Sour Apple Smoothie
Posted By: admin Posted In: nutrition Date Posted: July 19th, 2012 Comments: 3

Ingredients:

1 Granny Smith green apple (cored and chopped)

1 banana

1 cup orange juice

1 tablespoon of flaxseed oil

Prep:

Blend all the products together until smooth and enjoy!

Benefits:

Apples contain a high level of glycolic acid and help minimize scarring from acne, which reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The glycolic acid also stops oils and bacteria from getting trapped under the skin’s surface. Glycolic acid is found in a numerous amount of skin care products so why not try ingesting it through a smoothie?

Bananas are rich in potassium and Vitamin C and are known to improve digestion, allowing the body to break down food and rid the body of stomach problems. Bananas will improve skin texture and help in making your skin pimple-free! Raw almond butter contains a high level of Vitamin E. Vitamin E is known to repair skin from sun damage, scarring from acne, and also will aid in minimizing fine lines and wrinkles. The antioxidants in almonds also help fight off free radicals, fighting bacteria that cause acne.

Orange juice is packed with Vitamin C and will improve skin color and texture, leaving your skin fresh and glowing! Flaxseed oil is rich in omega-3 fatty acids and will help regulate the body’s oil production, in turn reducing oils that surface on the skin which in turn reduce clogged pores and breakouts.

    Do they sell them at any known corporation? Such as a fast food joint?

    Can you get flaxseed oil in supermarket or could you use something instead?

    That looks absolutely delicious. Was just about to put away my smoothie maker- got it out full of good intentions a few weeks ago but I’ve not used it. Will be using it now. It’s the colour of that green in the picture (as well as all the nutrients of course!) – looks amazing 🙂
