We all know that fruits and vegetables are essential for our skin, as they provide our bodies with a wide variety of naturally occurring vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, antioxidants and enzymes – all needed to ensure optimum health and glow.
Most national health organisations recommend that adults eat at least five kinds of vegetable and two kinds of fruit every day. A good way to eat our daily requirements of plant foods is to drink them!
Ingredients – Serves 4
2 large handfuls spinach
1 teaspoon spirulina
1 teaspoon wheat grass powder
2 teaspoons nutritional yeast
1 teaspoon maca powder
1 teaspoon acai berry powder
1 teaspoon bee pollen
A large handful frozen mixed berries
Filtered water (amount will vary depending on preferred consistency)
1. Place all ingredients in a Vitamix (or other high powered blender). Blend ingredients until a smooth consistency is achieved. It’s then ready to serve!
Note: You can use any fruits and greens you like – the most important thing is that it tastes yummy!! Variety is important; so, one day use spinach and the next day try kale, iceberg, or romaine hearts – mix it up. You can also change your fruits, mango cheeks, bananas, kiwi fruit, etc…
Go slow with the greens and use more fruit in the beginning so as to get your taste buds accustomed to the taste of greens.
