Smoothie Recipes To Create Youthful Vibrant Skin
I love to eat, hence the title of my upcoming book, Real Moms Love to Eat! Recently, I was on ABC touting the benefits of how certain foods can give you beautiful skin! I have included 2 recipes that you can make to ensure you get your share of vibrant, glowing skin, too.
Beautiful skin recipes:
Green Super Smoothie
Makes: 2 cups, 1-2 servings. Busy people love smoothies-they make a quick and energy-filled breakfast; and the best part is you/and your family won’t even taste the greens.
1/4 cup coconut water (or pure, filtered water)
1/4 cup apple juice (not from concentrate)
1 small ripe banana (peeled and frozen)
1 cup frozen blueberries (or any of your favorite berries)
1 Tablespoon ground flax seed
1 Tablespoon of flax seed oil (or similar)
1/2 cup greens (spinach or chopped kale leaves)
Place all ingredients in a blender and process on medium speed until smooth. Serve immediately.
Vibrant Energy Kale
Makes: 2 servings. When kale is cut into thin ribbons and massaged in the dressing, it softens up and has a smooth texture. Perfect lunch or side dish for dinner.
8 kale leaves, stems removed
3 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
3 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 red onion finely diced
1/2 green zucchini finely diced
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon cumin
Dash black pepper (optional)
