Melon, green apple and cucumber weight loss milkshake

We’ll start by telling you something important as well as logical: we don’t recommend putting any sweetener in this drink. If you choose, for example, a lightly ripened melon, this alone will give the milkshake a fresh sweet taste.

Above all, this weight loss milkshake should be healthy, energetic and cleansing. This is why it’s important that you look for organic fruits. In fact, it’s vital that you use organic products because, you will need to use the fruit skin to make this milkshake, as is the case with the green apple.

Now let’s look at how each one of the ingredients can help us with weight loss.

Melon: refreshing and ideal for maintaining a healthy weight

  • Choose any type of melon you want or one that’s in season. The mere amount of natural sugars found in melon satisfies our sweet tooth, without affecting our health. This is provided that we consume it in moderation.
  • Melons, as well as watermelons, are rich in water, fiber and antioxidants. What’s more, they have a low calorie content. These are two aspects that make us feel full and decrease the need for us to snack between meals.
  • Nutritionists recommend that we consume 1 cup of melon (150 g) in the morning or in the late afternoon as a snack. Furthermore, we can combine it with other fruits, cereal, or natural yogurt.

Green apples are filling

In this milkshake, you will add an unpeeled green apple. The reason why this fruit is so appropriate for regulating our weight is that it’s low in sodium and in calories. Also, it’s rich in antioxidants, which speed up our metabolism.

  • Green apples only contain 80 calories in each portion.
  • Eating an apple in combination with melon juice and cucumber will allow soluble fibers to start their work in the intestinal tract.
  • Another interesting fact is that green apples allow us to stabilize blood sugar levels, which is important for diabetic people or those at risk of developing this disease.

Although this is shocking for many, cucumbers belong to the same family as watermelons. Therefore, it’s another great food to hydrate us, cleanse our body of toxins and reduce our cholesterol levels.

  • A useful fact about this weight loss milkshake is that it’s going to help us combat water retention and reduce the empty and heavy feeling we can sometimes get in our stomachs.
  • Furthermore, cucumbers are rich in enzymes and vitamins. They also have the ability to stimulate blood circulation. This is undoubtedly something amazing.
