Glowing Skin Smoothie

In case you haven’t heard, juicing is the new trend, and I’m not talking about the Barry Bonds kind of juicing. I love kick starting my day off with a fruit and vegetable juice/smoothie. It gives me energy, doesn’t weigh me down, and I swear it’s the reason I lost my baby weight so fast. That, and also because who has time to eat when you have a newborn? This drink isn’t just good for your waist either, but it’s also PACKED with amazing benefits for your skin! 012I am a firm believer that good skin starts from within, and this juice has so many health benefits!

Here’s to name a few:

  • Strawberries are loaded with antioxidants, which destroy free radicals. They also contain vitamin C, which helps produce collagen. In addition, they contain Malic acid which is a natural whitening agent.
  • Pineapple contains alpha-hydroxy acids that help slow down the ageing of skin. Pineapple is also rich in vitamin A, vitamin B1, vitamin B6, vitamin C, and various minerals. But that’s not all! It has a proteolytic enzyme bromelain with anti-inflammatory properties, it prevents and reduces age spots and wrinkles, AND it makes the skin firm by increasing collagen production.
  • Peaches contain vitamin C which again, boosts the production of collagen and gives your skin elasticity. In addition, the vitamin C in peaches also works with protein to improve your immune system, helping to ward off skin infections. Peaches also bring moisture to your skin.
  • Bananas are rich in vitamin A, vitamin B and vitamin E, and act as an anti-ageing agent. They are a rich source of fiber, minerals, magnesium, and potassium.
  • Carrots contain vitamin C, which prevents wrinkles and slows the process of aging. Vitamin A, being an antioxidant, also attacks the free radicals to prevent the signs of aging like wrinkles, pigmentation and an uneven skin tone. Beta-carotene, found in carrots, is a skin-friendly nutrient that helps repair the skin tissues and provides protection against the sun’s harsh rays. The antioxidants and carotenoids protect and condition the skin to increase its immunity against the sun and heal sunburns. So basically, it acts as a natural sun block!

And for even more added benefits, add a squeeze of fresh lemon or orange juice!

The reason  why I call this a juice/smoothie, is because it’s not made with a juicer, so it’s not a “traditional” juice, but it also doesn’t contain any additives like yogurt or ice cubes, so it’s not a “traditional” smoothie either. I like using a blender because when you consume the whole fruits and vegetables, you get ALL the amazing benefits and fiber! It also makes it more filling.

017Whenever I make a juice/smoothie drink, I like to add a combination of fresh and frozen fruits and vegetables. The frozen fruits keep the drink ice cold and thick, while the fresh ones prevent it from being too thick. The addition of banana also keeps its thick and creamy.

This drink is so sweet and refreshing. I promise you can’t even taste the carrot juice! And just look how pretty bright orange it is!

  1. I have been browsing online greater than 3 hours as of late,
    but I by no means discovered any fascinating article like yours.
    It is pretty price sufficient for me. In my view, if all web owners
    and bloggers made good content material as you did, the web
    might be much more useful than ever before.

  2. Great blog you have here but I was curious about if you knew of any forums that cover the same topics talked about in this article?
    I’d really like to be a part of community where I can get comments from other knowledgeable people
    that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know.

    Many thanks!

  3. I just want to tell you that I am just very new to blogging and truly savored you’re web-site. More than likely I’m planning to bookmark your site . You definitely come with very good well written articles. Thanks a lot for sharing with us your website.

  4. Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m
    having a hard time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs
    and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but
    I had to ask!

  5. When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is
    added I get three emails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
    Bless you!

    1. Uh oh! I don’t think I know how to fix that! If you look at the very bottom of the email, there might be a “unsubscribe” button. Best of luck!

  6. Right here is the right site for anybody who would like to understand
    this topic. You understand so much its almost tough to argue
    with you (not that I personally will need to…HaHa).

    You definitely put a new spin on a subject which
    has been written about for many years. Great stuff, just
    wonderful!

  7. With havin so much content and articles do you
    ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My blog has a lot of unique content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do
    you know any techniques to help protect against content from being
    ripped off? I’d really appreciate it.

    1. Unfortunately it’s really hard to stop it! I have a copyright disclosure at the end of each post, but people could still copy and paste it if they wanted to.

  8. Oh my goodness! Amazing article dude! Thanks, However I am going through difficulties with your RSS.
    I don’t understand why I can’t join it. Is there anyone else getting similar RSS issues?
    Anyone who knows the answer will you kindly
    respond? Thanks!!

  9. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to
    my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe
    you would have some experience with something like this.

    1. I designed the logo myself and chose the colors, theme, etc, but I did hire a website designer to put it all together. I’m not good with all the HTML coding!

  13. May I simply say what a comfort to find somebody who genuinely knows
    what they are talking about on the net. You actually realize how
