A nighttime smoothie for weight loss or bedtime smoothie drink is a green smoothie that helps to sleep well. It also helps in cutting down the body fat as it has got healthy green ingredients as well as some other fat cutting ingredients that help digest well at night. They also help in losing weight at the same time.
About the recipe
This is a simple green coloured best bedtime smoothie to lose weight. It also removes belly fat by using most of the green ingredients that aid in weight loss.
I am posting this article as I feel I should try to share as many weight loss recipes as possible to help my viewers choose any drink they prefer.
This is a power-packed smoothie and not every smoothie is as helpful to lose weight as this smoothie does. Some of the smoothies work well as meal replacement smoothies and some are good to give energy and also most of the smoothies are healthy but do not aid to watch the weight.
Here, I am using some healthy substances such as cucumber, cilantro, parsley which all work in removing the body fats or overall fats. Also, adding along with them is apple cider vinegar to make a drinking smoothie to consume at night.
All the ingredients used are listed below and also additional ingredients too can be used but I chose these ingredients to make the healthy nighttime smoothie or detox bedtime smoothie without the need to sieve before consuming and easy to drink directly.
Ginger: It is a commonly used ingredient while making teas and coffees as it gives warmth. It is mostly used to make detox water and weight loss as it consists of some of those properties as well as many medicinal properties.
Cucumber: It is a hydrating vegetable as well as helps in good digestion and is also known mostly for its weight loss capability. It is used in many detox water recipes.
Parsley and Cilantro: These herbs enhance the dishes but there is more to them as they contain fat cutting properties which not only give flavour to the drink but also work well in aiming our weight goals.
Lemon: This is the most used vegetable in every drink that adds flavour, eases digestion and here in this recipe helps in removing toxins easily.
ACV: Apple cider vinegar has an amazing ability to work for weight issues and not many are aware of this miracle vinegar. This is easily available in stores and is used in detox water recipes for weight loss or drinks.
Turmeric: It helps to treat cold, cough, throat issues that occur and have also many medicinal properties to treat fat problems.
Honey: This is a sweetener as well as a wonderful ingredient to add to this smoothie to reach the goals.
Water: To give a consistency that can be thick to thin, adding water is essential as this smoothie is made to drink directly without straining.
Many ingredients can be added to modify the drink such as celery which is a very good vegetable used in many weight loss recipes. Celery should be washed well and chopped into pieces while blending the smoothie.
Celery has many benefits that aid to work in losing weight and also works well in any bedtime smoothie . Also check other healthy recipes on the blog that are oats weight loss smoothie, overnight oats for weight loss, cumin water etc...
Storing green drinks tend to lose their precious nutrients, vitamins and minerals. If required just make them a day before or early in the morning as it takes only a couple of minutes to make it quickly.
Chop off all the veggies and make the nighttime smoothie and pour it in a container and store it in the fridge to consume at night. However, making fresh and consuming is always a better idea as drinking fresh juices or smoothies have their vitamins and minerals intact and also help in giving a good bedtime sleep.
Do not make unhealthy smoothies or high-fat smoothies to drink at night. Always try to make non-fat smoothies that do not contain fats in milk or yoghurt.
Try to use a non-fat version of dairy products or it is better to avoid. Always make green smoothies using green leafy veggies or fruits which can help in good digestion and weight loss during bedtime.
Do not make smoothies that can deposit weight while sleeping. I have made a green drink bedtime smoothie that works wonders during nighttime and can also help lose weight along with a good dietary lifestyle.
Just consume it before bedtime or make it during the daytime and store it in the fridge. Consume the drink at night which can help cut down the unwanted fats deposited.
This bedtime or nighttime smoothie is good to drink during any time of the day but not every smoothie is good to drink at night.
If willing to drink it during the mornings or afternoons feel free to consume it and also follow other healthy habits.

This particular smoothie works fine as it has no sugars and contains simple ingredients. Not all smoothies that contain heavy ingredients are good to drink at night. If a smoothie contains sugary substances and high-calorie foods then do drink at night and avoid them.
Smoothies without sugars and made without using high fats are suitable to drink at night.
The best time to drink healthy smoothies is mornings, afternoons, snack time or any time of the day as they keep us full and also provide us with essential nutrients but only some smoothies are good to take at night.
