1. Go Bananas

Helps boost energy levels

This potassium-rich smoothie will leave you feeling energized by supporting fluid and electrolyte balance in your cells. Since your blood volume expands by up to 50 percent during pregnancy, your electrolyte needs also increase… and this smoothie will help keep the extra fluid in the right chemical balance.

2 cups spinach leaves

2 ripe bananas, peeled

1 apple, peeled and cored

1 cup purified water

  1. Combine spinach, bananas, apple, and 12 cup water in a blender and blend thoroughly.

A NATURAL THICKENING AGENT?

Because bananas have such a low water content, they can be used as a great natural alternative to common thickening agents. You can actually watch the bananas take a liquefied smoothie and turn it into a delightfully thickened version. Experiment and watch as the banana thickens the smoothie before your very eyes!

Bananas make a tasty base to a variety of smoothies because their low water content makes them natural thickening agents. You can go fruity by mixing in some raspberries and blueberries for A Berry Great Morning, or blend a rich treat with almonds in the Creamy, Nutty, Sweet Smoothie.

Carrot Top of the Morning to You

Good for your baby’s bones and development

Rich in beta-carotene, this smoothie is particularly essential for women who are about to give birth, because it helps to repair postpartum tissue. Vitamins A and C also play key roles in encouraging bone growth. They also help the development of the heart, lungs, kidneys, eyes, and bones, and the circulatory, respiratory, and central nervous systems of your baby-to-be.
