Glowing Skin Smoothie
What's great about it
A nourishing, skin-boosting, antioxidant-rich breakfast smoothie from my award-winning cookbook Earth To Table. A delicious blend of berries, protein and superfoods, all essential for healthy skin. This smoothie is high in Vitamin C and collagen, which support absorption. The addition of Healthy Chef Marine Collagen and Healthy Chef Vanilla Protein to help boost collagen and hydration in the skin and help cells repair, vitamin E to protect the skin from wrinkles and fight free radicals and healthy fats to nourish + hydrate the skin. It takes just 1 minute to prepare and is full of collagen boosting protein, vitamin C to help aid in collagen production, and healthy fats and omega-3s to maintain glowing skin.

Notes and Inspiration
You can adjust the consistency by adding more or less of the liquid component depending on your desired thickness. We love to add frozen banana to make it extra creamy and delicious. You can also use pumpkin seed milk or drinking coconut milk in place of almond milk for essential fats and minerals.
The addition of tahini and cinnamon helps boost minerals and keeps blood sugars stable.
