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.
So many mamas are having such success with the program, and let me share what they’ve said:
“I’m on the 14 day clean eating part and already feel a change. I love that your program caters to nursing moms. These recipes are boosting my milk supply! Thanks again and can’t wait to use the new app!”
“As far as counting calories, yes that was so helpful!… it was an eye opener…But your concept of reducing ever so slightly and monitoring milk supply was so helpful! I have lost 6lbs-yay!- and have 12 more to go! I am encouraged for sure because it is usually not until I’m done nursing that I’m able to lose weight. So I’m all in for hopefully the rest of my life-on clean eating like this and exercise! Thanks so much for your help!!”
“Feeling GREAT on this program!!! It’s unbelievable how eating clean makes such a difference. Let me rephrase that…it’s amazing the difference eating nutrient dense foods makes! My skin is glowing and I’m already shedding pounds! I also tried the first workout today and did well although I had to modify a bit and omit the backwards burpee (I had cesarean just over a month ago and don’t quite feel ready for that exercise just yet but I will get there). Loving this plan! Thank you SO MUCH for tour help!”
“The few changes I’ve made to diet per your instructions is already helping lower my sweet cravings. I’m sure I’ll notice an even bigger difference when I get stricter. This week has been great as I feel better, have already lost 2#, and haven’t seen a drop in milk supply which was my biggest concern. I look forward to starting the workouts tonight!”
“The baby steps have been super helpful including writing down everything I ate…Another 5 days would be amazing, I was thinking yesterday what am I going to do after the 5 days are finished. You have been incredibly helpful!! I am so appreciative!!!”
My program focuses on specialized nutrition for breastfeeding moms, recipes, meal plans, grocery lists, a new Ab Rehab + Pelvic Floor Restore program, and a new section on going back to work after baby coming soon!
The price is increasing once my certification as a Pre/Postnatal Exercise Specialist and the iOS app is out! Make sure to grab it now, while it is super affordable!
