Refreshing Citrus Smoothie Recipe for Pregnant Women

Eating healthy and nutritious food during pregnancy is not difficult if you know how to trick your mind and palate in to eating them. Is morning sickness taking over your taste buds and giving a hard time for your appetite? Here is a healthy and tasty remedy to tackle this – Citrus Smoothie.

Citrus fruits are known for their ability to check nausea and vomiting in pregnant women. They are also loaded with vitamins and minerals, providing a nutritional boost. Smoothies are also easy to have even when you skip your breakfast.

Citrus Smoothie Recipe


  • Freshly squeezed orange juice – 1 cup (3 oranges)
  • Freshly squeezed lime juice – 1 tablespoon
  • Diced Strawberries (top removed) – ¾ cup
  • Ripe banana – 1
  • Ice and water

Add all the ingredients and blend in a mixer till it becomes smooth.  Serve fresh.
Although citrus smoothie is good, do not have it every day. It is advisable to eat as fruits to get the fibre content rather than having it as juice. Try to eat more fresh fruits during pregnancy to avoid constipation, gestational diabetes etc.
