Love It or List It Vancouver's Jillian Harris receives compliments about her skin every day. She credits a glowing complexion to a smoothie that is packed with dark-leafy greens and antioxidants. A similar smoothie sold at juice stands or grocers can cost up to $7! A homemade version will definitely mean an increase in savings. 

I've been drinking one of these smoothies every morning for the last three weeks and I've noticed amazing results. Not only do I have great energy, but my skin has zero blemishes and my nails are strong and the tips are a nice clean white! Not to mention ... ahem.... “things” work a little better these days—the whole house has been seeing the results!

Complexion Smoothie
By Jillian Harris
Serves 2-3

Ingredients
1 cup frozen berries (I use blackberries and black cherries from our family's garden, you can buy them frozen in a bulk economical bag. The less strawberries the better as these are particularly high in sugar. Blueberries and blackberries are best!)

1 large banana (Tip: I buy bananas in bulk or on sale, peel them, break them into two and freeze 2-4 pieces individually in zip-lock bags. This way, the bananas never go bad and are always at arm's reach.)

1/4 cup carrot juice (This is the key ingredient. You might not like the sound of this, but this juice is delicious and the berries are still the main flavor. Also, carrot juice has tons of vitamin A & biotin, both of which are key to healthy hair and nails. Hair and nail vitamins provide 100% Vitamin A and one serving of my fave, Bolthouse Carrot Juice, has 700%)

1 capful Greens+ Unflavored (This is another key ingredient as it’s just like having a day’s worth of spinach, kale and collard greenswithout actually eating them. All of these greens are so good for your skin. I find Greens+ quite expensive though, so if you’re on a budget, I have used frozen spinach or even fresh kale, spinach or collard greens. The berries will cover up the taste, guaranteed you won't even taste it!)

Steps
Blend all ingredients in your blender and enjoy with a straw!
