How are you and your littles doing? Let’s chat some more about breastfeeding specifically a lactation smoothie to help increase your supply. I’m seriously thinking about weening my son. He will be 6 months soon and I really want to make it to 1 year but I am exhausted and the constant battle with my supply not to mention him fighting the bottle is not making this breastfeeding experience fun. He is growing beautifully and he loves his veggies and some fruits so we will see what happens over the next few months.
While I figure out what the best thing is for both of us, I want to share my go to lactation smoothie recipe. It’s easy to put together and I even do an overnight oats version which I will be sharing soon. Remember my list of 9 Things That Help Boost Your Milk Supply Quickly? This smoothie incorporates a few of those things including oatmeal and brewer’s yeast. You can drink this smoothie all at once or split having half with breakfast (with not as your breakfast) and the other half as an afternoon snack.
Oatmeal & Banana Lactation Smoothie
You can find Brewer’s Yeast on Amazon or at your local health food store.
- 1 1/4 cup almond milk
- 1 banana
- 1/4 cup oatmeal
- 1 tbsp peanut butter
- 1 tbsp flax meal
- 1 tbsp brewer's yeast
- 1 1/2 tbsp honey (or preferred sweetener to taste)
- Dash of cinnamon
- Dash of nutmeg
- 2 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
- Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend to desired consistency.
- Garnish with cinnamon and nutmeg.
- Freeze the banana, add crushed ice or refrigerate smoothie for 15 minutes if you want it colder.
One of my other favorite milk boosting snacks are these Blueberry Oatmeal Lactation Muffins
