Iron is another important nutrient for mamas-to-be. Iron helps form baby's hemoglobin, whose job is to carry oxygen in the blood. And you don’t only get it from foods like beef, poultry and pork. Sweet and sticky blackstrap molasses contains it too. In this smoothie from Noms for the Poor, it’s mixed with chocolate and raspberry for a rich, decadent treat.
