Milk n Cookies Lactation Smoothie

Milk n Cookies Lactation Smoothie recipe – decadent and delicious smoothie for breastfeeding moms!

We LOVE lactation smoothie recipes. Whether you’re after a quick and healthy breakfast, lunch or a snack, it’s so easy to simply whip up a smoothie and pack it full of fruit, vegetables, nuts, oats and other healthy stuff.

Smoothies are also very adaptable. Swap ingredients as much as you like and you’ll almost always still end up with a delicious smoothie. This is great if you’ve run out of berries, but you still have banana. You can also change up the ingredients to suit the texture you’re craving. Want dreamy and creamy? Add avocado, or even cream cheese! Want a tropical slushy? Add extra ice and hold the dairy.

It’s so easy to make smoothies to your dietary needs too – if you are:

  • vegan
  • nut-free
  • dairy-free
  • keto
  • paleo
  • low carb
  • protein-full!
  • sugar-free

You can even boost your smoothie with things like hidden vegetables, protein powder or collagen powder or other supplements. So your smoothie is even better for you!

This smoothie is NOT the healthiest of them all. It’s more of a “sometimes” smoothie – but it is incredibly tasty and delicious and makes a decadent treat.

What’s in my favorite milk n cookies lactation smoothie:

Banana – great for sweetening your smoothie naturally, bananas also help make it super creamy (especially if you take the time to freeze the banana overnight). Bananas contain lots of healthy vitamins and minerals too, like potassium.

Flax Meal – full of essential fatty acids and phytoestrogens, it’s thought that flax seeds can help increase your milk supply. You won’t taste them in a smoothie, but they’ll help make it thick and creamy.

Rolled Oats – another famous food to increase your milk supply. In a smoothie, oats add creaminess and help to keep you full. 

Brewer’s Yeast (Debittered) – optional! A well known galactagogue (foods that increase milk supply) you can add Brewer’s Yeast into this smoothie once your baby has arrived. The best kind to get is this one, which has been ‘debittered’ as it has a bit of an aftertaste.

These ingredients (plus a few more) when mixed together make a decadent, sweet, milk n cookies smoothie that’s just delicious!

Do Lactation Smoothies Work?

There are some moms who lactation smoothies won’t work for – if you’ve got a medical reason for low supply no amount of smoothies, cookies or teas will change that. If you think you’re in this category, please seek medical attention to make sure your baby is getting enough milk. 

There are still lots of benefits to drinking lactation smoothies (beyond increasing milk supply):

  • it’s an easy way to get your nutrients in at one of the most busiest times of your life!
  • you can whip up a big smoothie in advance and keep it in the fridge to drink all day long.
  • you can prepare smoothie freezer bags so it’s super easy and you don’t have to worry if anyone did the groceries yesterday.
  • you can put just about anything in them – got leftover ricotta or cottage cheese? In it goes! Leftover cucumber? Try your smoothie green. Got a little bit of cream left? Get fancy and put it on top!

When To Start Drinking Lactation Smoothies

You can start drinking lactation smoothies right now! 

You might prefer to skip the Brewer’s Yeast because of the after taste (and you don’t really need it to boost lactation if you’re still pregnant or not breastfeeding). But, most lactation smoothies are simply very healthy and packed to the brim with nutritious ingredients.

You might even find that in the face of first trimester nausea , drinking a healthy smoothie is something you can manage and keep down. And when baby starts getting bigger in the third trimester (move over stomach!) you might find it easier to drink vitamin-packed smoothies than to eat a full meal. 

Start now!
