Since there is no known safe amount of alcohol a pregnant woman can consume, avoiding it when you’re trying to conceive is best. Does that make for a boring holiday? Not at all. Try these ideas:
Pomegranate Fizz – mix some seltzer with pomegranate juice and add a slice of lime or a drop of lime sherbet, or both.
Mango Lassi – Blend together mango nectar, a touch of powdered sugar, water and yogurt
Mulled cider – heat apple cider with clove, cinnamon and a touch of allspice or nutmeg. It’s good served hot or cold.
Smoothies – buzz up some non-fat yogurt with OJ or cranberry, add fresh fruit
Pineapple juice and coconut milk over chipped ice make a yummy non-alchy pina colada.
Creamsicle in a glass – blended OJ and vanilla ice cream
Apricot nectar, OJ and ginger ale make a heavenly sunrise, especially with a cherry at the bottom of the glass.
