You’ve heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but did you also know it’s one of the best times to kickstart rapid fat loss in your body?
Since most people start their day with coffee, tea, or a smoothie, wouldn’t it be great to drink a delicious, specialized concoction that can boost your fat-burning metabolism at the same time?
Well, good news for you, you have 5 tasty options to choose from…
Just try one (or more) of these 5 fat-burning breakfast drinks proven to burn stubborn belly fat:
1. Fat-Blasting Breakfast Tea
The following 5 powerhouse ingredients come together to create a natural fat burning tea.
First off, Apple cider vinegar contains acetic acid. This is shown to promote fat loss, reduce appetite, and improve your blood sugar and insulin response (which controls fat storage). Green tea also directly increases your metabolic rate, while cinnamon helps to reduce your nagging food cravings. Boom!
- 1 ½ cups green tea
- 1 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
- 1 tbsp Honey
- 1 tbsp Cinnamon
- ½ lemon juiced
2. Super Detox Water Infusion
Each ingredient in this infused detox water contributes to its overall fat-burning effect. The green tea helps you burn fat, while the mint aids digestion (reducing uncomfortable belly bloat), calms the stomach, and acts as a natural sweetener.
The health benefits of lime also include aiding in weight loss and improved digestion.
And to top it off, all of the water in this super-hydrating beverage will naturally increase your cellular metabolism (directly burning stubborn belly fat).
- 1 fresh-sliced lime
- Small handful of mint
- 1 green tea bag
- 3 cups of filtered water (room temperature or warm)
Allow infusing for a minimum of 30 minutes.
3. Lean Green Matcha Smoothie
Most people want to kick-start their day with a bit of caffeine, but don’t want that yucky, jittery feeling.
This Lean Green Matcha Smoothie will give you that all-natural ‘pick-me-up’ you desire without the dreaded shakes.
Matcha is Japanese green tea powder made from finely powdered dried tea leaves.
It does contain more caffeine than regular green tea, but it will just make you feel more energized and focused.
With added spinach for vitamins K, A, C, and iron, along with high fiber from the chia seeds, plus protein powder, this perfect smoothie contains all the ingredients for a balanced, fat-burning meal.
The soluble fiber in the chia seeds also absorbs large amounts of water and expands in your stomach. This will increase your feeling of fullness without feeling bloated.
- 1 and ½ cup Unsweetened almond milk
- 1/2 avocado
- 1/2 Frozen banana
- 2 handfuls of spinach
- 2 tbsp ground chia seeds
- 1 Scoop Protein Powder
- 1 tsp Matcha Powder
- Juice from 1/2 lemon
4. Grapefruit-ACV Flat Belly Beverage
As you saw in our first drink recipe, apple cider vinegar has many great benefits. However, when you combine it with fat-burning grapefruit, you obtain a powerhouse drink of super nutrients.
Grapefruit contains a little-known compound called nootkatone, which significantly reduces hunger, stimulates your metabolism and ultimately, ramps up weight loss.
It also contains a hefty dose of a powerful antioxidant, naringenin, which has been shown to directly improve your sensitivity to insulin—the body’s “fat storage” hormone.
Long story short, MORE naringenin = LESS belly fat!
- 1 part apple cider vinegar
- 4 parts grapefruit juice (100% juice, no added sugar)
- Organic stevia to taste
5. Metabo-Boosting Keto Coffee Concoction
For those who cannot go without their morning coffee, this supercharged keto coffee provides sustained energy and focus, fights cravings, and boosts your metabolism first thing in the morning.
Full of good fats and with zero carbs, this coffee keeps you full for hours after drinking it.
When making this delicious brew you can choose your main ingredient. Whether that is MCT oil, MCT oil powder, or coconut oil. MCT oil is known to give an extra mental boost as it is a form of fat that is converted into energy for the brain.
Just make sure your MCT oil contains caprylic acid. This is the highest quality oil.
The other ingredients in this recipe are organic fair trade coffee, raw cacao powder, and grass-fed ghee (a “clarified”, dairy-free butter).
This drink not only increases the good fats in your diet but will keep you full by drinking a creamier version of your daily dose of caffeine.
- 2 cups of black coffee (organic, fair trade)
- 1 tablespoon of MCT oil, MCT oil powder, or coconut oil
- 1/2 tablespoon of grass-fed ghee
- 1 tablespoon of cacao powder (organic, raw)
- Optional: Stevia, dairy-free creamer, or heavy whipping cream (for taste)
After your coffee has brewed, add your ingredients, stir, and enjoy!
