Strawberry Ironman Shake

Anemia is a common condition among pregnant woman, especially me, and is caused primarily by a lack of iron. Here's a shake I came up with that's loaded with 35% of your recommended daily allowance of iron. I'm going to kick anemia's butt.

4 frozen strawberries
1/2 cup liquid (water, milk, nut milk, juice)
1 teaspoon flaxseed
1 teaspoon sesame seed
1 teaspoon hemp seed
2 tablespoons sunflower seeds
1/2 banana
1 tablespoon honey or agave nectar
4 cubes of ice

Blend until seeds are no longer visible.

Sorry that I don't have a photo, but to make it up to you, I have included a link to the nutrition information of this shake. Click HERE. Enjoy!
