When your hormones are out of balance, your mood takes a hit. That’s why it’s crucial to support your hormones—they influence every aspect of your day and how you interact with the world. The ingredients in your daily smoothie can play a role in supporting happy hormones, just like the ones in our Happy Hormone Chunky Monkey Smoothie recipe. And trust us, you’re going to love these ingredients.

Key Superfood Ingredients

  • Cacao: This delicious smoothie contains cacao, which is fantastic for women’s hormones. It’s important to choose good-quality form of chocolate, like organic cacao, that hasn’t been heated and processed. Cacao supports our feel-good neurotransmitters and promotes hormone balance. It’s the richest serotonin-based food on the planet and also helps your gut produce more serotonin. That’s why you often crave chocolate right before your period—your body knows what it needs! Just make sure you’re getting the good stuff.
  • Maca: It also contains maca root, which has a mildly nutty flavor with earthy, malty, or butterscotch undertones. Not only does it taste nutty, but it can also help prevent you from feeling “nutty” by balancing mood. Maca root is an adaptogen, meaning it helps the body respond to stress and supports proper physiological function. It assists women in adapting to monthly hormone changes, reducing the severity of symptoms.
  • Spirulina: We sprinkle some spirulina into this smoothie for added nutrients. Spirulina is packed with protein, potassium, calcium, magnesium, niacin, B vitamins, and iron. Did you know that just one tablespoon of spirulina contains more iron than a steak? Vegetarians, rejoice! Getting enough iron helps to combat low iron levels and fatigue.
  • Avocado: Throw in some avocado for healthy fats and antioxidants. It also makes the smoothie smooth like it should be!
  • Chocolate Bone Broth Protein: Finish it off with some chocolate bone broth to build collagen. Collagen helps strengthen us both internally and externally, even assisting with… wrinkles! Which is great because this smoothie will have you beaming.

Blend them all together and enjoy! All these ingredients combine to support happy hormones and a happy body, plus it is so tasty you will forget its good for you!
