Expectant mother Kerry Washington stays healthy by drinking green smoothies.

Washington and fellow actress Drew Barrymore are big fans of nutritionist Kimberly Snyder’s organic smoothies. Washington’s favorite blend, the Glowing Green Smoothie, is packed with greens and is sweetened naturally with fruit.

“I am not a vegan, but I like vegan protein shakes,” Washington said. “I mix them with coconut water instead of regular water. That’s my secret to having them taste better.”

The “Scandal” star also frequents Snyder’s Glow Bio juice and smoothie bar in Los Angeles for quinoa “fried rice,” which is made with fresh ingredients and ten different vegetables.

”I try for the most part to eat things that are going to make me feel better, not worse,” Washington said.

When it comes to snacking, the 36-year-old mom to be has one clear favorite:

“I love popcorn. I could live on popcorn. The writers of Scandal have made my character Olivia Pope have a similar relationship with popcorn. But I don’t mind because I get to eat popcorn at work.”
