The Best Breakfast for PCOS: The Power Smoothie
The Best Breakfast for PCOS: The Power Smoothie

PCOS Diva FREE Smoothie GuideFor years, I have told my clients that a power smoothie is the best breakfast for women with PCOS.  I don’t mean the smoothies you find at the mall that are more a dessert than nutritious.  Done right, smoothies are the quick, delicious and portable way to start your day off on the right note.  If you use the right nutrient dense ingredients, a smoothie will: 

  • Keep your blood sugar balanced
  • Provide protein to keep your energy level high and even
  • Give  you fiber to nourish your digestive system
  • Get you off to a great start by getting the important leafy greens your body craves, first thing in the morning.
  • Start your day off right so you are less likely to thrown in the towel at lunch

Watch this video to see how easy it is to create a delicious breakfast smoothie:

 

Smoothies are infinitely flexible.  You can change the flavor easily by keeping your base ingredients and changing up add-ins like fruit and cacao.

NOTE: Adding frozen banana will add to the creaminess, sweetness and texture of your smoothie, but for some women, it may be to high glycemic.  You may need to experiment with and without banana.

    Do you have to worry about carbs when making these smoothies? Do you know how many grams are in the initial one you mentioned?

    • Amy Anderson Medling

      I would say, I am not a carb counter – I take a more intuitive approach to eating and you can learn more about it in my Jumpstart Program. However, I did figure the carb count for the peach smoothie – It is 15 net carbs after you take into account the 10 grams of fiber in the smoothie.

        Thanks again Amy!

    Hi. I live in Scotland so I don’t have access to the diva powders. So do you have any alternative powders to use?

    Hi – Just wondering about how many servings are in each container for your smoothie bundle? About how long does 1 bundle last?
