Non-starchy vegetables are a pretty key component of a PCOS diet, and I try to recommend at least 2 cups of the good stuff with most meals in my free 30-Day PCOS Diet Challenge. I know for some though this can be a bit impractical, especially on busy days, so this is where PCOS smoothie recipes can come in handy.
This incredibly micronutrient-dense green smoothie is my go-to drink! It will give you a ton of energy as well as most of the vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, and fiber you need for the day. Forget expensive supplements (that many times don’t even contain what they claim to), just have this every day!
I usually always make a double serving, which takes me 2 days to get through before I need to make it again. Sometimes I will put less flax milk in it and eat it like soup. It is a great snack to bring with you to work or keep on hand at home. As an optional ingredient to give your smoothie an extra nutritional boost, add in a tall shot glass of flaxseed!
Make sure you blend well in a high-speed blender to get it as smooth as possible.
Here’s everything you’ll need to make this PCOS-Friendly Supercharged Green Smoothie:
- Almond milk (or unsweetened flax milk)
- Rainbow chard
- Baby spinach
- Frozen blueberries
Enjoy the energy boost!
P.S. If you are struggling to make the switch to a PCOS diet, I run a free 30-Day PCOS Diet Challenge every quarter which is the perfect way to really kickstart your health transformation. This live event includes weekly meal plans, recipes, shopping lists, and video lessons, all within a supportive community environment. However, if this recipe has inspired you and you want to get started right away, then I recommend downloading my free 3-Day PCOS Diet Meal Plan as well. It’s a 15-page PDF ebook that contains some of my most popular PCOS recipes, a shopping list ready to go, and some additional information about how to use food to heal your PCOS.
PCOS smoothie recipes can be tough to find. I hope you enjoy this one!
