Green Smoothie- Hormonal Balancer

May 16, 2017

Esme:

I haven’t blogged on this site for over a year. Last year was extremely busy for me. I had my first trial, and afterwards it seemed it took me the rest of the year to recover. I’ve switched jobs, and my sister’s had a baby. We’ve been enjoying life, and cooking, but we somehow haven’t made it on this blog. I still greatly enjoy cooking as a hobby, and if you follow us on instagram at (thencomescooking) then you know! Anyways, I’ll try to come on here more and post a few recipes that you guys are more interested in. Thanks for reading and checking in with us.

I’ve been into smoothies lately. This one is a very basic smoothie that will help you keep balanced hormones, will help you keep a regular digestive tract, keep you feeling full, and will provide a large amount of protein. The avocado adds vitamin K, Folate, Vitamin C, Potassium, Vitamin B5, Vitamin B6, and Vitamin E. The protein powder I use is soy-free, plant based, and provides several amino acids, on top of 20 grams of protein. Enjoy.

A diet high in fiber helps reduce risk of constipation, heart disease, and possibly cancer. Plus the  fiber keeps you full and can help you lose weight. Bananas have high potassium content and they are an essential mineral for maintaining normal blood pressure and heart function.

Protein Shake with Almonds and Coconut Milk

Protein Shake with Almonds and Coconut Milk

 

E: This recipe was inspired by Gwyneth’s recipe “homemade almond milk.” This protein shake does in fact resemble horchata as Gwyneth’s recipe suggests. I mixed this with cinnamon, coconut milk and some agave to add some “horchata” taste. This is a protein blaster! Great for an energy booster.
