Lactation Smoothie Meets Power Breakfast
THIS is what I make every morning. I love it for a few reasons:
1| It’s delicious. Don’t let the color fool you.
2| It’s packed with perfectly balance nutrition, with good macro-nutrient ratios, for a healthy breakfast with staying power and lactation support.
3| It’s transportable and can be consumed at any pace while juggling two rugrats and racing out the door for am workouts, work and/or life in general.
Here’s how you make it:
3 scoops DrinkOrgain chocolate protein powder
1 cup unsweetened LoveMySilk cashew milk (almond milk is good too)
1 tbsp Solgar brewers yeast
1 tbsp organic flaxseed meal (keep it in the fridge!)
1/3 c Quaker oats
1/4-1/2 c nonfat Greek yogurt
1/2 banana (ate the other half with pb immediately upon entering kitchen for survival)
1-2 tbsp peanut butter (Love me some #AdamsNaturalPeanutButter)
1/2 c frozen blueberries (or frozen berry of choice)
Handful spinach (or other leafy green)
1 packet stevia
Blend in Vitamix, transfer to to-go vessel
It’s definitely on the higher calorie side…because I’m breastfeeding twins…and need the fuel! And also because I drink it as my breakfast and it keeps me full. But it can easily be adjusted to a lower cal version and still tastes good (ex. less nut butter, no yogurt, etc…). I buy most of the ingredients in bulk at Costco and TraderJoes.
