Women and  some men  are haunted by the infamous bloated belly. It can be so discouraging to be on track to your weight loss goal but still have that annoying belly fat. Besides exercising your abdomen with crunches and sit ups, here are juices and smoothies that help get rid belly fat. Drinking smoothies and belly fighting juices is one of the easiest ways to get rid of belly fat. You don't have to break a sweat or take any harmful diet pills. Here are a variety of smoothies and juices that I enjoy making for myself. As a full time mother, time is limited so it is very easy for me to grab a smoothie from the refrigerator that I made the night before. If you have children then you know they can be quite a handful. You can make many of these recipes prior to when you need them , put them in the freezer, and take them out when you need them so you won't have to try to work the blender and handle your child or crazy work schedule at the same time. Good luck! 



1.  Simple Lemon and Warm Water





This is something I already do when I wake up every morning. I take a half of lemon and 8oz of warm water. Stir it up and Waa La! Lemons are high in fiber and vitamin C. This simple drink can make a big difference in your digestive system. Not only that it reduces hunger cravings. I don't know about you but I have a horrible sweet tooth. So anything that reduces cravings is a must have!


  • 1/2 Lemon 
  • 8oz warm water


2. Blueberry Flaxseed Smoothie





Singer's Fergie and Nicole Scherzinger both drink this smoothie to help keep their bodies looking fabulous. If you love blueberries, this one is for you! Blueberries are packed with vitamin C and Fiber. Flaxseeds have fiber, antioxidants and is rich in Omega 3- fatty acids. And you know what that means? Less Bloating! HAAAAalleluiah!

  • 6 ice cubes
  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
  • 2 tsp organic agave nectar
  • 1 tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 1 cup cold water 
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 banana 
  • 1/2 tbsp flaxseed oil 
Place all the ingredients in order as listed above. Blend on low for 10 seconds or until smooth and enjoy!

3. Healthy Green Juice





Hollywood loves their green juice! Seriously, google green juice and you will find a lot of celebrities have their green juice in hand. If this is the secret to weight loss and being slim and trim I am so ready to drink up! Not to mention the ingredients help flatten your tummy. Anything that will help get rid of bloating is my friend. The spinach is a big plus too. I don't mind veggies but I never eat enough. So putting it in a delicious juice or smoothie is like killing two birds with one stone. Belly fat blasting and nutritious.

  • 1/2 bunch spinach
  • 1 handful watercress
  • 1/2 lemon peeled
  • 1 celery stalk
  • 2 apples
  • 1 in slice of ginger
Place all the ingredients in a juicer and serve. Don't have a juicer? Make a smoothie instead! In order to make a smoothie you will need your blender. Chop your apples and remove the core. Chop the celery stalk. Peel and chop ginger. Zest and juice the lemon. Combine all the ingredients and blend on high until smooth. Add water or ice to thin out the smoothie.


4. Oatmeal Smoothie 





 This is awesome for breakfast! Especially if you are always on the go. A lot of people forget that eating breakfast is essential when trying to get those pounds off. It doesn't have to be something big or complicated. Just eat something! This smoothie recipe contains ingredients that will fill you up but it is still low in calories. Hope you like!

  • 1 cup ice
  • 1/4 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1/4 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 plain low fat yogurt (Greek recommended)
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 cup coconut water
Place ice and frozen raspberries in the bottom of the blender. Place all the other ingredients on top. Blend and enjoy. :-)
