Here at the Raw Beauty studio, not only have we been busy creating beautiful products for your skin to enjoy topically – such as our Inner Beauty Mist and Essentially Citrus Bliss Mist – but we have also been creating our signature RAW Beauty Smoothie; which has been created to support you in taking care of your body from the inside, and assisting you in maintaining your inner and outer beauty.
We have formulated a nutrient rich meal-in-a-glass for you to enjoy for breakfast, or an afternoon snack, and it’s loaded with ingredients that are full of antioxidants, like raw cacao and mixed berries – which are beyond nourishing for your gorgeous skin. It also works well as a post workout meal, due to the amount of protein and good fats included in this drool-worthy creation, and of course the hydration and electrolytes that your body will receive from the coconut water.
Side note: we don’t recommend that you consume your RAW Beauty Smoothie at night time, as the cacao will more than likely keep you up, and we all know how important our sleep is as RAW Beauties.
1 c fresh coconut water (from a young coconut)
coconut flesh/meat (as much as you like)
½ small avocado
1 tsp chia seeds
1 tsp raw cacao powder (more if you like it really chocolaty)
3 kale leaves
1 c baby spinach
1 tbsp nut butter (of choice – we like, peanut and almond)
1/2 c frozen mixed berries
How to create:
Place all ingredients in a high-speed blender and enjoy!
If you don’t have access to a high-speed blender, then we recommend cutting the ingredients up really fine first, for a more smoother consistency.
Time saver Tip: If having for breakfast – place the coconut flesh, chia seeds, cacao powder, kale, baby spinach and nut butter in a glass jar in the fridge overnight. All you then need to do in the morning is add the ingredients to your blender, including the coconut water, ½ small avocado and frozen mixed berries, and you’re good to go!
Time saver Tip: If a post workout meal, or afternoon meal – simply make in the morning and keep in a BPA free water bottle, or even better, glass jar and store in the fridge. We do advise that you consume this on the same day it was made, as then you’ll gain the full benefits from all the wonderful nutrients.
I hope you enjoy this SUPER amazing RAW Beauty Smoothie as much as we do. How could you not knowing that it’s designed to aid your inner and outer beauty, right?!
