Celebrities Swear By These Beautifying Wellness Drink Recipes
Because celebrities are exposed to some of the most knowledgeable, creative, and posh wellness gurus in the world, they wind up with a pretty impressive arsenal of nutrition tips and tricks. That's why whenever we interview a model or actress, we make sure to ask them about their go-to recipes for glowy, ageless skin; flawless digestion; boosted energy; brain power; and more.
The following eight beautifying drink recipes come from celebs whose wellness and beauty game is mad strong, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Miranda Kerr, Yara Shahidi, and more. Keep scrolling to see the smoothies, teas, and juices some of the most beautiful women in the world swear by—and to shop the ingredients yourself!
Gwyneth Paltrow's Adaptogenic Smoothie
According to Goop, Gwyneth drinks this detoxifying, vegan, adaptogenic smoothie every morning. To make it yourself, you'll need the following: 1 cup almond milk, 1 tablespoon almond butter, 1 teaspoon coconut oil, 2 tablespoons vanilla mushroom protein powder, 1 teaspoon maca, 1 teaspoon ashwagandha, 1 teaspoon he shou wu, 1 teaspoon Cordyceps, 1 teaspoon Moon Juice dust of choice (Action Dust, Beauty Dust, Brain Dust, Goodnight Dust, Sex Dust, or Spirit Dust), a pinch of Himalayan sea salt, and a pinch of vanilla powder.
Kiernan Shipka's Matcha Latte
In a recent interview with Chilling Adventures of Sabrina star Kiernan Shipka, the actress told us that she starts her days not with coffee but instead with a "witchy" matcha latte infused with ashwagandha, Cordyceps, and other "mushroomy powders and superpower-y things." (Here are team Byrdie's favourite matcha latte recipes.)
Yara Shahidi's Glow-Inducing Turmeric Juice
Last year, actress Yara Shahidi told us her skincare philosophy is all about taking care of your complexion from the inside out—and juicing is one way she does that. "The juices I make usually feature a lot of ginger, a lime or a lemon, beets, kale, mint, and turmeric, and sometimes a carrot if I'm feeling sweet," she said.
Cardamom, the star ingredient in Persian tea, is another secret weapon she uses for glowy skin. "Cardamom is great for you and has a number of skincare benefits [like vitamin C and boosting circulation]," she told us. "It's really about finding those things, whether it's a tea or juice, that help supplement your skincare routine through your diet. It's about making sure that you internally take of yourself, that you focus on fixing more than what's externally visible."
Lea Michele's Antioxidant Elixir
In contrast to Gwyneth's everything-but-the-kitchen-sink smoothie, Lea Michele once told People that her favorite morning drink involves just five ingredients you probably already have on hand: kale, blueberries, apple, avocado, and ice, blended and served cold. The antioxidant-rich blueberries and kale, plus the heart-healthy fats from the avocado make this a totally fuss-free superfood smoothie.
Meghan Markle's Energy-Boosting Shake
In an interview with The Chalkboard Mag earlier this year, the Dutchess of Sussex broke down her favourite everyday smoothie, which contains a few tasty whole ingredients: 1 packet of shake powder (Markle likes Clean's antioxidant- and protein-rich Daily Cleanse in Vanilla), 1/2 cup of frozen blueberries, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, chia seeds, 1/2 cup almond milk, and 1/2 cup coconut water. The plant protein, omega-3s, and antioxidants in this recipe offer long-lasting energy and immune support, while cinnamon nixes inflammation and coconut water hydrates. Sometimes Markle says she switches up the ingredients by using "frozen mango, a squeeze of lime, and … turmeric (which has unbelievable healing properties!)."
Khloé Kardashian's De-Bloating Ginger Tea
Khloé Kardashian has shared on multiple social media platforms that she swears by ginger tea in the morning for smooth digestion and a flat tummy. "Ginger is incredibly soothing to your digestive system," confirms holistic nutritionist Elissa Goodman. "Whether you have nausea, some sort of discomfort or pain, or even just gas, ginger can help to calm things down within your digestive system." You can buy pre-packaged ginger tea or make your own.
Freida Pinto's Radiance-Boosting Veggie Juice
Actress Freida Pinto once told the UK's Daily Record that the secret to her blindingly radiant skin is (other than #blessed genetics) drinking nutrient-packed juices every day. "I make loads of fresh vegetable juices with coriander or pepper so that it's tastier. The concoction makes my skin glow and is good for the digestive system too," she said. Coriander is an amazing skincare ingredient because it is super rich in folate, antioxidants, vitamin C, and beta-carotene, which protect against oxidative stress and contribute to a soft, glowing complexion.
Miranda Kerr's "Wedding Detox" Smoothie
Before the 35-year-old Aussie model and Kora Organics founder wed Snapchat founder Evan Spiegel last year, she swore by this very green superfood smoothie for beautiful skin and tip-top digestion. The elixir involved 1 cucumber, a bunch of baby spinach, 1 1/2 celery sticks, a handful of kale, a whole small avocado, a handful of blueberries, chocolate protein powder, almond milk, coconut milk, and the Kora Organics Noni Glow skinfood supplement (which is packed with antioxidants from noni, blueberries, and matcha).
