The Cuban Cardio Best Slimming Ingredients for Your Drinks

If you are trying to drop a few pounds, you might want to know some great slimming ingredients you can add to your drink. I think sipping on cool and sweet drinks on your days is an easy way to lose weight. We know that most hot winter drinks are high in calories, however, cold summer drinks can also contain plenty of empty calories. Cocktails, smoothies and juices are usually packed with sugar and they can cause weight gain, replace all those sugary ingredients for slimming ingredients for your drinks. Your lean waistline will thank you forever!

Unsweetened almond milk

If you want to lose weight, start using unsweetened almond milk instead of dairy milk. Unsweetened almond milk contains 30 calories per cup and it contains no soy, sugar, lactose, carbs, gluten, or MSG. I love to add unsweetened almond milk to my creamy summer drinks.

Stevia

No matter whether you are drinking tea, coffee, lemonade, smoothies, or cocktails, stevia is a great slimming ingredient for any drink. Stevia comes from an herb and is 200 to 300 times sweeter than sugar. When buying stevia, make sure you choose the liquid stevia or the 100% pure stevia white powder.

Apple cider vinegar

A cup of ice water is one of the best drinks, which you can make more delicious. Try adding some stevia, ginger, lemon, and a dash of apple cider vinegar. This tasty drink will definitely help you trim your body fat. The thing is that apple cider vinegar helps reduce your blood sugar levels and prevent fat storage in your body.

Lemon

One lemon contains less than 1 gram of sugar, which makes them a perfect slimming ingredient for your drinks. You can use a few slices of lemon to sweeten up your water and add a tart taste that will curb your sweet tooth. Moreover, you can add lemons to your veggie juices, smoothies, green or black tea. If you can’t imagine your drinks without lemonade, consider making sugar-free lemonade with lemons and stevia.

Nonfat plain kefir

I know, it sounds tasteless, but nonfat plain kefir is actually a wonderful high-protein ingredient for the smoothies. Since nonfat plain kefir is not calorie-free, consider using no more than 1 cup per recipe. If you don’t like the taste of plain kefir, sweeten it up with your favorite berries or stevia. Nonfat plain kefir contains more slimming probiotics than plain yogurt. Plus, it has a slightly tart taste that can make any smoothie even more delicious!

Clean protein powder

Add a clean protein powder to your smoothie or nondairy milk, but make sure it’s free of artificial sweeteners, sugars and additives. I recommend you to have your drinks with a clean protein powder after your workout in order to build more lean muscle in your body and drop weight faster.

Lime

Lime is another fantastic slimming ingredient that you can add to any drink. Just like lemon, lime is virtually sugar- and calorie-free. It’s rich in vitamin C that helps boost your immune system. Lime is also good for cleansing and detoxifying the body and it’s incredibly helpful for shedding pounds.

Watermelon

Watermelon is naturally low in calories (1 cup has only 45 calories) so it’s a wonderful ingredient for your  drink. You can use watermelon in your smoothies, juices, and you can even add it to your ice water to make a refreshing drink. Watermelon is not only good for your waistline, but for your overall health as well. It helps to reduce the risk of cancer, stroke and heart disease.

Kiwi

Even though kiwi won’t directly burn fat, it’s still a perfect ingredient to add to your drink to lose weight. Kiwi is low in calories and high in fiber, antioxidants and Vitamin C. You can add kiwi to your smoothies, juices and water. You can also use it in fruit salads or eat it raw. Kiwi helps to reduce stress hormone levels, control your blood cholesterol, and can even combat wrinkles.

Grapefruit

Rich in vitamins, antioxidants, fibre and lycopene, grapefruit detoxifies the body and aids in weight loss. Since grapefruit is high in water-soluble fiber, it helps you feel full longer and avoid overeating. Add a few slices to your water or drink grapefruit juice. Freshly squeezed grapefruit juice is a healthy and refreshing summer drink, and it’s oh-so delicious!
