I call this recipe mud mask, because it’s full of vitamin c, a and e and the perfect smoothie to have for clearer skin over time.
Blackberries, blueberries and grapes give the mud mask smoothie its rich purple hue, and is a delicious flavor combo. I love to add kale for an extra boost of vitamin k, which is essential for blood circulation. By blending these leafy greens in your smoothie, the taste of the kale is hidden. Its perfect if you don’t like the taste of kale, or if you’re trying to sneak in extra veggies for a little one
The recipe calls for warm water to break down the almonds, kale and allow for a creamy smoothie without using dairy. Use a high speed blender to get this smoothie extra smooth. If you don’t have one, be sure to chop your kale finely, add the water, almonds first, so the leaves are fully broken down in your final drink. To save time in the mornings, prep out your smoothie ingredients (everything except almonds and warm water) in individual freezer bags. Then dump your ingredients in the blender when you’re ready to go in the next days.
