Berry Balancing Smoothie: Healing Hormone Imbalance

A while back I gave you 5 reasons to love coconut. In case you missed that post you can read it here.

As the weather warms up ( I am in NYC this week and it’s hot and humid!) here is a quick recipe you can use to get more coconut and tame hormone imbalance. Plus it’s a great way to start the day.

Berry Balancing Smoothie for fighting hormone imbalance

  • 1/2 cup organic frozen berries ( I use blackberries and raspberries).
  • 1/4 teaspoon Maca powder
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk (I like to use 1/2 cup coconut milk, half cup coconut cream to make it extra rich and yummy. I like to use the a brand that is organic uses BPA free cans)
  • 1 scoop chocolate flavored protein powder. I like to use a brand that does not have whey or Soy  – but does not taste grainy and blends really smooth.
  • Handful of ice cubes

Throw into a strong blender like a Vitamix and enjoy! 

recipe for healing hormone imbalance

  • Berries are a low glycemic fruit, that won’t spike your blood sugar in the AM but they have a ton of antioxidants. Keeping you insulin levels low also helps with pcos and belly fat.
  • Maca contains adaptogen which is a great remedy for reproductive hormone imbalance (estrogen in women AND testosterone in men) and boosting energy levels. I like to use one that is gelatinized with clients – because there is less starch, making it easier to digest and absorb.
  • Coconut balances your endocrine system in addition to all the great benefits (healing hormone imbalance, making your skin glow).  It also is also a great way to stop curb sugar cravings naturally.
  • Protein balances blood sugar
