Have this smoothie as an evening snack to feel full – fight fattening nighttime snack urges – as well as get a sounder beauty sleep. The mesquite – in powder-form, not barbecue chips – is both tasty and healthy, lending a sweet cinnamon-mocha taste, along with high protein and fiber, yet with a low sugar content. How do you improve that? Add black cherries, of course. Studies show cherries are one of the few natural food sources of melatonin, the chemical that controls the body’s internal clock to regulate sleep. Sweet dreams.
