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??
1 T Peanut Butter
¼ cup Oats
1-1.5 Tsp. Brewer’s Yeast
8 oz. Milk of choice
Ice as needed
I recently made these delicious little snacks for my sister who is waiting to deliver her sweet baby any day now. I am adding them to the New Mama Care Package that I am making for her to come home to.
The oats, brewers yeast, high quality protein and omegas are all the perfect combination to help promote lactation in a new mama. Not to mention the easy healthy snack that it will provide her when her hands are full and she is forgetting to eat!!
1 1/2 cups Peanut Butter
1/2 cup Honey
2 Tbs. Flax Seed
2 Tbs. Chia Seed
4 Tbs. Brewer’s Yeast
1 cup oats
Your favorite chocolate chunks
Mix together in a medium bowl or food processor (use the dough blade). Roll into balls or use a small ice cream scooper. Place in fridge. Yields 26 protein balls.
These also freeze beautifully!!
I hope you enjoy making this recipe for a sweet new mama in your life. Did you make lactation cookies for your milk supply?
