Metabolism-Boosting Smoothie Recipe

Jump-Start Your Morning With This Metabolism-Boosting Smoothie

Eating breakfast is one way to get your metabolism fires burning strong, but what you eat can boost your metabolism even more. With a quick whir of the blender, here's a smoothie recipe loaded with metabolism-boosting ingredients.

In this recipe, you'll find calcium-rich Greek yoghurt, almonds, and broccoli, a nutrient that has been shown to help the body break down fat. The almonds, cannellini beans, and yogurt also add a great deal of protein, and what's more, the zinc in the yoghurt may increase the production of the hormone leptin, which is shown to improve metabolism and suppress appetite. The high-fibre strawberries keep you feeling full longer and are also packed with vitamin C. Pour in some green tea for caffeine, a natural metabolism booster, and top it all off with cinnamon, a warming spice that can temporarily boost metabolism. In the end, you've got a breakfast under 345 calories that offers over 30 grams of protein and 8.1 grams of fibre.
