Summer Smoothies

Three different summer smoothies

Throughout my pregnancy, I have really enjoyed snacking on smoothies. I have found that I can’t digest large meals very easily, and feel much better when spreading my food intake throughout the day. So for my mid-morning and mid-afternoon snacks, I’ve naturally opted for healthy options to nourish mine and my little babe’s body, and this is when smoothies have been the perfect partner.

Admittedly, with the weather being scorching at the moment, a cool and hydrating drink is the obvious option. Below you will find three different ideas, using beautiful summer produce. Don’t hesitate to share other favourite of yours in the comments.

Happy summer! x
