A woman's body requires additional nutrients during pregnancy that women do not usually need when they are not pregnant. During pregnancy, the body becomes depleted in iron, folate, vitamin C and fiber, and it is important to consume these essential nutrients for the baby's health as well as her own.
This smoothie is a simple and versatile way to ensure nutrient needs are met, and overall health is being maintained during pregnancy. All you need is a blender!
Tear dark leafy green of choice into small pieces and place in blender
Add pineapple chunks and avocado to leafy greens
Place Kifer in blender with other ingredients
Squeeze lemon on top of all ingredients and blend together
Serve and enjoy!
