As a little girl, I always dreamed of being a dairy cow. Well, not really. But as a mama that is exclusively breastfeeding, I know the importance of keeping my milk supply up. Therefore, I wanted to throw together a lactation smoothie recipe that contained the holy trifecta (ingredients said to boost milk production):
- Old-fashioned Oats
- Debittered Brewers Yeast (I use this one)
- Ground Flaxseed
Each morning, I steep myself a cup of Mother’s Milk Tea to go with my breakfast. I then drink this peanut butter banana lactation smoothie as my midmorning snack. I’ve noticed that this smoothie keeps me satiated until lunch and has increased my milk supply.
I use water in this recipe, but feel free to switch it out for any milk of your choice (i.e. coconut milk, almond milk, cow’s milk). Also, if you’re not into peanut butter, it can easily be switched out for almond butter or cashew butter.
