In The News: Foods with Isoflavones May Lower Blood Pressure

New research suggests lowering blood pressure may be as easy as eating foods with isoflavones.

Serves 1.

  • 1 1/2 cups low-fat vanilla soy milk
  • 1 sprig fresh peppermint (or 1/2 teaspoon dried)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 1/2 cups frozen chopped berries (such as strawberries, blueberries, or raspberries)

In a small saucepan, combine the soy milk and peppermint. Cook over low heat for 2 minutes (do not boil). Remove from heat. Cover and steep 5 minutes. Pull out the mint sprig (or strain) and discard the mint. Chill in the refrigerator. Combine the minted soy, honey, and berries in a blender or food processor and process until smooth. Serve immediately. (To make sherbet, decrease the amount of soy milk to 1 cup, pour the mixture into two serving bowls, cover, and freeze for one hour. Serve cold.)
