Summer may be on its last legs (sob), but this smoothie will mentally bring you back to the beachside. As someone who relies on morning smoothies during the warmer months (only an icy, refreshing sip seems right on a humid summer day), I love to play around with different concoctions—and I can attest that this recipe tastes nothing short of phenomenal. So, naturally, I just had to share (check it out on TikTok, should you find yourself scrolling). 

It's a blend I cobbled together quite recently—and it tastes like a cool, tropical-inspired treat (with a few beauty benefits, too).*

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon hemp seeds
  • Handful of coconut flakes 

Method

  1. Combine the mango, spinach, cashew butter, collagen, oat milk, and ice cubes into a blender and whir until smooth. Feel free to add more ice cubes if you enjoy a colder, frothier texture.

As someone who takes painstaking care of her skin, I know that what I put inside my body matters just as much as the topicals I'm slathering on. So I fill my blender to the brim in healthy, skin-loving ingredients: From the antioxidants and fiber in spinach to the protein in cashew butter to the slew of beauty-centric bioactives in mbg's beauty & gut collagen+.*

See, studies have shown that taking collagen peptides will support skin elasticity and hydration levels and promote youthful texture.* And in our high-quality formula, there are vitamins C and E for enhanced collagen production and antioxidant support, hyaluronic acid for skin hydration, biotin to support strong hair and nails, and curcumin from turmeric extract and sulforaphane from broccoli seed extract to support detoxification and combat oxidative stress.* (Did I mention this powder was chock-full of skin-loving ingredients?) 

The takeaway. 

Smoothies are a tasty and easy way to pack in nutrients. This summer-inspired blend? It features a load of ingredients that fill you up and help you glow.*
