This lactation smoothie is amazing for both increasing milk supply as well as helping you lose that baby weight. YES, you can do both! Lactation smoothies are a key component of my program, The Postpartum Cure, and I highly recommend them because they are full of nutrients, which is the trick to keeping your milk supply while losing the baby weight.
Many mamas struggle to lose the baby weight while breastfeeding because they fear their milk supply will decrease with their weight. This doesn’t have to happen. Eating the appropriate nutrient-dense foods will help you maintain a healthy milk supply and lose the weight easily. Hundreds of mamas are losing the weight with my app and program, so if you like lactation smoothie recipes with clean and organic protein powder, you’ll love the program!
Let’s get to the recipe and ingredients!

I’m so excited one of my favorite breastfeeding protein powders, Ora Organics came out with single packets, so you can try it, or take it on the go. I highly recommend this powder because of the amazing nutrients in addition to the protein, and there is also Majka lactation protein powder, which is awesome for milk supply too. I have a post on a few different kinds of protein powders that are safe for breastfeeding that many mamas find super helpful too.
