Sage Apple Pear Smoothie Ingredients
1 1/2 oz chard3 sage leaves1 pear – chopped1/2 cup applesauce2 tbsp pumpkin seeds1/2 tsp camu camu1 cup water1 cup ice
Chard has a light, earthy flavor and blends nicely with the caramel notes of camu camu (which is bursting with skin-beautifying vitamin C). Pumpkin seeds are full of fiber, which helps to keep you satisfied, zinc (great for a healthy immune system and clear skin), and magnesium, a mineral that most people don’t get enough of that helps with a regular sleep cycle and muscle soreness. Sage is also great for muscle soreness, and has even been shown to ward against cognitive decline. Amp up your beauty and brains with this light drink.
