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.
This protein shake is made with of course my Bump Dust protein powder, which is formulated for pregnant mamas to help curb sugar cravings, provide important nutrients and maintain your weight! At only 100 calories per serving, you can make this amazing frappuccinno for under 200 calories! YES!

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!
