Good Food Friday: Homemade hormone therapy smoothie

Today’s recipe is one we absolute love! It’s something our friend, Fiona Harrington from @fihealthnut has whipped up to take care of our precious hormones.

“When it comes to my own health, I find that I’m always experiencing magnesium deficiency related symptoms. Bad period pain, shakes, headaches and a sluggish bowel. Oigh. This smoothie is my saviour. Maca to balance the hormones, cacao for a hit of antioxidants, avocado for glutathione and magnesium powder to rid the pain and shakes”

You will need:

1 banana
1 tsp. cacao powder
1 tsp. maca powder
1/4 of an avocado
1 tsp. magnesium powder
2 cups almond milk
Caramelised buckinis, banana chunks and avocado for garnish.

Blend all ingredients into a high speed blender until smooth.
