I love coming up with new smoothie recipes! It’s so much fun to think of all the possible yummy Flo-food combinations. It’s a little science experiment in your kitchen. As you know, I like to keep the rest of my meal planning super simple, but my smoothies are where I like to get creative and experimental! And, as I always have your health first in my thoughts, I wanted to come up with the ultimate smoothie recipes that truly bring to life the idea of using good food as your medicine.
So I got out my prescription pad and jotted down the best treatments in the form of tasty fruit, veggie and nut blends (plus some other surprising ingredients!) that will help to heal your PMS, fatigue, low libido and infertility issues.
Tip: Embrace the smoothie bowl trend and blend half of the recipes’ ingredients to pour on top of the unblended other half. Great for breakfast or a snack!
My favorite smoothie remedy recipes to balance your hormones
The Pumpkin Spice PMS Prescription
This smoothie will banish your PMS sugar cravings by replacing an impending Oreo binge with good, wholesome sugars from pumpkin and dates. Plus the blend of fruits and veggies will help your body get rid of the excess estrogen in your body that is the cause of PMS symptoms.
Canned, organic pumpkin puree
Dried apricots or dates
The No-Coffee Coffee Energy Elixir
If you find yourself sluggish after waking up, this is the perfect morning coffee alternative that will also give you sustained, slow-release energy til lunch. So much better for you than a Starbucks ice blended mocha.
Raw oats soaked overnight
The Passion Pour for Low Libido
If your sex drive is a distant memory, this smoothie is for you. Packed with real aphrodisiacs that actually work (read more here on why) – you’ll be feeling sexy in no time. Warning: this smoothie might make you late for work.
Pinch of cayenne pepper
The Be Fruitful Fertility Fix
If your fertility is flagging and you’re hoping to get pregnant – this is your smoothie. A big boost of folic acid from the spinach, a whole host of vitamins and minerals, zinc from the seeds, plus natural bee product Royal Jelly, which feeds the queen bee and helps her deliver all her babies for the hive! Royal Jelly increases the level of luteinizing hormone, promoting consistent and healthy ovulation.
Always remember, that once you have the right information about how your body really works, you can start making health choices that finally start to work for you! You can do this – the science of your body is on your side!
