Expert Tips

Basil is another relaxing herb you can add to this juice.

My grandmother used to drink a warm cup of milk every night before sleeping. She said that it helped her sleep, and it must have worked because she always slept like a baby. I don't follow grandma's tradition, but I have a ritual of my own. A couple hours before sleep I drink either a relaxing herbal tea, or sometimes, if I'm still hungry, a relaxing night time smoothie. Vegetable juices and smoothies are a great addition to a light dinner, and if you use the best combination of relaxing ingredients, it can be a very powerful sleeping aid. Lettuce, for example, was used in ancient Egypt as a sleep-inducing medicine. Bananas are very calming, and fennel helps digestion, guaranteeing a good night's sleep with peaceful dreams.

Make sure you don't drink this too close to bed time, or it might wake you up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom.

Directions

  • 1 Bring a cup of water to a boil, and steep the chamomile tea bag for 5 minutes. Then let it cool. (You can add a couple ice cubes to make this faster).
  • 2 Process all the ingredients in a blender, and enjoy.
