Healthy Anti-Stress Smoothie

I have heard that some people like to eat a lot of sweets (even non-sweet food) when they are stressed… In fact most of them say it’s one of the reasons why they gain a lot of weight! It’s the opposite for me, because I don’t have a big appetite when I am stressed unless I am really hungry. This Anti-Stress Smoothie recipe is a better option instead of having a sickeningly sweet ice cream or cake. I modified this simple recipe that I got from Kitchen Living blender manual. It’s great for light supper 🙂

HEALTHY ANTI-STRESS SMOOTHIE : Vegetarian

Health Benefits: Banana is known to be rich in potassium. It helps overcome depression because of “high levels of tryptophan, which is converted into serotonin — the happy-mood brain neurotransmitter”. It helps regulate blood sugar, aids in digestion, and many other health benefits. Yogurt is great for overall health. It helps with digestion thereby optimizing the nutrients we get from the food we eat. Bluerries are high in anti-oxidants. Soy (milk) is one good source of protein. Blackstrap molasses is high in iron, is great for heart and bone health, helps in boosting body energy, a good source of antioxidants as well, and many other benefits.
