This amazing protein punch pregnancy smoothie must be added to the daily culinary repertoire. I know you’ll love it!
Protein Punch Pregnancy Smoothie
Protein and pregnant ladies go together like peas and carrots. If mama’s not getting enough protein, trust me, she’s not going to feel good!
In the first and second trimesters, regular, frequent meals and snacks containing protein can help alleviate morning sickness. In the third trimester, a this smoothie will help prevent a typically kind woman from becoming pregnant-zilla-monster.
Mother Rising’s Protein Punch Pregnancy Smoothie is simple and fast to make, and can help meet the daily protein requirement for a pregnant woman!
Pregnancy Super Food!
Hidden in this delicious pregnancy smoothie is one of my favorite pregnancy super foods – chia seeds!
Despite their tiny size, chia seeds are among the most nutritious foods on the planet. They are loaded with fiber, protein, Omega-3 fatty acids and various micronutrients.
My favorite way to eat chia seeds is either in a smoothie or in a yogurt like the picture above. Really, the options are endless. Chia seeds expand when wet and create a fun tecture to food. Have fun with this one!
In this recipe, instead of milk I used cashew milk, however, feel free to substitute any another “milk” that you prefer! Almond, cow’s milk or even coconut milk sound delicious. Which is your favorite?
I chose cashew milk because it gives my body a break from dairy products, but is one of the more thicker nut milks which kept this smoothie nice and creamy. Yum!
This protein punch pregnancy smoothie is refreshing and delicious, but also packed with protein, energy and chia seeds – a pregnancy super food! The smoothie is best served immediately, however, you can always store leftovers in the fridge with a tight fitting lid.

This should not be marketed as a protein shake, this is a fat shake. 71g of fat & nearly 1000 calories per serving!-that is not healthy and 33g of protein per ~1000 calories is not protein packed. There are so many better ways to use 1000 calories than 80% of it being peanut butter. Maybe Swap out some of that insane amount of peanut butter for some light Greek yogurt. Encouraging women to eat this like it’s healthy is misleading & I guarantee leading to a lot of them waaay overeating.

I'm 7 and a half weeks with no morning sickness so far (knock on wood). I cut the peanut butter down to 2 tablespoons of Teddy's natural peanut butter so it's 422 calories rather than 980. I'm struggling with low appetite in my first trimester but I don't want to get all my calories in 1 meal. I like this recipe because I'm not a breakfast person so its something quick and easy I can make every morning.

This sounds amazing but WHOA, 980 calories in one smoothie! Probably best for first trimester when it is hard to keep food and calorie count up. Otherwise this is like half of my daily intake....
