What Makes Our Smoothies Different?
Our Smoothies are 96% sugar free, 100% fructose free and 100% artificial sweetener free. They’re also safe for breastfeeding.
But when it comes to comparing Healthy Mummy Smoothies to other meal-replacement shakes and smoothies, it can get a bit confusing. That’s why we have put together a list of ten reasons why our smoothies are different.
Take a look at a comparison table to other brands here.
1. They’re free from accelerants and fillers
Many other brands contain fillers and weight loss accelerators – but not Healthy Mummy Smoothies. Fillers can lead to short-term unhealthy weight loss, which is just not The Healthy Mummy is about.
2. They’re made with whole foods
Packed with more than 25 vitamins and minerals, Healthy Mummy Smoothies contain whole foods and nothing artificial.
Each ingredient has been selected to support mums (including those who are breastfeeding). Many other brands use poor-quality ingredients that are cheap to use, but don’t offer the nutritional support that mums need.
Many bulk out their products with sugar or fillers, which is not in line with healthy long-term weight loss. Healthy Mummy Smoothies are 96% sugar-free, less than any of our competitors and they are filler-free.
3. They’re free from wheat and dairy
Many people are allergic or sensitive to certain foods, and that’s why our Smoothies contain NO WHEAT and NO DAIRY.
4. They’re made to support breastfeeding
Our Smoothies contain NO CAFFEINE and NO WEIGHT LOSS ACCELERANTS. This makes it absolutely ideal for breastfeeding mothers. Other ingredients that we have added, such as fenugreek, were specifically chosen to help support milk supply.
We get great feedback from mums who report that their milk supply has improved since using Healthy Mummy Smoothies.
If you have concerns about your allergies or intolerances for you or your baby, it is advisable to speak to your doctor first before starting on the smoothies.
5. They’re a genuine meal replacement drink
Some smoothies on the market are just protein shakes or supplements. They aren’t considered an adequate supply of nutrition to be considered a genuine meal-replacement drink.
Our Smoothies are specifically formulated as a meal-replacement, and have passed International Food Standards. You can see a comparison table with other shakes here.
6. You can lose weight the healthy way (results may vary)
As you will see from the fantastic results, Mums across the world are enjoying the health benefits that come with it, including weight loss.
Many mums like to use the Smoothies in conjunction with our 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.
7. They make a fast breakfast
1 in 2 mums are skipping breakfast due to time restrictions or tiredness. This has a negative impact on weight loss, health and metabolism.
If you have two minutes to spare in the morning, the Healthy Mummy Smoothie is a fast, delicious and nutritious way to start your day.
Enjoy the smoothies even if you are following the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge. Our plans are 100% customisable so you can either make a smoothie for breakfast or lunch, or prepare something from our recipe selection.
8. They’re packed with incredible ingredients
Healthy Mummy Smoothies are made from whole food ingredients:

The natural ingredients in Healthy Mummy Smoothies help you to feel fuller for longer, meaning you’re less likely to over-indulge or snack when you aren’t actually hungry. They will help your body’s digestion and elimination, an essential part of healthy weight loss.
