What is a Breastfeeding Smoothie?

A breastfeeding smoothie is a smoothie that is designed to help nursing moms increase their breastmilk supply. It can also help you to lose the baby weight because they serve as a healthy meal replacement as well. This smoothie is packed with healthy ingredients like oats, flaxseed, and coconut which are known to help give your milk supply a boost. It is also delicious and filling so you won’t be tempted to snack on unhealthy things.

Breastfeeding smoothies are also called lactation smoothies. They contain galactagogues which are foods or herbs (or sometimes both) that are known to increase lactation.

All of my breastfeeding smoothies always call for a breastfeeding-safe protein powder because getting enough protein is directly linked to breastmilk supply. And as a side thought, so is drinking enough. If you are not hydrated you cannot create a lot of breastmilk. So this and all my other lactation smoothie recipes always add a one-two-THREE punch towards increasing your milk supply.

  1. hydration (Check this out if you need a better idea of how to stay hydrated while breastfeeding.)
  2. protein (Check this out if you are wondering if it is safe to drink protein powder while breastfeeding.)
  3. and lactogenic foods! (Here are some more lactogenic foods you can add into your diet to increase breastmilk supply.)

Can Breastfeeding Smoothies Help You Lose the Baby Weight Postpartum?

YES! I firmly believe that breastfeeding smoothies are one of THE best ways to help you lose the baby weight postpartum while still getting all the nutrients you and your baby need.


By helping you to avoid snacking on unhealthy foods and by providing a filling meal replacement that is low in calories but high in nutrients, you will be on your way to postpartum weight loss in no time!

Breastfeeding smoothies are to the only way to lose that excess baby weight, but when used in combination with my other top tips I use to lose the baby weight by 6 weeks every time, they can be a powerful tool to start feeling more like yourself again after baby comes by losing weight and getting your energy back. (As much as you can with sleepless nights of course.)

Tips for Making this Breastfeeding Smoothie for Lactation

  • You don’t HAVE to use frozen fruit in this smoothie, but it makes a better texture if you do. If you don’t have frozen pineapple you could use fresh or even canned and just add ice instead.
  • Not everyone likes their smoothies the same texture. Just add more coconut milk if it’s too thick for you or some ice if it’s too watery.
  • I personally like making this smoothie with either vanilla whey Shakeology or vanilla So Lean and So Clean. But you can also make this smoothie even MORE lactogenic by using a specific lactation protein powder like Majka or Milk Dust. However, they do both have a distinct flavor and aren’t my favorite to blend with this traditional flavor combo.
