I wanted to show you my go-to smoothie situation. It's green, it's really good for you, it fills you up between meals + it's packed with antioxidants + vitamins for your skin + hair!! It's also super refreshing for this heat wave we've been trying not to pass out in.
Here are the specifics on this smoothie:
✖️ Decreases inflammation
✖️ Supports cell turnover
✖️ Builds collagen
✖️ Fights free radicals + environmental damage
✖️ Repairs damaged skin
✖️ Increases UV protection
✖️ Maintains elasticity
✖️ Hydrates + brightens from within
So what does this all translate to?
A SUPER HEALTHY SMOOTHIE FOR GLOWING SKIN
Did I mention it's also great for your hair? It strengthens + hydrates your strands with every sip.
It's also delish + I often crave this smoothie for a mid afternoon pick-me-up!!
So without further ado, here is my GLOWING GREEN SMOOTHIE RECIPE (make sure you pack your blender in this order):
✖️ 1.5 cup filtered water
✖️ a few big handfuls of organic greens -- romaine + spinach + kale -- whichever combo you'd like
✖️ 1 peeled organic banana
✖️ 1 scoop protein powder (you don't have to include protein powder. I love it because it keeps me full longer)
✖️ 1 scoop collagen powder
✖️ 2 sticks of organic celery
✖️ 1/2 organic apple (green apples have less sugar)
✖️ 1/2 organic avocado
✖️ 1/2 peeled organic lemon
BLEND + ENJOY
If you'd like like your smoothie to be colder, add a few ice cubes.
This recipe yields 2 full glasses. Which I love for on-the-go because I cover 1 glass + keep it in the fridge until I need it next. You can store your extra smoothie for 2 days.
