Smoothie Recipe Key Beauty Ingredient: Superfoods!

Organic Spring Superfood Smoothie

Benefits of Superfoods: Superfoods are nutrient-dense foods that pack large doses of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and polyphenols. I’ve included some of my favorites, all blended into this tasty smoothie that will help reveal fresh and dewy skin just in time for spring.

 

  • Pumpkin Seeds – Filled with amino acids and unsaturated fats including skin-loving omega-3’s.

  • Lucuma – This low-glycemic sweetener contains many nutrients including beta-carotene, iron, zinc, vitamin B3, calcium and protein. Has a lovely maple flavor.

  • Maca – Amazing adaptogenic-like qualities nurture and balance the body’s endocrine system. It also energizes naturally and can aid in reproductive function, helping to balance hormones and increase fertility.

  • Bee Pollen – This food of the young bee is approximately 40% protein. It is considered one of nature’s most completely nourishing foods. It can help alleviate seasonal allergies (but must be taken 6 weeks before and throughout the season).

  • Spirulina – Part of the blue/green algae family, it is one of the most nutritious and concentrated food sources on the planet. It’s a whopping 65% protein with anti-inflammatory amino acids. It can also help with seasonal allergies.

  • Chia Seeds – The single richest source of plant-based omega-3 fatty acids and its soluble and insoluble fiber helps keep digestion moving supporting proper elimination and therefore detoxification.

  • Blueberries – Besides being delicious, they are filled with phytochemicals, flavinoids and soluble fiber to tame inflammation and boost beauty.
