Bedtime Green Smoothie

A snack before bed might be a good thing, giving your body a dose of melatonin for natural sleep regulation and healthy carbs for cellular renewal. Smoothies can actually do the job and the bedtime green smoothie recipe specifically helps with falling asleep. Blend it an hour before you’re ready to go to bed and drink it at a slow pace.
