Popeye may have been onto something in regards to the PCOS Diet! Spinach is one of the main power foods in this recipe for many reasons. Spinach is known for it’s anti-inflammatory properties, reducing oxidative stress, regulating digestion, which are all common concerns for women with PCOS. Greens are essential to a proper PCOS Diet. It also strengthens your bones with a punch of calcium and even has some anti-cancer properties. Why wouldn’t we want some of that?

The chia seeds in this recipe is the second power food that gives you a great deal of fiber to keep you feeling fuller, longer. In addition, chia seeds are packed with omega-3 fatty acids, which are great for regulating metabolism and assisting with cardiac and lipid panels. If that weren’t enough, I love the taste of the chia seeds in the smoothie because they feel like chia pudding. Yum! If that sounds gross to you, sorry! Give the smoothie a try and you’ll probably change your mind.

My best and most tasty green smoothie recipe is not only delicious but really good for you! I get lots of crazy looks and also many questions about what I’m drinking. I think you’ll agree that this recipe is simple and enjoyable!

PCOS Green Smoothie Recipe

1 heaping handful (or two) fresh spinach or kale
1 ripe banana
1 1/2 cups almond/coconut milk
1/2 tbsp chia seeds, more if you’d like
2 scoops pea protein (more about this next week)
1 heaping spoonful of virgin coconut oil

Slice your banana into chunks and toss all ingredients into your smoothie blender (regular blender will do). Blend until all ingredients are incorporated well. Enjoy!
