The skin is super good at showing us when we are low on nutrients or have just experienced a lovely (irony) bout of stress. Like many other organs of the body, the skin needs a lot of nutrients to remain in tip-top condition, so show your body some love with this delicious skin-boosting smoothie bowl packed full of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Zinc, Protein and Healthy Fats.


1 Serving



Total Time:

10 Minutes


2.0 Litre Container

Purple smoothie bowl topped with seeds nuts and dried coconut for a delicious smoothie bowl with skin-boosting benefits


1/2 mug of frozen cherries - for Vitamin C
1/2 mug of frozen blueberries - for Vit c & skin supporting antioxidants
A handful of kale - for Vitamin A
1/2 an avocado - it’s full of healthy fats & skin supporting Vitamin E
3 tablespoons of hemps seeds - for zinc & skin healthy Omega 3 fats - check Good Hemp for hemp seed hearts
1 heaped tablespoon of collagen (optional) - collagen is the main structural protein in the skin, some studies show a benefit to skin health with supplementation, others state it’s increased intakes of protein on the whole that benefit skin health. If you don’t have any collagen powder handy then use a protein powder instead. I used this collagen.
1 heaped tablespoon of kefir - I used a coconut kefir by the Coconut Collaborative. Kefir plays a role in gut health which is indirectly linked with skin health.
1-2 dates if you like a sweeter smoothie bowl
3/4s of a mug of milk or milk alternative


1. Blend everything using a high-speed blender.
2. Transfer to a bowl and top with toppings of your choice.
