The SHW Hormone Balancing Latte Recipe

THE SHWELLNESS HORMONE BALANCING LATTE RECIPE

SHEREE HEALTH DIARIES

If you’re looking for a yummy drink, that is not only going to support your hormones, but become your morning coffee replacement, you’ve come to the right place!

When it comes to balancing your hormones, one of the number one things you can do is actually take a break (or completely come off) caffeine!

Why? Well, a cup of coffee is like a cup of cortisol!

Yup, your morning mug that’s ‘getting you through the day’ is probably contributing to your hormones being out of whack. But hey, I’m not here to take your coffee away from you, although I do suggest you try this delicious alternative in its place for 4 weeks and see how the body responds!

The ingredients in this hormone balancing elixir aren’t all that complicated, in fact, I have kept it super simple because who wants to have 10 different ingredients they have to mix together every day!

The ingredients that I have included however are HIGH QUALITY sources… and therefore it is important that you use a brand you trust or one I have listed below, as it will make a difference to not only the taste, but more importantly the benefits!

ABOUT THE INGREDIENTS

1.  MACA ROOT POWDER (gelatinized) 

Originating in Peru, the yellow maca root is the most commonly found form, and is known for its benefits of balancing hormones, increasing libido, helping the body handle stress, and perfect during transitional phases (e.g. during your cyclic years or menopause).

2.  ORGANIC CACAO POWDER 

Cacao is also derived from Peru (at least the ceremonial and high grades are), and is known for its cognitive benefits, boosting our antioxidants, mental health and response to inflammation which is particularly key in balancing our hormones. It is the perfect substitute for coffee as you still get the little boost of brain powder, but it is also heart opening and doesn’t have the same energy crash!

I use @selenohealth’s chocolate maca powder that actually combines both the cacao and maca in one mix, but you can buy both as separate ingredients on their website.

3.  DAIRY-FREE COLLAGEN CREAMER

This has been a more recent addition to my hormone balancing latte, and you can definitely make it without it, but I find that it is a delicious addition! Collagen is known in the beauty world for it’s positive effect on our skin, hair and nails, but even more importantly collagen is incredible for our gut health… which in turn supports our hormones! Not to mention it’s a little hit of protein to keep the blood sugars stable (again, quite the opposite to coffee).

I personally use @doseandco dairy free collagen creamer in my morning mug, they have a variety of yummy flavours, so it’s helpful to mix it up (caramel is my fave).

So there you have it, it’s super simple! All you will need is the above ingredients, your choice of milk and a milk frother (if you have one - otherwise a stove top will do).

HOW TO PUT IT TOGETHER

Ingredients:

-  1 tbsp. @selenohealth chocolate maca powder (or 1 tsp. maca powder + 1 tsp. Cacao powder)

-  1 serve of @doseandco dairy-free collagen creamer (flavour of your choice)

-  Milk of choice (I personally use unsweetened almond milk)

Method:

1.  Add milk into frother and fill to just below max line (or on stove top)

2.  Add in the powders and press the button to allow it to mix

3.  If you are using the stove, make sure it is on low to medium heat and allow the mix to simmer for 5 or so minutes

4.  Pour into your mug and enjoy!

If you do make this, be sure to tag me on social media @strengthen.heal.nourish and let me know what topping creations you come up with, I am always looking for more inspo!

ENJOY!

MY GO-TO MORNING SMOOTHIE RECIPE!

29 / JULY / 2021
SHEREE'S HEALTH DIARIES

At Sheree Hannah Wellness, we know one thing’s for sure, how you spend your morning, is shaping how you spend your life!

The key to a good day is a great morning routine!

However, I have worked with numerous clients who’s morning routine is practically non-existent, and does not include one key thing that will make all the difference to your hormones and your energy levels…

BREAKFAST!!

They aren’t lying when they say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day! Especially for us females!

When it comes to breakfast, I have always struggled, believe it or not, as a kid I used to refuse to have breakfast or convince mum to just get me chocolate milk (:O I know!!)

What I know now that I didn’t know back then, was how much damage I was doing to my body by skipping breakfast!

Not only was I not starting the day off without any nutrients (hello, no energy!), but I was adding more stress to my body (say hello to higher cortisol levels)!

When we miss our first meal of the day, we throw our blood sugar levels out of whack, and if they’re unhappy, so is insulin and if insulin is unhappy, well let’s just say it’s a domino effect from that point on!

If you don’t stabilise your insulin levels, you honestly have no hope in stablising your the rest of your hormones! It’s no wonder females everywhere are battling with PMS, period pain, hormonal headaches, tiredness, low libido… the list goes on!

So, because I know the battle when it comes to having breakfast, when I accidently made this delicious smoothie, I knew I had to share it! It’s become a lifesaver!

Whip it up in less than 5 minutes, with less than 5 ingredients! It’s a WINNER in my books! Check it out! (Your hormones will thank you for it!)

INGREDIENTS

-  1 cup frozen blueberries

-  1 tbsp. @picspeanutbutter Pic’s + Whittaker’s Chocolate Peanut Butter

-  2 tbsp. @mitchells.nz Bone Broth Protein Powder

-  1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or dairy free milk alternative of your choosing)

OPTION: add 1 cup of ice if you want to make it into a smoothie bowl

METHOD

Add all the above ingredients into a blender… and BLEND!! Until it is at the desired consistency and well mixed!

Don’t be surprised if this becomes your new favourite breakfast!

If you do make this, be sure to tag me on social media @strengthen.heal.nourish and let me know what you think! I hope you love it as much as I do!

ENJOY!

Yours in Health,
