Strawberry, Raspberry and Chilli Fat-Burning Smoothie Recipe

  • Handful of strawberries: Strawberries are rich in polyphenols, which help to improve blood sugar control and reduce fat storage.
  • ½ red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped: Chilli contains capsaicin, which burns fat by increasing your body’s energy expenditure levels.
  • Handful of frozen raspberries: Raspberries provide fibre, which helps keep you full and avoid the temptation to snack.
  • 100ml natural yogurt: Natural yogurt is high in protein, which helps maintain muscle mass when eating for fat loss.
  • 400ml cold green tea: Green tea contains ECGC, an antioxidant that helps you get lean by breaking down fat.
  • Handful of kale: Kale is a source of calcium, a mineral that plays a key role in regulating body fat levels.

  • Juice of 1 orange: Oranges are rich in vitamin C, and studies have shown people with high levels burn fat more efficiently.
  • ½ a chilli: Chilli contains capsaicin, which – as well as its metabolism boosting properties – helps to suppress appetite.
  • 1 scoop of whey protein isolate: Whey protein isolate helps build muscle. Because muscle is active tissue, the more you have, the more fat you burn.
  • 400ml green tea, cold: Green tea contains the antioxidant ECGC, which causes an increase in fat oxidisation.
  • Handful of kale: Kale is a source of calcium, a mineral that plays a key role in regulating body fat levels.
