Updated Morning Smoothie Recipe- Safe for Pregnancy

Adjustments to Smoothie Ingredients

*Original ingredients in black.
*Changes in purple.
*Original smoothie recipe posted here.

  • Half of a banana
  • 1/2 c. non-animal milk (I've used hemp, almond, soy, rice, and coconut water)
  • 1-2 tbsp. flax oil
    • Not anymore
  • 1 tbsp. raw maca powder
    • Not anymore (this may be unsafe for pregnancy) 
  • 1 tbsp. raw cacao powder
    • Not anymore. Instead, I use a squirt of Santa Cruz's organic vegan chocolate sauce. This doubles as a sweetener, which comes from invert sugar. 
  • 2 tbsp. protein powder (This is half a serving. I use Hemp.)
    • Why did I ever use half a serving?! I am using 4 tablespoons, the full serving, now. 
  • 1 tbsp. agave
    • Not anymore! (Could cause contractions) I have used a few drops of stevia or just the Santa Cruz chocolate sauce. 
  • 1/2 tbsp. coconut oil
    • I have stopped using any coconut oil. I decided I want to get those calories from elsewhere in my diet. 
  • 1 tbsp. nut butter (sunflower, almond, whatever)
    • Sometimes 2 tbsp. if I feel I need a protein boost.
  • Bunch of greens! (Kale, spinach)
    • When kale is out of season, I can only buy it in these big bags that go bad before I can use it all. So, when kale is out of season, I stick to organic baby spinach in those little containers. 
  • At least three ice cubes. I use seven, thick like a milkshake.
    • I have been using 6 ice cubes for a while now
  • Optional: ground flax, Spirulina
    • I usually put in 1/4 teaspoon of Spirulina, no ground flax
