Hormone Balancing Smoothie

smoothie for healthy hormones and PCOS

Are you a female struggling with hormone imbalance? Are you sick of eating gross, weird foods? Or feel like you’re forcing yourself to eat things you just don’t want.

Balancing your hormones doesn’t mean you have to eat flavorless food.

In fact, I love using food as medicine! And, nutrition plays a major role in our hormone regulation.

You deserve to enjoy your food and have healthy hormones! So, I am going to share my all-time favorite hormone balancing recipe. Hint, hint…. it’s a smoothie.

To make you feel even better about this, I’ll tell you that my hormone balancing smoothie has been loved by many females (including myself!).

This has a rich chocolate taste with a creamy texture that will keep you wanting more! I want to show you that it can be easy and fun to bring balance back to your body!

Below are three highlighted benefits of this smoothie.

Top Hormone Benefits

1. Maca:

Maca is a root that can help to balance hormone levels, help libido and increase energy.

2. Cacao:

Cacao, helps to reduce secretion of stress hormones. This means less stress = happier hormones.

3. Nut butter:

Nut butter falls within the category of healthy fats. In order for your hormones to operate optimally, you need to be eating plenty of healthy fats. Start the day off right with some good fats in this hormone balancing smoothie!
