Today I’m sharing one of the best kept beauty secrets: smoothies. While juicing gets all the headlines, smoothies are my preference. They have fiber to keep you full and almost everyone can make a smoothie. You don’t need a separate piece of equipment in your kitchen to pull this off. This smoothie is one of my beauty boosters that focuses on skin health. Lots of the ingredients have important vitamin C while the spinach also provides iron to help your skin rejuvenate and glow. If you really want to make this smoothie work for you, add a shot of Sibu Sea Buckthorn! 

I originally shared this recipe over on Delicious Knowledge with Alex, a fellow JMU grad and dietitian, who is getting married very soon! Congrats Alex!
