    Last year I posted my famous Complexion Smoothie – well I have been drinking her for about a year now and get compliments on my skin daily. I drink it about 3 times a week so recently I figured it was time for a little change!

    I told you all about the positive effects of berries and carrot juice in the original complexion smoothie – so I wanted to make sure this new and improved version had equal benefits!

    I was on http://www.livestrong.com and this is what I found out about our coconut and blue berry friends:

    "Coconut water contains antioxidants and important electrolytes, such as potassium. The antioxidants, and coconut water's ability to quickly hydrate your body, make it excellent for peachy hydrated skin.

    Blueberries are rich in fiber as well as vitamins A and C, while low in saturated fat, cholesterol and sodium. They are also a good source of antioxidants, and can be eaten raw, cooked with other foods, or dried for use in tea. No matter what form blueberries take in your diet, their many vitamins and nutrients can be good for your skin. Whether you suffer from acne, broken capillaries or splotchy skin, the nutrients in blueberries will help.”

    So, what do we do? Combine the two super ingredients to make the MOST delicious, super anti-oxidant skin-perfecting smoothie around!

    Ingredients
    1 frozen banana
    3/4 cup of frozen blueberries (I try to use WILD or Canadian blueberries if possible – we call them Saskatoon Berries)
    2 heaping tablespoons of Coconut yogurt (try to buy organic or Greek)
    1 cup of Coconut water 1 cap of "Healthy Skin with Greens Plus"

    Blend in blender … and enjoy!

    I am with Jodi Pink - I can't figure out what "healthy skin with greens+" is and where I can find it. Can you give us some helpful hints?
