Lactation Protein Smoothie Packs

image

I have been working on perfecting a lactation smoothie that actually tastes good. My sister is having a baby in a couple of  weeks and I am making her a New Mama Care Package for her to come home to after the birth.

I thought pre packaged smoothie packs would be a great addition since it is so easy to pop them in a blender, add milk, and blend for a healthy meal when you don’t have time to cook (or enough hands).

So after blending and tasting for a couple of weeks, I think I have it down. The oats, brewer’s yeast, and pure protein and omegas are a perfect combination to help promote lactation in a new mama!!

Have you ever had a lactation smoothie??

Ingredients:

2 scoops Vanilla or Chocolate Shaklee Life Shake
1 T Peanut Butter
¼ cup Oats
½ Banana
1-1.5 Tsp. Brewer’s Yeast
8 oz. Milk of choice
Ice as needed

  2. Is this recipe for one bag or multiple bags? Also, to freeze them, you would add the milk, ice and peanut butter right before blending, right?

    • Hi Brandy!! It’s actually per bag and I freeze the peanut butter in the bag too!! I add the ice and milk to the blender at the time I’m making the smoothie. Some people make milk ice cubes and throw those in the bag too.

      • Oh how exciting!! Congrats to you mama!! My sister used these and the protein balls for a few months and it really helped her milk supply (it took her a while to get her supply right). I plan on using them after my next baby since I didn’t have Shaklee with my first 2. Good protein and nutrition is where it’s at 😉

    • Hi Liz!! Congrats on the baby!!
      It doesn’t matter the kind of oats (unless you need gluten free). I have now made it with rolled oats and with steel cut oats and it is delish with both!! Good luck to you in the coming months 💕

    • I’m sure you can!! I just don’t know what amount would be suitable so you may have to try it out a few times. I am only knowledgeable in the servings with this brand. I also like that I can get probiotics in as well.
