Chia Banana Smoothie

This delicious smoothie recipe has outstanding skin health properties as well as overall health and well-being properties. Not only does it taste delicious, but it contains ingredients that are so good for us. Bananas contain a high source of fibre and potassium which is excellent for overall health, while the chia seeds have essential fatty acids which are important for a youthful looking skin. We’ve also used honey to sweeten up the smoothie which has great antibacterial properties. However, the most important ingredient is almond milk – it is very high in Vitamin E which is a powerful antioxidant which is very important for skin health to protect our skin from free radicals.
