Rejuvenating Strawberry Avocado Smoothie

An avocado smoothie is chock full of healthy ingredients, that can help to make you look and feel younger and more energetic.

Avocado


And who said you have to put an avocado mask on your face? Some doctors even claim that it's much more effective to eat the ingredients than to put them on your skin.

You probably already know about the various nutritional values, strawberries have for you, if not, read my article about Strawberry Health Benefits.

Combine this with the power of avocado and you're literally in nutrition heaven :-)

Those green fruits contain plenty of potassium, calcium and magnesium. They also provide you with B-complex vitamins, vitamins C and E, and beta-carotene. All of them in the best possible form for your body: provided by nature.

There are many, many more healthy benefits related to Avocado smoothie, I just want to mention one that is especially welcome for us women above 29: It is an extraordinary antioxidant, that captures the dangerous free radicals. You know, those little bad things, that make our skin age prematurely.

Furthermore, the oil contained in Avocados is one of the highest quality oils you can use and is good for skin rejuvenation. Therefore many cosmetic prodcuts contain it. But you will get the same benefits by eating the stuff.

If you want to make a facial mask, get some great recipes on my Skin Care pages.

And it's sooo delicious.  On to the recipe....

Avocado Strawberry Cream

Strawberry Avocado Cream to Rejuvenate Your Skin from the Inside

Ingredients

  • 1 cup milk or almond milk
  • 1 cups strawberries
  • 1 avocado


How to Make the Smoothie

  1. Cut the Avocado in halves.
  2. Take out the flesh and put into blender. I use a spoon to take the Avocado flesh out of the skin. It's the easiest way to do it, if the pieces don't have to look good.
  3. If you want, keep two rounded pieces of Avocado for decoration
  4. Add the milk and blend until smooth
  5. Pour into two glasses
  6. Rinse the blender
  7. Remove stems from the strawberries and put into blender.
  8. Blend until smooth
  9. Carefully pour on top of the Avocado cream


Now you have this fantastic looking 2-colored smoothie that tastes just heavenly.

Off course, you can also make it the easy way and just put all the ingredients into a blender and mix thoroughly.
