Elle Macpherson's Super Elixir Smoothies

Elle Macpherson. Original supermodel with the body of a glamazon and the mind of an entrepreneur. Sports Illustrated Model. Bombshell. Businesswoman extraordinaire. Owner of Welleco. I am such a fan of this stunner and her achievements. At the age of 52 she still has THAT BOD. And I loooooove all of her products from the range. Especially the nourishing protein powders. These awesome powders are the perfect blend of healthy and sweet, full of vitamins and minerals and contain lots of alkalizing super-greens. 

As a working mum, Elle has learnt that life is all about balance, and that she constantly needs to be mindful of her skin's needs and the pH levels within her body. She says, "I don't define myself by my weight, dress size or circumference. I define myself by my joy factor, so I do things that will make my heart sing."

The Secret To Her Inner Glow

Before switching to an alkaline diet, Elle ate more carbs like risotto, pasta and red meat. Now, the greener, the better. Her favourite vegetables are beets, spinach leaves and egg plant. But Elle also has a major sweet tooth, and is a self-proclaimed chocoholic. She indulges in a piece of dark chocolate and also has en espresso coffee every morning. It's all about being committed to balance.

Elle ensures that she regularly meditates and exercises, and prefers to use her mornings to be productive and stay off social media. Nowadays, she says that her wellness practice is not a program that has to be followed rigidly. She loves paddle boarding with her sons, surfing, doing yoga and pilates, skiing and running. And Elle is diligent about her supplements as well. She loves taking Welleco's Nourishing Protein Powder, which contains a range of vitamins and minerals, and makes a great healthy snack.

Here are three favourite smoothies that Elle makes on a daily basis.

1. Skin Glow Smoothie

1/2 cup coconut water
2 cups spinach leaves
1/2 cup frozen pineapple chunks
1 mango
2 teaspoons Alkalizing Greens (Super Elixir)

This smoothie is loaded with vitamins and minerals to help with liver detox. When he liver is in trouble, it often shows on our skin. This smoothie is also full of carotenoids, which help the skin glow and fight the ageing process. High in vitamins A and C.

2. Protein Breakfast Smoothie

1 heaped scoop chocolate Nourishing Powder
2 teaspoons The Alkalizing Greens (The Super Elixir)
Handful fresh berries (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries)
1/2 frozen banana
1 scoop organic probiotic yogurt
300ml almond milk

Blend and enjoy.

3. The 3pm Pick-Me-Up Shake

Love, Elle xo
