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

Give thanks this Earth Day with the farm-fresh, in-season ingredients featured in this bright and bold #beautyfood smoothie! The incredible color here comes from beets, which are high-level detoxifyers, and also provide an instant energy boost, making this a smart choice for your morning smoothie. Combined with luscious mango, you’ll enjoy the digestive benefits of pectin and a flavor that’s uniquely fresh and sweetly satisfying! Used as a masque, beets fight wrinkles and reduce hyperpigmentation, while mango hydrates and moisturizes. Time to shine!

  • 1 mango | builds collagen + hydrates

  • 1 small beet | detoxifies + fights wrinkles

  • 1 Tbsp raw coconut nectar | natural, low-glycemic sweetening
