Try this delicious, creamy smoothie that provides calming, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant nutrients from apple, carrot, fennel and cucumber to assist with the discomfort of eczema. Avocado provides vitamin E, and borage or evening primrose oil contains important essential fatty acids needed for skin repair.


1 large apple

1 large carrot

½ bulb fennel

¼ medium-sized cucumber

½ ripe avocado

1 borage-seed-oil capsule or evening-primrose-oil capsule

Juice the apple, carrot, fennel and cucumber, in their entirety, in a juicer before transferring the combined juices to a blender. Add the avocado flesh and the contents of your chosen oil capsule, then whizz until smooth.

Serve over ice if desired for a soothing summer sup. Mmmmm mmmm.
