Green Glow Smoothie


This Green Glow Smoothie for acne packs over 20 grams of protein and 16 grams of fiber to start your morning off right and clear your skin from within.

Green Glow Smoothie Ingredients

  • Chia Seeds: An excellent source of fiber, providing a whopping 10g of fiber per ounce. Fiber helps to stabilize blood sugar, which is key to maintaining acne-free skin. They’re also rich in antioxidants and omega-3. (12)
  • Hemp Seeds: An excellent source of easy-to-digest plant protein. They also provide fiber and omega-3s, and an array of phytonutrients. (3, 4)
  • Kale: Belongs to the cruciferous family which is known to reduce inflammation. A study published in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics showed that a higher intake of cruciferous vegetables resulted in a 25% reduction in markers of inflammation among 1,005 women. (5)
  • Banana: Bananas provide fiber and antioxidants that fight free radicals. (67)
