Minty Green Lactation Smoothie Recipe Ingredients
- 13-15 cashews
- 1 scoop of protein powder (this is the only protein powder that’s great for breastfeeding moms!)
- Half Avacado
- 1 cup Almond Milk (or milk of choice)
- 2 Cups Spinach
- 1 tbsp Flaxseed
- 4 Packets Stevia (or sweetener of choice)
- 1-2 Mint Leaves (depending on how minty you want it)
- A handful of ice cubes
I combine all of the ingredients and use my Ninja big blender – the lactation smoothie is so creamy and it blends really well.
Depending on your blender, you may need to pulse it a few times to really get the spinach to blend in.
The protein powder really helps with the flavor, so add extra if you aren’t a fan of spinach.
That’s what I love about lactation smoothies and shakes – you can adjust the ingredients according to consistency and taste.
All of the ingredients used are seriously breastfeeding superpowers for your milk supply and production.
