During pregnancy, our bodies use a lot of nutrients that need to be bulked up on or replenished after birth. Sometimes this can be a daunting task as a new mom is adjusting to a new baby and trying to rearrange her life to incorporate a new little one. One of the easiest ways to get what we need to keep both ourselves and our new babies going healthy is to enjoy a quick smoothie.
Nutrients included in this recipe include omega-3 fats(good for a new mom and breastfeeding baby), Vitamin B6, folate, vitamin C, and iron. All of which may be low after a new baby is born.
