Beauty Smoothie time: SPA Skin Cleanser

beauty smoothie

I can’t count the number of battles I’ve had with my skin over the years. From acne, to dry skin to oily skin to sunburns… I can go every which way. I’ve learned a few constants over the years to keep my luscious skin between the ups and downs: hydration, fiber and healthy fats. Yep— those three things are the magic ingredients to beautiful luscious skin.

Wanna know why? Your skin is the largest organ on your body. And like your other organs, it’s affected by what you feed it and how other organs are functioning around it. I’m gonna be blunt here: if you’re having plumbing problems, there’s a good chance it’ll show on your skin. If foods are moving through you and leaving the body at a healthy pace, then the toxins will make it out via bowel movements. Yet if you’re clogged up, the toxins will find another way out… and the skin is the next avenue (and it isn’t pretty).

The Beauty Smoothie

To help keep my skin healthy, I rely in this beauty smoothie — SPA Skin Cleanser. It’s loaded with fiber, hydrating coconut oil and healthy fats. It’s a gem of goodness and the taste is amazing too. Blend it, and let me know what you think by leaving a comment below.

    Hello!
    First of all, thank you for the amazing recipes and tips!
    I have a question, because I have some trouble with one of your main ingredient:
    Can I use cucumber instead of spinach? (I have read “Why you should rotate your greens” article, but I can’t find cucumber in it.)
    It’s hard to get fresh spinach here in my country right now.
    Thank you and sorry for my English! 🙂

      Hi Eliz!

      Thanks for reaching out! We love adding cucumber to our smoothies :). However, keep in mind that cucumber is actually a fruit! There are so many different leafy greens you can use in our recipes–kale, chard, beet greens, romaine, etc., so if you can, we’d recommend adding at least one to give your smoothie some veggie goodness. However, if leafy greens are hard to come by where you live, totally feel free to use cucumber!

      Hope that helps :). Cheers!

        Thank you for your answer!
        Oh I did not think cucumber is a fruit! Well then I will keep this in my mind and I will use other leafy greens, like cabbage or kale, because I like them too and I can buy them freshly anytime. (I just love cucumber, this was the reason of my question :D)

        Hi Eliz!

        I love cucumber, too :). Always feel free to toss it into your smoothies, as well! It’s especially yummy with pineapple and mint :).

        Cheers!

    I really want to try your smoothies especially as meal replacements. My major problem is that I am allergic to avocado. Is there anything I can use to replace it as a healthy fat?
    Thanks

    You had mention where you buy your coconut water from, but not a name. Can you please give us a name of a good coconut water.

    • SGS Rawkstar 5.20.2016 at 6:39 am #

      Hi Lydia,

      Looking for a great coconut water? I personally love reaching for Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s brand coconut water, as their label only has one ingredient…with no additives or added sugar! Don’t have a TJ’s or WF’s nearby? Ensuring that your coconut water is free of any additions is the key to finding a great option!

    Hello! From today on i am going to Make this smoothie for 30 days but spinach is only good for 2 days… And to Goto the grocery store every other 2 days is impossible for me … Do you have an alternative for the spinach? An other Green ingredient? Maybe frozen spinach.. Sorry for my Bad english 🙂 greetz from Holland!

    So I stumbled across this website and I’m eager to try this recipe, (I have acne prone skin), and all the other recipes.

    The only problem is that I don’t have a fancy blender. But I do have a juicer. Could I make these recipes in my juicer?

    What are the benefits of fresh smoothies over fresh juice? Or does it not matter?

    Thanks!!

    Very good, approved recipe 😉 thank you

    • SGS Rawkstar Jessie 3.29.2016 at 3:49 pm #

      YAY! Thanks Bella, glad it has your stamp of approval! CHEERS!

    Hi, when you indicate fresh spinach( or fresh greens in general) can I substitute it with frozen ones instead? Thanks!!

    • SGS Rawkstar 2.29.2016 at 11:34 am #

      HI Lucbabe,

      Great question! We love using frozen greens, but those from the grocery aisle don’t always yield the tastiest results. For that reason, we love to free our own!! It’s perfect for stocking up on your favorites when they’re in season, or even better…on sale! Learn more about freezing your leafy greens here…

    I’ve recently started having green smoothies, a number of your recipes have pineapple and some have kiwi fruit. I’m allergic to these two fruit, can you please recommend what other fruit or vegetable I can use in their place. Thanks for a fab website and yummy recipes!

    • SGS Rawkstar 2.26.2016 at 8:27 am #

      Hi Pauline,

      We’ve got you covered! Some great substitutes for pineapple are orange + mango. And reach for mango, orange, tangerine, or lime in place of kiwi!

      Hope this helps! Reach out with any questions! 🙂
