With the onset of your menopausal years, you may be working less and have more time for yourself. Paradoxically, your hormones are sabotaging you: reducing your sex drive, energy levels and other mental and physical aspects you need to enjoy yourself.

Though many women will opt to take estrogen therapy or use an estrogen cream, botanicals and foods can also be an effective way to achieve the same results as bio identical hormones.

Feed yourself meals that increase menopause libido such as the smoothie recipe below.

Ty this delicious smoothie bowl for breakfast to reduce PMS symptoms, support adrenal health, and improve sleep quality.

Collagen Peptides-collagen peptides are my favorite protein powders to add to smoothies and elixirs. The amino acids in the collagen peptides are really good at supporting skin, joint and digestive health. I love that they don’t affect the texture or flavor when you add them to drinks like other whey and plant based protein powders do. You can purchase collagen peptide protein powder from vital proteins here.

Coconut-lowers cholesterol by promoting its conversion to pregnenolone, a molecule that is a precursor to many of the hormones our bodies need.

Maca-is a root from Peru that helps support the entire endocrine system. It’s really helpful for boosting libido, energy and mental clarity.

Cherry Berry Smoothie To Balance Hormones

Cordyceps- is a medicinal mushroom that really effective at increasing your energy if you take it everyday. It’s great to add into your smoothies and elixirs if you have adrenal fatigue or thyroid issues.

Chia Seeds-are high in omega three, soluble fibre, and trace minerals. Adding chia to your smoothies can help keep your blood sugar balanced which is very important for balancing hormones.

I hope you’ll love this smoothie bowl!
