This sleep-promoting evening shake contains ingredients that will help put your mind into a restful state.
Why It's So Good For You:
Bananas are a great pre-bedtime snack or smoothie ingredient. With their natural levels of melatonin and serotonin, they will help calm your nervous system. Magnesium from the bananas, almond milk, and oats also help relax your muscles and prevent restlessness in order to fall into a deep sleep.
Raw honey has long been used as a natural sleep aid as it is said to assist in the release of melatonin. Enjoy this 1-2 hours before bed to feel the benefits.
