Icy Menopause Recipes to Alleviate Hot Flashes


Menopause can be a great excuse to eat delicious and healthful treats. Who’s gonna stop you anyway?!? One of the best antidotes for hot flashes is an icy cold dessert made from fresh berries and citrus juices. The vitamins and minerals in these fruits naturally help combat menopause symptoms while providing your spouse with heart-healthy benefits at the same time. You’ll both enjoy these fruity ices and sorbets even in the dead of winter.

If you don’t have an ice cream maker, you can freeze the mixture in a freezer-proof container. Then just before serving, break up the frozen mixture and blend or process it until smooth. Just resist the urge to pour it all over your head! Relief is just a spoon away.
