Few things can be as uncomfortable as being pregnant in the height of a summer heat wave. Why not cool down with a nutritious snack that will satisfy your sweet tooth and be healthy for your baby? Smoothies are a great way to pack fruit, calcium and fiber into one tasty treat that is easy to prepare. To make it even easier, keep bags of frozen fruit that are ready to pop in the blender when you feel a craving coming on for an ice cold, guilt-free indulgence.
