Pumpkin spice is one of the best things about fall and winter. I personally love the new Starbucks pumpkin cold brew drink because it is still warm here in Florida. I also have a baby coming in October, so I will be all over the pumpkin spice lactation recipes!
Realistically, you can make any recipe a lactation recipe by adding lactation-boosting ingredients. I just add a scoop of Milk Dust to various recipes. Milk Dust bakes well, adds a sweetness, so you can use less sugar or sweetener, and it ads protein! Win win.
Here are some more ingredients you can easily add to recipes, to make them lactation recipes:
- 1 scoop of Milk Dust lactation protein powder
- 1/4-1/2 cup of oatmeal
- 1-2 Tbsp flax seeds
- 1/4 cup mashed and cooked sweet potato
- 1 tsp brewer’s yeast
- 1-2 Tbsp pumpkin seeds (great for sprinkling on muffins or in breads!)
- 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
Most of these ingredients are easy to add to any recipe, without altering the taste and texture too much. I personally love a muffin for a lactation boost, or a super gooey brownie. Most of the time, when I am breastfeeding a newborn (which I will be breastfeeding my 4th soon!), I like something I can eat one-handed, that curbs those sugar cravings.
I also have Milk Dust Bars now, which are my absolute FAVORITE, on-the-go breastfeeding snack. Seriously, so good, sweet and FULL of nutrients for breastfeeding mamas. They aren’t pumpkin spice, but something you can have all year, that will also help you reach your fitness goals because they are low in sugar and high in protein. WINNING!

If you need help losing the baby weight and keeping up your milk supply, I have a very popular program, The Postpartum Cure, which provides you with your diet and nutrition plan to lose weight, not milk supply!
