A Royal Pimm’s Party Mocktail This Platinum Jubilee

By Sue Bedford (MSc Nutritional Therapy)

Celebrate in style with this fertility-friendly Pimm’s Mocktail- a great fruit-packed treat idea for your Platinum Jubilee Parties.

Strawberries .. add a lovely red to most Mocktail’s… not only do they look nice but possess both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, both of which are important when it comes to health and fertility. Their seeds contain omega 3 and they are packed full of vitamin c (which protects egg and sperm cells from damage) and folate.

White-  ice cubes and cubed cucumber – low in calories, great for hydration, reducing inflammation and are a good source of vitamin C, K magnesium and fibre. Starflower also contains an antioxidant called Quercetin which helps reduce swelling. A fab fertility-friendly addition to a celebration mocktail.

Blue- ever added any edible flowers to your drinks? The royal blue in this Mocktail is from beautiful borage (also known as starflower).
