MAKE THIS SKIN-LOVING DIY SMOOTHIE, USE THE LEFTOVERS FOR A MASQUE!

The season of detoxing is upon us! Time to rev up and revive our sleepy winter skin with an energizing #beautyfood smoothie inspired by our very own Om Aroma & Co. Pumpkin Renew Serum. This is a fantastic way to gently ease the body out of it’s overnight fasting, and begin your day with an invigorating blend that cleanses, revitalizes, and beautifies. The kale base provides a major dose of vitamins A, C, and K, but don’t worry – you’ll never taste it! The amazing flavor combination of lime and cilantro, blended with the sweetness of the apple make this oh-so-addictive!

Smoothie Ingredients:

  • 1 apple, chopped | pectin + soluble fiber, detoxifies
  • Juice of ½ lime | vitamin C for collagen production, detoxifies
  • 2” piece of fresh ginger, grated | aids digestion + supports clear skin
  • ¼ C raw pumpkin seeds  | vitamin E + zinc for elasticity, essential fats for nutrient absorption
  • 4 stalks kale | essential skin vitamins + copper for collagen production
  • 10 sprigs cilantro | detoxifies + antioxidant support
  • 1 tsp coconut nectar | optional for sweetening, high in minerals
  • ½ C filtered or spring water

Om Beauty Tip: Garnish with additional pumpkin seeds for a tasty crunch, and even more beauty benefits!
