Tropical Electrolyte Smoothie

This smoothie contains a mixture of fats, proteins and carbohydrates to ensure steady blood sugar levels throughout the day. It contains ingredients which are anti-inflammatory and promote wound healing as well as helping to reduce morning sickness (ginger). The coconut water is also a great source of electrolytes which can often be overlooked in our prenatal to postpartum period.

Ingredients:

- 500 ml coconut water

- 1/2 cup of pineapple (frozen or fresh)

- 1/2 an avocado
