Beauty Smoothie! (Dairy-Free, Sugar-Free & Vegan)

 

Want to get  your GLOW on?! I know it is not pumpkin season, but fortunately you can enjoy pumpkins year round and they will do wonders for your skin. Pumpkin is an outstanding source of Vitamin A, fiber and iron. Chard is jam packed with Vitamins A, C, E, K, magnesium and potassium. Vitamin A promotes skin cell turnover which helps bring new skin cells to the surface. It is a fabulous antioxidant that boosts your immune system and promotes skin health.

Add to Vitamix or Blender:

1 17 oz. carton of Pacific Natural Foods Organic Pumpkin Puree (I found it at my local Whole Foods)

3 cups homemade almond milk (or unsweetened almond milk)

3-4 large red chard leaves (kale also works great)

3/4 cup chia seeds

1/2 cup coconut nectar

Blend on high for several minutes. Pour into glasses and enjoy!

Makes 6 servings.

 

Please note you are welcome to omit the coconut nectar if you want no added sugar/sweetner at all, but my kids drink this smoothie with me everytime I make it so a touch of sweetness makes it a recipe my whole family will enjoy!

    I have not seen that pumpkin puree, I will have to look for it!  This sounds so good – I love pumpkin!

    • I think it is a new product. I found it near the applesauce. I like it because it doesn’t have BPA like most cans of pumpkin do.

    This sounds like a real winner in the smoothie department!  I love pumpkin and add it to my pumpkin chia “pudding”  in the morning but adding greens to it never occurred to me.  

  6. I found the pumpkin next to the applesauce at Whole Foods. I really like it because it is not in a can or BPA packaging. Hope you enjoy the smoothie. Isn’t pumpkin amazing?!
