4 Anti-Aging, Dairy-Free, and Healthy Skin Smoothies

These amazing dairy-free, healthy skin smoothie recipes were shared with me by a friend at Collagen MD. I’ve been using their Advanced Connective Tissue Formula for a while now, and loved having these easy, fruity, tasty recipes to enjoy. Note that this is NOT a sponsored post, I just wanted to share some fun, refreshing delights that I’m sipping!

4 Dairy-Free, Anti-Aging, Healthy Skin Smoothie Recipes

Beyond the Advanced Connective Tissue supplement (a powder that adds thickness, but blends in seamlessly), these healthy skin smoothies contain some other great anti-aging “superfoods”:

Cherry Juice – Cherries have been labeled as top anti-inflammatories and rich in beta-carotene (a wonderful helper for those skin cells). Cherry juice is reportedly a good source of melatonin to aid in quality sleep, allowing time to rejuvenate and keep dark circles at bay.

Pomegranate – Filled with Vitamin C and other free radical fighters, pomegranate juice may help to prevent wrinkles by exerting its antioxidant powers and preserving collagen.

Orange – It may be old school, but this beta-carotene and Vitamin C filled fruit is still tops in nutrition, and studies are showing it to be a standout not only for fighting free radicals, but also for maintaining strong bones!

Mango – Like it’s brilliantly hued cousin, the mango is rich in antioxidants and even boasts some anti-inflammatory properties.

Raspberries – Berries of all types are lower in sugar than many fruits, but are key providers of anti-aging compounds that aid from the inside out. We often think of blueberries and cranberries as the superfoods, but summer raspberries should not be forgotten!

Chocolate – Cocoa is being hailed for its disease-fighting flavonoids, but its antioxidants are also skin softeners that help to repair damaged skin.

Blueberries, green tea, guava, and grapes are other antioxidant-rich foods to consider for boosting and adding flavor to healthy skin smoothies.

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Put the powder, orange juice, mango, milk beverage or yogurt, and Omega-3s in your blender. Blend until smooth and creamy, about 1 minute.
  2. Taste test and blend in the stevia to sweeten and brighten the flavors, if desired.
  3. For a thicker and cooler smoothie, blend in some crushed ice.
  4. Pour the thick smoothie into a glass and garnish with a dash of nutmeg.
Notes
*In order to get the full benefits of the Advanced Connective Tissue Formula, you are supposed to consume it without any added protein. The coconut milk beverage that I use contains 0 grams of protein.

**For egg-free, Coromega has a new Be Bright Superfood Oil Blend that is equally tasty and has a good dose of essential fatty acids.
