Keeping up milk supply, as well as working on flattening the post-baby pooch is such a big challenge!! I talk a lot about both these postpartum issues on the blog, and today I have tiny tricks that are super simple, yet can help you lose the baby weight, as well as two recipes for lactation smoothies!

If you are struggling to lose the baby weight, I have a  little program, where I go over how to lose the baby weight, specifically for breastfeeding mamas. I have meal plans, healing foods, milk-boosting supplements, recipes, shopping lists and a private Facebook group for support. I walk you through healing your core,  strengthening your pelvic floor, Pilates and cardio workouts and so much more.  If you are looking for a more in-depth plan that goes over healing postpartum, properly nourishing your body for milk supply, a meal plan and recipes and workouts to lose the baby weight, please check out my new program, The Postpartum Cure. So many mamas are having tons of success with just the little bit of help and knowledge! I highly encourage you to check it out now, because I add more content monthly and increase the price as more information, videos and details are added!

Let’s get into the 5 tricks:

Take Out Dairy:

This is a super simple step, though you may miss your cheese, but if dairy is causing any inflammation in your body, and you may not be aware of it, you may be holding onto weight. Also, dairy foods are for baby cows to grow big. Dairy spikes blood sugar more for some people than others. Try taking it out and swapping with nut-milk products like Silk  Almond Dairy – Free Yogurt Alternative and Silk Unsweetened Vanilla Almondmilk!

Scroll down for the smoothie recipes using both the Silk  Almond Dairy – Free Yogurt Alternative and Silk Unsweetened Vanilla Almondmilk!

I also have a new protein powder I created specifically for breastfeeding mamas that is plant-based, free of dairy, soy, corn and gluten! It is lactation-boosting as well as helping with weight loss! This blends really well with a few tablespoons of dairy-free yogurt and fresh berries! Follow the Milk Dust Instagram for more recipe ideas!

Walk 20 Minutes More:

Walking is so good for you, especially postpartum because it is low impact, and it keeps your body moving. Adding 10 minutes of walking in the morning, and 10 minutes in the evening can do wonders for your energy level, and it will burn a few more calories.

Eat an Apple Before Dinner:

Apples have a lot of water and fiber, so they will fill your stomach up before your meal. This will help you eat less in the evening because you will feel more full! If you don’t like apples, try oranges, watermelon or cucumbers to get a similar affect.

Jump Around:

This may sound weird, but add 5 minutes of jumping three times in your day. This is great cardio, and it will add up to 15 minutes of great calorie burning for the day. Do squat jumps, or touch the floor and jump super high. If you have little ones, get them involved. It will get your heart pumping!

Get Outside:

Cravings often come when we are in a funky mood, tired, or been sitting for a long time. Getting fresh air, a little vitamin D can help knock those out. Especially in the afternoon before dinner. If the weather isn’t good, dress the best you can and get out for a few minutes at a time. Mother nature does wonders for your mind!

Here are two lactation smoothie recipes you can use to help you lose the baby weight faster!

One is Strawberry Peach and the other is Strawberries and Cream. So yummy, and perfect in time for summer.

I created these recipes a year ago, before I had Milk Dust created, but I HIGHLY recommend adding a scoop of Milk Dust to each one, so help fight sugar cravings, nourish your body and improve lactation! Use CODE: LACTATION for 10% off!

Silk Unsweetened Vanilla Almondmilk is literally in my fridge at all times. I use it for so much!! I was super excited when I went to Walmart, and they had the Silk Vanilla Almond Dairy – Free Yogurt Alternative and Silk Peach Almond Dairy – Free Yogurt Alternative because they are so perfect for these recipes!!

Let’s get into the recipes for these lactation smoothies that are super healthy. Being healthy doesn’t have to be hard at all, especially with wonderful products like the Silk Almondmilk line!

Strawberries and Cream:

This will actually be the top layer of the next smoothie. Here are the super simple ingredients:

1/2 cup frozen strawberries
1/2 carton Silk Strawberry Almond Dairy – Free Yogurt Alternative
1/2 carton Silk Vanilla Almond Dairy – Free Yogurt Alternative

1 cup Silk Unsweetened Vanilla Almondmilk
1 scoop Milk Dust protein powder
1 tsp flaxseeds
1 Tbsp oats

Blend at high speed, pour in a cup to drink, with some dairy-free whipped cream and strawberries on top!! If you want to use it for the layered smoothie, put in freezer for about 10 minutes, and move to the next recipe!

Peaches and Cream:

Here are the ingredients and instructions for the peaches and cream layer:

1 cup frozen peaches
1/2 carton Silk Peach Almond Dairy – Free Yogurt Alternative
1/2 carton Silk Vanilla Almond Dairy – Free Yogurt Alternative

1 cup Silk Unsweetened Vanilla Almondmilk
1 scoop Milk Dust protein powder

1 tsp flaxseeds
1 Tbsp oats

Blend in a good blender, and pour into your cup. This can be the bottom layer, so put in the freezer for about 15-20 minutes. Just enough to create a solid top. When you put this layer in the freezer, pull out the strawberry layer. Pour on top when the peach layer has a stable top.

When you add the two layers together, you have a Strawberries, Peaches and Cream lactation smoothie that is completely dairy-free, yet super creamy and yummy! The added oats and flaxseed help with milk production, AND the probiotics in the yogurt help keep your gut healthy and happy, which also means a flatter tummy!

    Workout (you can do that in your house too). Eat healthy, in time (intervals) and right amount of food (you must create healthy caloric deficit). Drink Mummy magic weight loss tea 3xday. Stay motivated and be happy with your results.
