I just finished 2 days of shooting with Lifetime Moms.  I created some great food recipes featuring everything from Superfoods to Wok Cooking that will run next year, but I wanted to share one today.

 A PMS Smoothie-yes, a PMS smoothie.  What I like about it is that its a good natural way to relieve those symptoms that time of the month, but it’s super tasty and really good anytime.

What you’ll need:

(makes 2 smoothies)

1 cup of plain organic yogurt

1 Banana sliced

1/2 cup Pineapple juice

Cinnamon

Pumpkin seeds

Ice

Studies have shown that eating foods rich in B Vitamins and Calcium can help relieve PMS symptoms. Yogurt helps balance your calcium levels and help with mood and bloating. Bananas have B vitamins which can help regulate blood sugar and help your mood and is also a good source of potassium and fiber-which is good for PMS.  Pineapple Juice-has the enzyme Bromelain and can help with cramps by relaxing muscles. Cinnamon-a great cure all, gives it a little spice and is good for mood swings.  Pumpkin Seeds have Zinc which can ease cramps, and vitamin E to help reduce inflammation.

Just blend all ingredients together.  Use frozen bananas, if you use room temperature bananas just add ice.  Top with a pinch of cinnamon and some pumpkins seeds.

PS If you want your husband to drink it -you probably don’t want to call it a PMS smoothie.  How about A Tropical Spice Smoothie!
