Be Beautiful at Any Age with Superfruit Smoothies (Breville x Whatever Eva)

Wednesday, May 9, 2012

Today’s celebrity-driven culture can often appear obsessed by youth, with scant regard for the older generation on the planet. Yet by the end of this century, it’s estimated that the number of older people in the world will exceed the number of children. On April 7, World Health Day will be drawing attention to how everyday good health can not only add years to your life-span, but also help men and women of all ages extend their ‘active involvement in all levels of society.’

For women across the world, when it comes to ageing, beauty is one of the biggest concerns. The most significant, current trend in the anti-ageing market is ‘beauty from within’, which is shifting attention from crèmes and serums, to what we put into our bodies on a daily basis. Did you know that what we eat forms the building blocks for our skin, hair and nails, yet until recently the beauty industry has focused on topical regimes? Now a growing number of superfruits are leading the new fusion of health and beauty.

Superfruits have high nutritional value and high anti-oxidant capacity, yet their exotic nature can make it difficult to include them in our daily diets.  A quick and easy way to add a healthy boost to your day is to create a superfruit smoothie in a Breville Blender. Here’s a simple smoothie recipe to kick-start your new beauty regime, with tips on how to get the most out of this ultra-healthy drink:  
Superfruit Smoothie Recipe

  • ½ cup sliced strawberries
  • ½ cup blueberries
  • ½ cup raspberries
  • ¼ cup blackberries
  • 1 cup of water

Blend together all of the ingredients at high speed until smooth. Then add 2 teaspoons of flaxseed oil, sitting in by hand.


  • Make the most out of your fruit by freezing your fruit on the day of purchasing. Peel and slice them beforehand so they can easily be added to a blender, remembering to add less water to maintain a smooth and thick mixture.
  • Whey protein is fantastic for rebuilding damaged muscles and tissue. Add once the ingredients are blended together to avoid damaging the delicate compound.
  • Adding 2 tablespoons of lecithin to your smoothie will help to boost your memory. Pronounced ‘less-a-thin’, this is available as granules or liquid.
