Lactation Smoothie Recipe to Boost Milk Supply
If you’re looking for the perfect lactation smoothie to boost your milk supply, look no further than this recipe! This is the simplest recipe to make when you are breastfeeding and in need of a quick snack or meal. Breastfeeding protein powder can also be a great addition to your diet to boost vitamins and lactogenic foods.
It contains healthy fats for both you and your baby, and milk-boosting foods like oats and almonds. Almonds contain a high amount of magnesium and calcium- both of which you need in pregnancy and postpartum to help your body recover and replace maternal stores used to produce breastmilk.
This recipe takes 5 minutes to make, including gathering the ingredients and blending them up! And, best of all, there are only four ingredients!
Peanut Butter Banana Oat Smoothie
Lactation Smoothie Ingredients
1/4 cup Oats (traditional for more milk-boosting power)
2 tbsps All Natural Peanut Butter
1/2 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
Lactation Smoothie Directions
Place all ingredients into a blender and blend well until smooth. Divide into glasses and enjoy! (Note: This smoothie will thicken if not had right away. Just add a splash of almond milk until you reach your desired consistency.)
Storage –> Store in a mason jar with a lid in the fridge up to 48 hours.
Recipe Enhancement Tips
More Protein –> Add hemp seeds or a scoop of protein powder.
More Fiber/milk boosting properties –>Add ground flaxseed.
Recipe Substitution Tips
No Banana –> Sweeten with raw honey, maple syrup, or a few soaked dates.
No Peanut Butter –> Use any nut or seed butter.
Just keep in mind that no smoothie recipe will replace getting true lactation support if you need it. For more breastfeeding and healthy recipes, check out my program L.E.A.N. Mamas.
