What Makes this Pumpkin Smoothie Good for Breastfeeding?

Just because a smoothie has the word lactation in it doesn’t mean it’s necessarily going to increase your milk supply.

Of course being hydrated in general is the BEST thing you can do to help you produce more milk.

In addition to that, there are certain powerful ingredients known as galactagogues you can add into your diet that may give your milk production a kick start. 

Have a look at the specific lactogenic ingredients I chose for this pumpkin lactation smoothie recipe.

  • Oats
  • Flax Oil
  • Almond Milk
  • Bone Broth Protein Powder


Why Are these Ingredients Going to Increase My Milk Supply?

That’s a good question!

Let me help answer it by addressing each ingredient used in this delicious pumpkin lactation smoothie and break down why each one works to increase milk supply.

  • Oats are a known and powerful breast milk boosting food due to the high iron content.
  • Pumpkin is also high in iron, which makes them great for a breastfeeding diet too!
  • Flax is another ingredient I always try to incorporate into my lactation smoothie recipes.

However, you should know that there is some debate on whether or not flax is good for a breastfeeding mother to consume, but for me, it has a huge milk boosting benefits!

  • Almond milk is another lactation aid I added in to this recipe because It’s delicious and full of nutritional value for a breastfeeding mom, try and have some everyday!
  • There’s also a scoop of bone broth vanilla protein powder in this smoothie, which contains nutrients and minerals that strengthen a mother’s body and keep her hydrated.

1/4 c oats
