10 Testosterone-Boosting Smoothie Recipes

Testosterone is important. This vital hormone can not only increase your sex drive, and muscle mass, but may also prevent serious chronic diseases and improve your health. 

After the age of 30, testosterone levels begin to dip. Certain foods can help your body to produce more testosterone and smoothies are an easy way to incorporate these foods into your diet.

A little down below, you’ll find my favorite testosterone-boosting smoothie recipes. But before we get to these smoothies, let’s go through the best ingredients for smoothies to increase testosterone. 

Ingredients for Testosterone-Boosting Smoothies

Testosterone Smoothies

Low testosterone isn’t fun at all. It can result in loss of body hair, muscle mass, and reduced sex drive. Obesity, fatigue, and depression are other symptoms of low testosterone levels. 

Luckily, there are a few foods that may help you increase your testosterone production. Along with your doctor’s recommendation, try implementing more of the following foods into your diet. 

  • Ginger – has long been used in alternative medicine. It is believed to reduce inflammation and may boost testosterone levels. The research on humans is limited, but according to this study, consuming ginger daily for three months can increase testosterone levels by almost 20%. In another study, male rats’ testosterone levels also significantly increased after consuming ginger. It is believed that ginger can reduce oxidative stress and has potent antioxidant properties that may result in increased testosterone levels.
  • Plant-Based Milk – vitamin D is believed to play a vital role in increasing testosterone levels. While its best to increase Vitamin D levels by spending more time outdoors, fortified plant-based milk can provide additional vitamin D. One serving of plant-based milk can provide up to 25 percent your vitamin D requirement. 
  • Maca – is also known as Peruvian ginseng. It grows in the Andes of Peru at very high altitudes in harsh conditions. You can get it as a supplement in powder or capsules form. It’s believed to restore hormonal imbalances and increase sexual desire and fertility. It can taste quite earthy but mixes well in smoothies. 
  • Leafy Greens – we all know we should eat more leafy greens. Smoothies are an easy way to sneak more of the “good stuff” into your diet. Leafy greens such as spinach, kale, and Swiss chard are rich in essential minerals like magnesium. This study came to the conclusion that consuming more magnesium can increase testosterone levels. Participants who are also exercised during the study increased testosterone levels even more. 
  • Shilajit – is a black powder from high mountain rocks. It develops over centuries and has long been used in Ayurvedic medicine as a rejuvenator and antiaging compound. In this study, males who were given 500mg of shilajit daily had significantly higher testosterone levels after 90 days. 
  • Pomegranates – are full of antioxidants and loaded with important nutrients. They contain powerful plant compounds which are believed to have potent medicinal properties. In this study, participants who drank pomegranate juice for 2 weeks, showed an impressive 24% increase in testosterone levels. 
  • Honey – contains the mineral boron, which is thought to boost testosterone. According to this review, consuming 6mg of boron daily can increase testosterone levels by almost 25 percent. Dried fruits and nuts are also good sources of boron. Honey is also rich in nitric oxide, a compound your body uses to widen blood vessels and stimulate hormone production. Just two tablespoons of honey may boost nitric oxide levels by 50%. 
  • Bananas – are a great snack for boosting energy and testosterone levels. They contain a wide variety of minerals and vitamins, including magnesium and potassium. Bananas also contain an enzyme called bromelain. This enzyme is believed to reduce muscle damage after workouts, while also enhancing testosterone production
  •  Porridge Oats – B vitamins can play a vital role in testosterone production. Porridge oats are a great source of B vitamins and may therefore help raise your testosterone levels. 

When you’re trying to increase your testosterone levels, it’s best to avoid alcohol, processed foods, and smoking. Eating a balanced diet focused on fresh foods and doing regular exercise may help you to boost your testosterone levels naturally.

When you’re trying to boost your testosterone, it’s best to avoid dairy, soy, and refined sugar. A healthy alternative is unsweetened nut milk. I love using almond milk, but you could also try any other nut milk.

Many nut milks are fortified with vitamin D, which is essential for testosterone production in your body.

Shilajit Berries Smoothie

Shilajit Testosterone

Shilajit is a black, sticky substance from the Himalayas. It’s broken down plant matter that has developed over centuries.

Shilajit has long been used in Ayurvedic medicine for many conditions. It can contribute to cognitive health and is also believed to increase low testosterone levels. 

In this clinical study, male participants who consumed 500mg shilajit a day increased testosterone levels significantly after 3 months. 

Shilajit functions as an antioxidant and is anti-inflammatory. It may help fight free radicals, which are a major cause of rapid aging. 

In addition to being an anti-aging remedy, shilajit can also function as a natural energy booster by improving cell functions in the body. 

 Estrogen is the counterpart to testosterone. While testosterone is the “male” hormone, estrogen is the “female” hormone. 

Although both hormones are found in males and females, males naturally have higher levels of testosterone and females higher levels of estrogen.

High levels of estrogen can result in low levels of testosterone and vice versa. The berries in this smoothie recipe are believed to help reduce estrogen levels and therefore help increase testosterone. 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 banana
  • 2 tbsp porridge oats
  • 2 cups mixed frozen berries
  • 1 cup low-fat Greek yogurt
  • 250 mg shilajit resin
  • 2 tbsp honey

Instructions:

  1. Peel the banana

In this study, participants increased their testosterone levels on average by 24% after drinking just one glass of pomegranate juice every day for 2 weeks. 

Pomegranates are especially beneficial for athletes due to their high nitrate content.

Nitrates are believed to improve endurance and athletic performance. So, the next time you’re heading to the gym, stay away from the sugary sports drinks and down a glass of fresh pomegranate juice instead.

You might know that oysters are great for boosting testosterone levels. The reason for that is their high zinc content. 

Spirulina is rich in zinc as well.

Getting more zinc is a healthy way to keep your testosterone levels high. Your body won’t be able to store the mineral, so you need to consume enough zinc daily.
