Fertility Smoothie Challenge Day #6

Fertility Smoothie Challenge Day #6

During this smoothie challenge I have so far shared with you a wide range of fertility smoothie ideas. Today’s recipe is a fun tropical smoothie that is perfect for the summer heat. Most of this fruit (except for the banana) can be found in the frozen section of your health food or grocery store if you are not able to get them fresh.

Island Girl Colada

1/8 Cup Pineapple
1/4 Cup Mango
1/4 Cup Strawberries
1 Banana
1 teaspoon Fertilica Maca powder
1 teaspoon Active Bee Power Royal jelly

-Blend all ingredients together. Add water as needed for desired consistency. If you are using all fresh fruit you may want to add some ice cubes to get the slushiness of a colada.

What makes this a “Fertility Smoothie”?
One of the main fertility superfoods in this smoothie is Royal Jelly. Royal Jelly is rich in amino acids, lipids, sugars, vitamins and most importantly, proteins. It contains high levels of vitamins D and E, and also has ample levels of iron and calcium. As all of these are essential to proper health and organ function, it is very easy to see how Royal Jelly can help with in assisting with fertility.

Regular consumption of high-quality Royal Jelly has been shown to help balance hormones. This makes it beneficial to those individuals that suffer from a hormonal imbalance, as it helps to provide support to the endocrine system. It can also help with problems that are related to hormonal imbalance, such as polycystic ovarian syndrome or irregular menstrual cycles.

The Maca in this smoothie also helps to balance hormones and support the endocrine system. Click here to learn more about Maca for fertility.

    I purchased a bottle of royal maca that states for people under 50 the dosage is 1/4-1/3 tsp daily. Should I follow the bottle directions or what is on the recipe? Is the 1T maca which the recipe calls for by chance the protein mix maca? I saw those in a big 1 gallon container yesterday. The bottle i have is tiny which holds 2oz of the maca root powder…could you please clarify? Thanks!!

    • Hi Veronica,

      The recipe is for maca root powder that only contains maca root. The protein powder probably contains other ingredients. It may be that the maca you purchased is concentrated and that is why it recommends a lower dosage. It is always best to follow the directions on the label of the product you purchased.

      Best Wishes,
