I finally purchased a VitaMix blender last week and I am just bursting with excitement to make lots of healthy and filling smoothies this spring and summer. I’ll be sharing them all here on Laurel on Health Food. The following recipe is the first smoothie I made with my new blender. I’ve been drinking it for breakfast every day this week and feel so energized on my commute.
I named it the “Glowing Skin Green Smoothie” because it contains so many great-for-your-skin hydrating ingredients that give your skin a glow and leave you feeling refreshed. It has a light and fresh taste and is actually a great smoothie for people who are new to green juices. It’s sweet, creamy, and not at all bitter.
Glowing Skin Green Smoothie

3/4 cup frozen pineapple
1 cup coconut water
3 large leaves green kale, stems removed
1/2 large cucumber, peeled

Place all the ingredients in a blender. Process on high until smooth and creamy. Drink immediately.Pin It
