Miraculous Lactation Smoothie


When you’re a breastfeeding mom, your supply can become a bit of an obsession. So many things can impact it, and when your baby is 100% dependent on that liquid gold for nourishment, it can definitely send you into a panic when your supply takes a hit. I got sick with the flu a month ago, and my supply dwindled to scary levels. Thankfully I had a nice supply of frozen milk to get us through the rough patch, but it was still harrowing.

To get my supply back up, and to keep it flowing, I take Motherlove More Milk Blend, Shatavari, and Malunggay, and I drink this smoothie at least 4 times a week.  You guys, this stuff is no joke. After a week of taking the supplements 3 times a day and drinking this smoothie, I was pumping 5 oz. per breast, which is crazy for having a 3 month old. I actually cut back the supplements to even things out, but still drink the smoothie regularly.

This puppy is loaded with galactogogues like brewer’s yeast and oats, superfoods like chia, healthy fats like coconut oil and almond butter, and protein, which, on top of the antioxidant fruit and folate and iron-rich greens, makes it the perfect food for a mama!

    Does the hemp protein powder have any benefits towards increasing lactation? If not I’d like to replace it with the pea protein I use now. I want the maximum milk boost though!
