We’ve been raving about the many benefits of applying coconut oil for hair and skin for a while now but eating raw coconut is good for your skin too. Eating coconut daily can get boring though. So, let’s make it healthier and exciting with these 3 delicious coconut smoothies that will give you beautiful skin in no time.
Coconut and turmeric smoothie
It might not sound appetising but trust us, ladies, this smoothie is delicious and packed with nutrients. Turmeric contains anti-ageing curcumin which protects your skin from ageing by preventing free radicles from damaging your skin. The vitamin E in coconut keeps your skin healthy and maintains its elasticity. You can also add in some banana and pineapple for extra flavour. Banana also fights wrinkles and prevents fine lines.
Take 1 cup coconut milk, 1/2 cup diced pineapple and banana each and 1 teaspoon ground turmeric. Blend until smooth and you will have a delicious smoothie which also prevents your skin from ageing.
