Anti-Aging Smoothie Recipes For Better Skin And Health/Nutri Bullet Review

Anti- Aging smoothie recipes that help your skin and your overall health are quick and easy to make.

The fastest way to your seven a day is by starting the day off with a nutrient, vitamin and mineral packed smoothie.

I definitely recommend using a blender such as Nutri Bullet Smoothie Maker as unlike a juicer you are not wasting the fibre and the pulp and throwing out precious nutrition!

The smoothie choices are endless – blend up a concoction of your mood or aim.   I love the skin enhancing and immumity boosting benefits of blueberries, strawberries, hemp protein powder, a dash of Maca Powder and sometimes I will add in a spoonful of olive or avocado oil,  coconut is good too.

What you eat and drink makes a big difference to your general health and wellbeing but it also show on your skin.

It is so important to hydrate so that our cells and organs can function,  hydration allows joints to be lubricated, it helps remove wastage and gets the nutrients around our body.  Water not just quenches your thirst but it plays a very vital unseen role to help your body work at it’s optimum.

Our skin appears wrinkled if we are not drinking enough because as we age we simply do not retain the water in our tissues.  You have heard it before but you must drink at least eight glasses of water a day to keep hydrated, healthy and to reduce dry crepy skin.


The Best Blender For Ease of Use.

With the introduction of the Nutri Bullet into my kitchen my healthy habit has become so easy.  In the past I really detested all the blade cleaning and mess that came with other juicers or extractors but this little machine has really made it all so simple.  Instead of the once in a while smoothie – I am now blasting a healthy concoction every morning and sometimes in the evening too!

This one is the one I personally have and as mentioned previously the reason I love it so much  (apart from the obvious reason supplying a blast of dense nutrients quickly) is that it is SO EASY TO CLEAN!   The blade has no tiny nooks and crannies just a nice piece with a wide blades meaning all you have to do is run it under the tap.  This is important as any model I had in the past usually had a few fiddly accessories and put me off the bother of using it.  Nutri bullet is a whole food blender so you are not just getting the juice but all the other nutrients too. This particular model is the original and best selling model.  It comes with 3 jug sizes and a recipe book,  currently on Amazon (click image).  Here’s to a healthy new you!


Ingredients that are good for your skin, health and hormones!

Most smoothies are going to benefit all of the above but you can add in extra pinches of maca to help with hormone balance,  herbs for healing, check out which herbs you can use to benefit your own personal needs here  Herbs for Health & Wellbeing.

Another idea is to add a dash of cold pressed avocado oil or extra virgin cold pressed coconut oil.  Avocado oil has so many health advantages including helping with absorption of nutrients so is perfect for adding to a nutritious smoothie.  One study showed that adding avocado oil to a meal with carrots, spinach and romaine helped to increase dramatically the anti oxidants present in these foods.  Avocado is beneficial to the health of the heart, eyes, gums, it is useful in treating arthritis and inflammatory diseases.  resource

Coconut oil also has a load of reasons for adding a scoop to your smoothie.  It is an aid for addressing blood sugar and diabetes, fights against Alzheimer’s, aids liver health, boosts energy, good for hearth health, digestion and more! Resource
