The IVF Diet Book: Lime & Avocado Smoothie

Over the last few weeks I’ve been sharing some of my favourite recipes  from my book, The IVF Diet Book, because good nutrition plays a very important part in helping couples conceive, and in some cases can even make the difference between a successful and unsuccessful IVF outcome.

This week I’m sharing a thick and creamy lime and avocado smoothie recipe that’s dairy free and rich in healthy fats and inositol to support egg development. The recipe also contains the zest and juice of a lime, which are known for their cell protective properties and alkalising benefits.

Whip this up in only 5 minutes

Prep time: 5 minutes

Serves: 2


  • 1 medium avocado, chopped
  • A handful of spinach or other leafy greens
  • Juice and zest of 1 lime
  • 1 tsp minced ginger
  • 300 ml coconut milk
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 chopped and frozen banana

Place all the ingredients together in a blender and process until smooth and creamy.
