This delightful smoothie will have you daydreaming of a warm beach somewhere!
It's jam-packed with sharp and fresh flavours, owing primarily to raspberry and mango. The key ingredient here, though, is fresh ginger. The ginger really brings it to life and makes it incredibly refreshing and energetic.
Use coconut water to thin out this smoothie. If you don't like coconut water, you could substitute plain water or your preferred type of milk. This is more of a snack rather than a meal replacement smoothie.
A Smoothie For The Final Stage Of Menstruation
If no implantation occurs during this point of your cycle, the thicker uterine lining begins to disintegrate. This stage is accompanied by many PMS symptoms such as mood swings, bloating, cramping, and nausea. To alleviate these symptoms, drink plenty of water and eat juicy fruits like raspberries and mango, which assist to reduce bloating and cramping. When you add coconut water to the mix, it keeps your body hydrated. Mango is high in vitamin B6 and iron, which can assist with PMS and prepare the body for iron loss during menstruation.
In addition, ginger is an anti-inflammatory element that can help relieve cramps and breast pain caused by menstruation. Blend them together in this wonderful Berry Coconut Water-Mango Smoothie to gain the benefits and stay comfy!
