Team Smoothie Recipes—and Free Giveaway!

Check out the team's smoothie favorites at Annmarie Gianni Skin Care!

Do you love to feel nourished, energized, and sport a healthy, radiant glow? Then you must love smoothies as much as we do! If you haven’t tried a healthy and delicious green smoothie before, then you are in for a treat!

In the mornings at the Annmarie Gianni skin care headquarters, many of us arrive to the office with our mason jars, filled to the brim with our favorite blends of fruits and veggies. Who needs coffee? Am I right? (Okay, maybe a few of us can’t live without our lattes).

Smoothies not only taste great and provide loads of energy, but they also have a seemingly endless amount of healing properties:

  • Promote natural weight loss
  • Help you maintain a healthy weight
  • Provide key vitamins and minerals
  • Encourage clear and glowing skin
  • Give you fiber, fiber, and more fiber
  • Help balance your hormones
  • Contribute to your daily consumption of fruits and vegetables
  • Alkalizing  (helps to balance the body’s PH levels)
  • Give you a great boost of antioxidants
  • Support mental clarity and focus
  • Boosts the immune system
  • Help you feel proud for being so good to your body!

Remember, if you want your smoothie to be healthy and nutritious, keep the alkalizing greens dominant (anywhere from 60-80%). The fruits added should give it the sweetness needed to make the greens tastier and easier to get down (for those who are new to drinking their greens). Otherwise, too much fruit may send your blood sugar levels to the moon.

Don’t get me wrong—indulging in fruit smoothies can be a delicious way to treat yourself from time to time, but if you’re looking for wellness and nutrition, green smoothies are the way to go!

Here is a round up of some of our favorite smoothie recipes, which will help you sip your way to health and a glowing completion. For details on the giveaway, see below!
