This is a delicious and nutrient-dense metabolism boosting smoothie recipe you need in your life.
Have you got a friend who eats anything and everything, but never gains weight? Often, this is a result of their genes, their metabolism being faster, or both.
If your metabolism isn’t fast, you will burn fewer calories while at rest. So, if you want to lose weight, one of the few good ways to do that is by speeding up your metabolism.
Now, if you are looking for metabolism boosting recipes, try our delicious metabolism fat burning smoothie today!
How To Speed Up Metabolism?
There are numerous different ways to speed your metabolism, however, here are some of the top ones:
- Drink Cold Water
- Drink Coffee
- Eat a High Protein Diet
- Drink Green Tea
- Eat Spicy Food
- Move More
And the list goes on. But remember, a bad diet, and lack of movement will only slow down your metabolism. So try to move as much as you can, and make healthy food choices!
Do Smoothies Boost Your Metabolism?
Yes, smoothies can help boost your metabolism. They contain nutritious ingredients like fruits, vegetables, and protein, which can increase your metabolism’s speed.
Make sure that you always add a form of protein to your smoothies, whether it’s a protein powder, nut butters, or yogurt, protein can only enhance the metabolism-boosting properties.
Protein shakes are even better for boosting your metabolism because they contain much more protein than a green smoothie for example.
What Fruits Speed Up Your Metabolism?
There are fruits that can help boost your metabolism.
If you don’t like adding protein powder to your smoothies or want to try to boost your metabolism using fruit smoothies, then here’s a list of the best fruits to boost your metabolism.
According to MD. Joseph Galati, these are the best fruits to boost metabolism:
- Citrus Fruit

Adding yogurt to your smoothies also adds a healthy dose of protein and creaminess to your smoothies!
Spinach is high in iron and protein. Both of these nutrients can help boost your metabolism.
Spinach is also a low calorie leafy green, making it an excellent addition to your weight loss smoothie.
Thanks to the abundance of nutrients and enzymes, pineapple can be a great addition to your smoothies for weight loss and metabolism.
