April is Stress Awareness Month, as with the school year winding down, most parents can feel it! But it’s not just parents that are feeling the stress. Across the board, Americans are living with more and more stress. Thankfully, there is a lot that you can do with diet and nutrition to help manage it.
This Raspberry “Cream” (dairy-free!) Smoothie packs a nutritional punch, as it is brimming with antioxidants, healthy fats, magnesium and probiotics! It takes care of you from the inside out. It’s a great snack for between meals and also makes a quick breakfast that you can take on the go. This recipe uses coconut-milk yogurt for the base, which is perfect for those who are sensitive to dairy or have digestive issues, but you can also substitute any non-dairy milk or yogurt of your choice.
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 0 minutes
1 cup organic raspberries, frozen
6 ounces vanilla-flavored coconut-milk yogurt with probiotics
1 teaspoon Raspberry-Lemon Flavor Natural Calm
1 cup ice
