A Magical Blend Of Sweetness!
The beautiful creamy creation I offer today is an all around wellness drink- delicious, nourishing and easy! Another awesome addition to your favorite list is the Sweet Dreams With a Cherry On Top Smoothie! A mouth-watering blend of cherries and bananas, which are perfect fruits for a smoothie with all the natural sweetness they provide. The taste is what I call magic!
This smoothie is packed with nutrients to make your body in great shape. You can even add protein, which is ideal for a post work out indulgence.
One powerful benefit of this smoothie is its anti-inflammatory aid that is an excellent way to restore and strengthen the muscles. Plus, the most natural and tasty sleep aid I would ever recommend. Bananas contain a high amount of magnesium, a calming mineral. Soy milk contains trytophan, the sleep-inducing amino acid. And of course, the vibrant cherries, which are great sources of melatonin- the sleep hormone. Allow me to give you more health benefits from this superfood, the cherry….
Why count sheep when you can just enjoy this delicious sleep-inducing smoothie instead? Let’s get it on!
