Glowing Skin Smoothie + What to Eat for Perfect Skin
This smoothie is PACKED with all of the essential foods for that smooth, glowing skin you've always wanted.
√ The avocado. Avocados hydrate your skin which brings back that glow we all crave. It is filled with oils and good fats to promote health skin and hair.
√ The mangos and pineapple. Mangos contain carotenoids, which help our skin glow while pineapples are high in vitamin C. These nutrients help produce collagen which makes our skin firm and youthful.
√ Spinach OR kale may be used. Both are nutrient dense super foods! Try throwing these guys in soups, salads, omelets, etc!
√ Coconut water. It’s incredibly hydrating and makes skin look more youthful and shiny. It's not the best tasting thing under the sun, but added into a smoothie its fine! Plus, you get used to that taste :)
If you’re replacing a meal with this smoothie, try adding a little flax or flax oil. Your skin needs oil to keep it hydrated! 2-3 teaspoons per serving is perfect.
