Giveaway & Review: Premama Prenatal Vitamin Drink Mix Mommy more horsepills!

I was eager to get my Premama Prenatal Drink Mix and check it out when I heard that I was chosen to host a MommyParty recently.  I have tons of mom friends who were excited about a new prenatal vitamin option so the timing was perfect this past weekend when a bunch of us were free.  MomSelect and Premama sent me an adorable Party Kit to get things started.  They included some yummy drink ideas, easy appetizers and a delicious crumb cake recipe.  They also gave me an idea for a Blind Beverage Taste Test.  A nice Sunday afternoon get together with some light snacks and fun drinks with the girls.  Perfect!

Just so you know, I am not preggers right now but I clearly remember those giant horse pill prenatal vitamins that were the requirement up until recently. Yuck. There just weren't any other options so we all just took them.  No way out of it.  They were definitely not fun to take especially with morning all day sickness that just seemed to drag on forever!  I so wish that Premama was around back when I was pregnant because we all know that Prenatal health is so important for both mom and baby.
Everyone was interested to hear that Premama Prenatal Vitamin Drink Mix is a  flavorless powdered prenatal supplement that eliminates the need to swallow a pill. Premama can be easily mixed with juice, iced tea, sports drinks, smoothies,shakes and so much more!  We tried it with orange juice, apple juice, cranberry juice and milk.

I prepped a few fun party drink recipes for my guests.  The ladies were amazed that you can actually can mix Premama with any kind of liquid you like.  Keep in mind that it is unflavored so you might want to choose something with flavor. Each cute little stick packet has two servings so you can even split them up to take during the day.  I had already tried it mixed into my morning smoothie the day before (bananas and Greek yogurt with a few blueberries for good measure) so I knew it tasted great.  One of the yummy drink recipes I made for my Premama MommyParty was the Cherry-Almond Smoothie below:

1 cup frozen organic pitted black cherries
¾ cup soy or organic skim milk
1 tablespoon unsalted almond or soynut butter
1 teaspoon maple syrup (optional)
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract (if not using vanilla soy milk)

In a blender (or the small work bowl of a food processor), puree the ingredients until smooth. You can add the Premama before or after blending. Serve cold.

All the ladies were impressed to hear that the ingredients found in Premama Prenatal Vitamin Drink Mix are proven to reduce the risk of some birth defects by 70% or more:
  • Folic Acid to help reduce the risk of neural tube defects
  • Chelated iron for healthy blood cell formation
  • Vitamin D3 for bone health and immune function
  • Coenzyme Q10 to help reduce the risk of pre-eclampsia
  • Ginger root to help with nausea relief
  • Many more vitamins and minerals to support healthy fetal growth

We had a fun time learning more about Premama and seeing how easily it can be added to any of our regular drinks.  Check out Premama and get going taking those healthy and yummy vitamins for your baby's good health.  You can use the code Sweepstakes2013 for an extra 15% discount too!

The Ginger root to help with nausea is a great idea!

I agree. I hate the taste of ginger.. so I think having it in something I am already taking will make it easier and maybe reduce sickness.
