Losing weight takes time, but you can drink your belly bloat away in just minutes. Sip your way to feeling and looking slimmer.
Lemon Peppermint Ice Cubes
Indigestion is one of the most common causes of bloating. Peppermint improves the flow of bile to digest fats better. Lemon adds flavor so you won’t have to use sweeteners that can also cause bloating.
2 1/2 cups lemon juice
15 peppermint leaves
Freeze peppermint leaves in lemon juice in an ice cube tray. Add 3 cubes to every glass of water at least 3 times a day, or with meals.
A diet high in salt can bring on the bloat, causing your body to retain water. Pomegranate juice contains magnesium and potassium to counteract this. Tabasco has capsaicin to increase urine flow and rid your body of excess salt. This non-alcoholic beverage also helps you avoid the hidden bloating effects of alcohol.
1 cup low-sugar pomegranate juice
1/8 tsp Tabasco sauce
1/2 cup ginger ale
Mix ingredients and enjoy!
Anti-Bloat Chocolate Berry Smoothie
Constipation is a common culprit that causes bloating. If you don’t go to the bathroom every day, you could be constipated. High-fiber berries aid constipation, and the caffeine in chocolate stimulates bowel movement. Difficulty digesting lactose in milk is also a contributor to bloating, so try almond milk as a lactose-free substitute.
1 cup strawberries
1 cup raspberries
2 tbsp dark chocolate chips
1 cup almond milk
1 cup ice
Combine ingredients and blend!
