Hello glowing readers! 

If you have been dealing with skin issues like dull, lifeless, wrinkled or tired skin, this suggests that your skin needs care. And what better way to provide a natural glow and shine to your skin than to include some yummy fruits in your diet.

Some people are genetically blessed with good skin, and others have to strive hard to attain that perfect skin goal. There is no need to worry, as including some of the following fruits in your diet can help you get that wow glow! Enjoy!

 

INGREDIENTS 

  • ½ cup coconut water 
  • 1 cup mango 
  • 1 cup pineapples 
  • ½ cup strawberries diced 

(1 CUP SPINACH & 1 TBS OF CHIA SEEDS IF YOU PREFER)

INSTRUCTIONS

Simply follow ingredients in order. Main liquid should be the added FIRST to any smoothie. It sets the consistency of prettygirlsoothies. Never put yogurt first. The yogurt will stay stuck to the bottom. Its always important to chop all fruits and vegetables before blending your prettygirlsmoothies. I recommend prepping all smoothies in advance (as soon as you get home from the store). TAKES 10-15 MINS MAX 

EAT CLEAN LOOK LEAN!

  EXTRA FACTS 

MANGOS

The yummy, juicy and succulent mango is a wonder food for rejuvenating your skin. Mango contains vitamin A, C, E and K. It also contains beta-carotene, flavonoids, polyphenolics and xanthophylls. Being a rich source of fibre and dietary sugar, this fruit is beneficial in keeping away tummy troubles such as constipation. This fruits also has anti-inflammatory properties and also protects the skin from any kind of DNA damage. The healing properties of mango make it an ideal ingredient in many cosmetic preparations

    HEALTHY MILK ALTERNATIVES

    Switching up smoothie ingredients is as easy as putting milk in your cereal. 

    My milk preference is unsweetened vanilla almond or coconut milk. 

    Here are other gluten-free and vegan milk alternatives you can use:

    • vanilla oak milk or plain oak milk 
    • coconut milk
    • flax milk made from flax seeds
