Gut & Hormone Loving Smoothie

Updated: Jan 24, 2023

Because I'm a busy working mum, smoothies are the bomb!

Nutrition in a glass, quick and easy to prepare and sometimes consumed on the run!

So what's in it?


Full Fat Coconut Milk: Healthy fats are necessary in order to manufacture sex hormones. In addition, fat helps to keep blood sugar stable. Unbalanced blood sugar is a recipe for hormonal disaster. Coconut is one of the most fibre-rich foods available. Not only does the gut love fibre and it helps to keep bowel motions regular...it is vital in order for us to eliminate excess estrogen.

Greenish Banana: Rich in resistant starch which our gut bacteria love. Good gut microbiome = hormone love

Cacao Powder: Rich in magnesium, fibre and antioxidants All necessary for happy hormones


Nut Butter: A source of healthy fat (peanut/almond/macadamia butter)


Ceylon Cinnamon: Helps to regulate blood sugar


Protein Powder: Protein is critical to hormone health as it helps to regulate blood sugar levels. I like vegan protein powders because they don't contain whey or casein which many people are sensitive to.

Collagen Powder: Helps to heal and seal the lining of your digestive tract


Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbs Ayam Full Fat Coconut Milk

  • 1 tsp Ceylon Cinnamon

  • 1 heaped Tbsp cacao powder

  • 1 serve Protein Powder

  • 1.5 Tbsp Nutra Organics Collagen

  • 1 heaped Tbsp 100% Natural Nut Butter

  • 1/2 unripe banana

  • Water - add enough to achieve the consistency you like

Directions:

Add everything to a high speed blender, blend and enjoy

Tip: Add everything to your smoothie blender the night before and then blitz it up for brrekky (saves time if you are on the run in the morning)
