Step by Step Instructions to create the perfect purple power fertility smoothie

Step 1

If you like  this a little frostier, place a banana and blackberries in the freezer for at least 2 hours before making. I put them in when i go to bed so they’re in over night.

Step 2

Place the banana, kale and half the coconut water or regular cool water in the blender and blitz together.

Step 3

Place the rest of the ingredients into the blender. Blitz this until all the ingredients are well blended. You may need to do this a couple of times to get a beautiful smooth consistancy.

 

Step 4

Pour into a couple of glasses. and drink.

Step 5

If you’re partner isn’t having the 2nd portion put it in an air tight container and place it in the fridge. Drink within the next 48 hours.

Place all the ingredients into the blender to make the beautiful purple power fertility smoothie
