A diet smoothie can help weight loss in many ways: it can successfully replace a meal (breakfast or dinner would be best), it can consist of elements that help fat burning, inducing a feeling of fullness, improve digestion and add nutrients, minerals and vitamins necessary for maintaining a healthy body and good levels of energy.

Smoothie Recipes for Weight Loss

A smoothie for weight loss should have fewer calories. Considering this, green smoothies would be the best choice but they are not very appealing when it comes to taste and flavor.
