A Glowing Skin Smoothie That Isn’t Green


antioxidant smoothie for glowing skin

Most smoothie recipes for glowing skin are green.  Many of them taste ok but there’s something about a green smoothie that just isn’t appetizing to me.   In addition, to get a good flavor, often pineapple juice is added to green smoothies and I’m allergic to pineapples! I’m always experimenting and creating smoothies that don’t include pineapple (or mango) and usually aren’t green.  Pineapples and mangos send me on a trip to the emergency room and on most days, I’m looking to avoid that.

I started making this smoothie a couple of weeks ago when it got really cold in Arizona and I was looking for all options to keep my skin looking fresh and glowy.  This is a light smoothie maybe more along the lines of a  fresh frothy juice.    While I love things that are overly sweet, this recipe is definitely on the mildly sweet side.  Also, if you want something thicker, like a shake, using frozen fruit will give you a denser consistency.

This Glowing Skin smoothie is made with ingredients that are packed with nutrients known to brighten up the complexion.

So if your skin feels like it could use extra love, give this glowing skin smoothie a try every day for one week to boost moisture and antioxidants.  For a change, you could also substitute the apple for a pear.

Glowing Skin Smoothie Recipe

antioxidant smoothie for glowing skin


  • 1/2 kiwi (peeled)
  • 1 small banana
  • 4 large frozen strawberries
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 apple (cored, peeled and roughly chopped)
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond, coconut, cashew, or soy milk
  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed (optional – if you are counting calories, this can be left off)


Put all the ingredients in a blender.  Blend until smooth and add the flaxseed last or sprinkle on top.   If you want a thicker texture, use frozen bananas and strawberries.

  1. Hi,
    Smoothie is my favourite but didn’t think of smoothie in this taste.
    I tried this recipe and was so delighted. The combination was so refreshing.
    Thank you for this recipe of smoothie, looking forward to other combination in a smoothie.
    Keep sharing:)

    1. I’m so glad you enjoyed it! It would seem like greens would not work well in smoothies or juices but they really do! Juicing is awesome with ingredients like these in different combinations too. Have a great week!


  2. That combination of fresh fruit, the smoothie recipe and the smoothie itself all look deliscious (and extremely healthy too)!!!!!! I’m quite lazy, so recently I’ve been buying a few different ready-to-eat containers of mixed fruit that my local supermarket has been selling, and then using a Hamilton Beach Hand-Blender on them, but I’m loving how yummy the ingredients in your recipe (and the result) look!!!

    1. I just got a few of those cups of premeasured smoothie ingredients to blend in the cup. I haven’t made them yet, but I am excited to try! oxoxxox

  3. Sounds yummy- I’ll have to try it without the banana as I have an allergy to those. Darn allergies causing all sorts of problems.

    I like the idea of a non-green smoothie. ?
