I’ve already had a dabble in the world of beauty drinks, and whilst I’m not really a believer in buying pricey bottles of water to make you look amazing, because lets face it, any change they may bring would most likely be so minute it wouldn’t be worth the money anyway. After all ladies, we already have enough creams and serums making us promises, without adding the guzzling of so called beauty drinks to the mix. Save the pennies and buy yourself some nice skin care instead. Wait a minute though… how’s about a beauty smoothie you can make at home that will not only make you body beautiful inside and out, but will be a lot kinder to the wallet. I’m in.
I love the idea that what we eat and drink, can have a direct effect on the way we look and feel. Not that I’m some health nut – wish I was though, (I’m literally writing this post peanut butter ice cream binge) BUT… I think it’s pretty cool that if we eat and drink natural stuff, our insides will love us and we’ll look good too. Score. Take my paper thin nails for example. They break all the time from being extremely weak, and nothing really helps. Thanks to the Juice Master Jason Vale, this hard as nails smoothie will not only make your entire body happy, but will also help make your nails stronger and improve your overall health. Can’t argue with that.
Grab a blender, grab these ingredients, and lets get blending beautiful!
- 1 small handful almonds
- 1 small handful blueberries
- 1 small handful blackberries
- 4 ice cubes
- 1 small banana
- 1 pinch fresh mint (for garnishing)
- 1/4 cup mineral water
So.. How will this smoothie help beautify me?!
Almonds are wonderful at helping to level the body’s alkaline/acid balance, as well as being packed full of essential oils, and trace minerals such as magnesium which is excellent at helping strengthen, grow and repair the nails.
Blueberries and Blackberries contain B vitamins and folic acid, and are well known for helping the body maintain natural balance, as well as helping it to work as a whole.
Bananas are an excellent nail and bone builder as they are one of the richest sources of potassium in the world. They are crammed with amino acids which are the building blocks for protein.
Mint is a wonderful decongestant and also tastes amazing!
What’s in the Smoothie?! Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, C and E, calcium, potassium, phosphorous, iron, sodium, zinc, magnesium, folic acid, amino acids, ‘good’ essential fats, and natural sugars.
Now that’s what I call a beauty drink!
