Although exercising and eating a balanced diet is crucial for weight loss, the kind of beverage you drink is equally important. Many popular beverages are too high in sugar and fat content while being low in nutritional value. Examples include fruit smoothies, soda, diet coke, coffee late, energy drinks, and milkshakes.
Weight Loss Drinks with Natural Fat Burners
Choosing your drinks wisely is important when trying to lose weight, and some beverages are even found to accelerate fat burning. Here are just 7 examples of natural fat burners that can be made into powerful weight loss drinks.
7 Belly Fat Burning Drinks
1. Apple Cider Vinegar Elixir
Apple cider vinegar is the main ingredient here, and it has been found to reduce body weight, body fat, and triglyceride levels.  Ginger was found in another study to reduce body fat without affecting pancreas functioning. 
Cayenne pepper was found to boost basal metabolic rate, and it also protects blood vessel health.  With all these benefits in just one drink, the apple cider vinegar elixir should be a part of the best diet plan. Get the complete recipe here.
2. Green Tea
A cup of green tea in the afternoon is a great way to rewind after a busy day. But green tea can also help in weight loss. The most potent compound in green tea is the antioxidant epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). EGCG was found in one study to have a positive effect on weight loss and weight maintenance, but it is the caffeine content in green tea that boosts your metabolism. 
3. Cocoa Powder Drink
The sugar and fat in chocolate products are what inevitably leads to weight gain, while cocoa can only do you good. To achieve faster weight loss with the help of cocoa, you’ll have to skip the milk and sugar and make this simple drink using only cocoa powder and hot water.
The taste is rather bitter, but it’s worth it as one study found that cocoa powder offsets some of the side effects of a high-fat diet, namely weight gain and inflammation. 
4. Cold Water
This one may not seem like news, but it’s important to note that drinking plain old water aids in weight loss.  In fact, replacing your usual beverages with water inevitably leads to weight loss no matter what your weight loss program is.
But you will get even greater weight loss if you drink cold water as your body needs to burn a few calories to heat up the water to core body temperature.
5. Green Smoothies
There are so many green smoothie recipes to choose from, and most of them are pretty good. According to a study published in the British Journal of Nutrition, smoothie consumption, in general, was associated with greater antioxidant activity and vasodilation – both of which help with weight loss. 
Green smoothies contain less sugar and more nutrients than fruit and dairy smoothies. We suggest you try this vegan cucumber, apple, and a ginger smoothie for top-speed fat burning.
6. Pineapple Water with Cucumber and Mint
This drink is refreshing and contains zero calories. The drink is infused with the refreshing taste of mint and cucumber while adding the additional benefits of pineapple. If you plan on eating the pineapple slices once you’ve made this drink, then you get the anti-inflammatory benefits of pineapple as well. 
Pineapple is a rich source of bromelain which studies found decreases inflammation in the body. To make this flavored water drink, click here.
7. Protein Shakes
Bodybuilders and other gym goers know the importance of getting enough protein. Protein is the main source of amino acids that are important for muscle growth. The more muscle you have, the more fat your body can burn. 
Other than that, protein also suppresses appetite, and one study even found that whey protein supplements increase fat loss while sparing muscle in obese subjects. 
Ditch those energy drinks and sugar-sweetened beverages and try out some of these easy-to-make drinks for faster fat burning to help you achieve your weight loss goals.
