1. Iced peppermint tea

Why: Peppermint has anti inflammatory agents which not only help with acidity but will also fasten your metabolism and aid in proper digestion. It is a perfect before-the-meal drink.

Recipe: Add water to 1 bag of peppermint tea and let it cool. Now add ice cubes and squeeze a little lemon and enjoy it before every meal.

2. Pineapple frappe

Why: Pineapple is a great fruit for those who are looking to lose weight. That said, it also helps in clearing constipation and the monounsaturated fatty acids in the fruit help in burning belly fat.

Recipe: Chop pineapple into small pieces and blend it smooth with some flax seed oil. Add some ice cubes and lose weight deliciously!

3. Watermelon smoothie

Why: Watermelon is high in water content and will, therefore, keep you full for longer. That aside, it is also low in calories and is loaded with nutrients that help in weight loss. Add a little mint to your smoothie and cut fat faster!

Recipe: Chop watermelon into small pieces. Blend it with chilled water. Add a dash of lemon juice and some mint leaves. You can also replace it with one meal to lose weight faster.

4. Apple cider vinegar drink

Why: There is also a good science behind why apple cider vinegar would encourage weight loss even more effectively than eating raw apples. In general, acids help with the digestion of protein, the building blocks for some of our hormones, especially growth hormone.

Recipe: In a blender add some apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, cinnamon powder and honey and blend it smooth. Drink this first thing every morning to promote weight loss.  

5. Citrus blast

Why: This drink is apt for weight loss! Grape fruits, lemon, and lime are all high in Vitamin C, which helps to boost metabolism and immunity. This means you enjoy double benefits from a single drink!

Recipe: Chop all the fruits, add water and blend well. Throw in some mint leaves, store it in the fridge and drink the water from it after a day.
