I am just a mama with lots of health and fitness knowledge and experience.
I’ve made a list of yummy sweet treats that will increase your milk supply and support you in the journey of breastfeeding. Whether you just had your baby, or you’re an old pro like me, it’s essential to take care of your body and give your milk-makers what they need. Breastfeeding can be hard. It can be annoying, inconvenient, and sometimes the amount of milk you have is less than you need. Here are some fabulous treats that will help you boost your milk supply that are healthy, satisfying and sweet!
The first treat I want to tell you about is my Milk Dust! It is a sweet, yummy protein powder with lactation-boosting ingredients!! It is clean, safe and full of nutrients to help you keep your milk supply up, and lose weight by curbing sugar cravings! I can’t wait for it to be available late this Spring, and the shakes you can make for snacks or meals are so good! It is dairy-free, soy-free, gluten-free, non GMO and plant-based protein with some awesome nutrients. I specifically chose many of the nutrients and ingredients because of how important they are to both mama and baby. This is KEY in postpartum recovery, milk supply and weight loss. I have a full program that goes over your healing, breastfeeding diet for weight loss and milk supply, as well as my certification in nutrition from Precision Nutrition. I am also a Pre/Post Natal Fitness Specialist, and I am so passionate about helping mamas heal after baby through nourishing their bodies. I HIGHLY recommend you hop on the VIP email list, so you can get a discount as soon as Milk Dust is available!
Frozen Chocolate Banana with Sprinkles:
This is perfect for summer. You can follow this guide to make your frozen, chocolate-covered bananas, or grab these on Amazon. I don’t have time to make a whole lot of things, or clean up after making what I want, so its much easier for me to buy my treats. You can also put crushed nuts on your bananas, rather than sprinkles. Those are a bit healthier for you while nursing because nuts (if you aren’t allergic) are a great, nutrient-dense food. I mention trail mix in this post, where I give you the 4 best foods to add to your breastfeeding diet. Nuts are great for you! I don’t make these often because you can buy them so easily, but when I do, I like to put sprinkles on them (and everything else).
Dark Chocolate Covered Strawberries:
Sometimes all you need is something small and sweet. Well, get yourself some dark chocolate, melt it and cover your strawberries! Strawberries are super good for breastfeeding because they offer a large punch of antioxidants, as well as fiber and vitamins. I found a simple recipe here but the process is super simple. Just melt the chocolate with a little butter or coconut oil, dip and put in the fridge!
These are my favorite treats that help your milk supply because they are healthy, offer lots of vitamins and they satisfy your sweet tooth. Having a lot of sugar cravings? Make sure you read, The Real Reasons You’re Craving Sugar While Breastfeeding and What To Do About It
