Lactation Iced Coffee Recipe (Made with Milk Dust Protein Powder)
One of the largest issues breastfeeding women face is keeping up their milk supply. This was something I struggled with both of my daughters. As time went on, I found quite a few methods to keep my supply up.
First of all, drinking water is SO important for a healthy milk supply. I aim to drink at least 80 ounces per day.
Secondly, I try to eat foods that contain ingredients that boost milk supply. These include fenugreek, Brewer’s yeast and fennel.
These ingredients are not typically found in everyday foods, however they are easy to add into a variety of recipes. I’ve made location muffins, lactation oatmeal, and even a lactation green goddess smoothie.
And today I’m sharing my recipe for lactation iced coffee!
To make this recipe, I add about 12 ounces of iced coffee (just coffee and milk of choice, no ice yet!) to a shaker bottle.
Remember, about 300 mg of caffeine is safe while breastfeeding. Ensure you are not consuming more than that when making this recipe. As someone who just enjoys drinking coffee throughout the day, I brew half-caff to keep my caffeine below 300 mg.
Next, add 1 scoop of Milk Dust Protein Powder to your shaker cup and blend well. I used the Milk Dust Vanilla flavor, however, they also have fudge brownie flavor as well. You can shop their flavors here.
Milk Dust Protein Powder is packed with nutrients to support healthy lactation. In just 1 scoop of powder, there is red raspberry leaf, Brewer’s yeast, fenugreek, and fennel seeds.
Once well blended, pour over ice and enjoy!
