A Bite of Fitness

Natural Zzzquil

Everyone loves a good nights sleep... And sleep is extremely important for your health.  When you sleep well, your performance during the day is better, you have more energy, and you feel good.  We got this smoothie recipe from Dr. Oz and are absolutely obsessed... not only does this smoothie make your sleep more soundly but it also works your metabolism while you are sleeping.  I like to refer to it as "the miracle smoothie". 

Not only does tart cherry juice release natural melatonin but it also boosts metabolism... making this the perfect drink before bed time. You can drink the tart cherry juice on its own but the added ingredients in this smoothie will help make you sleep like a baby. 

Dr. Oz Sleep Slim Smoothie
slightly adapted 

1 cup tart cherry juice (make sure there is no sugar added)
1/2 banana
1/2 cup almond milk
splash of vanilla extract

1. Put all ingredients in a blender.
2. Blend until smooth.


The consistency will be more like juice than a smoothie.

We like to drink this smoothie at least 3 times a week before bed!  Let us know if you tried it and received the same benefits that we love from it!

Looks like Carly got the benefits from the sleep smoothie!
