As I continue my healthy streak this season by staying active and creating healthy habits, I realize how much effort it is to balance a healthy lifestyle with a busy one– especially in the mornings, when I’m doing about five different things at once to get my day started. And when I’m not eating healthy, my energy, mood, AND skin suffers! Beauty comes from within, ya’ll… literally.
Coffee and I have never mixed well together. Black coffee wakes me up in a flash, but has me crashing hard by lunch time. I’m a sucker for frappuccinos and lattes, but they’re total sugar and calorie bombs, making me feel bloated! In an attempt to find something I can whip up fast that will nourish my mornings, I tried out this five-ingredient superfood smoothie recipe and my body’s loving it! It’s got more good-for-you ingredients than anything else I could grab as fast in the morning, and won’t have me crashing later on. I’ve also made it in the early afternoon to get me through the home stretch of my day.
For this smoothie, the star of the show is the new HUM Raw Beauty Powder. It contains organic greens, antioxidants, adaptogens, enzymes, probiotics and fibers for a healthy metabolism. With a total of 39 beauty detox superfoods that help boost energy and maintain radiant skin– including wheat grass, flax seed, kale, and acai– this subtly sweet drink acts like a snack and beauty potion all in one.
You can actually get three packets of the HUM Raw Beauty Powder for $2.95 (three servings) if you want to try it before investing in the full size. When you get your packets, it also comes with a $10 coupon for your first order, so you can pick up a full tub for just $29! It currently only comes in the Mint Chocolate Chip flavor, but even as someone who doesn’t necessarily like chocolate, it’s subtle enough to customize by adding different fruits to the mix.
