Choc-Hazelnut Avo Cream Smoothie For Glowing Skin

17 June 2015

Smoothies are everywhere! In the mall, at fast-food restaurants, in coffee shops. But for the most part, those smoothies might be better termed fruit milkshakes. Stuffed with sugar, frozen yogurt, even ice cream, they do more harm than good. But made properly, smoothies condense large amounts of fruits and vegetables into one compact and very tasty drink. Fruit and vegetables are most nutrient-dense at peak season. So when putting together a smoothie, try to use the freshest ingredients from your local farmers’ market. When something is in season, it packs the healthiest punch. This smoothie recipe is packed with healthy fats that will keep your skin soft and supple, giving you a gorgeous radiant glow!
