If you’re trying to get pregnant or just balance your hormones, this maca fertility smoothie is the perfect way to start your day or give you a boost as an afternoon snack.
This smoothie is rich in probiotics, healthy fats, and fat soluble activators. I’ve added maca powder, an herb that naturally promotes hormone balance and fertility.
If you’re afraid of saturated fat, don’t be! Sex hormones are made out of cholesterol. We need plenty of good fat in our diet for healthy hormone balance and increased fertility.
I like to make my smoothie in a big batch and store it in the fridge. This way it’s a lot easier than having to make it every day. If you’re trying to get pregnant, make sure you give your husband some of this smoothie every day, too.
You can add more or less maca, depending on how much you like to take. I like to take 1 tablespoon per day. I like to add more maca to my smoothie mix, so I don’t have to make the smoothie as often. I just drink 1/2 a cup per day to get 1 tablespoon of maca each day. If you want to take less maca, just add less to the smoothie mix.
You can use any combination of coconut milk, kefir or yogurt. Homemade kefir or yogurt or best because they are fermented longer than store-bought varieties. You can also ferment your coconut milk with kefir grains if you are dairy-intolerant.
If you’re thinking of adding greens to this smoothie, I recommend that you skip them. Raw greens are full of anti-nutrients which block mineral absorption.
