1. Orange You Glad You Got Up for This?

Good for strengthening your immune system

This vitamin C booster can help prevent vitamin C deficiencies in your baby, which has been related to impairing mental development. Vitamin C also supports iron absorption. Iron is important for making hemoglobin, that carries oxygen to your cells, and maintains a healthy immune system. You will need extra iron for your growing baby and placenta, as well as to prevent iron-deficiency anemia, which can result in low birth weights and premature deliveries.

YIELDS: 1 QUART

1 cup iceberg lettuce

3 oranges, peeled

12 cup coconut milk

VITAMIN C

Oranges are well known for their immunity-building power, and rightfully so! Eating at least one orange a day can help expectant mothers stay healthy and strong throughout their pregnancy. You can thank the rich beta-carotenes and the vitamin C. An orange is a definite for health and longevity.

2. Splendid Citrus

Helps boost energy levels

Booming with the strong flavors of pineapple, orange, grapefruit, lemon, and lime, this sweet and tart smoothie will liven your senses. In addition, pineapple contains the enzyme bromelain, which has been said to help soften your cervix, which may stimulate your uterus and, toward the end of your pregnancy, may help induce labor.

YIELDS: 1 QUART

2 large kale leaves

1 cup pineapple, peeled and cubed

1 large orange or 2 small oranges, peeled

1 grapefruit, peeled

12 lemon, peeled

12 lime, peeled

  1. Combine kale and all fruits in a blender in the order listed.
  2. Blend until desired consistency is reached.

FEED YOUR BRAIN!

With 4 servings of fruit and 2 servings of vegetables, the vitamin and mineral benefits of this smoothie are obvious, but this citrusy green mix is also especially high in iron and folate. Necessary for optimal brain function, folate is especially important for pregnant and nursing women.

3. Coconut Craziness

Adding the flesh of the coconut and the coconut milk to this smoothie results in a sweet flavor that complements the iceberg nicely. This smoothie will make you crave coconuts like crazy!

YIELDS: 3–4 CUPS
