Oatmeal is a great way to increase your milk supply, although if you are a breastfeeding mom who does not necessarily like the flavor of oatmeal, this lactation smoothie is a wonderful way to get in those milk boosting oats. It also contains a few other galactagogues to increase your supply. And on the plus side it tastes delicious and is the perfect breakfast smoothie or mid-day snack!
I have been exploring several ways to boost my milk supply as I am trying to create a freezer stash as I am heading back to my summer job a few days a week and this smoothie was one that took my pumping sessions from 3-4 ounces to 6-8 ounces! It contains oats, brewers yeast, and flax seed, which are all ingredients to supplement breastfeeding moms! No wonder my milk supply doubled!
Note: I buy my oats in store, although I order my flax seed and brewers yeast off of Amazon.
I am including a couple other items that I absolutely love, that helped double my milk supply, and I recommend to all breastfeeding moms.
This lactation cookie mix, is the bees knees! It doubled my milk supply and is freaking delicious. Moms beware, you will want to eat all of these cookies in one sitting, they are that good!
This fenugreek and blessed thistle powder drink mix also helped wonders when trying to increase my milk supply. Not only does it work great, but it also tastes great! I love this mix as there are so many ways to use it. Add it to milk, almond milk, your morning coffee, a smoothie, or whatever you prefer.
