Fall Detox Smoothie

Hello lovely people! Recipe time! This is one of my favorite smoothies to drink in the fall. It gently detoxifies the body and promotes feelings of calm, sustained energy (vs. crazy, crash and burn energy). It’s also a great beauty boosting smoothie as the ingredients really help hydrate the skin, giving you a glowing, radiant complexion. Does any of that sound appealing to you? If not, let’s just end this conversation now and you can be on your way:)

Here is the recipe:

The Moso Bamboo Extract in this smoothie is the powerhouse ingredient, as it is chock full of skin plumping silica! You can get it here

I hope you enjoy this smoothie as much as I do! I’m always on the hunt for new, great smoothie recipes so if you have a good one, or a link to one, feel free to post it in the comments below!

Happy Hump Day and have a fabulous rest of your week!

Glowing Skin Delight Smoothie

Hello Beautiful People!

Green Smoothies make me happy. Seriously, they do! Oh, I’m Lizzie by the way. I’ll get around to introducing myself later, after I give you some more great smoothie recipes.

Ever since I discovered green smoothies, my life hasn’t really been the same. I don’t say that to be dramatic, I say that because it’s true. My eyes are brighter, my skin is clear and glowing, my energy is off the charts, and my cravings for junk foods are pretty much non-existent.

So, yeah, my life really hasn’t been the same since discovering green smoothies, which is why I love to share them with others.

This is my favorite smoothie for beautiful, glowing skin. It contains Moso Bamboo Extract which is chock full of silica. In fact, Bamboo extract is the richest known source of silica: it contains over 70% organic silica and is 10 times more potent than horsetail silica. Silica, known as the “beauty mineral”, prevents wrinkling of the skin by supporting collagen production and promotes growth of thick, strong hair, nails, and teeth. As an added benefit, Bamboo extract has also been shown to boost energy, strengthen the immune system, and promote joint health!

This smoothie is also great for your thyroid! It contains brazil nuts, which are high in selenium, a vital nutrient for thyroid health!

I made this smoothie in my Vitamix but you could also make it in a Nutribullet or a high-speed blender like the Ninja.
