Warm chamomile tea with honey is a good sleep aid and has been used for decades, but this creamy smoothie with a touch of warming spices is just as effective. Bananas and almonds are rich in magnesium, which is an antidote to stress and a powerful relaxation mineral, while nutmeg is a sedative. Therefore, by maximizing your intake of natural magnesium just before bedtime, you’re more likely to sleep better.

You can also add a quality magnesium powder supplement (which you can find at all good health food stores) if you suffer from insomnia or your child has trouble sleeping or suffers from growing pains. Sleep tight!

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 ripe banana, peeled
2 tablespoons raw almonds
1 tablespoon linseeds
pinch ground nutmeg
125-250ml filtered water
1 teaspoon cold-pressed coconut oil
1/2 teaspoon ground vanilla or vanilla extract

Method

  1. Roughly chop the banana and add it to a blender along with the rest of the ingredients.
  2. Blend on a high speed until completely smooth. Taste and adjust the consistency to your liking by adding more water if necessary.
  3. Pour into a medium-sized glass (as featured in the photo) or two small ones and serve at room temperature to avoid shocking your body right before bedtime.

Tip

  • Brown rice protein powder is also rich in magnesium and is a great addition to increase the overall nutritional value and keep you from waking up hungry during the night.
