PCOS-Friendly Chocolate Lover's Smoothie (Great for Masking Myo-Inositol Bitterness)

by Fran Jakubowicz on Oct 17, 2023

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) can be managed with a good diet, and myo-inositol is often recommended as a supplement to help with insulin sensitivity and other symptoms. Here's a delicious PCOS-friendly chocolate smoothie recipe that should help mask the bitter taste of myo-inositol. This smoothie is rich in nutrients! Feel free to adjust the ingredients as needed based on your taste and dietary needs.

PCOS-Friendly Chocolate Smoothie


  1. 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or another dairy-free milk of your choice)
  2. 1 ripe banana
  3. 1 tbsp chia seeds (helps with satiety and provides omega-3s)
  4. 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  5. 1 tbsp almond butter (or any nut butter of your choice)
  6. 1 tsp vanilla extract
  7. 1 tbsp raw honey or pure maple syrup (adjust based on your sweetness preference)
  8. 1 serving of myo-inositol (follow the recommended dosage on your supplement's packaging)
  9. A pinch of sea salt (this can enhance the chocolate flavor and mask bitterness)
  10. Optional: A small handful of spinach or kale for extra nutrients (the chocolate should mask the green taste)
  11. Optional: A scoop of protein powder (preferably plant-based) if you want to increase protein content
  12. Ice cubes (as needed for desired consistency)


  1. In a blender, add the almond milk first.
  2. Add in the ripe banana, chia seeds, unsweetened cocoa powder, almond butter, vanilla extract, and honey or maple syrup.
  3. If you're using spinach/kale or protein powder, add them next.
  4. Sprinkle in your dose of myo-inositol and the pinch of sea salt.
  5. Add ice cubes to your preference.
  6. Blend until smooth and creamy, ensuring all ingredients are well mixed and the myo-inositol is thoroughly incorporated.
  7. Taste and adjust sweetness if needed. If the smoothie is too thick, you can add more almond milk; if it's too thin, add more ice or banana.
  8. Pour into a glass and enjoy!
