Bdelicious Beauty Bars
Not only are they a fantastic, yummy, healthy snack. They are also the perfect treat for your skin, hence the name beauty bars! The addition of the fabulous Berry complex to this recipe means they are even more packed full of antioxidants that help boost collagen and your skins radiance! Oh and did I mention they are nut free, vegan, raw, dairy free, gluten free, refined sugar free and most importantly delicious!!!!
They also include my favourite food in the world avocado!! I love avocado and eat it almost every day, it is so important to get good fats in your diet, these fats are great for your skin. Avocados are rich in healthy fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants that can improve your skin from the inside. I have topped these beauty bars with bee pollen which is a nutrient powerhouse of 18 vitamins, turbo-charged Bee Pollen helps to improve strength, endurance and recovery after exercise. Many top athletes use it to improve their performance! They are also topped with the fabulous Goji berries, these little beauties are known in Tibet as a ‘key to eternal youth’, Goji Berries are powerhouses of vitamins, minerals and health-giving carbohydrates and protein.
