Smoothie Recipe For Menstrual Cramps

Are you a lady that suffers every month from that special time? Looking for natural answers to monthly discomfort? I'm right there with you!

While lamenting on the phone the other day with a girlfriend, I told her how I was going tot he store to buy a certain fruit for my cramps. she told me about a smoothie recipe that was amazing for menstrual cramps. I asked her where she got it and she said that she got it from me!

It's funny how we sometimes forget what we know. Our wonderful and amazingly patient friends are there to remind us of what we know!

In this lens, I will share a wonderful smoothie recipe for cramps that I told a friend about and then forgot! I'm glad that she reminded me because this works great on menstrual cramps.

This smoothie for cramps tastes great and works fast!

But If You're In A Hurry, These Work Great Too!

This is the one I have at home. I'm not sure what is the difference between the blue and the purple packaging.

This is amazing for the low back pain that happens during the monthly cycle. I don't always have the low back pain every month, but when I do, this works great. The oil is soothing and has a pleasant but not too strong aroma.

Also, rub a little bit of Arnica Massage Oil on temples for tension headaches.

I recently discovered that if you rub this arnica massage oil on your abdominal area, it does also help with menstrual cramps. I swear, this Weleda arnica massage oil is a major gift to women! I'm not joking!

What You Need To Make A Cramp Smoothie!

Tools And Ingredients To Make A Cramp Smoothie

1. A Vitamix or a very good blender

2. 5 Fresh ripe pineapple spears

3. 2 Ripe bananas (organic if you can)

4. Fresh organic spinach (A Handful)

5. Coconut milk drink (3-4cups) or fresh raw almond or coconut milk if you're on a raw food diet.

.

Vitamix or Blender!

 

Bananas!

Bananas are choke full of Potassium and Magnesium which help with muscle cramping and pain from uterine contractions.

Spinach! - Eat Your Spinach!

Since Spinach is an amazing source of vitamins, minerals and chlorophyll, it's a natural ingredient for relief of pain and cramps.

What's so nice about using Spinach in a smoothie is that since it has a mild flavor, it easily takes on the flavor of the fruits you add to the smoothie.

Fresh Pineapple

Pineapple on its own is very effective in getting menstrual cramps under control. Bromelain, an enzyme in Pineapple is a natural muscle relaxant. It helps with menstrual pain and discomfort related to the sometimes painful contractions of the uterus.

How To Cut Open A Pineapple

Coconut Milk or Raw Almond Milk

I was in a hurry so I bought this. You can also use Almond milk.

Layering The Ingredients

Typically, it's a good idea to put the softest ingredients at the bottom and the hardest ones on top so you can push them down with your tamper (Vitamix pushing tool) if you need to.

For this smoothie, I like to put the Spinach in first, then I break up the two bananas and then put the pineapple on top of that.

Next, I pour my coconut (or raw almond milk) beverage till its at about the 3-4 cup level on my Vitamix.

Cover the top and make sure your on the lowest setting. Fire it up and push down the fruit with your tamper if you need to. Or you can add more of the liquid to make it mix easier.

Watch the mixture turn into a beautiful green smoothie.

Beautiful Green Smoothie!

Drink Up!
