A tasty blend of macro- and micro-nutrients!
The nutrients you absorb through food can be far superior to those in the prenatal vitamins you take faithfully — especially if your vitamins are making you sick. This smoothie is easy on the stomach and high in nutrients, so you can be doubly sure your baby will reap its nutritional benefits.
The key ingredient is avocado, which has just the right mix of macro- and micro-nutrients. Nature created avocados to be perfectly proportioned with fiber, fat, carbohydrates and protein. Avocados also have an amazing blend of the micro-nutrients that you need during your pregnancy, including vitamin K, naturally occurring folate, potassium, vitamin B and vitamin C.
