Best lactation smoothie ever!

Updated on July 2, 2014
3.5 stars from 90 ratings of Chocolate Lactation Smoothie

This smoothie is packed with good foods and nutrients to help boost milk supply. It is the equivalent to about 1/2 dozen lactation cookies without all the extra calories! I use this smoothie as my daily breakfast. It is filling and delicious!


Cook Time

Prep time: 5 min
Ready in: 5 min
Yields: 1 large smoothie

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Chocolate Almond Milk
  • 2 TBS Ground flax seed meal
  • 2 TBS Peanut butter or Almond Butter
  • 1 medium Banana
  • 1/3 cup Old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 TBS Brewers Yeast
  • Ice
  1. Put all ingredients (except ice) into blender and and allow to blend for about 2 minutes. It takes a couple minutes to get the oats to break down to a drinkable consistency.
  2. Once well blended add ice cube and blend to desired thickness. I usually use about 4 goof sized ice cubes.

Notes:

* I like to freeze the banana in small chunks. It helps to thicken the smoothie without having to add too much ice so it doesn't get watered down

* There is no substitution for Brewer's Yeast. In general it can be found at your local natural food stores such as Whole Foods, GNC or Vitamin Shoppes. If you can't find it locally then try Amazon.

* The recipe calls for the chocolate almond milk but you can substitute any almond milk or coconut milk

      I'm looking forward to trying this in the morning, since im out of lactation cookies. I'll be trying nutritional yeast instead of brewer's yeast, which didn't seem to have any negative effect on the last batch of cookies I made. :)
