This healthy fertility smoothie is full of nutrients and vitamins to help your body prepare for pregnancy. It is great for ladies suffering from PCOS or high FSH as well as unexplained infertility.
It would also be fantastic for your partner to drink as the maca root powder is really good for male fertility.

The protein powder in the smoothie makes it a great choice to pump up your protein counts for the day while not overdoing the carbohydrates.
Frozen or fresh berries – Fresh is better as you shouldn’t drink ice cold drinks when TTC, Chinese medicine believes warm drinks are good for the uterus.
Protein Powder – natural and plant based is best, I used this one because it has greens too which are great for fertility.
Milk – regular (full fat is best) or almond or coconut milk
Maca Powder– This is an ancient Peruvian root crop that is said to benefit both men and women’s reproductive organs.
Pineapple – Pineapple core contains bromelain which is supposed to help build your uterine lining ready for implantation.
Coconut oil, avocado and/or ground flax seeds – healthy fats are essential for fertility and these thicken up the smoothie in lieu of banana (too carby for The Fertility Diet to have every day).
- You can add royal jelly and bee pollen to your smoothie or take them as capsules. I used Dr. Danielle’s Bee Well which combines the two ingredients into one capsule. *Don’t take this if you have a bee allergy*
- Spinach or kale – 1 cup
Fertility Smoothie Nutritional Information
If you are following the fertility diet from my previous post, you know how important the right balance of macronutrients is for your fertility.
My recipe for the smoothie is a perfect example of the fertility diet in action.
This is using the following measurements:
1 scoop of protein powder
1/2 cup of pineapple
1 tablespoon of maca powder
1/2 cup of strawberries
1 cup of full-fat milk
You can play around with different variations to add more protein or fat as needed.
