Berry Smoothie Recipe
This delicious berry smoothie is the ideal choice for breakfast & is packed full of calcium and protein, found in the milk & yogurt.
Calcium helps to build strong bones for your little one, and amino acids from protein are the building blocks for your baby’s cells, so it’s vital to get plenty through pregnancy – especially in your second and third trimesters.

Green Smoothie Recipe
The ultimate fresh-tasting folate-filled recipe, this one provides the perfect vitamin boost for pregnancy.
Vitamin A and C from the mango & orange juice will boost your immune system and help you to absorb as much iron as possible from your food. During pregnancy you need more iron than usual, as you’ll have up to 50% more blood pumping around your body.
And that’s where the spinach comes in! Spinach provides iron and plenty of folate, which is essential for your baby’s developing brain and spinal cord.
Vegan Chocolate Smoothie Recipe
And for something a little more indulgent, try this delicious vegan variation on the classic chocolate milkshake!
It may sound too good to be true, but this chocolatey delight is loaded with protein, potassium & fibre. Nuts are rich in protein and fibre, so peanut butter and almond milk will help with your baby’s healthy development, as well as aiding your own digestive system.
And of course bananas are a fantastic source of potassium, which you need to maintain the balance of electrolytes within your body.
