Cheree’s review of The Healthy Mummy Pregnancy Smoothie

As pregnancy is one of my special passions, I was eager to see the new Healthy Mummy Pregnancy Smoothie. After studying the ingredients I would not hesitate to recommend it to my clients. In fact, I would probably prescribe it!

It has such a nice formula, with about 100 calories per serve (not including ingredients you combine it with), it is a perfect size for a snack. Protein content is important in a pregnancy Smoothie, as from pre-conception, through to after baby arrives, it is required in higher amounts, and this provides a really good amount of protein, with 30% of your daily intake per serve.

Normally, I don’t encourage people to have a pre-made smoothie as they are sugar laden, or full of fillers and chemicals, but The Healthy Mummy Pregnancy Smoothie has no artificial colours or preservatives and is not GMO. As it is sweetened with thuamatin, a natural sweetener from fruit, it is not artificially sweetened and has no sugar, or fructose, so will not have a negative impact on your blood sugars.”
