Key Beauty Ingredients: Vitamin C: Grapefruit, Strawberry & Papaya
Our eyes need plenty of antioxidants to function optimally. Antioxidants improve and maintain our vision, help us see better in dim or glaring light and also prevent degenerative diseases such as cataracts from beginning to form. Getting your fair share of antioxidants is good for the entire body and will preserve your precious eye sight.
This Tropical Superfruit smoothie is loaded with delicious sources of the powerhouse antioxidant vitamin C. Blend up chunks of grapefruit, strawberries and papaya for a sweet and sour treat, add plenty of ice in the warmer months to hydrate and cool down.
Tropical Superfruit Beauty Smoothie
- 1 cup coconut milk or coconut water*
- 1/3 cup of grapefruit or grapefruit juice
- 1/3 cup frozen strawberries
- 1/3 cup frozen papaya
- handful of spinach
- 1 teaspoon of fresh ground organic orange peel
This recipe serves one smoothie equaling about 2 cups.
Add coconut milk or coconut water, grapefruit or grapefruit juice, frozen strawberries, and frozen papaya into the blender. Toss a handful of spinach into the mixture. Scoop in the fresh ground orange peel. Blend until smooth and enjoy.
*When selecting coconut water choose products with zero added sugar! Sugar comes in sneaky forms on ingredient lists (i.e high fructose corn syrup, fructose, dextrose, evaporated cane juice, lactose, maltose, sucrose, agave nectar…) Coconut water should have only one ingredient if it is the good stuff!0
