My Favorite Green Juice Recipe: Miraval Spa’s Junelle Lupiani

The nutritionist of the top Arizona spa shares this green juice or smoothie shot for super-hydrated skin.

Green juice recipe Junelle Lupiani, RD, the nutrition supervisor at the transformational Miraval Resort, regularly customizes guest meals based on your goals.

But pretty much everyone who visits the five-star resort (or lives on the planet) benefits from this smoothie shot that contains “six servings of vegetables and fruit in one drink,” Lupiani says.

Especially those whose skin is drying up this time of year. Plants are about 70 percent water, says Lupiani, which is vital for skin health.

“Additionally, these green veggies and fruit are rich in flavonoids and carotenoids, both of which have strong antioxidant properties to help keep skin clear. They’re also considered anti-inflammatory foods, which have been shown to reduce puffiness,” she says.

Here’s the simple Miraval recipe for hydrating your winter skin from the inside.

Miraval’s Clear, Ageless Skin Smoothie

2 cups cucumber, skin on
1 cup Granny Smith apple, cored
1 heart of romaine lettuce, about 6 oz.
1/2 cup fresh pineapple

Combine in a heavy juicer or blender, and process on high speed until smooth and frothy.
