Check Out These Top-Model Approved Smoothie and Juice Recipes

I love when models share beauty tips that are actually doable (attending one of LA’s top spas for a 24-karat gold facial is not one of those tips!). Making a healthy vegan smoothie or juice full of skin-loving antioxidants is definitely easy to do, however. While we all know drinking a greens-packed drink is a great way to get our servings of veggies, it’s easy to fall into a smoothie rut. If you find that you’re getting bored with your current smoothie/juice routine, take inspiration from some of the fashion industry’s top models—turns out they’ve got great smoothie game! Below, I’ve included a Peaceful Dumpling “version” in case you’d like to try a variation on the model’s favorite drinks!

Who: Alexandra Ambrosio

Smoothie of choice: 1 banana, 1 large pear or green apple, 1 cup of spinach, 1 cup of romaine or kale, juice of two lemons, 1 cup celery, 1 cup cold water, and stevia to sweeten if necessary (as reported by Cella Jane).     

Benefits: The abundance of lemon juice in this fruity green smoothie provides you with plenty of vitamin C—a powerful antioxidant for skin and a healthy vitamin for the liver.

Juice of choice: “Kale, celery, apple, cucumber and a squeeze of lemon. I make my own juice every day at home,” the model told Vogue. “It really makes a difference. I can feel my body—everything’s going to way it should and I then I don’t feel guilty if I don’t get to eat my five a day of vegetables.”

Benefits: Cucumbers are packed with B vitamins, which can help buffer the effects of stress and help support healthy hair and nail growth.

Who: Miranda Kerr

Smoothie of choice: Aussie model Kerr combines coconut water with açai powder, spirulina, goji berries, raw cacao powder, maca powder, chia seeds, and vegan rice protein powder. See how Kerr makes her antioxidant-packed smoothie in this video by Body Beautiful.

Benefits: Aside from containing, like, all, the superfoods, the protein powder in this fascinating smoothie will help keep blood sugar stable, which is a must if you’re combatting skin issues like acne.

Smoothie of Choice: “I make the most amazing tropical green smoothie,” Finch tells Vogue. “It’s two to three cups baby spinach, one cup coconut yogurt, one cup fresh pineapple chunks (frozen is optional), half a cup fresh mango chunks (frozen is optional), one tablespoon chia seeds. Blend all ingredients together until smooth and you can add some water to help with blending.”

Benefits: Pineapple contains the digestive enzyme bromelain, which is associated with a host of benefits, including cancer prevention and reduced inflammation.

Juice of choice: “I find green juices a chore to drink. My favorite juice is carrot, beetroot, ginger, and apple—but I’ll drink it because I really like it, not for any other reason.”

Benefits: Beets are high in vitamin C, fiber, and essential minerals like potassium and manganese.
