I’m on a mission to come up with some perfect smoothie blends for my daughter and me. This one is a winner! Spinach adds a beautiful bright green color, but you can’t taste it at all when pineapple is involved.

I call this one Berry Glad You Can’t Taste The Cabbage. Ha. I swear, you can’t! Why cabbage? Cabbage and other cruciferous vegetables are good sources of glucosinolates that hydrolyze to indole-3-carbinol and isothiocyanate. Both are researched in cancer prevention, especially hormone-sensitive cancers. They’re also great for metabolic detoxification and liver support.
This rich, chocolaty shake is both satisfying and nourishing. If you’re like me, chocolate hits the spot when you’re pregnant. This superfood shake provides great nutrition during pregnancy, and I often drink it for breakfast. It’s full of magnesium, one of my favorite supplements for expectant mothers.
Making your own almond milk is easy peasy. But keep in mind that there are no preservatives, so it doesn’t last much longer than 3-4 days in your refrigerator. My go-to recipe is from Against All Grain. I have a Vitamix, which comes in handy here.
