Quick Results Lactation Smoothie

Quick Results lactation smoothie to help increase your milk production overnight

Looking for a The ultimate guide to breastfeeding?

If you follow me on Instagram, you know I recently took the Milkology breastfeeding course and was blown away with how much I learned. My favorite section by far was called “Mastering You Milk Supply”. I would highly recommend this course to any breastfeeding mama! Here’s the link to sign up (only $19!)

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!


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!

    • Caroline @ Swaddles n' Bottles says:

      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.

  1. Brittany says:

    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!

  2. Diana Moore says:

    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!

  3. MJ says:

    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!

    • Caroline @ Swaddles n' Bottles says:

      Thanks for your feedback! I love the idea of a little chocolate syrup to sweeten things up!

  4. Amanda says:

    Do you drink the entire thing in one sitting? When I made it this morning, it made enough for two or three smoothies that I would normally have for breakfast.

    • Caroline @ Swaddles n' Bottles says:

      Hi Amanda! When I made it, it filled a normal sized cup plus a little more. So no, I didn’t drink the entire thing, but definitely close to most of it! Did you add some extra fruit that could have made it larger than usual?

  5. Kayla says:

    This works so good! I immediately noticed a difference in the amount of milk I was producing! I also added some raspberries and yogurt and it definitely helped with the taste! Thanks for sharing!

  6. Angela Cameron says:

    My milk supply was very poor and the baby wasn’t getting bottle. I tried fenugreek capsules, mother’s milk tea, and many other remedies but Healthy nursing tea did great help and now I am producing enough supply to satisfy my little one.

  7. KS says:

    I added a cup of mixed frozen berries instead of ice. I think it helps mask the flavors a little bit and it really helped my milk supply.

  8. Chenay Lucas says:

    I have made this smoothie 3 times and haven’t noticed a difference. My baby feeds fine, I just need to produce milk when I pump. I thought brewers yeast would work. Do I need the let their be milk too??

    • Caroline @ Swaddles n' Bottles says:

      Hi Chenay! Everyone reacts differently to different supplements. I am in my third trimester and preparing for breastfeeding baby #2. The two things I have already ordered to ensure I am stocked up on are the Let There Be Milk Drops and the Fenugreek capsules. Those got me the best results when nursing baby #1. Also, how often you pump too is important. Breastmilk is made on a supply/demand basis. So you may need a day or two of power pumping after each feeding to really send the signal to your body that there is more of a demand! It’s a tough few days because you are pumping SO much, but e results are worth it!

  9. Katie Herrera says:

    All of this definitely gave me the advice needed to increase my breast milk. I’ve seen a decrease in it and it’s bumming me out. I will try everything you suggested including this smoothie. Thank you. I’ll keep you updated!

  10. Megan says:

    Could you make this the night before and it still be good in the am? Trying to cut extra steps in my morning routine with returning to work.

    • Caroline @ Swaddles n' Bottles says:

      I would think it would work… I can’t say that I ever did that! The texture might be a little different since the oats will have soaked overnight… let me know how it works if you try it!

  11. tspeigner says:

    Drinking my first one now. I didn’t blend it as much as i should have, but that’s on me. I know brewer’s yeast is AWFUL and i hate it, BUT i also know it works! I used the banana & a little chocolate syrup (based on a previous suggestion. It really helps with that bitter taste. Thanks for this recipe… Really tired of just a bowl of oatmeal! Tomorrow I’m going to make sure to blend it better! Definitely need to produce more so i can get my freezer stash bulked up (i have to go back to work on 1/4/18 & need to make sure little man has enough) and actually fill him up between pumping sessions without having to supplement like i am right now.
