This protein shake is so yummy, and full of super powers for milk supply!! I love this as a postpartum drink to give my body all the nutrients it needs to produce lots of milk, as well as help me lose the baby weight fast. (I lost it all by 6 weeks postpartum!). The run down of the shake is pretty simple, and I’ve laid out all the ingredients for you, to make sure you can whip it up quickly.
Let’s go over the ingredients first:
1 scoop of protein powder (read all about my favorite protein powder, and the one I HIGHLY recommend)
1 cup Almond Milk (or milk of choice)
2 Cups Spinach
1 TBS Flaxseed
4 Packets Stevia (or sweetener of choice)
1-2 Mint Leaves (depending on how minty you want it)
Handful or so of ice cubes
I use a Ninja big blender set that we grabbed at Costco, but this one is smaller and much more affordable off Amazon! so all of this blends super creamy for me. Depending on your blender, you may need to pulse it a few times to really get the spinach to blend in. The protein powder is what will help the flavor, so add extra if you aren’t a fan of spinach. That’s the great thing about shakes, you can adjust the ingredients according to consistency and taste. All of these ingredients are seriously superpowers for your milk production.

My boys will even drink some too, and they are super picky!
Breastfeeding and postpartum recovery is such a special time. If you are having trouble with breastfeeding, I have 13 tips that might help you. I breastfed three babies now, and with each baby I’ve learned more and more.
I have 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.
Here is what one mama emailed me on the program:
“I absolutely love the program! Just got finished with workout 4 and I’m dying I can only do these 2x thru and my second round is pretty funny to see I’m sure! I will work up to 3x:-) By the way, your little boy angel in the videos is too precious and makes me smile! My boys have been doing these with me as well🏼!
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 workout program to combine with a meal plan to help you lose the baby weight, not your milk!! !
I created this program to be affordable and realistic for new mams!
