Winter Skin Elixir

The best advice I ever got was - what grows in season together, usually compliments well in a dish. That’s where the inspiration for this recipe came from. Seasonal fruits and veggies are the best way to fuel your body with fresh nutrients and enzymes. I love summer produce, don’t get me wrong. But there’s something something about the rich, antioxidant filled winter produce, that I crave. 

 

The Recipe:

  • 1 frozen Banana (this adjusts the creaminess)
  • 1/2 red Beet
  • 1 cup Grapes, red
  • 1 Pomegranate (seeds only)
  • 1 cup milk of choice
  • 1 Square Non|Verbal Chocolate (optional)
  • 2 tsp Cacao powder, raw
  • 1 tsp Coconut oil

 

The Method:

Blend all the ingredients except the dark chocolate until creamy. Pour into a glass, garnish with the chocolate, and drink immediately.

 

 

The Benefits:

Pomegranate: One of my favorite superfoods. They’re yummy but packed with a variety of nutrients. Its benefits go beyond just skin, but also positively impacting mind, body, and overall health. 

Red Grapes: Organic grapes contain antioxidants that are wonderful for the cardiovascular system. They also contain polyphenols and that are known for reducing inflammation. 

Non|verbal Chocolate: If you haven’t heard of Non|Verbal, it’s my pleasure to introduce you. Adaptogenic chocolate starting with organic, fair-trade cacao, infused with Chinese and Ayurvedic herbs. Bobby & Deniz go above & beyond in their harvesting methods and we are lucky to carry them at See New! Each bar has an impressive ingredient list, of 3,000 MG of skin loving herbs. Definitely check them out!

Coconut Oil: Virgin coconut oil contains high amounts of nutrients such as Vitamin E and bioactive compounds such as polyphenols. A great quality fat, fats are essential for optimal skin health.
