Are you planning to shed some weight without diet or exercise? Then you should know that there are actually many ways to lose weight naturally and the popular one among those is by drinking Green tea. Yes! You’ve heard it right! Researchers have found that people who drank Green tea 2 to 6 times per day for a period of 3 months have lost 5% of their overall body weight. They actually done nothing or changed anything in their lifestyle except they’ve substituted their habit of drinking regular Tea or Coffee with Green Tea.
So, if you’re looking to reduce your body weight without skipping foods or exercising, then you should better shift to the Green zone.
To make the most out of your health drink as well as to prevent boredom, here are a few best Green tea recipes for weight loss to try at your home.

Natural Green Tea Recipe for Weight Loss
This is the untouched or the original version of the Green Tea.
What you’ll need:
Green tea bag – 1
Hot water – 1 cup
Lemon – 1/2 slice
You can simply add a half slice of Lemon to a cup of hot water with 1 Green tea bag dipped in. This pure Green tea is best for weight loss and at the same time improving your immunity system.
Iced Green Tea Recipe to Lose Weight
This special iced tea is a very simple low-calorie recipe which is both refreshing and it lowers your risk of getting diabetes and aizheimers.
What you need:
Green tea bags – 1
Water – 1 cup
Artificial sweetener (non-caloric) – 1/2 spoon
Take a cup of water (room temperature). Put the tea bag in it and move it back and forth slowly a couple of times (15 secs). Leave the tea bag in the cup and keep it in the refrigerator for about 5 minutes. Take it out, add sweetener (your choice) and serve chilled Green tea.
Lemon Grass and Ginger Iced Tea to Reduce Weight
Unlike the Iced Green tea, in this recipe we add the flavors of lemon grass and ginger, thus adding more taste to your tea.
Lemon grass – 1 fresh stalk
Ginger – 1 or 2 slices
Green tea bags – 1
Sugar – 1/2 cup (or you can add 1 spoon honey instead of sugar)
Add the lemon grass (crush it) and ginger slices into the cup of boiled water. Now, dip the tea bag in the cup and store it in a refrigerator for about 5 to 10 minutes. You can then add sugar or honey to the cup and enjoy the iced Green tea.
Iced Lavender Green Tea Recipe for Losing Weight
The recipe is very simple and is almost similar to the lemon grass & ginger iced green tea except that you replace lemon grass & ginger with dried lavender blossoms and spring lavender (optional).
This tea will energize you for sure. You can get the lavender blossoms from any natural food stores.
There are few other Green tea recipes such as Kiwi & Mango Smoothie, Green tea cranberry spritzer, green tea & blueberry smootie etc… but since your sole motive here is to lose weight drinking Green tea, we haven’t mentioned those recipes in this article. However, we’ll be publishing another article in a couple of days where you can know about those additional Green tea smoothies.
Note: For better results, drink at least 3 to 5 glasses of Green tea (any of the above 4 options) per day.
Have a healthy life.
