Spa Cuisine: Sweetheart Smoothie/Masque – Recipe

Talk about an all-purpose recipe! This delicious, healthful smoothie not only tastes great (and looks very Valentine-y), it can also be applied to your face, where the alpha-hydroxy acid-rich ingredients will smooth and soften your skin. Gives a whole new meaning to the word “smoothie!”

The recipe makes enough for a good-sized drink as well as a generous masque for beautifying winter-tired skin!


¼ cup low-fat plain yogurt
½ cup low-fat milk
1 cup fresh or frozen raspberries
1 cup raspberry sorbet

1.Combine all ingredients in a blender; blend to desired consistency.

2. Pour yourself a glassful to enjoy.

3. Apply the remainder to your face, massaging gently into the skin. Allow mask to remain on for several minutes before rinsing with warm water.

4. Gently towel face dry.
