During my first trimester, I had a tough time finding a prenatal vitamin that didn’t make me want to die. This spring, Mommi 3-in-1 protein shake debuted, and preggos, you should check this out!
The team at Mommi sent me a sample packet of their vanilla protein powder to try, and so I did. Who wants to swallow horse pills every day? Not me.
If you’ve been following me on social, you’ll know that I’d been looking for a protein powder that: 1. wasn’t chalky, 2. didn’t taste bad, 3. would be safe to take while pregnant and working out. You’d have also known that I kept a list of what worked for me and what didn’t.
What Had Happened Was…
I mixed my Mommi 3-in-1 protein powder using their recipe (subbing regular milk with almond milk and adding a ton of strawberries). I filled my short Nutribullet cup with ingredients and blended it.
The result? A smooth vanilla taste with my strawberries. It’s not chalky and it blends very well. Yes, I can still taste the stevia. I think that adding extra fruit helped mask the taste. (My next experiment is to add almond butter to see if that masks it even more.) If you prefer stevia as your main sweetener, then this is a powder for you.
What’s In It or Not In It
What makes Mommi different from your standard protein powders are these factors:
- Contains your prenatal vitamins!
- Has DHA – no fishy after-taste!
- Gluten-free – which is great for those who are allergic or have IBS or celiac disease.
- No MSG!
- Contains folic acid!
- It’s got only 2.5g of sugar! (See below)
Note: It does contain whey protein.
Want to know the story behind the product? It’s a woman-owned business – yeah! The founder, Erin Schurtz, was looking for a protein powder that she could take while pregnant. (Sound familiar?) She ran into tons of products with the warning label “not recommended for pregnant women.” So she made her own. BAM. #BitchinBusiness
Here’s the breakdown on the supplements for both their chocolate and vanilla powders. Preggos, pay attention because you may need more or less in your daily intake, depending on your doctor’s recommendations. (Click to enlarge.)
My suggestion would be to check with your OB and ask if Mommi can be a supplement to your regular prenatals or if Mommi can sub for your prenatals. I’m no doctor so do your due diligence!
One last thought – there may be an additional market for Mommi – the TTC women. If you’re TTC (trying to conceive), I would love to know if you’re taking Mommi instead of a prenatal vitamin.

Many thanks to the team at Mommi for providing a sample for me. I also want to point out that they didn’t have to send out a sample for my review, even AFTER I told them about my aversion to stevia. I mean, I literally #sideeye’d Mommi’s pitch email because when I inquired about the ingredients, they told me there was stevia in it. But they had high hopes that I’d still like it, and I do. Who knew?
Anyway, what are you waiting for? Go get your sample.
