Nourishing Pregnancy Smoothie
During pregnancy I have been aiming for a smoothie a day to get in those concentrated nutrients to nourish baby and my body. This daily nourishing pregnancy smoothie is a practice of mindful food prepping with love and so looked forward with its decadent yummy taste.
I often make extra and my toddler and I sit in the sun and enjoy our smoothies together. She refers to this time as ‘cooking juice mama’.
I have been implementing many Ayurvedic practices into my pregnancy this time around. I have detailed the Ayurvedic nutritional practices I am incorporating in my pregnancy HERE!
This smoothie each day is my way to amp up the “Ojas” meaning juiciness, life and lubrication. So lots of good fats, energetically charged nutrients and grounding components. All the ingredients for a nourishing pregnancy, birth, postpartum recovery and to help little bub to grow health & strong.
Here is a typical nourishing pregnancy smoothie in my day. I do change them up a little from day to day depending on what I feel like, whats in season, whats in my kitchen etc.. however they go something like the below.
Nourishing Pregnancy Smoothie:
1.5 cups oat milk or almond
2 handfuls of baby spinach leaves
1/2 cup fresh berries
Thumb size of fresh ginger
2 tbs hemp seeds
2 tbs ground flaxseeds
1 tbs collagen powder
2 heaped tbs coconut yogurt
2-3 dates, if I feel it needs a little more sweetness
1/4 cup pre soaked raw cashews or 1 heaped tbs almond butter
Blend in a high speed blender until smooth and serve with a sprinkle of granola.
