How to Make a the Perfect PCOS-Friendly Smoothie

by Lauren Allen on Dec 25, 2022

I love smoothies as a delicious tool to pack in a ton of nutrients in a quick, delicious, easy-to-digest way. This is also my favorite way to include my inositol plus supplement! But oftentimes I see smoothies that aren’t nutrient-dense enough to be a whole meal, or they’re loaded with things that are sure to spike your blood sugar. Here’s an easy-to-follow formula to create the perfect PCOS smoothie

  • Protein- It’s not a meal if it doesn’t have protein. Protein is essential for building healthy cells and hormones, stabilizing your blood sugar, and keeping you full. Proteins for the perfect smoothie:
    • Greek yogurt
    • a good-quality protein powder (make sure there’s no added sugars)
    • collagen powder
    • hemp seeds.
  • Fat- add almond butter, 
    • Greek yogurt
    • Almond butter
    • Peanut butter
    • Cashew butter
    • Hazelnut butter
    • Avocado 
    • Coconut oil
  • Fiber- fiber is good for our gut microbiomes, boosts digestion, and helps stabilize our blood sugar
    • Chia seeds
    • Flax seeds
    • Psyllium husk
    • Acacia fiber
    • Fruit
      • ½ a banana
      • Acai
      • ¼ cup berries
      • Pomegranate seeds
      • ¼ of an apple
    • Veggies
      • Frozen spinach
      • Frozen cauliflower rice
      • Cucumber
      • Frozen zucchini
      • Kale
      • Pumpkin
    • Liquid
    Water
    Milk
    Nut milk (make sure there’s no added sugars or emulsifiers)
    • Extras
      • Cocoa powder
      • Turmeric
      • Cinnamon
      • Dash of vanilla
      • Ginger
      • Mint leaves
      • Ashwagandha to reduce stress (not suitable if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding)
      • Maca powder to boost energy (not suitable if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding)

    Here’s an example of one of my favorite smoothies to make in the fall:

    Ingredients:
