Pomo-apple-tini!

Apples are known to control gestational diabetes, i.e, sugar imbalances that occur in the body specifically during pregnancies. They also contain folates which are a necessary nutrient in the pregnancy diet and are found very rarely in some foods. Pomegranate, on the other hand, prevents any sort of iron-defeciency during the gestation period, helps in flushing the toxins out and provides relief from muscle aches and cramps. Studies also show that pomegranates also benefit the development of the baby’s brain. Blend apple slices with pomegranate seeds with a few drops of lemon. Add either sparkling water or cold water as per your craving. Add 50 ml of cranberry juice and blend it again. Serve it with a nice swirl of Roohafzah if available or even pomegranate seeds splayed above with cut apple slices.
