What you eat matters to your health. And there are definitely certain foods that are age-defying by improving cell growth and preventing cell damage. I’m always looking for ways to be “wrinkle free” and protect my skin. Food is a great tool for this. Here are 5 anti-aging smoothies to make your skin look younger and stay fresh.

  1. Vitamin E helps the skin retain moisture and protects it from the harmful effects of free radicals.

Green Goddess Smoothie

Ingredients:
1 cup of tightly packed spinach (vitamin E)
1/2 ripe medium banana
2 Tablespoons avocado (peeled and pit removed) (vitamin E)
1 Tablespoon sunflower seeds (vitamin E)
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
1 cup of unsweetened almond milk (vitamin E)

Directions:
Put everything in a blender. Blend and pour.

  1. Vitamin C improves cell growth and one study even suggested a diet high in vitamin C can result in fewer wrinkles. Vitamin C also helps regenerate other vitamins in the body like Vitamin E.

BlueberryBreeze

Ingredients:
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries (vitamin C)
1 cup fresh or frozen strawberries (vitamin C)
1 cup coconut water
1 Tablespoon lemon juice (vitamin C)
1 teaspoon chia seeds

Put everything in a blender. Blend and pour.

  1. Beta-Carotene, a carotenoid antioxidant, protects cells from damage and assists with better eyesight, too.

1 green apple (core removed and chopped)
Lemon juice from 1 lemon or 2 Tablespoons lemon juice
1 cup coconut water

Directions:
Put everything in a blender. Blend and pour.

  1. Omega-3: As we age, our skin loses its moisture and elasticity which causes more wrinkles. Omega-3s have been found to provide the skin with more moisture by keeping the cells of the epidermis (our top layer of skin) plump and hydrated.

½ cup mango (sliced)
1 cup pineapple (sliced)
1 Tablespoon chia seeds (Omega-3)

      Thank you Margaret. Smoothies are fabulous and great for your skin and health. You’re on the right track!

  2. How often do you drink these smoothies and do you rotate them or just pick one

    • Sarah Koszyk, MA, RDN says:

      I like to rotate my smoothies so I don’t get bored. To make my shopping list simple, I’ll make the same smoothie for 3 days in a row. After I’m done using up the ingredients, I’ll choose another smoothie and rotate it. I drink 1 smoothie a day on average. Sometimes 2 when I’m rushing around and don’t have time to cook a meal 🙂 Life gets busy!
