I have been a victim of low supply since the beginning of my breastfeeding journey. This quick and healthy smoothie recipe has been a savior to my breast milk supply on numerous ocassions. I made this every day during my first few weeks home from the hospital and whenever I had a few extra minutes in the morning. It’s delicious and filling so it also works as a breakfast smoothie. I’m telling you, you are going to want to make this even if you aren’t lactating or don’t breastfeed.
Boobie Smoothie Ingredients:
1 cup milk
1 frozen banana
1/2 cup of oats
2 tbs ground flax seed
2 tbs peanut butter
1 tbs chocolate milk mix
OPTIONAL BREAST MILK SUPPLY BOOSTER: 3 Brewer’s yeast tabs
Blend all of these items together until smooth. You may need to add a few ice cubes and some extra milk to get the right consistency.
The key ingredients that will increase your breast milk supply are the oats, flax seed and peanut butter. Brewer’s yeast tabs also help with breast milk production, but they have their own unique flavor. If you don’t want to add these to your smoothie and risk changing the taste, you can always take these orally like you would fenugreek capsules or prenatal vitamins. Feel free to play around with the amounts of each ingredient as well. The measurements I’ve provided will give you one regular size smoothie and should boost your supply within 12 – 24 hours. Results are dependent on the person, but if you stay relaxed, increase your pumping sessions ( for my EPing mamas) and eat the right foods, your body should react accordingly.
