1. Splendid Melon

Good for your baby’s bones and development

While endive is more commonly found in salads or as a garnish, this green is a wonderful base to this smoothie. The cantaloupe and honeydew melon add sweet nectar that will quench any need your body may have and they also add vitamin C, which will help your baby grow strong teeth and bones. In addition, endive provides an abundance of vitamin A to promote your baby’s overall development.

YIELDS: 3–4 CUPS

1 cup endive, chopped

1 cantaloupe, peeled and seeds removed

1 honeydew, peeled and seeds removed

12 cup ice cubes (optional)

  1. Combine endive, cantaloupe, and honeydew in a blender and blend thoroughly until desired texture is achieved.
  2. If a thicker consistency is desired, ice can be added while blending until desired consistency is reached.

2. Tempting Tomato

Good for your baby’s nervous system

The sweet yet tangy twist that results from the combination of the cabbage, tomatoes, celery, and peas is an inviting savory treat that can be enjoyed morning, noon, or night. It is recommended to have two servings of dark green leafy vegetables per day during pregnancy, so this smoothie gets you halfway there. In addition, the folic acid from the cabbage, tomatoes, and celery found in this smoothie help to ensure that your baby-to-be will have a strong, healthy nervous system.

1 cup cabbage

2 tomatoes, skin intact

1 stalk celery

12 cup sweet peas

12 cup purified water

PASS THE PEAS, PLEASE

There’s no veggie easier than the pea! Sweet and refreshing, you can serve them hot or munch on them cold. They require little prep time and taste great in a variety of dishes. This tiny veggie packs a punch in terms of all of the vitamins and nutrients it delivers. One cup of peas provides 50 percent of your daily value of vitamin K, which optimizes your baby’s growth and development.


3. Super Celery

This combination of greens and rich vegetables offers a healthy dose of fiber; vitamins A, B, C, and K; and a wealth of minerals like iron and potassium. In addition, the presence of celery—traditionally used as a diuretic—can help you get rid of excess fluid, including the puffiness that can build up under your eyes and in your feet during pregnancy.

YIELDS: 3–4 CUPS

1 cup spinach

3 stalks celery

1 cucumber, peeled

1 carrot, peeled

1 cup purified water

  1. Combine spinach, celery, cucumber, carrot, and 12 cup water in a blender and blend until thoroughly combined.
  2. Continue adding remaining water as you blend until desired texture is achieved.
