A Green Smoothie for Clear Skin, More Energy & Muscle Repair

Recently I’ve been on a spirulina & chlorella kick because they’re both so great for having healthy, clear skin, healing acne and repairing tissues after a workout. A few weeks ago when I was making spirulina face masks I started researching how spirulina impacts skin health. There were so many testimonials from people who raved about how taking spirulina for just 4 weeks healed their chronic acne. What we put in our bodies has a big effect on our skin, our energy levels and how fast our body can repair itself.

Ingredients:

  • 4 stalks of celery
  • 1 field cucumber
  • 2 cups pineapple
  • 1 tbsp. spirulina
  • 1 tbsp. chlorella
  • 2 thumb print sizes of burdock root
  • 1 cup tightly packed kale
  • 1 thumb print size of ginger
  • 1 lemon, de-seeded
  • 1 cup cilantro
  • 2-3 cups coconut water

Instructions: Chop ingredients and put in your Vitamix. Blend on high for 15-30 seconds and serve. If you need to add more liquid, you can.
