This Superfood Smoothie is full of nutritious ingredients that will have you glowing from the inside out!
Daylight hours are decreasing here in the U.S. Midwest and the humidity and temps are starting to drop. That means less time outdoors in the sunshine and saying hello to dry, dull skin.
My skin gets so dry each winter that a bucket of lotion a day wouldn’t fix the problem. This year, I’m tackling the problem from the inside out – making sure I stay hydrated and eating and drinking plenty of healthy fruits and veggies.
Let’s get that perfect glow together starting with this healthy and delicious Superfood Smoothie!
Let’s take a closer look at what’s inside this powerful sip.

It’s important to lead a healthy lifestyle in addition to fueling yourself with superfoods. As much as I’d like to claim it, this superfood smoothie is not a miracle worker.
Keep your body active, minimize alcohol and processed foods, use natural skin care products, steer clear of sugary treats, eat organic when possible, manage your stress (yoga is a favorite of mine!), exfoliate your skin (I’ve been dry brushing lately and it’s fabulous!), get plenty of sleep, and eat a whole foods plant based diet as much as possible.
Starting your morning with this dairy free powerhouse of a smoothie will energize you and set the tone for the rest of your day. It can be made in just about 5 minutes and is easily portable.
