Prenatal Protein Shakes

Category

This prenatal protein frappuccino is better than Starbucks and a million times better for you. I am obsessed with this shake, and of course I look forward to my afternoon pick-me-up. This is the perfect afternoon protein shake, and you can use a decaf coffee if you are limiting caffeine during your pregnancy.

I personally drink about 1.5 cups of coffee a day. I like a cup or so in the morning, and just a bit in the afternoon. I’ve been drinking a little coffee through pregnancy for my past three pregnancies now. I gave up caffeine of course with the first pregnancy, then learned that a little coffee or caffeine isn’t a big deal. The issue comes in more with tons of caffeine, especially when your body isn’t accostomed to lots of caffeine.

Notes

Keyword prenatal frappuccino, prenatal protein shake

I seriously love this protein shake in the summer for those long, hot afternoons! It is so refreshing, and just the perfect pick-me-up for a pregnant mama!

If you like this recipe, make sure to check out my top 8 prenatal protein smoothies, where I have a full list of super yummy recipes!

If you are struggling with naseau, don’t worry, I did too! I still get it a bit sometimes, and here are some foods I like to eat when I am nauseas. 

You may also be wondering if protein powder is safe during pregnancy.

In my opinion, it is so much safer than so many other things! Thing about all the chemicals, flavorings and other junk in the processed, packaged foods we eat? My protein powder is FULL of nutrient-dense ingredients that are meant to nourish your body. Protein powder is an amazing option for pregnant mamas to get in the extra protien necessary, when other sources like meat or eggs do not sound good!

Smoothies during pregnancy are an amazing way to get in a lot of nutrients, while also satisfying cravings! Cravings can be extremely difficult during pregnancy, and I know I crave all the salty chips and french fries. I could live off of nachos if I let myself. Smoothies are like my secret weapon to combatting those cravings. I love a protein-packed smoothie because protein and fiber are the key to making you feel full and satisfied.

I decided to do a round up of my favorite pregnancy smoothies, which I always add my prentatl protein powder, Bump Dust to these shakes. I specifically formulated this protein powder to nourish prenatal mamas, support uterus strength, combat cravings, and keep you full on lots of protein with little sugar!

I do have a prenatal recipe ebook coming out soon as well, which will have even more smoothie recipes for you to stay healthy and fit all pregnancy!

This is a super simple strawberry smoothie that I love. I make it with fresh strawberries, and a tiny bit of frozen strawberries or raspberries. Either one works really well.
