'Slumber Smoothie' Recipe

Multiple food options that can help with sleep. Foods rich in calcium and magnesium, serotonin, zinc, tryptophan and antioxidants are just a few that have been suggested as great choices. 

I have become a fan of the "NutriBullet" for creating the following "Slumber Smoothies:"

1 cup of vanilla almond milk
1 tsp of honey
1 cup of spinach or apricots.

Blend it all up and enjoy!

(You can use warmed almond milk for extra effect. You can also substitute soy milk, which can add tryptophan.)
