There is nothing like blending a tasty smoothie full of ingredients to nourish your body and set it for prime condition to conceive a baby.

These 3 fertility boosting smoothies contain key ingredients to promote healthy sex hormone production, adrenal health, and thyroid function.

They include the foods that support liver and gut health and also contain B12, folate, omega-3s, iodine, probiotics, and fibre. It is useful to buy bags of frozen fruit and veg to reduce food waste and to make your smoothie nice and cool. Enjoy!

Beetroot and berry smoothie bowl


Serves 3

  • 1 1/2 beetroot (medium, peeled and diced)
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen mango
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen raspberries
  • 1 1/2 tbsps pitted dates
  • 1 1/2 tsps acai powder
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk

In your blender or food processor, combine the beetroot, frozen mango, frozen raspberries, dates, acai powder and milk. Blend until smooth and thick. Transfer to a bowl and add toppings such as blueberries and shredded coconut. Enjoy!

Beetroot is a root vegetable, with a strong link to fertility. It contains fibre, folate, manganese, potassium, iron, and vitamin C which each have a host of benefits. Improved blood flow and lowered blood pressure are just a few of the health improvements you will get from eating beetroot.

Using berries and milk are a good option for keeping the sugar content of the smoothie lower than if you were to use juice.

Tropical fruit smoothie


Serves 1

  • 1/2 cup mango (chopped)
  • 1/2 cup pineapple (chopped)
  • ½ cucumber (chopped)
  • 2 ½ ice cubes
  • 1/4 cup mint leaves
  • 1/2 cup baby spinach
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup water

Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into a glass and enjoy!

Spinach contains folate which is helpful for ovulation and is also needed for the DNA synthesis found in sperm. Make sure to supplement your folate levels with folic acid from conception to 12 weeks of pregnancy.

Adding in chia seeds boosts the fibre and omega 3 content of this delicious fruity smoothie; this is especially important for sperm quality and quantity. Fibre is also important for good gut health which is linked to good immunity and also impacts your mood. We should aim for 30g of fibre a day but the average person only reaches 18g a day.

Overall, this smoothie creates a healthy sperm-friendly alkaline environment by providing crucial minerals, antioxidants and vitamins that are needed to grow healthy eggs and sustain a successful pregnancy.

Strawberry and peanut butter smoothie


Serves 1

  • 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yoghurt
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • ½ banana
  • 2 tbsps all natural peanut butter

Add all the above ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.

The nut butter in this PB and J inspired smoothie improves sperm quality and decreases the risk of ovulatory infertility due to the iron content. Strawberries are a great addition to smoothies due to their high vitamin C content - this helps protect the sperm from free radicals that circulate the body.

Smoothies are such an easy way to get all your nutrients, protein and fat, each of which are essential for fertility.
