Spinach and Blueberry Smoothie

Updated: May 6



Here's a super healthy smoothie to kickstart your day!

Blueberries are the number one Antioxidant.

They contain antioxidants called carotenoids, flavonoids and other antioxidant compounds including vitamins A, C and E.

The little blueberry also contains phosphorus, selenium and zinc - it really is a powerhouse of a berry!

And spinach, well where do I start?

Spinach is high in niacin and zinc, as well as protein, fiber, vitamins A, C, E and K, thiamin, vitamin B6, folate, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, copper, and manganese.

Both of these combined double up on your Vitamin A, which is important at replenishing your skin cells and rebuilding collagen for a healthy looking complexion.

In fact, it's the exact opposite of the effect that sugar can have on your skin, breaking down collagen and elastin creating premature ageing which you can read about in my blog post Does Sugar Make You Look Older?

So with all that goodness in a glass, it's a powerful way to start the day feeling good and end the day looking good.

So, go get guzzling!!

1 Handful of blueberries

1/2 an apple

5 Ice cubes
