Today I want to share another recipe for a PCOS proof smoothie. This smoothie is filled with vegatables and fruits. This is a easy way to get enough vegatables per day, you can drink it on the go. I love these smoothies because how easy they are to make and to drink. I make them in 5 minutes, put them in my smoothie cup and take it with me to work. I love eating salads instead of bread as lunch but they take a lot of time. You’ll have to cut everything and eating a salad takes more time to eat. I have been working as a nurse in home care for 4 years now and I am always looking for healthy food on the go which can be consumed easily between patients during the car ride.
The smoothie of today has 8 ingredients, one of them is Maca powder. This powder is beneficial for multiple reasons. It should give you more energy and fertility. It has an influince on the part of the brain that controls your hormones. It can bring balance to your hormonal levels when consumed. A second effect is on the libido. It should increase it ánd make the quality of the sperm higher. The powder has a sweet vanilla taste, I like it a lot in smoothies. You should start on a low dosis! So a small teaspoon per day is more than enough.
But now! The recipe of today:
- 5 cubes of spinach (frozen, will give it a fresh/cold taste)
- 1/2 cucumber
- 1/2 avocado
- 1/2 mango
- 1 tsp coconut
- 1 tsp maca powder
- 400ml water
- optional: 1 tbsp linseed
Put everything together in the blender and let it spin for about 1 minute. The taste is sweet and fresh. The cucumber makes it really fresh and light but the mango and maca makes it a little sweet. I love putting avocado in a smoothie. This gives the smoothie a soft and creamy tast and texture. Good luck trying it out and let me know if you like it!
