The secret to glowing skin is simple: eat lots of fruit and vegetables and make sure you are feeding your skin with antioxidants, healthy fats and protein to nourish it from the inside out. This smoothie is high in hydrating, restorative minerals and antioxidants that infuse straight into your cells to give your skin the goodness it craves. Serves 2.
1 1⁄2 cups coconut water 1 cup frozen blueberries
4 leaves of baby cos (romaine) lettuce
1 tablespoon coconut yoghurt (or your choice of natural Greek-style yoghurt or kefir)
small handful of goji berries
1 teaspoon ground flaxseed or whole chia seed
1 tablespoon Healthy Chef Pure Native WPI Protein
1 tablespoon Healthy Chef Organic Superfood
COMBINE coconut water, blueberries, cos lettuce, yoghurt, goji, flaxseed, protein and superfood powder in a high-performance blender.
BLEND for 15–20 seconds until smooth and creamy.
POUR into a glass and enjoy.
+ Notes and Inspiration: Use chilled hibiscus tea as an antioxidant-packed replacement for the coconut water. It’s rich in vitamin C and has astringent properties for toning your skin. Brew it the night before so it’s lovely and chilled. It has a slight tartness like cranberries, so you may want to sweeten your smoothie by adding a little raw honey or some fresh pineapple.
