If you’ve had an indulgent holiday season and it has affected your skin — look no further than the pantry to make a truly cleansing green drink that will help flush out toxins from your body and restore radiance to your skin. Here’s why:
This multi-green smoothie recipe not only has spinach and kale, but it also includes detoxifying ingredients like parsley and mint especially.
Cucumber and coconut water will return much-needed moisture to your body, especially if you have been imbibing in alcohol.
A lemon contains 187% of your daily vitamin C requirement plus it helps to ward off inflammation so it’s crucial to include this in a cleansing tonic.
And a scoop of collagen peptide powder revs up your natural collagen production levels to help stave off dull skin.
1½ cups of coconut water
2-3 sprigs of parsley
2 big leaves of kale
1 handful spinach
2-3 sprigs of fresh mint leaves
1 frozen banana
1 small cucumber
1-inch knob of ginger
Juice of 1 lemon
1 tablespoon of coconut oil
1 scoop of Sparkle Collagen with Verisol®
Tip: Put in the coconut water and greens first if you do not have a powerful high-speed blender. Once smooth, pop in the rest of the ingredients and you’ll get a silky green drink.
