In brief: Sure.

It doesn't sound like it would have adequate calories for the woman, but should be fairly nutrient dense (watch out for too much sugar), but not harmful to the baby.
Sometimes babies can be affected by the foods their mothers eat (i.E: get constipated babies if moms eat broccoli, or drink milk).
