Apples are the perfect snack on the HCG diet, but they aren't always convenient to eat. Turning them into a smoothie is an easy way to make them a lot more edible and easier to eat. This is another easy HCG diet smoothie recipe that is very low in calories and healthy. You can add HCG diet citrus fruits to it like lemon, orange or grapefruit if you want, but the main ingredients are apples and spinach. The recipe is filling because of the apples and spinach, both of which are high in fiber.
The green tea in this recipe helps to suppress your appetite with its caffeine content and some of the other effects of green tea. The catechins in green tea help prevent fat gain by inhibiting the movement of glucose into fat cells, and it also reduces insulin resistance which also helps to control your appetite. Green tea can also "unlock" your fat cells for metabolism in the same way that the HCG hormone does. As a result, it's an excellent thing to add into your diet on a regular basis, even when you aren't dieting, and it can help you control your appetite significantly.
This recipe is for one serving and it's easy to increase the servings if you want. It's really delicious and hopefully it will become one of your favorite smoothie recipes. This HCG diet green smoothie recipe only takes up 1 HCG diet fruit and vegetable serving, but it creates 2 servings of the smoothie, so it's very filling and a great low calorie meal. At 64 calories per serving you don't have to feel guilty about this one and you'll probably find that it's very filling.
