear fruit, including high glycemic index fruit, in moderate amounts. Most of the Nutritionists I work with agree that fruit, regardless of glyciemic index has a lot of nutritional value including in those trying to lose weight. Nothing here suggests that people dieting should consume huge amounts of fructose at every meal. Regardless, I know of others who are pretty militant about avoiding it, and certainly anyone following a Keto type of diet would seek to do so. That decision is up to the individual and the type of diet they seek to follow. Again, as you yourself suggest, they should do their own research. I added a note to the recipe to reflect this.

      • Thanks for the reply Carleen – I appreciate you could have chosen not to publish my comments given they were somewhat, erm, “strident” shall we say! (Note to self: don’t write blog replies in anger.)

        I am glad to hear the smoothie was actually created by a supposed expert though I am still very surprised at the amount of fructose in it and I for one would not consider it as a weight loss smoothie – but that’s just my opinion based on what I believe to be facts and I am not qualified in any way in nutrition.

        I also appreciate you adding the comments – that shows real honestly and maturity from both yourself and the site. It is great that users can post challenging comments and have them taken seriously – many sites would have just deleted my post.

        All your other points are of course valid – and I agree Livestrong is not necessarily a true authority but the link to the list of fructose levels in fruit was just an illustration to show how much fructose these fruits have. This information can easily be found on other, more official, sites as well or by a simple Google search.

        Anyway, having said all that this is still my favourite site for Nutribullet recipes and there are still loads of other smoothies here I love and have no issue with any claims the creators might make for them 🙂
