Vitamin A smoothie

Vitamin A smoothie

Powering up for the day is important, yet we too often skip a good, healthy breakfast and opt for coffee and a roll instead. This fast forward through the most important meal of the day is more detrimental than you realize. 

Rather than skating through the early hours in a fog, take time to make this deliciously sweet smoothie and watch a better day unfold. 

Focusing on vitamin A, this fresh smoothie features carrots, banana, and sweet potatoes, all blended together with chia seeds and milk. It blasts you with vitamin A for a whole host of health benefits, especially where your hair is concerned.

Vitamin A is an essential vitamin and is needed by every human for proper growth, immunity, organ function and more. Vitamin A is an antioxidant that protects the body from damage from free radicals. While it’s doing this, it also acts as a hormone in the body, keeping many vital functions on track.

For your hair, vitamin A plays a vital role in cell growth and health. It also keeps the production of hair oil, or sebum, on track. This is key to keeping your hair moisturized and lush. Think of vitamin A as a natural conditioner for your hair, working from the inside out.

Let’s get started and jump start your morning with healthy choices that will keep you on track all day long. This smoothie is sure to do the trick! 

Vitamin A smoothie

Ingredients:

½ large sweet potato

½ banana

½ carrot

1 spoon full chia seeds, soaked

½ cup milk

Directions:

To make this more feasible for the morning, bake the sweet potato in the oven until soft and tender the night before. Then let it cool by refrigerating overnight.

First thing in the morning, soak the chia seeds in water for at least 20 minutes.

After your chia seeds have soaked, add all ingredients together in blender and mix until smooth.
