Put the Spring Back in Your Skin – Glowing Skin Smoothie Recipe!
You may have already seen me talk about how much I LOVE my new Nutraceutical line at Skinapeel Beauty – Hush&Hush. They create healthy supplements & protein powder to improve skin, hair, immune system & more…from the inside-out!
As an Aesthetician & Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, I’m passionate about providing my clients with best solutions their skin and overall health. I started in the skin care/wellness industry because I was determined to heal my own skin issues that were frustrating, embarrassing, and seemingly hopeless. During the process I learned so much about how and why the food we eat is related to how our skin looks and feels on the outside. The common denominator is almost ALWAYS none other than…your gut!
Eating the right foods for your body is just as imperative as using the proper skin care ingredients in your home skin care routine. It can be tough to know where to start, I understand! I wanted to share one of the ways I love to start my day on a gut and skin-healthy track, using all-time favorite protein powder – PlantYourDay – to make this refreshing and skin-friendly smoothie.
It’s gluten-free, contains 20g of vegan protein with Pea & Pumpkin Seeds, has pre & probiotics, and boasts more super-greens than a green smoothie. It also contains 110 calories, 2 g fiber, and only 4 carbs. I love the taste (chocolate AND vanilla) and lack of an aftertaste, which I feel is hard to find in other protein powders I’ve tried. I also find myself to have more energy and feel more hydrated when I start my day with it.
Enjoy healthy energy & glowing skin all day long with this delicious smoothie!
Kimberly’s Glowing-Skin Smoothie
1 cup Plant-based milk
2 scoops PlantYourDay Protein powder
1 tbsp of chia seeds & flaxseed mixed
1 tbsp Cacao Powder
1 handful of gluten-free, organic oats
1 handful of spinach
1 tbsp Nut butter of choice (I use organic Almond Butter)
A couple of cauliflower florets
1/4 to 1/2 a frozen banana
A pinch of cinnamon
A handful cacao nibs
Directions: Mix all ingredients together in a blender and mix until smooth. Add cacao nibs and blend for 10 more seconds. Voila!! Healthy skin (and gut!) in a jar. 😘
**Tip: For even better flavor (in my opinion) and to save yourself time in the morning, you can also add in all the ingredients to a blender jar with the exception of the ice, frozen banana and cacao nibs. Refrigerate overnight, and add in the rest of the ingredients when you’re ready to eat! This way, you’ll also have more time in the morning for other things which can be a huge bonus!
