Papaya Skin Saver Smoothie

Delicious papaya is an excellent source of antioxidant Vitamin A. Vitamin A helps improve acne and rebuild tissues while keeping fine lines, wrinkles and dull skin at bay. Boost this smoothie with more skin foods like strawberries, which contain more Vitamin C than oranges! Vitamin C is associated with fewer wrinkles and less age-related dry skin, while fighting free radicals that lead to fine lines and collagen loss. This tasty, refreshing and cool smoothie is not only a thirst quencher but a skin saver!

cup almond milk

1 Tbs. ground flaxseed (optional)
