Smoothie Recipe to Ease PMS Symptoms

Sip Away PMS Symptoms With This Chocolate Cashew Smoothie

During your period, it's not at all unusual to sit on the couch with a heating pad and an enormous bowl of chocolate anything. Food cravings are impossible to ignore, but devouring an entire dessert is probably not going to make you feel better. Just the opposite, in fact: you're likely to feel more tired and bloated. Luckily, our creamy, chocolaty smoothie satisfies sugary cravings while also easing PMS symptoms.

The smoothie is made with Greek yogurt and chocolate soy milk to not only satisfy chocolate cravings but also provide calcium, which has been shown to help reduce PMS. There's also fiber-rich spinach, full of B vitamins such as riboflavin and thiamine, proven to decrease PMS symptoms. The banana and cashews offer magnesium, which relieves bloating and constipation and also eases cramps. Then throw in some avocado, since studies show healthy fats can also reduce symptoms, and sip PMS goodbye.
