Green & Glowing Smoothie

Green & Glowing Smoothie

I love smoothies.  Smoothies are a good way to get a heaping of packed vitamins in your diet, and in a yummy way.  I love coming up with my own recipes. You can get really creative with them!  Here's a beauty detox smoothie recipe that will leave you feeling healthy from the inside out.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Cup of Chopped Kale
  • 1 Banana
  • 1 Pear
  • 1 Celery Stalk
  • 1 Tbsp Honey
  • 2 Cup Water

Add kale, banana, pear, and celery to the blender.  Add the honey and water next, then blend.

Benefits of Kale:

Kale is a great source of iron, which help with our hemoglobin and liver functions.  Kale is super alkalizing to the body.  This super food will keep your body in homeostasis. In other words, Kale will keep your body PH balanced.  Kale is full of antioxidants that help fight and prevent cancer, through prevention of inflammation in the body and skin.

 

Benefits of Bananas:

Not only are bananas super yummy, but they're packed with vitamins and minerals.  They contain vitamin B9 that boosts your mood and helps fight depression.  Bananas also help with sugar cravings. Instead of grabbing that Snickers bar, (which we're all guilty of) pick up a banana instead.  Bananas also help with bloating and they build lean muscle. Awesome!

 

Benefits of Pears:

Pears are full of antioxidants.  They are very high in vitamin C, helping to build your immunity and heal your skin from acne.  They also contain vitamin A, which helps keep wrinkles at bay and improve your skin's overall health.

Benefits of Celery:

Celery detoxes the body as an antioxidant.  It also prevents and fights cancer.  Celery builds your immunity and is very alkalizing to the body.  Celery also helps with weight loss and is  fantastic for balancing hormones.

Benefits of Honey:

Honey is very hydrating.  It's also an amazing immunity booster! It contains a ton of antioxidants that help keep free radicals away.  Many people don't know this, but honey also heals acne. Honey face-mask anyone?

I believe that true beauty comes from within, and what better way to nurture that beauty than with a yummy smoothie healing your body from the inside out!
