Protein Punch Pregnancy Smoothie

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!

Hidden in this delicious protein punch pregnancy smoothie is one of my favorite pregnancy super foods - chia seeds! Save this recipe for later for sure.

Pregnancy Super Food!

Hidden in this delicious pregnancy smoothie is one of my favorite pregnancy super foodschia 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!

Dairy Free

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 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....

I'm pregnant with my 6 th baby and I make a lot of smoothies but haven't tried this one yet. I like to make one for an afternoon snack with cashew milk,peanut butter, agave, ice and cocoa nibs. The cocoa nibs have so much good stuff and make it chocolate flavor! I can't wait to try this with chia seeds!

Let me know what you think!

I didn’t have chia seeds on hand but I did have chia seed oil and I didn’t have cinnamon. This smoothie is so delicious. I was wondering how the almond milk and chia seed oil would hold up together but they blended so well together.
