My Miracle De-Bloating and Skin-Clearing Smoothie

New year, new me – right guys? Now that I’m no longer preggers and 2018 is here, I’m ready to get back into my workout groove and get into tip top shape. I feel very grateful that Honor and I are both doing so well, and I have so much motivation to come back feeling stronger and healthier than ever this year. I know not everyone’s just recently given birth like me, but I know for a fact that everyone loves a good tip on how to clear up skin and reduce bloating. Drinking your nutrients in a smoothie has always been something I love doing, and I’m relishing all the benefits now more than ever.

I’ve learned over the years that eating lots of leafy greens and vegetables really helps clear up your skin, and makes you feel much more energized. Dark, leafy greens like kale, spinach and chard are all loaded with fiber and antioxidants, which help to repair and renew your skin from the inside out. The best part is that when you blend these greens with fruit you can’t even taste them, so smoothies are a great way to get your veggies in if you’re not big on them. I’ve also talked a lot on my blog about the benefits of avocado, which has always been a secret weapon of mine when it comes to improving the look of your skin – they’re rich in fatty acids and antioxidants, which nourish your skin and hair, and give you a natural glow. Certain fruits like banana and pineapple have wonderful debloating properties, making my go-to green smoothie the ultimate slimming and skin-clearing drink. It’s also packed full of protein and healthy calories, making it the perfect breakfast. Read below for the recipe!

Skin-Clearing, De-Bloating Smoothie
Serves 2

2 cups packed fresh kale – high in fiber and water, to promote healthy digestion
2 cups packed fresh spinach – contains vitamins C, E, and A, which are antioxidants that help clear skin
1 large banana (2 if you want it sweeter) – rich in potassium, for a natural boost of energy
1 cup frozen pineapple – contains folate (B9), important for normal cell function and tissue growth
1/2 avocado – healthy fats help your body to better absorb other vitamins and minerals
2 tbsp almond or peanut butter – full of vitamin E and B12 to nourish your skin
1 scoop Spirulina – improves stomach lining and repairs damage from inflammation (which causes bloating)
2 scoops of collagen powder – improves skin elasticity and minimizes the appearance of fine lines and
6 ice cubes (adjust up or down for your preferred consistency) – hydration is always key!
1 cup milk of choice

Combine all ingredients and blend until smooth. Enjoy immediately!

    Hi Louis, thanks for sharing this recipe. I’ll def try it. One question, do you usually drink this as a replacement for breakfast? What other time of the day you recommend to drink it ? Thanks

    Hi Louise! I had never tried a fruit and vegetable smoothie before so I was a bit sceptic… I followed your recipe (more or less as I couldn’t find kale and spirulina) and I loved it!!! It actually tastes so good! Thank you for sharing:) xx from Italy

  • #ad Ok so this one’s for my Mum-bosses and Girl-bosses out there. Real talk. Do you guys ever feel like you’re spinning a gazillion plates in the air at once?! I have got the busiest week of all time ahead – not that I’m complaining – but I feel like I need to be more organized than ever nowadays, running a business and being a mummy at the same time. And when it’s that time of the month, not only do I cry at the drop of a hat (anyone else get teary watching a cute commercial?) but it used to be easy to let that slow me down. So, I’ve partnered with @Always_brand, (I love their Infinity pad which has a thin and flexible design so you’ll forget you’re wearing a pad), to have an open dialogue with you guys about how women can navigate through it all. What are some of the tricks, tips, products and apps you use to stay on track? #AlwaysAmbassador #ShapeMyInfinity
  • Quick lunch at the pub before the wedding!!

  • #ad Since having Honor, I feel like I’ve grown even closer to you guys. My followers have got to be the most loyal, kind and hilarious group of women ever. Nothing is off limits, and we talk about all sorts! So I’m getting personal today, and opening up about one thing that happens after birth that none of my mum friends, nor I, knew about. Pads! Yep…I’m going there. If there’s one thing you don’t want to worry about as an exhausted new mom it’s your period. So I’m partnering with @Always_brand to talk about my personal story, and the ways in which products like Always Infinity pads (with zero feel protection) can solve your new mum, after-birth worries, (and help you go about your crazy days).
