The recipe for your skin…
Winter skin? Add an avocado to your morning smoothie. It contains high amounts of antioxidants, vitamin E and polyunsaturated fats, which all help to keep your skin moisturised. The addition of baobab-fruit powder – high in vitamin C – helps your body to form collagen and elastin, two structural proteins that give your skin support and elasticity.

½ to ¾ cup coconut water
10 to 12 frozen strawberries
1 tbsp baobab powder
1 tsp honey
1/ Place all the ingredients in a blender and pulse until smooth.
2/ Add more coconut water depending on how runny you like your smoothie.
