6 green Smoothies that will make your skin glow

Skin problems are often a sign of deeper-seated problems. Above all, an acid-rich diet (meat, dairy products, sugar) brings your acid-base balance out of balance. The result is often that waste products accumulate in the body and cause a pale complexion and impurities on the skin. Green smoothies can help against these deposits. They contain valuable building blocks such as vitamin E, vitamin A, zinc, protein, magnesium or iron. These help inflammations to heal faster, provide a fresh and radiant complexion and help the skin to regenerate faster.

Here you will find 6 green smoothie inspirations from the categories detox, collagen boost and antioxidants to make your skin glow.

All recipes are for the amount of two portions and are ideal as a snack or as a substitute for your breakfast in the morning.

(1/3) Detox Smoothies

An acidic diet (sugar, dairy products, gluten-containing products, meat) can have a negative effect on the skin and impurities will form on your skin more quickly.

These foods in your smoothie help your body to detoxify:
Fruits such as kiwis, berries, bananas, apples, avocado, grapefruit are optimal vitamin containing foods with a high water content and are therefore ideal for your detox drink. Green vegetables, such as rocket, chard, celery, cabbage, spinach are usually bitter and contain chlorophyll, which has antibacterial, antioxidant and anticarcinogenic effects. These help to cleanse the intestines and remove harmful substances from our body. To cover the Omega 3 – acid content, oilseeds, nuts or high quality oils (e.g. coconut oil or walnut oil) can be added to every smoothie in a small amount.

(2/3) Collagen Smoothies

Collagen is an important component of skin, bones, tendons, teeth and blood vessels, giving them strength and firmness. It also gives strength to the connective tissue. Over the years, the production of new fibers is reduced, which means that our body breaks down more and more collagen. As a result, the skin becomes flabbier and wrinkles form.

The best green vegetables to stimulate collagen production are: Kale leaves, kale, broccoli, chard and spinach. They not only give you a high vitamin C boost, but are also rich in chlorophyll. Chlorophyll helps the cells to produce more procollagen (precursor of collagen). These green vegetables also contain antioxidants that protect against free radicals and counteract aging.

These green smoothie recipes help cleanse and detoxify your body and will make your skin glow.

Ingredients Variant 3

  • 1 apple
  • 1 orange
  • 5 leaves kale
  • 5 broccoli florets
  • some baby spinach
  • 80 ml whey

Instructions

1. Wash apple, orange, cabbage, broccoli and spinach thoroughly. Core the apple and peel the orange.
2. Put all ingredients in a blender and mix thoroughly. Divide the Mixture into 2 glasses.

Effects

This smoothie helps to boost your collagen production and reduce wrinkles, keeping your skin firm. Oranges are high in vitamin A, which reduces the signs of aging. Broccoli and spinach contain vitamin C, K, A and B9, as well as important fiber, and broccoli is also a leader in collagen production and is believed to help prevent diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and heart disease.

Kale promotes cell formation and protects the skin due to its high vitamin A content. The proportion of spinach ensures a good balance of vitamins and minerals, which have a positive effect on the skin.

Ingredients Variant 4

  • 50 g strawberries
  • ¼ avocado
  • some baby spinach
  • 4 leaves kale
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds
  • 200 ml almond or oat milk
  • 2 tablespoons vegan collagen powder
  • optional: honey or stevia to sweeten

Instructions

1. Wash berries, spinach and kale thoroughly. Peel the banana, cut the avocado in half, remove the seeds and peel.
2. Put all ingredients except the milk in a blender. Add the almond milk in 30 second steps and mix thoroughly. Divide the mixture into 2 glasses.

Effects

These foods in your smoothie will naturally boost the production of collagen. Strawberries contain a lot of lycopene, which has an antioxidant effect. This helps maintain collagen levels and fights off negative environmental influences on the skin. The avocado also has an antioxidant effect due to its vitamin E content and also prevents the breakdown of collagen due to the omega-3 fatty acids it contains. Chia seeds have similar effects to avocado. Almond or oat milk not only have health-promoting properties, but also provide the skin with good vitamins that prevent wrinkles.

With a plant-based diet it can be difficult to find the right amount of collagen. Therefore we have found a collagen powder that is vegan and has the necessary ingredients to speed up collagen production. This collagen powder is optional and can be added to all smoothies.

(3/3) Antioxidants Smoothies

Antioxidants are chemical substances found in various foods that protect the body’s cells from oxidative stress. Free radicals are oxygen or nitrogen compounds. They can be created in your body through various metabolic processes. Free radicals can be produced not only by endogenous factors, but also by exogenous influence. Accordingly, they are also formed by external influences. These include cigarette and alcohol consumption, air pollution, UV radiation, stress, lack of sleep or simply an unhealthy diet. Free radicals have a negative effect on our skin by destroying our cell structure and forming flabby skin, wrinkles and pigment spots.

Antioxidants in your diet are found in fresh fruit, vegetables and vegetable oils. The most important antioxidants in food include vitamin C, vitamin E and secondary plant substances (e.g. carotenoids).

Ingredients Variant 5

  • 1 apple
  • 1 orange or 200 ml fresh orange juice
  • ¼ broccoli
  • 4 leaves kale
  • ¼ savoy cabbage
  • some baby spinach
  • 5 cashew nuts

Instructions

1. Thoroughly wash the apple, broccoli, savoy cabbage, spinach and kale. Core the apple and either press or peel and chop the orange.
2. Put all ingredients except the orange juice in a blender. Add the orange juice in 30 second steps and mix thoroughly. Divide the mixture into 2 glasses.

Effects

This smoothie provides you with a lot of antioxidants for significantly firmer skin. Apples, oranges, and especially broccoli and spinach provide enough important vitamins to protect against premature aging and help maintain the elasticity and tone of the skin. Kale promotes the growth of body tissue and savoy cabbage is good for our immune system and keeps us visually young with the provitamin A it contains. Cashew nuts beautify the skin by having anti-inflammatory effects due to the zinc they contain and prevent skin impurities and blackheads.

The combination of banana and mango is not only super delicious, but also has antioxidant effects that protect against skin aging. Mangoes also provide beta-carotene, which keeps your skin and hair fresh. Wild herbs help to detoxify the body and ginger stimulates the metabolism and has anti-inflammatory effects. Almonds also have antioxidant effects, strengthen the moisture content of your skin and also protect against skin damage caused by environmental influences.
