The Ultimate Pregnancy Smoothie

Added to Recipes on Mon 11/30/2009

Serving 1 cup
1 cup juice of your choice (papaya or mango nectar base is smoother and less acidic; less thick juices are preferable)
1 small banana or 3/4 cup of your favorite berries
2 tbsp whey protein
2 tbsp flax, freshly ground (helps with constipation and provides omega-3s)
1 tbsp hemp seed nut, hemp protein, or psyllium husk (for fiber)
1 tbsp Salba or chia seeds (provide omega-3, calcium, magnesium and protein)
1 tbsp wheat germ (for B vitamins)
3 (200-milligram) fish oil capsules (break and use oil)


Blend well and enjoy!
