Pregnancy Smoothie Ingredients


Ginger has been shown to help ease nausea and vomiting, the not-so-fun side-effects that accompany the first trimester for many mamas. It is safe during pregnancy, although the best dosage and frequency are still debated. I suffered from morning sickness from week 6 to week 13 during my pregnancy. A daily dose of ginger tea or ginger thrown in a smoothie helped settle my queasy stomach.


Flaxseeds provide a dose of omega-3 fats which are really important during pregnancy for baby’s development. Be sure you’re eating omega-3-rich foods daily! A few tablespoons of flaxseeds can help meet your ALA (a type of omega-3s) needs.


For most women, salads packed with leafy greens are not very appetizing when morning sickness is present. Throwing a handful of spinach in this smoothie helps you cover your leafy green bases in a much more palatable way! Spinach contains iron and calcium – both important during pregnancy.


There are some myths floating around about pineapple and pregnancy, but rest assured this tropical fruit is safe while you’re expecting. In fact, it’s a great source of vitamin C, antioxidants, and fiber.

Silken Tofu

Not only does silken tofu add creaminess, it also adds a protein boost to this Pregnancy Smoothie. Since protein needs go up by as much as 25 grams per day, including a protein source with every meal and snack is a smart idea during pregnancy. Look for firm or extra-firm silken tofu for the best protein boost.


Bananas add sweetness and creaminess to this smoothie, but they also offer many nutritional benefits. The fiber helps keep you regular, and the potassium and folate support baby’s brain development. Bananas may also help settle an upset stomach.

Vegan Pregnancy Smoothie Recipe
