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.
Important Note: This smoothie is made with ingredients that you are most likely not used to. The taste can be harsh at first. This is not your average sweet smoothie. It has a purpose of increasing your milk supply and may not taste like you anticipate. Please feel free to add you own ingredients such as peanut butter, strawberries or cocoa to mask the taste of the strong taste of the Brewer’s yeast and flax seed.
