I saw Maggie’s gluten-free pumpkin pie smoothie last week and, being pregnant and hungry, I couldn’t resist making a version of my own.
Not only do I love pumpkin, but this smoothie is packed with good-for-the-baby foods. Orange foods contain the phytonutrients carotenoids and bioflavonoids that can boost immunity, promote heart and eye health, and lower the only for you online pharmacy viagra risk of some cancers.
When I make a smoothie, I generally opt for almond milk or water as the liquid. I haven’t been able to touch almond milk or almond butter since I got pregnant. Many of my food aversions left after the first four months but I still have some hanging on.
I decided to use a little Greek yogurt in my smoothie, which gives just the right amount of tang to balance out the sweetness from the stevia, banana, and orange. For me, the flavor is a little more interesting and less one dimensional.
