Protein Lactation Smoothie Recipe

I wanted to share this because when Weston started daycare last week, I started drinking these smoothies to increase my supply. And I feel like I produce more now. It’s also a great little energy booster!

1.5 cups almond milk

.5 cup coffee

1 scoop brewers yeast – found at The Vitamin Shoppe

1 scoop milled brown flax seeds – found at Aldi

1 scoop chia seeds – found at Aldi

.5 cup peanut butter (I feel like this helps mask the taste of the yeast. Add more if you like a thicker smoothie)

1 frozen banana

4 organic fresh strawberries

4 ice cubes

Blend until smooth

Optional additions: protein powder and Greek yogurt. I feel like the more ingredients you add, the less you can taste the yeast, which I’m not a huge fan of but it’s not the worst thing I’ve ever tasted!
