Sun Shake

Total time: 5 minutes Makes: 1 serving

➜ Certain foods act like SPF in different ways: Green tea contains catechin antioxidants, which have been shown to enhance DNA repair and reduce skin cancer risk, while carrots and mangoes pack beta-carotene and vitamin C, which may prevent UV-induced damage. Chia seeds have omega-3s that help keep skin moisturized, preventing dryness that comes with sun exposure. This shake combines all these ingredients in one delicious pre-beach treat. Sip before heading out into the sun, but you’ll still want to slather on the SPF and wear a widebrimmed hat.
