Forget doing another set of crunches at the gym. Tomorrow morning, sip on this deliciously sweet kale smoothie for bloating that's packed with ingredients to make your stomach happy for under 300 calories.

The Greek yogurt in the recipe provides a good amount of calcium and protein, both of which can aid in weight loss. The smoothie for bloating also contains several ingredients—like blueberries—which have been shown to help diminish belly fat. (Psst...here are seven reasons you might be hanging on to that pesky waist weight.)  If that's not enough, you also get the sweetness of pineapple, which contains an enzyme that helps ease digestion and banish bloat. You won't be able to taste the kale, which is full of fiber to prevent constipation, as well as calorie-free water to help clean you out. (Related: 10 Foods That Help with Bloating)
