Smoothies for Insomnia


ImageInsomnia is the inability to fall asleep or stay asleep. Insomnia may be caused by low blood sugar, depression, heat or cold or caffeine. People who suffer from insomnia may also be vitamin B, magnesium or calcium deficient. Caffeine plays a big role in insomnia, although that cup of coffee in the morning may be ok, those that drink coffee all day long or even after dinner are affected.

I love my morning smoothie, gets me off to a good start…it consists of strawberries, mango, kale and apples.  In the evening I make one of apples, kale, banana and pineapples.

Fruits and vegetables to juice for insomnia: Apples, Bananas, Lettuce, Leafy Greens

There are also herms to add to juice: Chamomile, Lavender, Lemon Balm, Passionflower, Skullcap, St. John’s Wart, Valerian, Wild Lettuce.

These smoothies will calm you throughout the day and help you have good nights sleep.

Here are a couple recopies to try. I use natural/unsweetened apple juice as a base.

4 spinach leaves

2 kale leaves

1 beet

2 stalks of celery

1 apple


3 apples + 3 stalks of celery

Cutting caffeine out of your diet is hard for some, but once it’s out of your system you will feel better, with more energy and can sleep better at night.


About Smoothie Essentials - ShelleRae

Welcome! I am ShelleRae and I am very excited you are here. I joined the Smoothie Essentials team about 5 years ago now. Always health conscious and into prevention versus medication it seemed natural when the opportunity came up to take on the creation of this blog and the MatchaGT blog as well. As mother to three and surrogate to many more I've practiced much of what I write on sometimes with great success and other times with a bit less. My friends and family are my test kitchen and my facts are most often from WebMD - they seem to have a fairly accurate and conservative approach. The Smoothie Essentials product is a line of boosts that add functionality to one's daily foods without adding flavor or colors. (except for MatchaGT and green blend) making it easy to "hide" them from the finicky eaters we all know and love. From stirring them into yogurts, smoothies, frappes and even juice drinks it all come out with the original flavor being center star.. My inspiration comes from others who also are striving to live a better life through lifestyle changes. More information is available at or by emailing
