This gluten free & vegan blueberry avocado smoothie recipe combines ingredients that help firm the skin and offset the free radical aging process!

When it comes to getting a little older day by day, working a little harder day by day and sleeping a little less day by day, I need a little help when it comes to keeping my skin looking young, fresh and wrinkle-free (and I’m pretty sure I’m not alone on this!)

On a recent visit to see my beautiful, talented and super sweet esthetician, Elizabeth Rabena, I asked her about things I could do to improve those annoying circles under my eyes. Seriously it’s like one day I woke up and was no longer 22, how did that happen? Haha!

She recommended incorporating more turmeric in my diet to help with the dark circles.

I took her advice and then did a little research on other foods that would help boost the skin and alleviate wrinkles.

Blueberries are super antioxidant rich which helps offset free radical damage and helps slow down the aging process. Woo hoo! In the words of my girl Taylor Swift “I’m feeling 22!”  😉

Avocados are packed with Vitamin E which is a great natural moisturizer for the skin.

Protein helps firm skin and become resistant to lines, which is why I incorporated soy milk into the smoothie. Soy milk packs 8 grams of heart-healthy soy protein into this smoothie. It also has 50% more calcium than dairy milk!

Blueberry Avocado Smoothie Ingredients

  • ½ cup blueberries
  • 1 avocado (peeled & de-seeded)
  • 5.3 oz dairy-free soy blueberry yogurt
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger (grated)
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp flaxseed
  • 1 cup soy milk
  • 1 cup ice

Blueberry Avocado Smoothie Instructions

Add the blueberries, avocado and soy blueberry yogurt to a blender. Add the turmeric and cinnamon. Freshly grate the ginger into the blender.

Add the honey, flaxseed, soy milk and ice to the blender.

Blend until smooth.

A creamy and delicious smoothie, packed with healthy ingredients that will help your skin look younger and smoother, now that’s a great way to start the day if I do say so myself!
