"Mocktails" for moms-to-be!

In honor of the holiday weekend, I thought I would provide my mommy readers with some yummy "mocktail"recipes to enjoy!

One of my aunts bought me this cute book when she found out I was pregnant:




Here are some of my favorite recipes from the book:

Watermelon Margarita
1 c frozen watermelon chunks
5 oz ginger ale
1 T lime juice
watermelon slices for garnish

Put all ingredients into blender and blend until smooth. Garnish with a watermelon slice and enjoy! Did you know that watermelon helps with water retention too? Bonus!

Strawberry Pina Colada
4-5 fresh or frozen strawberries
5 oz pineapple juice
2 T coconut cream
1/2 c ice
pineapple wedges for garnish

Put all ingredients into blender and blend until smooth. Garnish with pineapple and enjoy!

Pregnant Peach
1/2 c ice
1/2 c frozen peach slices
6 oz lemonade
4 oz iced tea
2 oz peach juice
peach slices for garnish

Once again...just put all of your ingredients into the blender and blend until smooth! Finish off your fancy glass with a peach slice.

Margarita Mama
kosher salt
12 oz frozen limeade
6 oz orange juice
10 oz water
2 oz peach juice
8 oz ginger ale
1 c ice
lime wedges for garnish

Put all ingredients into blender (minus the salt) and blend until smooth. Rim your glasses with salt, pour your drink and enjoy! This recipe makes enough for 6 people, so share some with your mommy friends!

If you want to see more recipes, you can buy the book here.

I hope everyone has a fun and safe Labor Day weekend!
