Ah pregnancy, the time of magical goings on, plenty of stress and drama and no alcohol to help deal!!
I wouldn’t call myself a heavy drinker, during the week I will have some wine here or there but on the weekends is where I really shine (or used to!) Now I am in the stage of incubator-ness I choose to be alcohol-free as recommended. Although I don’t miss the alcohol per se, I do miss the social aspect as well as some of the tastes! I love cocktails and fruity drinks (and obviously wine) and so for me, that’s the hardest part about alcohol-free drinking!
So, as all women do, I searched for some fab drinks I could get behind while pregnant. Obviously, we are a big fan of smoothies and they are really delicious so I have been experimenting outside of the week’s worth of smoothie recipes I have posted before and went on the hunt for some mocktails that can make me feel included next time I am at a function. If you are hosting a party, give a thought to the alcohol-free drinkers who may like a more interesting option than juice or water (pleaseeee!) trust me, they will really appreciate it.
So whether you are hosting a non-drinker, pregnant lady, kids or are looking for some fun drinks to try out without booze in them, here’s a fab list to start you off!

Cotton Candy Mocktail
1…2…3 Banana and Honey Smoothie
