Peachy Green Smoothie with Mental Health Benefits

Peachy Green Smoothie with Mental Health Benefits

Hey My Sister!

I’ve got a new smoothie recipe creation for you to try!

Btw, if you didn’t realize it, I create these recipes myself and experiment with the ingredients in my kitchen. I have to say that it is truly therapeutic. Who knows, maybe I will get into some food recipes at some point. Of course, that would take me having to cook more in general, lol!

This smoothie is really creamy, which I like! It actually reminds me of a milkshake.

It has a fresh taste to it and you’ll experience the fruity hints of strawberry and peach as you drink it.

It is considered a green smoothie as well because it includes spinach.

Check out the ingredients below, make it yourself, and enjoy.

Btw, let me and the community know your thoughts on it once you try it. I would definitely appreciate your feedback sis!


Here are the ingredients I decided to use in this creamy green smoothie and how some of them have mental health benefits.

According to Science Daily, the following can be said about spinach:

“Something as easy as adding more spinach, kale, collards and mustard greens to your diet could help slow cognitive decline, according to new research. The study also examined the nutrients responsible for the effect, linking vitamin K consumption to slower cognitive decline for the first time.”

Peaches & Strawberries:

According to Psychology Today, peaches and strawberries are:

“a good source of potassium, which helps regulate the brain’s feel-good hormone.”

According to Medical News Today, I found the following about Greek yogurt (probiotic yogurt):

Research suggests that consuming probiotic yogurt is beneficial for a person’s mental health.

2016 study found that workers who ate 100 grams of probiotic yogurt a day or took a daily probiotic capsule experienced less stressdepression, and anxiety than those who did not.

This effect is likely due to to the relationship between the gut and brain, and the ability of the gut to make neurotransmitters, such as serotonin and dopamine (Burgess).

Flax Seeds:

Flaxseeds are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, a polyunsaturated fatty acid that can help fight inflammation and keep cholesterol levels in check. “Research has also shown that omega-3s can help boost your mood and help improve mood disorders like depression,” says registered dietitian Brigitte Zeitlin. “Use flaxseed oil as the basis for your salad dressings, and reap these mood-elevating benefits.”

Chia Seeds:

The Newport Institute says the following about chia seeds:

Chia seeds have a high concentration of omega-3 fatty acids. In fact, one tablespoon of chia seeds contains 1,769 milligrams of omega-3s. These nutrients play a role in the functioning of serotonin and dopamine, both critical to mood and mental health.

Furthermore, chia seeds contain magnesium, which is sometimes referred to as “the stress antidote.” Some doctors and scientists believe that depression rates are increasing because we no longer get enough magnesium in our diet.
