Famous mums-to-be like Molly Sims and Chrissy Teigen have been getting straw-happy over the appropriately named Knocked Up, a concoction created in collaboration with uber-trendy organic café Beaming and LA-based doula, healer, and pregnancy coach Lori Bregman.
A follow-up to Lori’s equally popular fertility potion, The Knocked Up smoothie is filled with superfood staples like avocados, goji berries, and almond butter.
It also contains ingredients specifically selected for their pregnancy-boosting benefits, such as spinach (high in birth defect-preventing folic acid), dates (a natural energy booster and—yup—constipation aid), and E3Live (an algae said to purify the body of environmental toxins).
Lori, author of The Mindful Mum-to-Be and doula to the likes of Molly Sims, Kelly Rowland, and Kristen Bell, says she was looking for a potent sequel to her Fertility Smoothie which went viral in 2014.
“Many women attributed their becoming pregnant to my Fertility Smoothie,” she says.
“I wanted to create a smoothie that was packed with all the things a pregnant woman needs to feed her growing baby and help her thrive though pregnancy. I also needed it to taste delicious, as many expectant moms have food aversions or suffer from morning sickness.”
The good news is, you also don’t need to be in LA to look as good as Chrissy Tiegen, above, does either, eight months into her pregnancy.
Lori shared her creation with wellandgood.com.
