Gorgeous greens…

for gorgeous, glowing skin.

It’s no secret that I am a big fan of green drinks.

gorgeous greens

If you follow my Instagram stories, I’m posting them all the time.

A daily green drink is a great way to get more fresh, raw veggies into your diet with minimal effort.

I love playing around with the ingredients, and the combo I’ve been enjoying lately not only tastes refreshing, it has some amazing benefits for your skin.

Here’s what I used:

Arugula is one of my favorite leafy greens…I love the bright, peppery taste.  It’s also a good source of vitamins A, C and K and carotenoids, all of which are awesome for your skin.  The sulphur compounds found in arugula and other cruciferous veggies may offer some protection against cancer.

Cucumber with the skin on is a good source of silica, which helps to firm the skin and strengthen nails and hair.  I buy organic cucumbers whenever possible.

Celery contains vitamin K and many antioxidants.  It is excellent for your digestion as well.  I don’t like to eat raw celery on its own but love it in drinks like this.

Ginger is a potent anti-inflammatory, which makes it great for the skin and your overall health. Ginger is also great for digestion.

Lemon is a great source of vitamin C and other antioxidants.  Vitamin C is known to brighten the skin.  It also supports the production of new collagen, which keeps your skin firm.

Apple adds a little bit of sweetness and rounds out the flavor of this drink.  Apples also contain vitamin C and many antioxidants, and are a great source of soluble fiber.

Speaking of fiber, I do not juice all this produce.  I blend everything with some water so all the fiber is retained.  You definitely need a high powered blender…I love my Vitamix.

And here’s how I made it.  This makes two generous servings.  Share with a friend or save some for later in the day.

happy, healthy and hot gorgeous green drink

generous handful arugula

one half cucumber, cut into chunks

two stalks of celery, cut into chunks

one inch chunk of ginger, peeled

one whole lemon, outer yellow peel removed, cut into chunks

one half apple, cut into chunks

Put everything in a high powered blender, and add water to at least half way.  Blend on high until smooth.  Enjoy!

Can this gorgeous green drink help you feel happy, healthy and hot?  Of course it can!

You’ll be happy drinking something delicious made from such healthy ingredients.  Consuming drinks like this on a regular basis supports gorgeous, glowing skin and a fit body…very hot!
