3 Fall-Inspired Smoothies for Glowing Skin

I love fall, it's my favorite season. The heat and humidity subside into a cool breeze and crisp air, and the leaves begin to change colors. But one thing I will miss about summer is always having that healthy, summer glow. But luckily there are tons of seasonal fall foods that will give you healthy, beautiful, glowing skin from the inside out. 

Grape and Lime Green Smoothie: I never knew grapes were a seasonal fruit until a couple of years ago, and honestly, they taste the best (and they're the cheapest) during the fall season. Packed full of vitamin C, an antioxidant that helps to regenerate and repair skin, the grapes hide the flavor of the kale. The lime is also full of vitamin C and adds a refreshing zest to the yummy, green smoothie.

Ingredients:
1 cup grapes
1 cup of water (can also use coconut water or tea for added health benefits)
1/2 cup kale
Juice from half a lime

Apple Pie Smoothie: What's fall like without apple pie? And with this smoothie, you can have some without any of the guilt. Of course, an apple a day keeps the doctor away, but the skin glowing secret in this is the maple syrup, which is full of zinc, a mineral that helps keep skin healthy and prevent aging.

Ingredients:
1 apple, sliced
1 cup almond milk
1/2 tablespoon maple syrup
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp vanilla

Pumpkin Spice Latte Smoothie: The secret ingredient in this fall favorite...cauliflower! I took a note from Aloha and their Secret Ingredient Sugar Cookie Smoothie for the idea. A perfect vegetable to add to a smoothie, the flavor is so mild that you can't even taste it. And with the pumpkin, it makes a creamy, healthy, and filling version of the restaurant variety. A vitamin A powerhouse, pumpkin contains beta-carotene, an antioxidant that helps keeps skin moist and supple.
