Quick Results Lactation Smoothie

Quick Results Lactation Smoothie

 

UPDATE: I don’t normally do this, but I just couldn’t hold myself back. People are really laying on the harsh comments over this smoothie on social media! So just to clarify, this isn’t a sit-by-the-pool-and-sip-a-delicious-smoothie kind of drink. It isn’t made with the intention to taste like a slice of cake. It is intended to help increase your breast milk, mamas! With that being said, it has ingredients that you have most likely never had in drink form before and can be off putting.  Add berries, add yogurt, add whatever you would like to mask the taste of the brewer’s yeast. Also, once you’ve had the smoothie and see the positive results, let us know in the comments! End rant. Love y’all. 

I knew this day was coming. I cannot bring myself to eat another bowl of oatmeal for breakfast. I have had it almost every morning for the past four and a half months in order to help maintain my milk supply, but I just can’t stomach it any more. So I have been trying out a few different smoothie recipes and modifying them by adding some of my favorite ingredients and I have finally found the perfect combination to help boost milk supply FAST!  You can sweeten the taste by adding additional fruits or berries, but I wouldn’t remove any of the key ingredients as it won’t have the same effects!

Ingredients

Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until desired consistency. You can also add the oats to the blender first and grind for a smoother texture. I also am continuing to use the 2 other lactation support supplements: Let There be Milk and Fenugreek.

      Hi Nakita! By the next morning I felt more fullness than I had in the past 3-4 days. Previously I had just been eating oatmeal but I think adding in the brewers yeast and flax seed really helped with production!

      Hey Sarah! I prefer to buy it on Amazon just because it is a few bucks cheaper but if you need it quickly you can usually find it at a Whole Foods.

    I tried this today with 1 and 1/2 tbsp of brewers yeast and a very ripe banana. It’s actually not as bad as I thought it was going to! Can’t wait to see my milk supply increase 🙂 thanks for sharing!

    • Caroline @ Swaddles n' Bottles says:

      Hi Brittany! Thanks for sharing the feedback! I had one other person tell me that banana helped the taste as well! Thanks for taking the time to read and comment!

    • Caroline @ Swaddles n' Bottles says:

      I have it about 2-3 times a week now. I would highly recommend the Let There Be Milk Supplement if you are needing big results. I have been BF for almost 8 months now and still depend on it! Hope this helps!

    I will be trying this tomorrow (when my brewer’s yeast arrives). I hope it helps as I am really struggling to feed my baby now. Do you think I can use regular milk or does it have to be almond milk? Thanks

    • Caroline @ Swaddles n' Bottles says:

      Hi Diana! I use almond just because my baby was really sensitive to lactose products early on. I believe regular milk would work just fine. be sure to check out the post on how I doubled my breast milk production for some other wonderful products that I still use today. I know it can be tough, I seriously struggled with milk production early on. But hang in there! You are doing great!

    Just made and actually enjoy it! I used vanilla almond milk the steel cut oats I had on hand and a splash of Hershey’s syrup to try to mask the Brewer’s yeast. I too had been on the oatmeal band wagon and was hoping for a change of pace. I would definitely make it again. Here’s hoping for some results now! Thanks for posting the recipe!
