Avocado is rich in Vitamin E. It not only helps improve sperm motility, but also helps the sperm infiltrate the egg. Also, avocados are rich in Vitamin B6 and folic acid which regulates sexual hormone function which optimises sexual health in general. What’s the easiest (and tastiest) way to get your avocado boost for male fertility? Guacamole of course.
- 1 large ripe tomato
- 3 avocados, very ripe but not bruised
- juice 1 large lime
- handful coriander, leaves and stalks chopped, plus a few leaves, roughly chopped, to serve
- 1 small red onion, finely chopped
- 1 chilli, red or green, deseeded and finely chopped
- tortilla chips, to serve
- Use a large knife to pulverize the tomato to a pulp on a board, then tip into a bowl. Halve and stone the avocados (saving a stone) and use a spoon to scoop out the flesh into the bowl with the tomato.
- Tip all the other ingredients into the bowl, then season with salt and pepper. Use a whisk to roughly mash everything together. If not serving straight away, sit a stone in the guacamole (this helps to stop it going brown), cover with cling film and chill until needed. Scatter with the coriander, if using, then serve with tortilla chips or spicy wedges and sour cream.
