Smoothies are an excellent way of satisfying food cravings in between meals. And this particular smoothie is excellent for calming skin inflammation. Why? Blueberries are rich in antioxidants and walnuts are powerhouses of omega-3 fatty acids, which help make the skin plump and radiant by locking in nutrients.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1 cup walnut milk (if you can’t find this, you can use almond milk)
  • 1 tablespoon of flax seeds
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Handful of ice cubes

METHOD

  1. Blend all the ingredients until smooth in a high-speed blender. You can also add greens such as broccoli or kale to increase the nutrition quotient of this smoothie.
