The Nutty Banana Smoothie
The Nutty Banana Smoothie is packed full of spinach, avocado, banana, pumpkin seeds, walnuts & almond milk. Making this the drink of the gods for your skin & hair.
Serve it in a wine glass, get someone to stand by your side and instruct them to fan you whilst you sip away. No doubt you will feel like a goddess!
To make this green elixir:
Throw a banana, half an avocado, 2 big handfuls of spinach, a handful of walnut halves and a small handful of pumpkin seeds into a powerful blender.
Add in 2 cups of almond milk and get blending!
If the smoothie comes out too thick just add in some extra almond milk.
This smoothie ends up a beautiful glossy green colour.
Sadly it doesn’t make for a good pouring picture!
This isn’t the way to entice someone to drink a Nutty Banana Smoothie!
Maybe telling them how highly nutritious it is will?
Here’s just a few of the magnificent nutrients in the ingredients:
Spinach – Iron, Vit A, Vit C & Vit E. Avocado – Essential fatty acids, Vit E & Vit B. Banana – Vit B. Pumpkin Seeds – Zinc & essential fatty acids. Walnuts – Vit B & essential fatty acids
Gorgeous Glowing Skin
Skin damage/aging – as we age we lose the flexibility of collagen & elastin in the skin. This is when things start to drop & wrinkles appear. Dam it! However antioxidants are our knights in shining armour! Antioxidants Vit A,C & E can limit this damage, hurrah!
Dry skin – without enough essential fatty acids skin will dry out quickly and lose its plumpness. So a glug of a nutty banana will go a long way to keep skin soft.
Beautiful Glossy Locks
Vit B can help oily hair
Zinc can boost hair growth
Iron & Vit B can aid hair loss
