Why You Should Include Avocados In Your Weight Loss Diet

A lot of people avoid avocados when they are trying to lose weight because they are high in calories!

Whilst calories are an important factor when it comes to losing weight, the quality of food is just as important.

Avocados are a great addition to your weight loss diet, because they are very filling, and contain numerous nutrients.

A large avocado contains roughly 30g of fat. Fat is very filling, which is crucial when you are dieting.

If you feel full, you are less likely to overeat.

How My Avocado Smoothie Recipe Helps With Weight Loss:

When it comes to creating weight loss smoothies, one of the main things is the amount of calories per serving and of course quality of ingredients.

Next, the ingredient combination. You want a tasty smoothie, but also, a smoothie that contains nutritious ingredients that will aid weight loss.

Here are the ingredients I used in this avocado smoothie for belly fat loss:

  • Avocado – the healthy fat in the avocados is wonderful for satiating you and keeping you feeling full for hours.
  • Chia Seeds – chia seeds are high in fiber and protein, both of these nutrients are key to promoting fullness and satiety.
  • Blueberries – blueberries have been linked to helping fat loss, especially in the belly area. But weight loss is just one of the few benefits they offer.
  • Dates – thanks to the high amount of fiber present in dates, they can promote the feeling of fullness, and thanks to their sweetness, help curb sugar cravings too.
  • Unsweetened Almond Milk – almond milk is a low-calorie liquid to add to your smoothies. Which is particularly useful in weight loss smoothies.

If you love avocado smoothies, you should also try my coconut water avocado smoothie, which is also good for weight loss, and my mango avocado smoothie!

Possible Ingredient Substitutions

In case you dislike some of the ingredients, or do not have them at hand, you can make the following substitutions:

  • You don’t have to use blueberries, you can use any other berry of choice.
  • Instead of almond milk, you can use dairy-free milk of choice, such as unsweetened coconut or oat milk.
  • Instead of dates, you can use any other dried fruit you like, or alternatively, substitute the dates completely, and add a handful of fruit of choice.

Recipe Add-Ins:

a variation of the original recipe

Want to boost the nutritional power of this smoothie?

Add the following ingredients:

  1. Leafy Green Boost: Adding a handful of kale or spinach to your smoothie won’t add many extra calories, but will add many more nutrients to your drink!
  2. Chocolate Flavored: Chocolate and avocado work so well together. With only 12 extra calories, you can make this smoothie chocolate-flavored by adding a tablespoon of cocoa powder.
  3. Nutty Power: Adding a tablespoon of nut butter will increase the calories per serving, but the nuts will help promote satiety even more and also provide plant-based protein.
