Pregnancy is a time of high metabolic and nutritional demands, and unfortunately a slice of ordinary strawberry shortcake won’t give you or your baby the nutrients you need. Good thing our Ginger Mint Strawberry Shortcake Smoothie has you covered. We picked the most nutrient-dense ingredients to benefit you and your baby. We recommend choosing organic produce where possible to avoid exposure to pesticides used in conventional agriculture that could affect your baby’s development.
In this creamy, frothy smoothie, you’ll get:
Protein– from avocado, hemp seeds, and chia seeds.
B-Vitamins– From Women’s PureFood A to Z, which has 180% of your daily recommended Folate
Carbohydrates– from yams and dates. Complex carbohydrates like those included in this recipe are best to avoid spiking your blood sugar.
Iron– is essential to support increased blood volume during pregnancy and fetal development.
So what are you and your baby waiting for?! Get blending!
