Good Morning Gorgeous Skin Glowing Smoothie!

A new green smoothie to add to your arsenal and help your skin glow!

I was just speaking to one on my good friends about smoothies… one of my favorite subjects, of course!

We were discussing the need to mix up our green smoothie routine because if you are as religious about your morning (or anytime) smoothies as we are, even the most delicious smoothies can get boring after a while and it is good to get a well-rounded mix of healthy ingredients, for your body and for your taste buds.

So, this morning I opened my fridge and started mixing it up a little… literally… in the blender :o)

This smoothie is a glorious salad in a glass, it is cool, refreshing and filled with nutrition. What a benefit to start the day getting all of these nutrients super boosted into your system! This particular blend is also packed with power houses for your hair and skin. Along with feeling great, looking great is an added bonus.

Spinach is loaded with Iron and loaded with vitamins and minerals, including vitamin A which helps keep our hair moisturized and keeps our skin and bones healthy.  Vitamin C needed for the maintenance of collagen, huge bonus! If a healthy body does not win out in keeping you powering down those greens then it is okay for a little vanity to win… the right smoothies help your skin look great!

Zucchini is  packed with vitamin C and vitamin A, it is also  high in Fiber and Manganese. Manganese is responsible for producing Proline, which is an amino acid that allows the formation of collagen! Again, beautiful skin booster!

Cucumbers are amazing for rehydration, which of course is great for your skin! They are also great for flushing out toxins and the vitamin B is an energy boost.

Green! Green! Green!

1/2 banana (frozen or fresh)

1 cup mango (frozen or fresh)

1/2 cucumber

1/2 zucchini

2 handfuls of spinach

1 inch of fresh ginger (cut off of a root)

Juice of 1 lemon (add as much as you would like, I love a lot of lemon so I usually add the juice of another half of lemon)

Cinnamon (sprinkle in to suit your taste)

If you are using fresh fruit add a cup of ice. Blend away and Enjoy!

I hope you like it and I hope it gives you the boost you need :o)

  1. I was in a green smoothie rut until I made this for breakfast and loved it! I used nut milk instead of water to make it a bit creamier and I will absolutely make this again and again. Thanks for this great recipe! xx
