Sweet dreams! Your tryptophan hit

I happened to be at a friends the other day staying over night and she produced her version of bedtime cocoa. I loved it so much, I thought I would share!!! It’s a great tryptophan hit and full of amazing goodness for a blissful nights sleep.

Tryptophan, by the way, is an essential amino acid that your body needs to produce serotonin and melatonin.  Serotonin is the mood regulator and produces melatonin which regulates sleep.  You have to eat tryptophan as your body cannot produce it, what better way to get that than with a bit of added chocolate!

Here it is! Enjoy!

Bedtime Bliss (serves 2)

1 large glass of soya milk (500ml)
1 banana
2 dates
1/2 teaspoon of spirulina
1 teaspoon of ground linseeds
1 desert spoon of raw cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon of coconut oil
¼ Avocado (optional)

Just pop it all in a blender and blend for a few seconds until smooth!

Look out for Hazel Morgan’s book. I will let you know when it comes out.
