Ingredients

  • 1 cup milk (I prefer nondairy)
  • 1 cup frozen mango cubes
  • 2 tablespoons fresh or frozen diced avocado
  • 2 tablespoons hemp seeds
  • 1/4 cup frozen kale leaves
  • maple syrup (optional to taste)

Instructions

  • Add the ingredients to the blender.
  • Blend smooth, starting on low and working up to high. (Use the stick that came with the blender or stop and start as needed if the mixture needs any encouragement to blend up.)
  • Taste and add a little maple syrup for sweetness if needed
  • Serve immediately.

Notes

  • Blueberry Pregnancy Smoothie: Substitute frozen blueberries for the mango.
  • Banana Pregnancy Smoothie: Use 1 cup frozen banana slices for the mango.
  • Banana Strawberry Pregnancy Smoothie: Use 1/2 cup sliced fresh banana and 1/2 cup frozen strawberries.
  • Chocolate Banana Pregnancy Smoothie: Use 1 cup frozen banana slices for the mango and add 1 tablespoon cocoa powder and 1 tablespoon maple syrup.
  • Mango Pineapple Pregnancy Smoothie: Use 1/2 cup fresh pineapple cubes and 1/2 cup frozen mango cubes.
  • Add a splash or orange juice for additional sweetness.
  • To add more protein to your pregnancy smoothie, add a scoop of protein powder or 1-2 tablespoons nut or seed butter like peanut butter, almond butter, sunflower seed butter, or cashew butter.
  • Use kefir in place of the milk for probiotics.
  • Add 2 tablespoons hemp or flax or fish oil for additional fats.
