I have a smoothie-maker rapidly gathering dust in the back of my cupboard and I’ve decided to brush it off and put it into action this month!
I’m gonna feed my skin from the inside out with some beautifying smoothie recipes consisting of a whole host of revolting sounding ingredients! Don’t laugh… check me out at the end of the month when you’re all mistaking me for err… *insert someone with really amazing skin here*.
Anyway, you get the jist.
My first Smoothie is gonna be from skincare guru himself, Dr. Murad. I had the pleasure of meeting him a couple of years ago and listened to him talk about his theories behind the importance of ‘getting’ your water from your food as well as your drinks/general fluid intake. He’s a fascinating man and I’m looking forward to trying out his Water Secret Smoothie. I may have to hold my nose as I drink it though no?
The delicious smoothie you are about to enjoy is a wonderful way to give your body Internal Care by flooding your system with the building blocks of healthy strong cells. That’s why this smoothie provides you with:
Amino Acids: the building blocks of cell-building proteins.
Lecithin: a source for a key ingredient in cell membranes called phosphatidycholine.
Antioxidants: to protect cells from free-radical damage.
Essential Fatty Acids: to help cells attract life-sustaining water.
If you wanna join me (go on, be brave!) here’s the recipe for Dr. Murad’s The Water Secret Smoothie.
- 1/2 cup blueberry juice (unsweetened)
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1/2 cup raspberries (fresh or unsweetened frozen)
- 1 tablespoon lecithin granules
- 1 small banana
- 3 to 4 cubes of ice (optional)
- Stevia extract or Agave Nectar (optional) to tast
I’ve just picked up my lecithin granules from here with free delivery, blueberry juice is looking a little elusive at the moment but the rest should be simple enough to find.
Hope it’s not revolting!
