[RECIPE] Banana Smoothie Sheds Stomach Inches

I just found this cool smoothie recipe where they claim to have captured the secret ingredient mix to shedding tummy fat.

They explain briefly how these work in your body as a meal-replacement breakfast smoothie, and of course provide their recipe. It’ll not only help you towards your weight goals, but give you some additional ideas for ingredients in your own smoothie recipes.

(We also debunk the myths which claim “bananas are bad for you”, and evaluate flaxseed as a “superfood”. But you can skip these if you prefer and go on to the recipe. Just click “Next Page”)

As FitFoodHouse.com says…

If you want to be slim and healthy this summer, then you definitely have to try this delicious and very refreshing banana drink!

Luckily, bananas are a type of fruit that is allowed to be consumed while on a diet because this super-fruit contains a high level of potassium that helps to eliminate toxins from one’s body.

Besides this, when bananas are combined with flax or spinach, they boost the work of the metabolism and thus help the process of weight loss.

Like to discover the secret banana smoothie drink for a flatter tummy? Here’s how…

Keep in mind though that you need to drink this regularly to see the effect in just a week or so.

Check out the recipe (a couple of pages ahead) and let me know what you think…but first, see a question we are often asked – on the Next Page…

      Hi Vicki,
      Thanks for your comment – you are correct!
      I’ve edited the section below the recipe to more clearly direct readers over to the original article for directions.

      however, here they for your own convenience. Its pretty straight forward…
      Preparation: Mix all the ingredients in a blender. They should be mixed well so that you obtain a drink with a thinner texture.

      Enjoy!

    OMG! Clicking for this information just gives you a plethora of ads. If you don’t get irritated with the amount of ads, you might actually get to the information you want.

    Hi @[514524298:2048:Dan Pena], yes we do present Ads to our visitors – we aim to have most of these relevant and interesting, but understand this isn’t always the case. Ads can be a nuisance. But they do help cover our costs… Would you be interested in an Ad-free low-cost subscription option? We’re not offering this yet, but would be happy to if our readers preferred this. Let me know.

    I’m not sure. Depends on how useful the information is. Never got to read the information I was interested in. Sidetracked by many ads that did not interest me as much as the lead info. Frustrating is and understatement.

    Hi Sofie Munoz Browning, sure… if you are not a huge fan of coconut, you can use olive oil or grapeseed oil instead. I’ve also heard of someone using a (cheap) pancake syrup instead of oil, but that’s a bigger change in flavor and nutrition. Hope that helps? All the Best, Ruth

    Hi Robin Denise Gowers, thanks for your comment – although “probably a lie” is rather strong… Bananas are filling – which is why many smoothie recipes call for only half a banana per serving.

    I’d be interested to know why you believe bananas are one of the worst fruits to use for weight loss?

    I had a similar comment from someone else recently, but she provided no evidence. I’ve done some research on comparing foods claimed to be good and bad for weight loss, but although there are some unsubstantiated claims, I have not (yet) found any evidence justifying them.

    You could help me out here…
    Thanks, Ruth

    Good morning, fruit in itself is good for you. However fruit is very high in sugar although it’s healthy sugar, fruit in its own skins, bananas, apples, etc are extremely high in sugar, sugar in any form healthy or otherwise slows down the fat burning process, belly fat for most is the location of the fat. There are three kinds of Fat
    We all have three kinds of fat: fat in our bloodstream (called triglycerides), subcutaneous fat (which lies just beneath the skin’s surface), and omentum fat. The omentum is a fatty layer of tissue located inside the belly, where it hangs underneath the muscles in your stomach (which is why some men with beer guts have hard-as-a-keg bellies — their fat is under the muscle). Doctors refer to it as visceral fat or intra-abdominal adiposity (IAA).

    Because this omentum fat is so close to your organs, it’s their best energy source.

    What Belly Fat Does
    In addition, the fat released from the omentum rapidly and constantly travels to your liver, unlike the fat on your thighs, which patiently waits. The processed material is then shipped to the arteries, where it is linked to health risks like high LDL (lousy) cholesterol. Also, the more omentum fat you have, the less adiponectin you produce. Adiponectin is a stress- and inflammation-reducing chemical related to the hunger-controlling hormone leptin.

    So yes bananas are use in a lot of smoothes for the purpose of the sugar, so yes it’s a filler but again although it’s a healthy sugar, sugar in any form slows the fat burning process, so you would want to be very watchful with both the bananas and the smoothes cause they will build you up verses causing you to lose weight… I hope that helps… have a wonderful day!

    Almost every one of these type of smoothies have bananas in them! I agree with you Robin Denise Gowers. However i hate bananas period!!! I would love to do a detox without them in it!

  40. Deirdre Holke said:

    if you are weight training bananas and apples with peanut butter is the best thing to eat ! if your just eating tons of bananas and not exercising regularly yeah your gonna get fat. avacados are very fattening however they are a healthy fat and doesn’t mean you can sit there eating 5 avacados in one sitting and be like oh I ate healthy. there is a science to training ! that’s if your training as I am ! been trained by 4 different people bananas are healthy for you !

    Hi Rondi Buris, sorry about that – we hoped you’d appreciate the occasional “several pages” of useful & interesting content. We usually include a recipe, and always place it at the end of the article, so if you just want the recipe, its easy to click the large “Next Page” link. Its rarely more than once or twice… Best regards, Ruth B

    Thank you for your reply..I think a lot of people get a little frustrated these days as you either have mult pages of advertisement or you have to give your information to read great articles and recipes.

    Hi Rondi Buris. consider how many people happily pay for traditional magazines with hundreds of Ads in them and never think anything of it? Here, the info is all free of charge, and all you have to do is a few clicks on an obvious button. I’m listening, but I’m struggling to see the great difficulty. Thanks again! Ruth B

    However, for convenience, I have added prep. instructions to the post on DrinkMeHealthy.com

    If your SHAKE is ONLY giving you protein…I am SO sorry!! And what kind of protein is it? Quality? Absorption?
    You have GOT to think about your shake!
    *Thrive Lifestyle Shake Mix is a Protein Blend, but predominantly Pea Protein. Pea has the greatest absorption rate out of all the Proteins. Many people are trained to ONLY look at the Protein amount on the labels. More Protein doesn’t mean anything if your body is not absorbing it.
    *Also the Ultra Micronized process is easy to mix and easy to digest! It’s yummy!!
    THRIVE is also your macro/micro nutrients,minerals BCAA’s, anti-oxidants, enzymes and MORE!!
    *Le-Vel uses the HIGHEST grade of Nutraceutical Raws in each product.

    It is a lie that bananas are the most fattening fruit! I drink banana smoothies daily with Silk milk. I have never felt better, and not to mention the amount of potassium you get from it. Stay away from the dairy milk and use soy. Oh yea, I am 57 years old and don’t look my age. I contributed it to the banana smoothies.

    Hi Wendy Andersen Adams, You do understand that on average, we need around 2000 calories per day? So how does 598 calories lead immediately to your conclusion?
    Yes, for weight loss, daily calories in must be less than calories burned… But you need to look a bit beyond the calorie count in a single meal to be able to make a valid judgement about how “healthy” it is. Did you read the whole article?

  62. Penney Talley said:

    Bananas are not part of our ffn menu guide. We are distributors and honor our company suggestions for weight loss. I do not feel they are the top choice of fruit for diabetics, either. If you want the banana flavor use sf flavoring . If you want creamy I suggest avocado.

    Isn’t that an awful lot of sugar? All that fruit. If you want to lose fat you have to do lean protein. Limit the sugars. Natural sugars are better but they’re still sugars

  67. Amber Hanneken said:

    That 90g should be split up throughout the day. Not almost half in one meal. That’s not healthy and opening oneself up to getting more that the “recommended” 90g. Same goes for calories. One doesn’t eat the majority of their calories for one meal and try to split the remaining for the other 2 meals and snacks.

    Hi Donna Chin-sang, I’m puzzled by your warning…what do you consider is the problem with raising blood sugar levels?

    All foods raise your blood sugar and in healthy, non-diabetic people, this is not a reason for concern at all. In fact, if your overall diet is low in fat, the sugar in fruit isn’t a concern for you either.

    Foods should not be avoided by healthy people because an expert made a list of foods based on a study that raise blood sugar more than other foods.

    Sometimes you want to raise your blood sugar quickly, like after working out.

    Hi Frednette Claytor, not all smoothies are for everyone… One of the beauties of smoothies is that with a little knowledge, you can easily tailor the recipes to your dietary priorities & flavor preferences.

    I found out that red bananas are a really healthy alternative to the yellow ones for they can produce a lot of mucus in the body. In addition, the red bananas are ten times richer in potassium and other essential minerals than the yellow ones. Try dem out and just do a personal progressive report and tell I whatcha tink. Selah

    Banana is a natural sugar, it won’t harm you, If you are concerned and have diabetes. You can also substitute with another fruit of choice. It’s 41.5 grams of sugar but good sugar.

    Hi Martha de Nunez, as Lisa Thomas recently pointed out – “Banana is a natural sugar, it won’t harm you, If you are concerned and have diabetes. You can also substitute with another fruit of choice. It’s 41.5 grams of sugar but good sugar.”

    Also, just take half a serving if you won’t use up the energy provided by a given recipe. You can still enjoy the smoothie – maybe twice!

    Hi Allison Mckinney, such a cynical view! How sad… At DrinkMeHealthy we try to provide quality content of interest to our regulars and new visitors alike. We gereally aim to include relevant and educational information along with healthy recipes. If that’s a gimmick, we’re proud to do it!

    Hi Judie Petruzzi, there’s quite a lengthy explanation in the article of how the ingredients in this recipe can contribute to weight loss, but as others have noted, this smoothie is not for everyone, and in any case must be used in the context of an overall meal plan – like any other healthy smoothie.

    The beauty of healthy smoothies is that you can adapt the recipe, and/or drink it in smaller servings to suit your personal needs and preferences.

    We aim to help our readers make informed choices appropriate to themselves…

    Hi Christine McGillivray, yes, it’s designed as a meal-replacement breakfast smoothie, so it is quite high in energy-giving sugar. If it is too much in 1 serving for you, we suggest either just taking half a serving at a time and leave the rest until later…or… choose a recipe better suited to your needs & preferences. Here’s a link to low-sugar recipes you may prefer: http://www.drinkmehealthy.com/?s=sugar&submit=Search

  92. Ann Gardner said:

    My first meal of the day rarely comes close to 598 calories, and I won’t go near 41.5 grams of sugar at a sitting….POISON I would have to say for a diabetic, unless they are harness to a buggy and forced around a race track for 4 hours to work all that off!!!!

  93. Debbie Rideout said:

    Sam Morrison — I love chocolate shakes, Please give me a recipe that is less in sugar. My sugar got a bit high. I need some information. thanks

  94. Gita Kaiser said:

    I read lot of articles and nutrition documentaries that actually the low fat or fat free stuffs aren’t good for u. Bc it loaded wit lots of sugar which by mean, ur liver will process it into fat. Bc sugar makes u fat not d fat it self..

    It sounds like, to me, that you are putting out there that all people have to do is drink these smoothies and the pounds will disappear. I have struggled with weight all my life and that is very deceiving.

  96. Drink Me Healthy Smoothies & Juicing said:

    Hi Janice McIntyre Hipwell, thanks for your feedback. I trust that if you read a range of our posts, you’ll find that is not the message we are presenting.

    We repeatedly advise that healthy smoothies can be an excellent contributor to better health, including weight loss – if that is your objective – but in the context of a balanced meal plan, and preferably including appropriate exercise.

    As you point out, there is no magic potion. But in our own experience, and according to the testimony of many others, healthy smoothies are a significant and fun contributor to to better dietary awareness, choices and a healthier lifestyle.

  97. Drink Me Healthy Smoothies & Juicing said:

    Hi Candy Simmons-Johnson, thanks for your question! No question is stupid! Yes, we would peel the banana and the orange. We often do add some orange zest, and some scrapings from the inside of the banana skin though, just to get as much nutrition and flavor from the fruit as possible.

  98. Judy Hogan said:

    Calories are high, have been told to keep mine at 1200 a day and the smoothie is nearly 600, wouldn’t be able to eat much else for the day

  99. Drink Me Healthy Smoothies & Juicing said:

    Hi Judy Hogan, if you’d enjoy the flavor, take half the quantitry. There’s no rule that says you must follow the instructions religiously… In fact, one of the beauties of smoothies is their adaptability to you personal preferences…

    If your on medication for blood pressure its advisable not to eat them because of the potassium in them if medication is stamped avoid taking potassium with this medication that applys to bananas .

  101. Pam N Foss said:

    Lesley Gibson I am on blood pressure medication that says do not take potassium, but my doctor said a small banana a day wouldn’t hurt. My regular blood tests will show if there is any change.

    Hi Angiano-bades, we probably do, but it would depend on which symptoms are affecting you. Please note that we’re not qualified to advise on individual medical conditions. You must seek the advice of your medical practitioner.

    Having said that, I found this article which may help you prepare for a discussion with your doctor on the best dietary choices for your situation: http://www.myastheniagravis.org/life-with-mg/nutrition/

    I believe if we just eat right we can still maintain a more healthy diet however this is better than drinking milkshakes but i have taken yogurt and put it in soy milk which was non fat milk.
