There is so much focus in the beauty world on treating the skin from the outside and not so much about treating your skin from the inside. I have learned that what we eat has a massive impact on how our skin looks. This drink has a power mix of nutrients in it that help to hydrate, strengthen and smooth the skin, along with offering anti-ageing properties and helping to minimise skin damage from the sun. This is a good one for kiddies due to its chocolate and strawberry combination and you are sneaking other veggies into it, too!
25g dark chocolate (85% cocoa solids), roughly chopped or 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
150ml unsweetened almond or rice milk or water, at room temperature
100g strawberries, hulled
½ ripe tomato, roughly chopped
½ carrot, peeled and roughly chopped
3 walnut halves ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
Melt the chocolate in a small pan on the hob or in a bowl in the microwave. Remove and leave to cool to room temperature. Skip this step if using cocoa powder instead. Put all the ingredients in a blender or NutriBullet and blitz for 30 seconds until smooth. Pour into a glass and serve.
