All areas of our life feed into the theme of beauty and I’ve been looking ways of changing your diet to improve your skin health and complexion. This morning I made myself smoothies that are good for your skin – a Mango, Passion Fruit and Lime Juice Yoghurt Smoothie. Its been a while since I’ve done a food post, I think my last one was my Halloween Pumpkin Soup. Mango has many properties that can benefit your skin and hair, it is high in Vitamin C and E, it detoxifies the skin preventing breakouts as it is high in antioxidants and contains Vitamin A that revives your skin to give you a better complexion. The antioxidants found in mangos are also fantastic for delaying anti-ageing and smoothing out your skin. Passion fruit is also high in Vitamin A, helping cell growth so giving you healthier skin. Passion Fruit also has 12 different carotenoids that aid the body in producing and absorbing Vitamin A. Passion Fruit contain Vitamin C and Iron, the Vitamin C aids in the body absorbing the Iron content of the fruit. As a vegetarian this is a great source of Iron for me. Not only is this smoothie good for your skin but I’ve found smoothies to be a great way to improve your diet and boost your fruit and vegetable intake throughout the day. To make the smoothie cut up your Large Mango into chucks, removing the skin and large seed, and put in a mixing bowl. Cut your 3 Passion Fruit in halves and empty the seeds into the bowl. Add 4 table spoons of Low Fat Mango & Passionfruit Yogurt 450g and blend together. Once blended add Lime juice and more yoghurt based on taste and preference.
