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!
