I wanted to share one of my favourite recipes for improving acne prone skin from the inside – out. Because what you put in – and on – your body are equally important.
This refreshing Pineapple & Dragon Fruit Skin Smoothie Bowl has been created with oily, acne prone skin in mind. Pineapple is a wonderful source of digestive enzymes for gut healing. It’s also anti-inflammatory, which makes it the perfect choice for acne prone or red skin!
2 cups pineapple, chopped and frozen
½ nectarine, chopped
½ white dragon fruit
2 cups of baby spinach (or another green)
½ cup of water or coconut milk
¼ cup fresh blueberries or other berries
½ cup granola or activated buckwheat
½ red dragon fruit, scooped in small balls with a teaspoon and frozen
¼ cup fresh pineapple
Handful of baby spinach
Combine all smoothie base ingredients into a blender until smooth
Pour ¼ cup of granola into a serving bowl. Pour smoothie layer.
Add toppings – start by spreading granola (or activated buckwheat) vertically across the bowl and arranging chopped fruit beside it.
