This decadent, delicious smoothie is really simple, macro balanced and is a great addition to the beauty routine. The ingredients in this smoothie contain a heap of skin-loving nutrients and of course, we have included a serve of our Collagen Beauty to bring you the skin-loving benefits of bioactive collagen peptides, vitamin C and Zinc.
Avocados are great for skin, as they contain a source of healthy fats including a great source of omega 3 fats, which help with skin barrier function, improving moisture and elasticity. Cacao and blueberries are both superfoods because of their amazing antioxidant properties. Antioxidants are able to neutralise free radicals which we come into contact with every day and can make their way around the body causing damage to cells and fibres like collagen and elastin. Peanut butter contains a great mix of fats and protein and the amino acid profile of peanuts compliments collagen, making this smoothie a complete protein source.
Overall, this smoothie is a balanced meal that feels like a dessert and brings lots of benefits to you and your skin.
