Too much sugar (especially the refined kind) can speed along the wrinkle process. With only 3g of sugar per serving, and tons of vitamin C and anti-inflammatory ingredients, this smoothie is perfect for those trying to watch their sugar intake. Grape tomatoes, collard greens and alkalizing lemon are bursting with collagen-aiding vitamin C, ginger is fantastic for lowering inflammation and regulating blood sugar, and chia seeds have the kind of Omega-3s our skin and immune system craves. Kick-start your day with this light and energizing snack.
SPECIAL NOTE: We added two teaspoons of organic natural unprocessed raw honey to help us soften the harsh-bitter (to us) taste. We came to the conclusion that we would add a tablespoon of organic natural unprocessed raw honey in the future.
