‘Feed Your Skin’ Superfood Juice

Superfood juice 2

The best way to start any day is by Juicing it up! This scrumptious juice is loaded with vitamins A, C and K and will make your morning coffee feel like a wimp! Aside from the insane energy surging through your body, your skin will look younger and more radiant. I’ll have another glass, please!

‘Feed Your Skin’ Superfood Juice 

the ingredients:
4 red kale leaves
4 dinosaur kale leaves
2 celery stalks
1 carrot
2 cucumbers
1 orange
1 lemon
1 apple
1 cup raspberries
1 cup strawberries
1 cup red grapes

the method:
Juice each fruit and vegetable separately and pour the juice into one large mason jar. Give the jar a little shimmy… a little shake. Pop in a straw. Sip. Smile. Repeat.

the nutritional facts:

vitamin A: The carrots in this beverage provide ample amounts of vitamin A in the form of beta-carotene. Consider this precursor to vitamin A your passport to youth; it aids in protecting cells, prevents premature aging and gives your skin a rosy glow.

vitamin C: Often associated with immune system and warding off the common cold – but did you know that your skin has its own unique immune system that needs a little TLC every now and then? It’s true. So while vitamin C helps protect the integrity of the skin, it also triggers collagen production. Collagen is responsible for keeping skin looking plump, elastic , wrinkle-free and wards off signs of aging.

vitamin K: This antioxidant does wonders for the skin. With a healthy intake of vitamin K, you can expect a clearer complexion, improved skin elasticity and a super-fast wound healing response.

    Hi Denise, thank you for stopping by my blog and deciding to follow. I recently moved and in the process pulled out a juicer I bought quite a few years ago. My husband suggested I let it go, but I declined hoping I would get it out and use it more often. I am so glad to come across your superfood juice recipe and am anxious to try it. I’m not a huge kale fan (except for the chips and they quite expensive) so this will be a good opportunity for me to down some painlessly. Thanks! 🙂

    I find the idea of “juicing” labor intensive, so I’d always skipped it. Recently, I discovered an average blender does a great job of smoothing things together. I’m now on board (have to be okay with pulpiness though, which I don’t mind) 🙂 Great recipe here!

      I totally agree! Sometimes the thought of juicing is just so overwhelming that I am willing to pay the $8 for a juice at whole foods haha! What blender do you use – I don’t mind a little pulpiness every now and then 🙂
