Just like sneakers or bags, the drink you hold in your hand tells a story about who you are. Smart Water or Poland Springs? Juice Press or Pressed Juicery? Diet Coke or Diet Pepsi? (Kidding!)

And for pregnant women—specifically, wellness-obsessed, nutritionally savvy famous pregnant women—the drink du jour is a smoothie from the SoCal organic cafe, Beaming.

Famous moms-to-be like Molly Sims and Chrissy Teigen have been getting straw-happy over the appropriately named Knocked Up, a smoothie created in collaboration with LA-based doula, healer, and pregnancy coach Lori Bregman. (She also created for them the Get Preggy blend, packed with nutrients specifically helpful for those who are looking to conceive—consider it the bump watch precursor.)

The Knocked Up smoothie is filled with superfood staples like avocados, goji berries, and almond butter, along with ingredients specifically selected for their pregnancy-boosting benefits: think spinach (high in birth defect-preventing folic acid), dates (a natural energy booster and—yup—constipation aid), and E3Live (an algae said to purify the body of environmental toxins).

Bregman, author of The Mindful Mom-to-Be and doula to the likes of Sims, Kelly Rowland, and Kristen Bell, dreamed up the Knocked Up beverage after one of her previous recipes went viral. “Many women attributed their becoming pregnant to my Fertility Smoothie,” she says, adding, “I wanted to create a smoothie that was packed with all the things a pregnant woman needs to feed her growing baby and help her thrive though pregnancy. I also needed it to taste delicious, as many expectant moms have food aversions or suffer from morning sickness.”

And you don’t have to be in LA to look as good as Chrissy Teigen does eight months into her pregnancy; Bregman shared with us her drinkable secret.
