This is the spinach breakfast smoothie for weight loss for people who don't like spinach—but want to.

In fact, this drink serves up 33 percent of the day's vitamin A—most of which comes from the leaves. The addition of chia seeds and flax provides four grams of satiating fiber so be sure to keep those in the mix if you're looking to sip as much protein as possible.

Serves: 1
Nutrition: 212 calories, 0 g fat, 0 g sat fat, 17 g carbs, 0.7 g fiber, 7 g sugar, 42 g protein
Protein Source: Fat-free cottage cheese and protein powder

Key Lime pie may taste great, but with ingredients like heavy cream, sweetened condensed milk, butter, and sugar it's anything but great for your waistline. This shake, on the other hand, is low in sugar and overflowing with 42 grams of muscle-building protein—that's more than a day's worth of the nutrient for someone who's not very active and nearly half of what you'll need if you're a religious gym rat. We know the addition of cottage cheese may sound a bit strange, but that's what gives this drink its satisfying milkshake-esque consistency. If you're sensitive to dairy, swap in tofu to achieve the same texture. To keep your drink as healthy as possible, nix the pudding mix and xanthan gum—they only add calories and chemicals you don't need.

Although this drink shouldn't be your everyday go-to—it does contain Oreos, after all—it's an excellent alternative whenever a craving for something sweet strikes. Opting for this weight loss smoothie over a Dairy Queen Oreo Cookie Blizzard of the same size will save you 20 grams of fat and 48 grams of sugar!

Grape and Blueberry Protein Smoothie

Serves: 1
Nutrition: 320 calories, 9 g fat, 1.8 g saturated fat, 6.5 g fiber, 37 g sugar, 9 g protein
Protein Source: Cooked and cooled scrambled eggs, almond milk

If you're not big into the idea of using nutrition powders—or you've simply run of out your go-to—you'll love this creative breakfast smoothie for weight loss. The blogger calls for a scrambled and blended egg in lieu of whey or plant protein, which is a fat-incinerating idea we totally love! The egg's protein aids muscle recovery and the choline in the yolk fights fat cells to give you that lean look you crave. As an added bonus, the berries and grapes provide more than a day's worth of vitamin C, which aids trim-down efforts further by warding off cortisol, a pesky stress hormone that triggers the storage of fat.

French Toast Protein Shake

Serves: 1
Nutrition: 235 calories, 0 g fat, 0 g sat fat, 12 g carbs, 1.2 g fiber, 14 g sugar, 42 g protein
Protein Source: Fat-free cottage cheese and protein powder

The fresh French toast taste you love with a lot more protein and a fraction of the fat and calories—now that's something worth waking up for! Though we love the idea of this shake, we're not so keen on the recommended three to five packets of Stevia. Since the sweetener is so much sweeter than sugar, we suggest starting with two packets and slowly adding more if you think it's needed. The less you can get away with using, the better.

Raspberry Cheesecake

Raspberry cheesecake weight loss smoothies

A typical slice of raspberry cheesecake from a restaurant can have an upwards of 930 waist-widening calories, with the majority of those coming from sugar and fat—not what you want to be eating if you're trying to work off those love handles. Next time a dessert craving strikes, make this instead. It may not taste exactly the same, but it's close enough to satisfy your taste buds.
