DIY FUN: Anti-Aging Smoothies

Not that long ago, I had mentioned that I’d like to start a DIY-at-home-Spa for myself.  It’s been several days now, and I still haven’t pampered myself (other than with chocolate!).  It’s time!

Every so often, I’ll be posting Spa Treatments that you and I can both try.  Of course, you’ll have to note:

  • I am NOT a doctor; make sure you test each treatment on a patch of skin first
  • I do not endorse any of the suggested treatments
  • if you choose to try any of these suggested treatments, you do so AT YOUR OWN RISK
  • My Bits and Bleeps will not be held liable for ANY outcome of ANY of the suggested spa treatments … you are invited to do your own research prior to trying any treatment.

Right then.  As stated above, I will periodically post Spa Treatments for us to try.  If you choose to participate by trying to reproduce said treatment in your own home, please feel free to return here and comment about your experiences.

Today I’d like to offer you 2 Anti-Aging Smoothies recipes to try.  Yes, without alcohol!  I figure that we deserve to have a drink in hand while enjoying our moment “in our spa”.

~ Berry Delicious Smoothie ~

This smoothie is creamy. It has a healthy dose of essential fatty acids.

2 1/2 cups soy milk
1 – 1 1/2 cups frozen berries (whichever you prefer)
1 frozen banana
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp flax oil

  1. Remove all fruits from the freezer, allow them to thaw out for 5-10 minutes.  Do not thaw them completely, ensure they are soft enough so as to not damage your blender.
  2. Place all the ingredients in the blender and puree until smooth and creamy.
  3. Enjoy!

Makes 2 – 3 servings.

~ Fruity Smoothie ~

This smoothie is refreshingly cool.

2 1/2 cups orange juice
1 – 1 1/2 cups frozen fruits or berries (whichever you desire)
1 frozen banana (optional)

  1. Allow frozen fruits to thaw out for 5 – 10 minutes. Do not thaw them out completely, ensure they are soft enough to blend without damaging your blender.
  2. Place all ingredients in the blender and puree until smooth.

Makes 2 – 3 servings.

Note: You can add more or less fruit depending on how thick or thin you want it.

  1. I love Smoothies and I am always excited to find some new recipes to incorporate some healthy ingredients. I have recently read that Soy, unless it has been fermented, is carcinogenic and can cause increased estrogen levels. Instead of Soy milk, would Almond milk work the same?

  2. My daughter just learned to make fruit smoothies with flax in her cooking class at school & over spring break her assignment is to make mom one! Her recipe is very similar to the Berry Delicious Smoothie & I’m looking forward to tasting it!
