Green Lactation Smoothie

This simple and healthy green lactation smoothie is one of my favorite lactation recipes. It is quick and easy to make, tastes super healthy, and helps boost your milk supply. This smoothie is great for breakfast, or any time of day. When I’m really pressed for time I add in some protein powder and have it as a meal.

The ingredients for this smoothie are straightforward and all it only takes a couple of minutes to make with your blender/ food processor of choice.

Green Lactation Smoothie Ingredients:

2 Cups Spinach or Kale
1 Banana (ripe is good so it is sweeter!)
1-2 Cups Milk of Choice
1 tsp Brewer’s Yeast*
1 tbsp Ground Flaxseed or Wheat Germ
Optional – 1 tbsp Honey or Sweetener of Choice

Method:

1) Combine greens, banana, and milk (and sweetener if using) and blend together
2) Add the brewer’s yeast and flaxseed or wheat germ and blend once more
3) Enjoy!

*A note on the brewer’s yeast – this is considered one of the most effective lactation-boosting ingredients (it worked for me!) but the taste isn’t great. I find that the green smoothie in particular masks the yeast flavor pretty well, but if you detect a hint of, oh I don’t know… beer, in the smoothie, don’t be alarmed. You can omit this ingredient and still support lactation with the high nutrient content of the greens, the calcium in the milk, and the ground flaxseed or wheat germ.
