Fertility Boosting Smoothie Recipe

On my quest to boost my fertility in preparation for freezing my eggs with Dr. Mark Surrey at SCRC in Beverly Hills, I’ve done a lot of research on how to improve egg quality naturally. This smoothie is a combo of a lot of the ‘best foods for fertility’ and how I’m starting every morning for the 2 months leading up to my egg freezing.  The recipe is loosely inspired by the ‘get preggy’ smoothie from Beaming Smoothie Bar (RIP) and great for anyone looking to conceive, going through IVF, egg freezing, or just someone who wants to start their morning with a complex nutritional powerhouse of hormone balancing goodness.

For fear of being ousted as one of those obnoxious food bloggers who tells their life story before the recipe, I’m going to cut to the chase.

Here’s my recipe for my superfood packed “Fertility Boosting Smoothie.” This will make 3 days worth of smoothies, I drink one day of, and pour the other two into to-go insulated mugs to store in the fridge. My eastern medicine doc told me that because my circulation is poor and body temperature is low, I should abstain from eating cold foods in preparation for the egg freezing. So I typically remove the smoothie from the fridge and let it heat to room temperature in a bowl before eating.  When i’m feeling frisky I mix it in with hot oatmeal.  I use all organic ingredients. This recipe is vegan gluten free.
