This recipe is designed to burn fat, but it is also an antioxidant powerhouse. Green tea increases metabolism and broccoli and cauliflower have enzymes that reportedly help the body more efficiently burn fat.
Pineapple is added for a flavor boost and to provide vitamin C and antioxidants. Note that for fat burning properties caffeinated green tea should be used. If you just want the antioxidant benefits of green tea then using decaf is fine.
Tip: Try other fruits to vary the taste. Apple, Lime, or banana, are all good options.
Note, this recipe was outsourced. 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 from us on that!
