So what's the recipe for these hormone balancing smoothies for menopause??
Fruit: use 1/2 banana and 1/3 cup berries or cherries
Vegetables: Use a cup of mixed salad greens or spinach. Add 1/4 red pepper, 1/3 cucumber, and 1/2 carrot if desired.
Liquid: Use 2/3 cup coconut water, hot tea, milk, or nut milk. Warm the liquid to make your smoothie more metabolism boosting
Superfoods & Healthy Flavor: 2 Tablespoons flax seeds, 1-2 Tsp chia seeds, 1 oz goji berries, a sprinkle of cinnamon, a slice of ginger root, 1-2 Tablespoons raw cacao powder, a pinch of sea salt, a splash of vanilla
Protein: My favorite protein powders are Pea protein and grass fed Whey protein. 1-2 pastured eggs are delicious as well
Sweetener: Optional! But if you like it more sweet add 5 drops of stevia, a squirt of sweetfruit drops, a date, or 1T maple syrup.
Healthy Fats: 2 tsp or more of coconut oil, 2-4 brazil nuts, 1/4 of an avocado
Herb powders or capsules: Toss them in the blender
Put all ingredients in a powerful blender - and blend well.
Add more liquid for a more watery smoothie.. and add more avocado or chia seeds for a thicker smoothie.
When serving... sprinkle chopped nuts and raw cacao nibs over the top - squirt on your favorite herbal tinctures - then chew each mouthful well.
