I see questions almost daily in the support group for my free 30-Day PCOS Diet Challenge, asking for smoothie recipes suitable for a PCOS diet. Given how popular smoothies are, I’ve recently been working really hard on compiling a collection of PCOS-friendly smoothies for this community.

As you’ll notice, my kind of smoothies are much lower in sugar than what can generally be considered “normal” and that’s because I want you to take every opportunity to nourish yourself well and not spike your blood sugar levels.

This Spicy Veggie Smoothie does exactly that. It’s not sweet or creamy, but it’s amazingly refreshing.

Spicy Veggie PCOS Smoothie

Here’s everything you’ll need to make this PCOS smoothie:

  • Coconut water
  • Cayenne powder
  • Baby spinach
  • Tomato
  • Carrot
  • Cucumber
  • Garlic
  • Avocado
  • Lime

If you’re struggling to fit enough non-starchy vegetables in your diet, or you have a meal planned that’s just meat and carbs, then a smoothie like this one can be a great option.

The ingredient list is pretty out-there so please let me know what you think!

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes

If you’re struggling to fit enough non-starchy vegetables in your diet, or you have a meal planned that’s just meat and carbs, then a smoothie like this one can be a great option.

Ingredients

Pantry

  • 1 cup Coconut water
  • 1/2 tsp Cayenne powder

Vegetables

  • 1 cup Baby spinach
  • 1 Tomato (roughly chopped)
  • 1 Carrot (roughly chopped, frozen)
  • 1 Cucumber (roughly chopped, frozen)
  • 1 tsp Garlic (minced)

Fruit

  • 1 Avocado (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 Lime (peeled)

Instructions

  1. Combine all ingredients in a high-speed blender, then add a pinch of salt. Include both the juice and flesh of the lime. Process until smooth.
  2. Pour into two serving glasses and enjoy.

Notes

This smoothie is best when the carrots and cucumbers are pre-frozen ahead of time. This keeps the smoothie both cold and thick. If you forget, or don’t have time to pre-freeze these vegetables, add ½ cup of ice to the ingredients instead.
