{pms smoothie}

The other day I was flipping channels and happened upon the show, Doctors.  Have you seen it? I never have.  I would have kept flipping, but just as I tuned in, they were showing a recipe to cure PMS.  Of course, I had to watch. Now, I think if it were a true cure, then there would be much more hype and it, but I can see the validity in the drink actually reducing symptoms. 

Study after study was conducted regarding PMS.  A result of the surveys, case studies and research was a PMS Smoothie.  Of course you'll have used these ingredients before, if you've ever attempted a smoothie, but apparently the blend of these items together is the key. This nutritious drink if full of magnesium, calcium and vitamin C. 

• 1 cup low-fat yogurt
• 8 oz. orange juice
• 1 cup fresh strawberries
• 1 banana
• 1 tablespoon molasses (or to taste)

Add ingredients to blender and blend approximately 45 seconds. Add ice if necessary. 

What I love about this smoothie, is it uses all natural ingredients (not powders, fillers, etc.) ...just the way I like it.

Come on...admit it.  You've been there before: moody, anxious, tense, bloated... So, when it's that time of month - try this (and then let me know what you thought)!! 

Happy Monday Lovelies {hope you all had a splendid weekend}!

Haha - this is too funny! My husband will be happy that there is an alleged PMS cure. As for me, I'm just happy for an excuse to have smoothies :)

oh gosh, who hasn't been there? thanks for the recipe, it's definitely worth trying, plus you can't really go wrong with the fruit (even if you still feel cranky after)
