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 wonít have to use sweeteners that can also cause bloating.

Ingredients

2 1/2 cups lemon juice
15 peppermint leaves

Directions

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.

Anti-Bloat Chocolate Berry Smoothie

Constipation is a common culprit that causes bloating. If you donít 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 for milk.

Ingredients

1 cup strawberries
1 cup raspberries
2 tbsp dark chocolate chips
1 cup almond milk
1 cup ice

Directions

Combine ingredients and blend!
