Best Lactation Smoothie Recipe
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!
- 1 banana, sliced
- 1/2 cup oats
- 2 tbsp flax seed
- 1-2 tbsp Brewer’s Yeast
- 1 1/2 cup soy or almond milk
- 1-2 cups of ice
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.
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.
