Functional Foods Highlight

After reading our article about foods that can help PMS, you now know how important calcium, magnesium, and fiber are to kicking those symptoms goodbye. So we made a smoothie that not only tastes delicious but has almost all the fiber, calcium and magnesium you need for the day. Plus, it’s chocolate which always puts a smile on my face, even during my most irritable moments.

Food Farmacy

  • Chocolate protein or collagen powder
  • 1 hefty spoonful of nut butter (See the "From the Doc" comment at the bottom of the page for options)
  • 2 tablespoons ground flax seeds
  • ½ frozen or fresh banana
  • 1 cup nut milk of choice
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder (option - makes it extra chocolatey and adds additional zinc, magnesium and calcium)
  • Handful of spinach

Directions

Blend all ingredients together and enjoy!

From the Chef:

Have fun with toppings! cocoa nibs, fresh fruit and toasted coconut are some to name a few!

From the Doc:

If you want an extra boost of magnesium, go for almond butter. Or for a more neutral flavor and creamy texture, choose cashew butter.
