Skin Saving Smoothie

Beverages

I've been working on 'Nutrition for Your Skin' presentation for a guest speaking event I'm doing this weekend. As I was creating it, I was going over the foods that have the most important nutrients for your skin and I was inspired to make a simple smoothie that would include all these amazing skin healing ingredients. 

This smoothie has exactly what you need for healthy, clear, gorgeous skin - dark leafy greens, healthy fats, antioxidants, vitamin C and water for hydration. It’s simple to make and is a great breakfast or afternoon snack.

Enjoy!

Ingredients

serves 1

  • 2 cups filtered water
  • 1 cup packed spinach or kale
  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup frozen mango
  • 1/2 an avocado, pitted and peeled
  • 2 Tbsp hemp seeds
  • 1 Tbsp ground flax seeds
  • ½ tsp cinnamon

Tips & Nutrition

I love this smoothie in the morning as the healthy fats, greens and plant based proteins are energizing! 

You can switch up your greens to include chard or bok choy - different ones have different nutrients (all which are amazing for your skin). 

Feel free to add your favourite plant based protein if you like or enjoy it with a handful of walnuts for extra skin healing!

Method

Blend all ingredients in the order they are listed in a high speed blender until smooth & creamy.  Enjoy!
