Glowing Skin Coconut Water Smoothie Recipe

Are you ready for one of the most refreshing smoothies ever?! I swear to you I would just about rather sip a coconut water smoothie than anything else on a hot summer day.

Coconut Water Smoothie with Mango and Strawberry | HelloNatural.coWe’ve talked about the best vitamins for beautiful skin before, but here’s a quick refresher in case you missed it. As we age our skin loses its elasticity, it can start to look dull, those darn age spots might start popping up. Number one  important thing to do is stay hydrated. Here are some awesome beauty smoothie ingredients to keep your skin happy and glowing.

Coconut water

This smoothie uses a coconut water base that is not only rehydrating, but a good source of magnesium and potassium, as well as smaller amounts of Vitamins C and B. It’s an excellent way to replenish electrolytes.

Strawberries are one of the best sources of Vitamin C, which is a powerful antioxidant, and is needed for our bodies to make collagen.

Carrots

Our bodies convert the beta carotene found in carrots into retinoids that are powerful anti-aging antioxidants.

Mango

Mangoes are loaded with vitamins! Just 1 cup of diced mangoes supplies 76% DV of Vitamin C, 25% DV Vitamin A, plus smaller amounts of Vitamin E, K, and B (thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, B6, folate, and pantothenic acid).

Oranges

Oranges are high in Vitamin C, but also contain flavonoids which help with cell growth, plus they add natural sweetness.

    What a beautiful, vibrant color! This sounds delicious – I don’t think I’ve ever had a smoothie with carrot in it before, but it sounds delicious (plus, good for the eyes!). Can’t wait to try this :)
