This lactation shake is good. Like so good. It is absolutely perfect for mamas looking to keep their milk supply up, while losing the baby weight. First, it is full of blueberries which are wonderful for milk supply. See my 5 best foods for increasing milk supply and losing the baby weight to know more about what blueberries do.
Anyways, the dark chocolate aspect really takes the standard blueberry smoothie to another level. Think of the chocolate covered blueberries you can get at Costco. Like that but healthy. It also secretly has a handful of spinach, for an extra milk-boost, and you will never know it is there. Lucky you 🙂
Part of the reason this is so good for your milk supply AND weight loss is because of the protein powder I use. It literally is full of milk boosting ingredients, and it is low in calories and high in protein. In my program, The Postpartum Cure, I talk a lot about nutrition for breastfeeding and healing. It is so important, and the key to losing the baby weight. If you need help, check out my program to see everything I go over. Read why this is the best protein powder for losing the baby weight to see if you think it is a good fit. It tastes amazing, and I’ve tried both vanilla and chocolate.
Let’s get to the ingredients:
1 cup of blueberries (frozen are great, I used fresh, and the texture is very thick, almost like pudding)
1 handful spinach
2 Tbsp of cocoa powder
1 tbs oatmeal
1 tsp flaxseed
2 Scoops Chocolate Ora Organic Protein Powder
1 cup of Almond Milk or milk of choice
Blend everything together, and feel free to add more milk as needed, depending on your blender and the texture you prefer.
If you need help losing the baby weight and keeping up your milk supply, I have a very popular program, The Postpartum Cure, which comes in an app you can download. This program has helped hundreds of women lose their baby weight, while also keeping up their milk supply. It can be done!
