You’ve asked and begged. You’ve even pleaded. It’s finally here.
It’s one of the hardest things I’ve done. Yet, it’s also one of, if not the, most rewarding thing I’ve ever done. You’re nourishing an actual human being and that’s no small feat. Whether you breastfeed for 5 days or 5 years, you helped to give that little one the best gift ever. Part of making sure you are nourishing another human being is making sure that you are nourishing yourself as well.
I know we’re all busy, especially once another little person enters into the world. Furthermore, if this isn’t your first littler person, you’re even busier. Sometimes we literally just forget to eat. But I’m going to have you make me a promise today. You will eat breakfast every morning. Deal? Deal! Good. HA!
Now that we’ve made that commitment, let’s get to out strawberry coconut cashew lactation smoothie.
As with any of our lactation recipes, I’m going to put that disclaimer that you really need to get to the underlying issue if you think you have low supply. It’s very unlikely that you have a low supply or you aren’t producing enough to nourish your child adequately. However, there are a small percent of people who do. What we like to promote with our lactation recipes is that these recipes are providing you with the calories, protein, and healthy fats that you need to maintain a healthy supply.
This lactation smoothie is delish. If you’ve never had the strawberry, coconut, and cashew flavor combination, you are totally missing out!
Without further ado, here’s the recipe you’ve been waiting for since forever!
- 1 frozen Banana
- 7 frozen Strawberries
- 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1/2 cup vanilla Greek yogurt
