A note from Sofiia
I created this potion because I'm a total fan of smoothies! I also wanted this recipe to be not only easy to digest, but a gourmet breakfast that gives me a boost of energy for my Barre Shape classes. From a physiological point of view, it is best to start the day with healthy fats. Eating fat in the morning lowers our insulin levels because when they are deprived of their fuel they will go directly into our stored fat (yes, this means if you eat fat in the morning, it triggers weight loss).
This recipe combines all of the magical ingredients to feast, fill up with nutrients and nourish your skin from the inside out to give you that radiant and hydrated look (that we all want, let’s be honest) ...Even better, this recipe is 100% guilt free, as in NO sugar. With this “Beautyfuel Radiant Smoothie,” I'm definitely not hungry before lunch time.
Ingredients and Benefits:
Avocado is the fruit highest in good lipids: Omega 9 works to reduce the cholesterol levels, and is also rich in vitamin C and E. A half of avocado in this morning smoothie is just perfect!
I like to add a teaspoon of my Cocoyo which is a coconut yogurt fermented with probiotics that I make myself! It is excellent for harmonizing the intestinal flora, while also making the smoothie creamier... (almond milk or vegan coconut yogurt work well here too as substitutes).
A large spoon of almond butter (unsweetened) for its rich antioxidants, Omega 3's, magnesium and biotin (which are essential for nail, hair and skin health).
Raw cacao in the pre-menstrual period can help reduce fatigue, cravings and cramps. Raw cacao is one of the richest foods in antioxidants, magnesium, iron, polyphenol and sulfur. Likewise, raw cocoa helps regenerate collagen and keratin, both ideal for skin radiance, nails and hair.
Sun Potion Pearl as a source of minerals including calcium, zinc, iron, selenium and amino acids. This Pearl Powder is rich in antioxidants and helps support the body's natural collagen production. The BEST beauty superfood from the inside out.
Optional: Add some Matcha (for even more glow and antioxidants)
The White Dragon Matcha by Sun Potion is rich in antioxidants, may boost metabolism and support healthy blood sugar levels, it is also anti-inflammatory and contains anti-aging properties! I absolutely love it, I only need to use a little bit to feel benefits from it...
