This almond ginger smoothie is packed with good-for-you ingredients that support clear, blemish free skin. Warming ginger and creamy almond butter make this a crave-able delight, even in the colder fall and winter months.
Here are some of the benefits:
Bananas contain fiber, Vitamin B6, and potassium. They support kidney, bone, and cardiovascular health.
Ginger is perfect for soothing your digestive tract and is highly anti-inflammatory, which aids in maintaining blemish-free skin. It also supports the immune system and provides anti-viral benefits, making it a great food to include during winter months.
Almond butter supports skin health thanks to Vitamin E and various minerals. Almonds may help curb hunger and support weight loss.
Hemp seeds contain anti-inflammatory omega 3 fatty acids which help reduce and prevent bumps. They provide an easily digestible, complete plant-based protein, and pack nutrients needed for clear skin, energy, and optimal thyroid health.
