You’re a real go getter & deserve a treat that will fuel your body & satisfy your taste buds! Starting this month, I will be putting together a superfoods smoothie recipe of the month just for you guys :) you can make these recipes at home or come into the Birdhouse Cafe to have us whip one up for you!

April’s smoothie of the month is the Glow Getter. This dreamy orange treat lives up to its name & will give your skin all it needs to get its glow on! (Yes, I shamelessly love puns.)

Ingredients:

1 large ripe banana (previously peeled, sliced and frozen // more for a sweeter smoothie)

1 cup pineapple

1/2 Tbsp fresh ginger (peeled)

1/4 tsp ground turmeric 

1/2 cup carrots

1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice 

1 cup coconut milk or almond milk

Preparation:

Add all your ingredients to your blender & blend until smooth.

What gives the Glow Getter its super powers? Let me tell ya!

Bananas contain potassium + vitamins E & C, which are all essential for glowing skin. Pineapple packs a vitamin punch & it contains bromelain, an enzyme that softens skin, prevents acne & promotes an even skin tone. Ginger gives this smoothie an extra zing of spice & helps promote gut health. A healthy gut is essential for skin health. Beauty starts in the belly :) I can’t go without applauding carrots for their bright vibrant color. Carrots get their beautiful glow from Beta Carotene, an essential nutrient to promote healthy skin & eyes. Last but not least, let me brag on the lemons. Lemons are a powerful antioxidant, full of vitamins & alkalize the body.

Each of these glow getting superstars deserve applause on their own, but when put together, they can’t be beat. Get your glow on, birdies!
