Doesn’t sound that perfect? Protect Skin Raspberry Smoothie? A perfect smoothie after your workout which contains tons of healthy Skin benefits.
We want it all! Perfect shine and soft skin, right? But how can we get it? Beside the right care we can help our skin to be healthy with the right diet and food. I called this smoothie Protect Skin Raspberry Smoothie because of the coconut milk and superfood blend I use. Coconut milk has skin-nourishing properties because of its Vitamin-E. This Vitamin is very important and helpful for healthy skin growth and repair. Above all, it prevents premature aging of the skin, since it has good antioxidant properties.
Make sure you use organic coconut milk for your smoothie without any additional additives. You often find hidden additives which are non-healthy for you.
To eat hemp seeds– which you can find in the “Balance Superfood Blend” from boostyourself you find in this smoothie (if you like to add it) is also e great opportunity to get better skin. Hemp seeds contains high quality oils like omega-6 fatty acids which increases the elasticity of your skin and brings new life to dry and tired skin. I love to use superfoods with lots of health benefits. Sometimes I use the separate superfoods but sometimes I love to have a mix on hand so I don’t need to mix them up by myself. You know the situation that you need to hurry up and need to mix up a smoothie fast without thinking too much what to add exactly to make it more healthy. That’s the reason why superfood blends exists – to make your life more easy LOL.
I use dates in all my smoothies as a natural sweetener. Normally 2 are enough to get a sweet taste but you can you use more when you like it more sweet. When you read the recipe you may first thing “salt?” Why is the adding salt into a smoothie? Salt is a great way to anhance the flavor of all the other ingredients. Adding salt to foods helps certain molecules in those foods more easily release. I tried it out with and without salt. And it really works!
