Beauty Recipe: Raspberry Chia Smoothie (and DIY Mask) for Clear Skin

Posted by on

Created to beautify your skin from the inside out, blend this clear skin remedy + use the leftovers as a DIY face mask!

Raspberries are loaded with vitamin C, antioxidants, and other important nutrients such as iron, calcium, and fiber.

Apples contain the soluble fiber pectin, which cleanses the blood, digestive, and intestinal tracts while supporting the body with calcium, iron, vitamin A, and potassium.

We’ve added chia seeds for their protein and hydration, as well as exfoliating topical benefits.

Yield: 1 serving (8 ounces)
Time: 5 minutes

Smoothie Ingredients:
1 cup unsweetened almond milk | beauty fats + vitamin E
1 small organic apple, chopped | anti-aging vitamins + keeps skin clear
½ cup fresh raspberries | antioxidants + vitamin C for age-fighting
2 tablespoons chia seeds, soaked | zinc for firming + fights wrinkles
Juice of ¼ lemon | brightening + detoxifies
1-2 tablespoons raw coconut nectar, to taste* | low glycemic, mineral-rich sweetener
4 spring water ice cubes | hydration + minerals

*can be substituted with sugar.

  2. Enjoy your morning treat and use the leftovers as a face mask! Leave on for 8 minutes and rinse off thoroughly.
