Aunt Flow likes to visit every month, and while she is a natural process in life, most of us aren't fans. Check out this smoothie recipe for some relief before she packs her bags and leaves
The base is Raspberry Leaf Tea that’s been brewed and chilled. Some moms might know this from being pregnant to try and induce labor. It has antispasmodic properties (supresses muscle spasm) that helps with cramping.
The flaxseed has essential fatty acid that also helps relieves symptoms and aid in proper grandular function (hormome balance).
The kiwi and spinach are high in calcium for backache, cramping and nervousness. The higher magnesium contents in these foods, also helps you absorb the calcium. Banana’s potassium and B6 help with water retention, not to mention have the right sweetness to kill the sugar craving.
- 1 Cup of cooled Raspberry Leaf Tea (less or more depending on how thick you like your smoothies)
- 1 tablespoon flaxseeds
- 2 kiwis peeled
- 1 cup frozen mango
- half a banana
- 1 cup spinach
- handful of ice cubes
Blend smooth and enjoy!
