Currently, I have two clients. One of my clients is in her third trimester, and has yet to experience morning sickness. I know, she is EXTREMELY blessed. Be jealous.
My other client, however, is 20 weeks along and STILL experiencing morning sickness. Poor. Thing. She tried the suckers, and just about every wives tale out there. She has yet to experience relief.
After scouring through Pinterest, I came across this recipe for Nausea pops. I decided to create my own recipe, and try to get my momma-to-be some relief!
First, I chopped the fruit. I ate a piece of each to make sure everything was fresh, and held my standards to give to my clients. I even tried the banana. Anyone who knows me understands why this is a BIG DEAL, as they are literally the only food I can think of that I do not like. Next, I added the Chiobani blueberry Greek yogurt.
Then, I peeled and grated the ginger. This was the most time-consuming part of the experience, but this is the key ingredient that will hopefully bring my girl some relief. Hopefully!
Then I added two ingredients that stray from the original recipe. Rather than apple juice, I chose V8 Splash Mango Peach to give the popsicles some sweetness and flavor. Next I added the final, “secret” ingredient: Ginger Wonder. This stuff is expensive, around $15 for the bottle from Wholefoods. Again, if it works, what a lovely investment
Once blended, I poured them into these adorable popsicle molds I found at Bed Bath & Beyond. After a couple of hours, they were solid, and ready to combat morning sickness. (Word to the wise, if you make popsicles at home and have trouble getting the popsicle out of the mold, run under warm water for a few seconds, rather than breaking the whole mold, like my husband did ) Let’s hope they do the trick!
- 1 16 oz. container of strawberries
- 2 bananas
- 1 mango
- 1 individual container of Chiobani blueberry Greek yogurt
- 1 Tbs fresh grated ginger
- 1 Tbs Ginger Wonder syrup
- 1 cup V8 Splash Mango Peach juice
I made one for my husband and me to try. Even if they don’t miraculously cure morning sickness, they are a tasty, healthy, homemade treat! Enjoy!
