Emily Nachazel's Quick And Easy Berry Avocado Beauty Smoothie
Despite its murky color, this green smoothie tastes GREAT and is packed with all my favorite beauty foods. Coconut water and leafy greens hydrate your cells, berries provide anti-aging antioxidants, and the healthy fats from avocado keep your skin soft (I promise, you won’t taste it in there!). Tocos is an incredible superfood, the "Ultimate Skin Food" as it contains bio-available vitamins D & E. But probably the most potent (and maybe weirdest) beauty food is collagen protein. Collagen is what is responsible for giving skin elasticity, hair its strength, and connective tissue its ability to hold everything in place. It’s pure protein so you will stay satisfied and energized for hours. Isn’t that beautiful?
- 2 cups coconut water
- large handful of baby spinach or kale
- 1 cup frozen berries
- 1/2 avocado
- 2 tbsp tocos powder
- 2 tbsp pure collagen protein
Add all ingredients to your high speed blender and blend until smooth and creamy. If desired, top with hemp seeds or coconut flakes and ENJOY!
Note: This smoothie will be thick! I like mine this way and eat them with a spoon, but if you want a thinner smoothie, just add more liquid.
