Yum Yum Pregnancy Smoothies

Posted September 10th, 2013 by Lullabelly

 

When I was pregnant, one of my favorite breakfasts, or snacks, was a smoothie.

Not only was this creamy, blended fruity beverage easy to suck down, but also it was a great alternative to ice cream sundaes, which are loaded with calories and lack nutritional benefits.

Smoothies can be kind of pricey when you buy them at a health club or specialty food shop, but they are so simple to make that you can easily mix one up at home for half the price. All you need is a blender, some fruit and a little creativity. Not only will you save money, you’ll save on calories and boost your nutrition too!

Here are a few tips for making your own smoothies:

  • Start with a good base! Water, milk, Greek yogurt, kefir, coconut water, fresh juice, almond and soy milk all make great healthy starters to any smoothie. Skip sugary frozen yogurts and ice cream.
  • What fruit suits your mood? Berries, cherries, bananas, melons, pumpkin, peaches – the possibilities are endless. Throw whatever fruit you crave, or in season, into your smoothie. You can’t go wrong.  Here’s a tip – frozen fruit helps thicken the smoothie and keeps it cold. So keep some frozen fruit on hand. Don’t forget that smoothies can be green – kale, spinach and other veggies are welcome additions to any smoothie.
  • Spice it up! Don’t forget to add flavor to your concoction. Vanilla, cinnamon, basil, cilantro and mint are wonderful ways to boost taste.

You certainly don’t need a recipe to blend up a smoothie, but in case you are looking for some inspiration, Mom365.com has seven pregnancy smoothies that are super healthy and full of nutrients for your growing baby!

Enjoy!
