Keeping both you and your baby healthy while breastfeeding requires a proper meal plan and some guidance. If you would like a step-by-step program to help you lose weight safely, check out all our courses, programs, challenges, & recipe book.
Lactation smoothies are one of the best tools for losing the baby’s weight while breastfeeding because you can blend up some awesome ingredients to boost your supply, while also helping you lose the baby’s weight. Green lactation shakes don’t always taste good because of the greens…but this one is super yummy.
The key to a green smoothie is a really good vanilla protein powder, and frozen, sweet fruit. Rather than ice, I like frozen pineapple the best because it makes the sweetest taste, and it also blends up smoothly. The protein powder (this one is super clean and safe for breastfeeding mamas), helps keep it creamy, gives you the protein you need, and offers a sweet vanilla taste.
Spinach is a big deal for breastfeeding mamas and their milk supply, and you can read more about that in this post. I love hiding spinach in smoothies because I don’t like it raw. It just doesn’t taste good. I LOVE it cooked, or blended here in a lactation smoothie.
