Over the last few week’s I’ve been sharing some of my favourite recipes from my book, The IVF Diet Book. This week I‘m sharing with you my quick and easy refreshing tomato juice recipe, which I like to call the Virgin Bloody Mary.
This energising, hydrating juice is rich in lycopene and is ideal for preparing the body for IVF. Lycopene is especially important for improving sperm health: a low intake of lycopene in the diet is associated with poor semen quality and male infertility.
This recipe is so simple and only takes 5 minutes to prepare!
Prep time: 5 minutes
- 6 medium-sized ripe tomatoes
- 2 celery sticks
- ½ cucumber
- 1 lime, peeled
- 3-4 dashes of Worcestershire sauce, to taste
- 3-4 dashes of Tabasco sauce, to taste
- ½ tsp baobab powder
- ½ tsp acai powder
- Pinch of sea salt
- Small slice of fresh horseradish (optional)
- Crushed ice, to serve
Put the tomatoes, celery, cucumber and lime through a juicer. Stir in the remaining ingredients and serve with crushed ice.
