Take a few extra moments to savor your morning #beautyfood smoothie! How? By creating a frozen treat #beautyfood bowl packed with antioxidant powers. It’s like having skin-loving sorbet for breakfast!
The trick with these fabulous smoothie bowls is getting the right consistency. It helps to have all the frozen fruit roughly the same size, so they blend well. So here, slicing your strawberries before freezing will keep the texture even. Though a high-speed blender works well, if possible use a food processor for a smooth consistency. If you find the mixture a bit too soft, as can happen when fruit is extra juicy, just add some more frozen fruit.
Now, back to the good stuff: Vitamin-rich berries are the rock stars of anti-aging. They have among the highest amount of age fighting antioxidants of any foods. This combination of goji, strawberry, blueberry, and blackberry will make your skin glow, while protecting it from environmental stresses and helping to delay the visible signs of aging.
We may have hidden a good dose of nutritious spinach in amongst all the berries here, but you’ll never taste it! This delish bowl has added benefits of vitamins B2, B6, E, A, copper, magnesium, iron, and zinc, so go ahead and enjoy, knowing you’re nourishing your skin with every bite.
