Lactation smoohie, recipe, blog, breastfeeding blog, parenting blog, new muThese recipes aren't too different to standard smoothies but they contain ingredients that are said to help boost milk supply. According to Belly Belly, fenugreek, oats, brewer's yeast, and nuts can all increase lactation. Spinach and flax contain phytoestrogens which is thought to promote lactation, as well.  Having them in smoothie form can make them easier and tastier  to consume. Some of these recipes also have added energy boosting  ingredients like bananas which also give sleep deprived mamas a little boost!
