Gwyneth Paltrow's expensive tastes also apply to her smoothies.
The Iron Man actress' lifestyle website Goop shared a recipe this week for a morning smoothie, and the ingredients don't come cheap. "Gwyneth drinks one of these every morning, whether or not she’s detoxing," reads the blog post. "Choose your Moon Juice moon dust depending on what the day ahead holds -- brain before a long day at the office, sex dust before a date."
But this Moon Juice alone will set you back $65, and it's all sold out on Goop. The smoothie also calls for the fungus Cordyceps, which can cost about $35. In addition, maca ($25), ashwagandha ($17) and he shou wu ($18) come with a hefty price tag, but as Vanity Fair points out, the smoothie itself is not all that expensive when you take into account how much of these expensive products go into the concoction.
While you would have to shell out quite a bit of cash for all the ingredients, it's only a little over $10 for each individual smoothie once everything is measured. Ten dollars still seems quite steep for a smoothie, but Paltrow stands by her drink, even offering up variations.
"You have to buzz it on high, so it [the coconut oil] really kind of melts into it; otherwise, you get little bits of cold coconut oil...And by the way, this is an extremely basic version," she demonstrated (via Refinery 29). "You can put in bananas or berries. Sometimes I put in half of a sweet potato and make like a little pumpkin pie smoothie. And that’s really it."
We wonder if Paltrow has turned her famous friends onto her Moon Juice breakfast. The 43-year-old actress hosted a luncheon on Sunday in support of Goop's new skincare line, and Drew Barrymore, Reese Witherspoon and Cameron Diaz were among the guests. "The love is deep," Paltrow captioned a pic of her pals.
