Skin Saver Smoothie!

Wednesday, November 6, 2013

I don't know about you but once the clock's go back, and my mornings are greeted by a frosty lawn and   a very chilly walk to my car, my skin goes crazy! I start glopping up with heavy duty moisturizer, lip balm and hand cream. We all know it is important to take care of your skin but it does not stop as products. What we eat and drink plays a major role in keeping your skin healthy! This Smoothie recipe is the perfect balance to not only enhance the moisture in you skin, but also aid in anti-againg and luminosity!

Why is this smoothie so A-MAE-ZING!?!?!

  • Coconut Oil -which helps keep skin supple and healthy with emollients, antioxidants, and healthy fats.
  • Spinach-which prevents oxidative stress (when UV rays cause damage or dull-looking skin).
  • Strawberries- are a major anti-inflammatorie. 
  • Peanut Butter- Protein rich and a great source Vitamin B6 which aids in Metabolism.
  • Bananas-Full of Potassium, Rich in Vitamin A, B and E, hence the anti-aging benefits.  
  • *A fresh mashed banana works wonders as a face mask :) 

Why the need for Extras?!?!

Depending on your activity level this smoothie can make a great Post-Workout as well! We have a Vegan option too! 
  • Adding the Tofu and or Protein Powder adds the essential building blocks for muscle recovery. 
  • The Raw Cocoa is rich in Anti-oxidants and provides the body natural energy! 
  • Pumpkin seeds are one of the most protein rich seeds. They also have a long list of benefits! 
  • Help the body create ATP for energy
  • Rich in Zinc for immunity
  • plant based omega-3's 
  • Anti-inflammatory 
This particular smoothie was post workout so I added half a scoop of 
  • Mercola banana whey protein 
  • few cubes of Tofu
