Nausea Pops. Pregnancy ice lollies.

Nausea Pops. The Perfect Pregnancy Ice Lolly. 

These delicious fruity little lollies are packed with vitamins and goodness. The ingredients are a mixture of amazing flavours and some select ingredients that can naturally help with sickness and nausea. 

Suggested Ingredients: (Other fruits can be added or swapped, have fun creating a flavour you love!)

3 cups strawberries

1 cup blueberries
1 cup apple juice
1 cup either water/ coconut milk / almond milk 
2 Tbsp. honey

1 Tbsp fresh grated ginger (or powdered if you can't get fresh) - has been found to reduce nausea and vomiting. 

2 bananas - Bananas can help restore potassium, which is often depleted as a result vomiting.
1/2 cup Mint Leaves - You can boil in water first, or add fresh. Mint soothes the stomach and is a wonderful natural supplement for anti nausea. (Eating boiled mint leaves also helps fight nausea and vomiting.)
Squeeze of Lemon Juice - Lemons contain neutralizing acids that help create bicarbonates in the stomach which can relieve nausea and also heart burn. 

1. Wash and chop fruit and add to blender. (If you don't mind a few lumps you can mash it all by hand with a potato masher or fork).
2. Add remaining ingredients to blender and blend on high until smooth. (Or continue to mash!)
3. Pour into ice lolly moulds/ cleaned out yoghurt pots/ cups with lolly sticks or even small spoons for a handle - what ever you can find.
4. Freeze and they are ready to enjoy!

This is a great pick me up when suffering from the dreaded Morning sickness (or all day and night sickness as it should sometimes be called). 

They are also a nice way of helping little ones' stomachs. If your child is getting through a sickness bug these can help ease the nausea and help to keep them hydrated, they will be getting fluids and vitamins along with a cool icy treat, all in one go!
