Chocolate Cherry Smoothie Recipe
Smoothie Recipe Key Beauty Ingredient: Organic Cherries
Benefits of Cherries: Imagine biting into the most decadent bar of chocolate knowing it’s good for your health and skin…perfection right? This week’s smoothie is chocolate perfection with a cherry on top! Rich enough to be dessert, but beauty food-infused enough to be your breakfast. The sweet and juicy cherry is an amazing anti-inflammatory fruit. Cherries contain an antioxidant called anthocyanins, which is responsible for the beautiful red color, and works wonders on puffy and inflamed skin. The other power nutrient is melatonin—an antioxidant hormone that protects the skin against the sun’s ultraviolet radiation. Melatonin stimulates cell growth which is beneficial for damaged skin. Frozen organic cherries are almost as nutritious as fresh, so enjoying them in smoothies will cure your winter blues and make your skin glow.
