Strawberry Summer Fun Smoothie Recipe

August 1st marks us more than halfway through our summer. With increased consumption of pool-side cocktails, sun damage and chlorine stripping your hair and skin, it’s time to give your body a boost!

Here are some quick tips and recipes from Omega Juicers and Blenders to help keep you healthy, hydrated and energized throughout the summer homestretch.

Strawberry Summer Fun Smoothie Recipe

· 5 Cut Strawberries
· Six Ounces of Vanilla Yogurt
· 2 Cups Orange Juice

Blend the ingredients in your Omega Blender.

Omega Skincare Tip: Your skin may currently have that healthy tan but that doesn’t mean it’s healthy underneath. The sun has had its fair share with it-but nothing papayas and raspberries can’t help fix! Papayas improve pore clarity to give your skin that healthy glow-minus the redness and raspberries are rich in anti-oxidants. So make this raspberry and papaya smoothie a staple either before or after the beach!

Tropical Joy Juicer Recipe

1/4 Pineapple, cubed
2 Triangle Slices of Watermelon, cubed
2 cups coconut water
10-15 frozen blueberries
1/2 Banana

Juice all of the ingredients through your Omega Juicer.

Omega Health Tip: At almost 13 g per serving, low-fat yogurt offers more than 1/4 of your daily protein needs. Protein improves hair quality and growth to counter all the damage its been put through from the sun and chlorine. Make yogurt smoothies by blending yogurt with antioxidant-rich orange juice and fruits such as blueberries, strawberries or bananas.
