You are what you eat. We often hear this saying passed around either as a joke, a piece of advice, or a reminder, among others. But have we stopped to wonder how true this saying is?
When it comes to our skin, what we eat affects our skin's health. This sentiment wasn't prevalent back in the day (a few decades ago) -- that diet and skin condition have a relationship. But several studies in recent years have concluded that yes, diet impacts our skin!
As the largest organ of our body, our skin benefits from the nutrition we get from the food we eat. This statement is also true the other way around. When we eat food that is unhealthy or those that are known to cause specific skin problems, our skin may negatively be impacted. With that, we really, and I mean really need to watch what we eat.
Knowing this fact about diet and skin won't immediately propel us to change our dietary habits. I know it can be hard to change the norm we are so comfortable with -- especially if that norm consists of little to no fruits or vegetables. But taking the first step will go a long way! And I have just the right delicious drink for you to get moving towards a healthier lifestyle for healthier skin.Today I am sharing an easy 5-minute pink smoothie for gorgeous skin. Read on to learn how to make it, and your skin will thank you for it.
Why Is This Smoothie So Good For Your Skin?
Having a smoothie for breakfast is an easy way to nourish your body and your skin. Smoothies are generally a good idea if you are trying to incorporate more fruits or veggies into your diet but are not used to their taste.
Just remember to hold it on that sugar! Luckily, our recipe for today will not be sweetened through artificial means.On that note, let's take a look at what makes this pink smoothie so good for our skin.
Combine all these beneficial and nutrition-packed ingredients, and you get a creamy pink smoothie with frozen raspberries and coconut milk!
Do I need to say more? The recipe, of course! Read on below.
How To Make The Pink Smoothie For Gorgeous Skin
Pink Goddess Smoothie
- 2 big smoothies
- 5 min.
- 1.5 cup coconut milk (you can replace with oat, rice or soy milk)
- 1 cup of water
- 2 cups frozen raspberries
- 1 big banana, sliced and frozen
- 1 tbsp ground flax seed
- Optional: shredded coconut flakes to garnish it; dates to make it sweeter
How To Prepare And Use It?
- Add all of the ingredients to the blender.
- Blend on high until smooth.
- Adjust the amount of coconut milk accordingly to your taste. If it's too thick, you can also add more water.
Note: To end off with a creamy and silky smoothie, you will need a strong, powerful blender.
Before we wrap this up, I just want to remind everyone who took the time to read this about one thing. This recipe is for a pink smoothie for gorgeous skin, but it isn't a miracle potion.
If you don't exercise regularly, eat a healthy skin diet, and take proper care of your skin, you'll never have a glowing complexion. Simply think of this recipe as either: an additional boost for your current healthy and effective routine; or, as a stepping stone towards a healthy skin diet.
I am looking forward to hearing how you liked the pink smoothie for gorgeous skin!
