Nutritional Drink for Pregnancy

READY IN: 2mins
Recipe by 3KillerBs

16 years ago when I was pregnant with my first child my CNM gave me this recipe for a nutritional drink. I always found that I could get it down even when I had morning sickness and I credit it for my kids' great health even when I was so queasy I could eat almost nothing. The CNM recommended whole milk because the fat in the milk improves the absorption of the calcium and other nutrients. I usually left out the fruit because sweet things made me queasy.

I'm anaemic and this is a nice easy way of getting a big hit of iron in one go. Doesn't taste too bad either!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all ingredients in a blender until smooth. (If you aren't using the fruit you can just stir it up with a spoon).
  2. Both nutritional yeast and blackstrap molasses are strong flavors. If you aren't accustomed to them use less at first and increase the strength a little at a time as you get used to them.
  3. If you can't drink it all at once it will keep in the fridge all day -- just stir it up again as needed.
