Skin-Saving Orange Banana Green Smoothie

photo-1This is a smoothie concoction I came up with while researching cures for hormone-induced acne. While that may not sound too appealing, food is the best health care, and this smoothie is as delicious as it is nutrient-packed.

So what ingredients are good for a glowing complexion? Orange for texture-improving vitamin C, coconut oil for essential fats, turmeric and ginger for brightening, maca powder for hormone balancing, spirulina for zinc, iron and deep sea minerals, and plenty of greens. I try and keep the fruit content here relatively low, as sugar is not good for acne flair.

I have been drinking one of these bad boys every day for the past two months and have seen major improvement in my skin. Note that I also gave up coffee (!) and processed sugar.
