This mango mama protein shake is so yummy and full of milk-boosting ingredients! I LOVE this protein shake because it is super creamy. My favorite protein powder for breastfeeding mamas is a big part of why it tastes so good, is so creamy, and has so much milk-boosting ingredients.
This protein powder comes with 21 grams for protein per serving, at only 120 calories. This makes it amazing for weight loss, while still supporting a healthy milk supply. It also is packed with super foods, Tumeric and Digestive enzymes! I wrote a post all about it, or you can watch the video below 🙂 It is absolutely clear of fillers, chemicals or artificial sweeteners and Organic. It is also created by a wonderful company in California. Read this post if you want some more details on how to lose weight with protein shakes. They are my favorite secret weapon to losing my baby weight three times now!
Here are the ingredients:
2 Scoops of my all-time favorite protein powder
1 Fresh Mango cut up
1/2 – 2/3 cup Frozen mango, pineapple and peach blend. I bought mine at the store, you can substitute for all pineapple, mango or peaches, as long as they are frozen. /
1 tsp flaxseed (helps with milk supply and adds good fats to your milk!!)
1/8 cup of oatmeal (read this post on why it boosts milk)
1/2 cup of almond milk (add more 1 Tbsp at a time if your blender needs it)
Blend everything together in your Ninja single serve blender (YOU NEED THIS! So simple and easy to blend and drink!)
And there you have my Mango Mama Lactation Protein Shake. Make sure to check out some more recipes and smoothies to help you keep up your supply and let go of the baby weight. If you want more details on the protein powder, see this video. Also, make sure to look into my unique and specialized postpartum program, The Postpartum Cure. I go over everything healing for postpartum mamas. I help you heal your pelvic floor and core, walk you through specialized nutrition and get you back to your fitness again.
I will be launching a very specialized program for postpartum mamas looking to heal, nourish and regain their strength.I really struggled healing after my first child, and even went through pelvic floor physical therapy for weeks to manage scar tissue that developed from tearing. I have experience studying nutrition, physical therapy and I taught Pilates, so I’ve put together a program I wish I would’ve followed from the beginning.
A program that first heals your body through specialized movements and nourishing foods. Foods are so essential to your body finding the nutrients it needs to put itself back together again. Your postpartum body needs special care in the first 4-6 weeks where you focus on regaining strength and properly fueling your body for breastfeeding.
This program then moves you into gaining physical fitness back. I will never forget the first time I tried to go for a run around 12 weeks postpartum after my first baby. I didn’t do any strength work, so I was literally jelly. I had lost all my extra fat and my previous muscle. So depressing. I was barely able to start gaining it back before I got pregnant and sick again with my second. I’ve learned so much on maintaining muscle postpartum through a unique diet and Pilates routines. I walk you through all of this too!
Lastly, I take you into a fitness and nutrition program to get your body back. This amps up your fitness routine into HIIT workouts, strength workouts and cardio to help you melt off those last pounds. I also walk you through proper food intake to encourage a healthy milk supply, while still burning extra fat as fuel. There is a very fine line to do this, but don’t worry, I’ve done it three times!!
I’m working on my edits to launch this program as soon as possible. I want it to be affordable, so all moms can heal there bodies and skip all the trouble I experienced. I didn’t realize, even with all my knowledge and training, how non-negotiable healing your postpartum body is before working on losing the weight.
Please sign up, so I can let you know as soon as the The Postpartum Cure is launched and ready!
