Nursing moms who struggle with low milk production will do just about anything to help increase their milk supply. Fortunately, there are several things you can do. There are snacks and cookies you can eat, teas you can drink, and lactation smoothies you can make to ramp things up (read here to find our favorite products to boost milk supply).

The ingredients inside these snacks, teas, and smoothies are considered milk-boosters. Some of those ingredients included are fenugreek, brewer’s yeast, oats, and nuts. Spinach and flax contain phytoestrogens, which are also thought to promote lactation. What’s great about smoothies is that you can combine several of these milk-boosting foods quickly together. It’s also an easy and fast way to get several of these ingredients in your system.

So what are some yummy lactation smoothie recipes? We’ve found 5 that we love that we had to share.
