If you’d like to enjoy shiny hair, glowing skin, and strong nails without spending thousands of Rands on expensive beauty treatments, then I have some good news for you.
I spend a lot of time thinking of organic skincare solutions that are low-maintenance and easy to use. It doesn’t matter where I am, you’ll definitely catch me sipping on protein smoothie or vegetable juice. And, it’s also that I used the same smoothie recipe I’m drinking to make a face mask for myself.
This great tasty green smoothie recipe I’m about to share will help you break free from constant sugar cravings, detoxify your body and start each day loaded with energy. Let’s not forget the fact that you’ll be looking your best or can I say glowing! It’s packed with loads of essential minerals and vitamins that will leave your skin looking lusciously healthy in no time. So, blend one of these smoothies up on a daily waiting and watch your skin start to glow. Enjoy!
Smoothie recipe for clear, glowing skin
2 cups of water (or more if you prefer thin smoothies)
3 medium bananas, fresh or frozen
1 small orange, peeled and roughly chopped
½ small grapefruit, peeled and roughly chopped (optional, if you like a bitter undertone)
2 tsp of maca powder
Two tsp of chia seeds or hemp seeds (optional)
2 large handfuls of spinach
1 large handful of kale (or extra spinach)
Blend bananas, orange, water, grapefruit, maca and chia seeds on high-speed until smooth. Add spinach and kale. Blend again. Pour into a tall glass and enjoy.
PS: If you don’t have time in the morning, try to prepare this smoothie at night, store it in an airtight container in your fridge and carry it with you the next day. It will make a great on the go breakfast, but you can also have it as a quick snack for that much needed energy boost in the afternoon!
