Outrageous Orange Pregnancy Smoothie

This smoothie is a delicious way to include a vital nutrient for baby in your daily pregnancy diet.

One cup of spinach provides 65 percent of your daily folate requirement during pregnancy, making this smoothie a tasty winner. In the past few decades, folate has come under the radar of health professionals as a must-have nutrient for pregnancy. It is so vital, in fact, that doctors also recommend its synthetic form, folic acid.

Folate has been linked to the development of the baby’s brain and spinal cord during pregnancy, and by getting enough of it, you’ll significantly reduce the risk of neural defects.
