7 Delicious and Nutritious Pregnancy Smoothies


We’re just going to go out and say it: Smoothies might just be the perfect pregnancy food. Endlessly versatile and packed with nutrition, smoothies can be whipped up in a handful of minutes and are as easy to take with you as they are to sit and sip. And when your belly is saying no to just about everything, the whirled coldness of a smoothie can be the soothing it desperately needs. That’s why we love these pregnancy smoothies.

When you’re growing another human, it’s especially important to choose your foods carefully: you want a variety of fruits and veggies, plenty of calcium and protein sources, and vitamins like crazy, particularly those like folate, iron, and vitamin C. But morning sickness and food aversions can sometimes make this easier said than done, right? Blending ingredients can make challenging foods a little more palatable.

These tasty pregnancy smoothies have the nutrition your body needs most right now. And with no more than five ingredients each, they’re quick and easy.

Beetroot, Pomegranate, and Orange Smoothie

This anti-inflammatory smoothie (we see you, sore joints and swollen ankles!) is packed with antioxidants, vitamin C, and folate. Plus, a study suggests pomegranate could play a role in healthy births.

Triple Berry Yogurt Bliss Smoothie

Sip this pretty smoothie for some of the calcium and protein your baby (and you!) need to grow strong bones and muscles.

Fresh Citrus Pregnancy Smoothie

Load up on the Vitamin C your baby needs to build collagen and help absorb iron (this is true for you too, mama!). Plus, those potassium-packed bananas help prevent cramps.

Fruity Flax Smoothie Pregnancy Smoothie

The flax seeds in this smoothie contain Omega 3’s, great for brain and heart health.

Peanut Butter Split Pregnancy Smoothie

The peanut butter in this hearty meal replacement is a rich source of protein, folate, fiber, and vitamin E. Throw in a banana for sweetness (and potassium!), and sneak in a handful of superfood spinach to create a rich, health-in-a-glass shake.

Creamy Avocado Pregnancy Smoothie

Superfood avocados are rich in “good” fat, fiber, folate, Vitamin E, and more. Whirl one together with another superfood, iron- and folate-rich spinach, plus protein-packed yogurt and a dollop of sweet honey, for a creamy, superhealthy delight.

Outrageous Orange Pregnancy Smoothie

This two-fer packs the superfood punch of spinach, plus the Vitamin C from the oranges helps the body absorb iron from those leafy greens.
