Sunrise - the Beauty Superfood Smoothie
I call this smoothie Sunrise - obviously because of its looks, but also because it can instantly renew my energy. It’s with mangosteen and hibiscus, and when you mix those two, you get a vitamin-C boost, an anti-oxidant powerhouse, a blood mineralizer, a detoxifier, an anti-inflammatory kick, and a super nourisher with a profound ability to purify and nourish the blood, plus cleanse and nourish the skin.
1 ¼ cup mango chunks (I use frozen organic)
½ cup sea buckthorn (I use frozen)
1 tsp. mangosteen powder or 1 fresh mangosteen
½ cup freshly squeezed orange juice
2 tbsp. coconut milk powder
Maybe a little water or full-fat coconut milk if the smoothie is too thick
1 ½ cup hibiscus tea*
½ cup strawberry (frozen)
½ cup raspberries (frozen)
Place mango, sea buckthorn, orange juice, coconut, and mangosteen in your blender and blend until smooth.
Maybe a little water or full-fat coconut milk if it’s is too thick.
Pour the mango layer into 2 glasses.
Place the frozen raspberries in the strainer and pour boiling water over them to help burn off potential harmful bacteria.
Rinse out the blender and place all of the ingredients for the red layer in it and blend until smooth.
Pour the red mixture on top of the yellow mango mixture.
*) HOW TO MAKE THE HIBISCUS TEA
1 tbsp dried hibiscus flowers
½ cup boiling water
Place hibiscus flowers in a pot or cup and pour the water over.
Let the tea steep for 5 minutes.
Strain the tea.
