3 Green Beauty Smoothies: Glowing Skin From Within
I've been in love with the simplicity and efficacy of green smoothies for about 5-years now. Why? Because eating three servings of greens and two servings of fruit every day isn't always easy to do. We live in such fast-paced world and, for me, there's nothing like slowing down a bit to enjoy one of my three green beauty smoothies.
Before we dive into my 3 green beauty smoothie recipes, let's take a look at the benefits of drinking green smoothies:
- Effortless weightless by combating cravings.
- Increase in vegetable and fruit intake.
- Improved cognitive function.
- Increase in energy.
- Supports colon and gut health.
- Boosts your immune system.
- Promotes glowing skin, rapid hair growth, and strong nails.
Chocolate Lovers Smoothie
My Chocolate Lovers Smoothie is perfect for those of you who, like me, adore their dark chocolate! This decadent smoothie is not only a chocolate lovers dream come true because of the flavor but it will have also your skin glowing from within. The flavanols in raw cacao powder act as antioxidants that provide sun protection. Raw Cacap also evens skin resulting in a healthier appearance and feel. The raw cacao isn't the only secret weapon in this green beauty smoothie. The spinach, chia seeds, strawberries and walnuts boost your green smoothie with iron, fatty acids and Vitamins B, C, A, and K all of which are known to promote healthy skin.
- 1 Cup Spinach
- 2 TBSP Raw Cacao Powder
- 1/2 Cup of Strawberries
- 1 TSP Chia Seeds
- 1 TBSP Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
- Handful of Walnuts
- 1 Cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
- Top with 1 TBSP of cubed Dark Chocolate
Tropical Paradise Smoothie Recipe
Next up on the green beauty smoothie train is the Tropical Paradise Smoothie! Sipping on this baby is like laying in a hammock in the Dominican Republic while breathing in the salty ocean air. It is a favorite of mine not only because it tastes like a tropical getaway but because ingredients like papaya, mango, almonds and coconut oil make it the ideal smoothie for sun kissed skin. This smoothie is packed with iron, Vitamins A, B, E, and K. It's also rich in antioxidants that defend against sun damage and free radicals. Lastly, it aids in moisturizing and clearing your skin while reducing under eye circles and wrinkles.

- Handful of Almonds
- 1 TSP Coconut Oil
- 1 TSP Ground Flax Seeds
- 1/2 Cup of Mango
- 1/2 Cup Papaya
- 1 Cup Unsweetened Coconut Water

Orange Creamsicle Smoothie Recipe
Last but certainly not least is the delicious Orange Creamsicle Smoothie! Orange Creamsicle is the one green beauty smoothie that technically isn't green as the color tends to be more on the orange side. It has a creamy texture, thanks to the avocado, and tastes just like an orange creamsicle. This smoothie is chock-full of antioxidants and is an immune boosting powerhouse. Ingredients like turmeric powder, avocado, carrot, and orange make it ideal for unclogging pores, detoxifying the skin, repairing skin tissue, and reducing scarring.
- 1 Cup Kale
