Hormone-balancing morning smoothie


  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or any other plant-based milk of your choice)
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yoghurt (or non-dairy yoghurt for a vegan option)
  • 1/2 cup frozen berries (blueberries, strawberries, or mixed berries)
  • 1/2 ripe banana
  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon hemp seeds
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter or peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon maca powder (known for hormone-balancing properties)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon honey or maple syrup (optional, for added sweetness)
  • Ice cubes (optional)


  • Add all the ingredients to a blender.
  • Blend on high speed until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
  • Taste the smoothie and adjust sweetness if needed by adding honey or maple syrup.
  • Pour the smoothie into a glass and enjoy!

This hormone-balancing morning smoothie contains ingredients that provide essential nutrients like omega-3 fatty acids from flaxseed, chia seeds, and hemp seeds, as well as antioxidants from berries and anti-inflammatory benefits from turmeric. Maca powder is known for its potential hormone-balancing effects, though scientific evidence is still limited.

Why are these ingredients good for your hormonal balance?


Loaded with antioxidants, vitamins, and fiber, berries are nature's gift to our health. Blueberries, strawberries, or a mix of both provide a burst of flavour and help combat oxidative stress, which can impact hormone health.


Creamy and naturally sweet, bananas are a great source of potassium and vitamin B6, which are essential for hormone regulation and nerve function.

Packed with omega-3 fatty acids and fibre, these seeds support heart health and brain function, and aid in hormonal balance.

Greek Yogurt (or Non-Dairy Yogurt)

A rich source of probiotics and protein, Greek yoghurt promotes gut health, which is linked to hormone regulation and overall well-being. Use a dairy-free option if you're following a vegan or lactose-free diet.

Almond Milk

An excellent alternative to cow's milk, almond milk is low in calories and provides vitamin E and healthy fats, which are beneficial for hormonal health.

Almond Butter (or Peanut Butter)

Nut butters add a creamy texture and healthy fats that support hormone production and aid in nutrient absorption.

Maca Powder

Derived from the maca root, this superfood is believed to have hormone-balancing properties and may support energy levels and vitality.

Cinnamon and Turmeric

These powerful spices are known for their anti-inflammatory effects and may help stabilize blood sugar levels, which can positively impact hormone balance.

Remember that a healthy diet is just one aspect of hormone balance, and it's essential to maintain a well-rounded lifestyle that includes regular exercise, stress management, and sufficient sleep to support your overall well-being. A mindful morning routine can help you radiate from inside out.

As with any significant dietary changes, especially if you have existing health conditions or concerns, it's always a good idea to consult a healthcare professional or a registered dietitian to ensure the smoothie aligns with your individual health needs.
